Princess Anniston

Our little Anniston Kalia is almost 10 months old! Wow - time has gone by so fast! She is currently 17lbs. 13oz. and is 29 inches tall! She makes us smile and laugh all of the time.

I love this picture because you can see Anniston's little teeth. She now has 5!!! 3 on the top and 2 on the bottom.

Anniston sometimes likes to sleep sitting up - well, if that's what you would call this! She is so funny!

Bubbles...Bubbles...Everywhere! She loves to play with bubbles! It's really funny watching her catch the bubbles and then look at her hand awkwardly like..."uuhhh, where did it go?"

She's definitely a beach bum! She loves the sand, sun, ocean and everything else at the beach!

Anniston loves her many books! She has a lot of toys, but she can be entertained for a long time with just a simple board book. Hopefully she'll enjoy reading when she's older!

Besides all of these things she also likes to wave "hi" and "bye-bye" to people, clap her hands and cheer at Daddy's basketball games (she's a great cheerleader!). She likes to eat lots of thing...including PAPER...Why is it that kids like to eat paper so much??? Anniston is a great little dancer...every time she hears music, cell phones or any noise for that matter she boogies and shakes her whole body! It's really cute and funny!

We are so grateful to have our little Princess Anniston in our family! Love you baby girl!

Why Pictures?!?!

For Christmas Adam got me a new camera and I LOVE it! Taking pictures has now become one of my new favorite hobbies! It's so much fun. I took a photography class and our instructor wanted us to write why we wanted to take, here's my reasons:

"I want to capture the everyday moments of my family…the beauty of a smile…the laughter of my children. I want my pictures to tell a story and to be a recorded memory of my life and the lives of those most dear to me.
I want to capture the beauty of nature and the amazing creations of our Father in Heaven.
I want to REMEMBER! My life has already come and gone so fast…recorded partially through words and pictures…but the majority of my life…having neither. Through the pictures that I take, I want to remember the moments that I lived and cherish the memories of all my yesterdays. I want to remember the people that have graced my life and made me who I am…their beauty, strength, love, and tenderness. I DON’T WANT TO FORGET."

Well, I guess that I didn't put that I wanted to take engagement photos, but that's what happened the other day and I had a BLAST doing it! Thanks Afu and Tui for letting me take your pictures! Here's just a few...

P.S... If any of you would like me to take your pictures - let me know! It's good practice, plus...I love doing it!
