We didn’t have a party for Guinevere this year for a few reasons (see here) but I did want a cute outfit for her for our quiet celebration, and I loved this sunny yellow lace romper (from either Groop Dealz or Very Jane – I’m sorry that I don’t remember which!) and I found the “2” hairbow at a local smocked dress boutique in Gainesville, VA called Dharma and Leopolds (a must visit if you are local – I LOVE this shop!!) so I desperately wanted to do a photoshoot.
I set out the colorful crocheted blanket that was mine as a child, and also made an appearance in our maternity photos, and directed Tyler to stand behind me and get her to smile. Instead, she looked anywhere but me –
And kept getting distracted, asking “what’s that?” –
And pouted –
And finally attempted to appease Tyler and I with a very bizarre smile –
So I gave up and went back to what works best with photographing a toddler – letting her do whatever the hell she wants.
Like looking and listening for airplanes –
Running “really fast!” with Daddy –
And going down the slide –
So its official – I’m the mother of a two year old. And I couldn’t be more excited.
For those interested, I found the same hairbow on Amazon –
Won’t you please join us?
Our guest host this week is Claudia from Pretty Little Dahlia! I had actually been meaning to email her and ask her if she was interested in co-hosting since she has always been such a sweet participant and commenter for our Trendy Tot Tuesdays, so I was thrilled when Megan emailed Lindsay and I to tell us that she was it this week! Her daughter Dahlia is the sweetest little girl (and so jealous of that thick hair!) and is definitely a trendy tot 😉
Last week’s Tots of the Week were Brielle and Raya from Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. They’re actually our first repeat tots – they were one of our very first tots of the week, but after this week’s pictures, how could we not feature them again?! So cute!
- Trendy Tot Tuesday is a chance to talk about kid’s style, and pretty much anything goes. Pictures of your cutie, talking about their style (that you buy and dress them in, ahem!), a Polyvore board, linking to the new kid’s line at the Gap – anything! All ages welcome, from you sweet pregnant mamas stocking up a closet to the teenagers that probably pick all their own stuff out now
- This is a hop-style link up – please follow your hosts (myself, Lindsay and Megan) – we are in spots 1-3, and your guest host (Claudia). Also, jump around to meet other bloggers! We hope everyone gains some new followers from this link-up and finds some fabulous new blogs!
