create (a life): yearly pictures

Ah, it's that time again. The end of summer when my children decide to, against my advice, become one year older. Stay small, I tell them. Growing up is over-rated, Everyone grows up- be unique, be an individual, go against the grain, I advise. They never listen, and so we have the birthday parties then afterwards send out the pictures to document this "over-rated" growing up process (wink).

First there are the wallets, which are my favorite. I love the little, portable size and enjoy designing my own. (Tutorial from previous post, here.) And then there are the standard, growing-up-much-too-quickly shots...

...because I promise you, just yesterday, both of these kiddos nestled perfectly into my arms. I've heard recently that "the days are long, but the years are short." Indeed, they are. 

Wishing you a lovely weekend!
