Wordful Wednesday-My Kiddos, Minus One

I’m kind of partial to my kids {{laughing}} and so every once in awhile I find myself feeling compelled to show them off.  Like today.  I took these pictures a week or so ago at Balboa Park in San Diego, and to be honest, I’m pretty proud of myself.  I think these pictures perfectly capture their expressions at time, and quite frankly, I love them. You might notice that child #1 is missing.  Sadly.  Here’s why.

Are your kids growing up at the speed of light, too?

Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, only WITH words. It’s for those of us that can’t contain the chatter, but in a good way. More info. in my tabber box titled WW on the right. Thank you for playing along!

Don’t forget to hop on over to my co-host Amanda’s place (Parenting By Dummies) to see what she has to be Wordful about today!

I’m giving away a Frito-Lay bundle plus {$50 Amex Card} if you are interested.  Click here to enter.

    My kids are growing up so fast too and it depresses me if I sit and think about it. I want them to be “my babies” forever. The photos of your children are good. Very cute!

    You should be VERY proud of yourself…those are MARVELOUS photos, and they do seem to reveal much about their individual personalities.

    Well done, Mama!

    Awesome job Angie! Check out that bokeh and gorgeous subject matter 🙂 I can’t wait to see you post more! Did you get a new camera? Have a great week!

    Great photos. Looks like a fun day. My kids are definitely growing too fast. We were at the beach with friends yesterday and looking at The Girl, who is 7, next to my friend’s daughter, who is 6, The Girl’s body is changing… she’s not prepubescent or anything, but she’s lost all traces of “little” girl and is long and lanky and you can see where she’s going to start to curve when the time comes. It makes me sad…. that’s my baby!

    They are absolutely adorable! I’m not looking forward to the day that Princess Nagger will opt out of photo ops or being plastered on my blog. 😉 And yes, I keep forgetting not to blink – time is flying by way too fast!

    The ARE growing up at the speed of light. My 10 year old is as big as me already and my baby is going to be entering second grade in the fall. All 3 kids are changing before my eyes and I wish I could slow it down somehow.

    Great pictures. And my son is getting really annoyed with my camera lately too. He puts his hands up and says, “No pictures”….I guess I need to find another muse. Maybe my dogs will pose for me. Will I be that weird dog person then?

    Ok Stacy I’m a little new to your blog so I didn’t know about #1’s fall-out with your blog. That photo of her annoyed is fantastic!!!! I laughed so hard I cried! Hahahaha! I love teens.

    These pictures are GORGEOUS! You should be proud.
    And yes, my kids are growing up WAY too fast. Makes me want to cry 🙁
    (two of mine are seniors in highschool now! ack!)

    Great shots. I love the out of focused background. For some reason I can only get the opposite to happen where the subject is out of focus but the background is clear…

    Awesome photos! I love capturing my wee ones real personalities in photos. And I must admit, I ADORE your red heads. Three of our four wee ones have bright red hair (as I did before the awful gray set in… BLAH!). Oh! And the freckles… Too cute!

    She didn’t want to come? How teenager-ish! Tess still wants to be a part of the action, but Luke only just tolerates us… no wait, it’s the other way ’round. I can’t wait for him to grow out this know-it-all stage.
