SPC: with someone

DSC04864

September Self Portrait Challenge is to take a self portrait with someone and include why they are meaningful to you or the moment. Why don't some of my blogging buddies start participating with me this month who aren't yet? C'mon, it'll be fun.

This is me and my littlest daughter. Yesterday we went up to my awesome brother-in-law's awesome house and had a little family day. It was quite enjoyable. He lives in this little perfect spot where you feel like you're on a peaceful holiday every time you're there, no matter what time of year. It overlooks some gorgeous scenery, and we took advantage of it and took the canoes out. She was a little wiggly at times, but she snuggled right into my lap.

Love.

How can I express the importance of this little soul in my life. Look at that face--those little lips and those kissable cheeks. Those eyes take in everything and see the world in a feisty and independent light. She came into this world strong--had to fight for life in the very first moments, and I wasn't even concious to greet her--that strength will serve her well. She loves me. I love her.

Your post inspired me to (finally) stop just enjoying the SPC posts and actually do one! Thanks for the beautiful visual encouragement...

I will post if I ever find a moment in time to do it- in the meantime I will just live vicariously through you and your wonderful sweet life.

Little, fiesty girl. What a blessing. You will never have to worry about her! She will fight for every smile, every tear and every word! Love you.

Beautiful...but now I am curious about the birth. It sounds very juicy--er, traumatic.

Oh my what beauty and depth in both of your eyes. And I agree that face is one impossible not to love.

Beautiful

Ok, I am almost ready to participate in the SPC, and yet...so hard to take pictures of myself. Also, you guys all write so well, mine would be quite simple compared. However, all comments seem so nice and complimentary and would be nice to receive. ;)

Still contemplating....
