I'm so happy to FINALLY do Monroe's "year in the life of" post for her second birthday...I'm only two months late!;) Better late than never! 

It's BANANAS to think of the transformation that took place between age 1 and 2 for our little Monroe! She went from baby, to toddler, to little girl in ONE year!! She brings SO much light and JOY to our family! Her smile, her little voice, and the way that she pronounces "Cin-da-lolla" (Cinderella, lol) just melts our hearts!!! She's so playful and her happiness is so contagious, it's amazing! What a blessing she is to our family, we love this little girl to pieces!

Amelia! I love all of these! I'm so inspired to take more pictures of my kids. Can you do a blog post dedicated to tips on how you make time to photograph your own family? :) Something I have not mastered yet...I feel like I'm just trying to keep up with everyone else's photos. Love, love, love these of your sweet little family. :)
