This week's theme over at Stacy's place is Glow...and I knew I had the perfect opportunity with the birthday party on Sunday.
(Full disclosure: I'm pretty sure my dad took this picture. They all got mixed up on my computer!)
But I also thought about my little girl...she sure is glowing.
When she was first born, she was horribly colicky. For three solid months, she really wouldn't let us put her down (she'd scream, she'd cry, she'd wail...) until she finally took a pacifier, learned to calm down, roll over, smile and then...
She became lovely.
Smiley, happy, friendly, sweet, social...with moments that remind us of her colicky days but they are few and far between. She watches everyone around her with interest, she shows an unusual affinity for technological objects (especially cell phones), she eats steadily and patiently (and almost anything), she handles her brothers with ease even when they push her around, she loves books, she dances and giggles when music is played around her, she greets new people with a smile but truly shouts with glee when her daddy walks in the room...she positively glows.
For both of these pictures, I played with the saturation...a new thing for me. I really like how they look! What do you think? I think they gave each pic a nice gauzy glow. The bottom picture was also very dark, so I lightened it up and then did the saturation. I think it has a cool, artsy look...
What's glowing in your life?
P.S. *today* is my blog-aversary! (although i posted last year on 2/7 and then didn't post again til march... so i think i'll celebrate then....if i remember. ha.)
