On Saturday Eliza had two new teeth break through. Her 7th and 8th tooth started to come in so she will soon have four on top and four on the bottom. She's definitely been fussier at times lately. Hopefully she will get a little break from teething before her molars and canine teeth come in.
Today we had a one year old birthday party for Eliza's friend Joelle. They are 6 days apart. It's hard to believe it's been a year since we both had our girls. It's been fun to see them growing up together.
This evening we did family photos and Eliza's one year pictures. It was a very hot evening but I was glad it didn't rain. The sun was out, skies were blue, and I loved the location the photographer suggested. It was called Green Meadow Preserve. There was a pretty field and an area with a community garden with flowers.
Taking photos of a one year old and two year old aren't easy but I definitely think we got some good ones! I can't wait to see them! We weren't able to get any sibling ones because it's tough to get them both to sit but we did get some family ones and individual ones of both of them.
Eliza was really melting down at one point. I hadn't planned on nursing her but all our other tricks to keep her happy weren't working. Fortunately that helped calm her down. She wasn't the most smiley during the shoot but I've learned that with children, the candid photos are just as special as the posed ones. These are the photos and memories that I know I will look back on when they are all grown up. I'm glad we can document this sweet and crazy time in our lives. More soon!
