Top 11 of 2011 

In choosing my top 11 pictures, which was a very difficult decision, I realized just how much Julianna has grown/changed in the last year. She has changed from this 7 month old chubby, 'barely sitting up' baby to a full-out running, climbing toddler at 19 months. Her face & body have changed so much in just one year! 

 1.) This was taken in March of 2011. I think it was one of the first good pictures I got of Julianna and Pepper. 

2). I like this picture from April of 2011 because you can see she is just starting to grow some curls in the back of her head! 

3). This was taken in the beginning of May at the park. Love her eyes here. I did notice her eyes were much bluer at the beginning of the year. They have turned into more of a hazel color now. Some days they look grayish blue and other days they look greenish. 

4). This was taken in August at the park. I love putting a hat on Julianna... she's a hat person for sure! 

5). This was taken at the park in August. Yeah, I love to take my camera to the park. I'm "that" mom. 

6). Windy - At the beach house in the Outer Banks, NC 

7). At the beach ... Julianna loves the beach! 

8).  Pepper looking so serious. 

9). Julianna smelling the flowers in the pumpkin patch 

10). Julianna and Daddy - one of my favorites. 

11). Saving the best for last. I just *LOVE* this picture! I think I might print & frame this one!


  1. What a gorgeous daughter! That last picture is a framer for sure!

  2. While they are all great, I think my favorite is #6, I just love everything about it. But, I also agree you should be framing the last one!

  3. These are all awesome. I love them all especially that last one. So sweet. I am so glad you linked up with us. I really enjoyed your photos.

  4. LOVE that last one!! Also the one at the park (don't worry, I'm "that" Mum too ;D) and the windy beach house :)

  5. These are all so sweet - I especially love #5.

  6. So many gorgeous shots, your daughters so adorable! I can see why you love the last one, so beautiful and a wonderful moment, definitely get it printed!

  7. I can tell why you love the last one. That is so sweet. You can just tell she feels so safe in his arms.

    I am with you in taking your camera to the park. Hey, there is usually lots of good life. I mean that shot you captured is adorable.

  8. These are beautiful and sweet --especially the last one! I also love the one of her sitting on the beach. :)

  9. You should totally frame that last one!

    Love the one on the beach, and the one in the playground tube, too. :)

  10. First off, thanks for your sweet words about my blog! That makes my day! These are such darling pictures of your little one! It's so fun to see how much she has grown! Love her curls! So beautiful! That one of her on her daddy's shoulders is darling! I also love the one of her crawling through the tunnel with that cute little hat! So cute! Thanks for linking up with us!

  11. Oh my, what a doll!!!!! I love her curls in the beach shot and the last one is so, so precious!

  12. Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I'm so sorry your grandmother didn't get a chance to meet your beautiful daughter. I'm sure she would have delighted in her.

    I love that last shot, you should definitely frame it! I also love the eyes in the 34d shot and the lighting in the 4th. A great collection for the year.

  13. omg! i love the hat on backwards picture and the two of daddy and daughter! gorgeous captures!
