The simple things.

Yes, new look to the blog, again. I guess I was inspired by what came out of my camera today. Man, how much fun did I have???

At lunch Liv managed to smear avocado all over herself (and the walls) and a full dunk was the only way she was going to come clean. It was hot. She needed some fun. Owen found me a clean 5 gallon bucket and I filled it with water and set it in the outdoor shower then plunked her in it. She thought it was the best thing ever! I have no idea why we haven’t discovered this sooner. She can stand up if she wants and I don’t have to worry about the bucket tipping over on her. She can sit down and play. It was so fun to watch her have a ball. And of course I snapped away.

The sound that goes with this face is so funny – a full out squeal most of the time.

This is my very favorite and really the inspiration for the blog change. I have to say though, it looks way better when you see a bigger version. If you click on it you can do that.

What I love most about these is they so represent Liv now. Her personality just radiates out of these pictures. She’s so busy all the time. Her personality is HUGE and we’re having so much fun watching her discover the world. She has a mind of her own, her own way of doing things. I love how she so easily expresses her emotions and I hope she always has the freedom to do that.

These have all been edited because the light was really sucky. They aren’t the best of the best, just a sampling. And, these are just a teaser… I have something up my sleeve so check back for more info about that.
