If you read yesterdays post at all, then you'll know that I'm especially loving my little ones lately. Even more so than the usual. For the past couple of flashbacks, I've been posting pictures from Eleanore's (my oldest child, for anybody that might be new to our blog) baby days. I'm continuing on with that trend today, only- I'm sort of taking it to an extreme.
As I was going through photo folders looking for which set to use, I just kept collecting pictures. After our most recent happenings, I want to absorb and cling onto every memory that my mind will allow. I want to frame every picture that I've ever taken, and cover my walls from ceiling to floor.
Well, I can't do that. Not yet at least. Not in this house.
Maybe when we eventually buy a house, Christopher will let me lose my mind and freely spend thousands of dollars on having photos developed and framed, but- for now these 10 (yes, ten) sets of side by sides and stacked shots will have to do.
Christopher's sister Steph made us that onesie. In case you maybe wouldn't have otherwise noticed, there is a picture of Me and Christopher (taken on my cell phone from his basic training graduation) on the front of it.
That was our favorite onesie of hers.
The blanket that she was laying on in these ones, was a teeny tiny sleeping bag that we bought from the Goodwill Bins in Portland Oregon, before we moved down south to Texas. We used to always put it on the couch, when we'd lay her down beside us.
I had taken these using a red setting on our Samsung. Oh how I love them.
A precious little girl in a sailor suit.
Another thrift find, from before she was born. She only wore this suit once, the day we took these pictures. There were too many buttons, and she just looked generally uncomfortable.
But it was worth it, right?
Upside down time.
And "Mommy has nothing better to do than dress me up in silly outfits", time.
Don't give me that look, little girl. I'll get out the ridiculous outfits, again.
Does this one even really need a caption?
A lot of people in Portland love you, sweetheart.
Because everything tastes good when you're a baby.
A lady that I had met online bought her that toy, when we first came to town. The gal and I didn't end up being friends, but I did think of her often. Especially when Eleanore was chewing on her yellow friends bumpy hands.
Look at how cute she looks, wearing the beautiful bonnet/cardigan/blanket that her Great Nana made for her.
The blues brought out the color in her eyes just perfectly.
We saved this, of course. Evelyn will surely be photographed and seen wearing it as well.
And then the end of today's overwhelming amount of Eleanore-baby-pictures... the "what! do something!" frame.
I thought that was a good place to stop for today.
But um. Expect more next week. Maybe I'll start in on her toddler years...
If you're new to Flashback Friday, don't be shy! Heres how we do it-
Grab an old photo (or if you're like me, a bazillion), write a little bit about it, and link up! We love love love to invade your personal Polaroid history, so don't be shy, post your photo, and expect a lot of comments starting with "awwwwww". Unless its a sad post, and then... well those might start with "awww" too. I swear, most weeks I cry at half of your flashbacks (I know, I'm pregnant, so-). Anyways- (please please) don't forget to either text link back to this post, or grab one of our buttons from down below.
