Independence!

I love how these pictures capture the pure joy of learning a new trick or skill when you're not quite 2 years old and crave every little bit of independence...


Alice loves to ring the doorbell as we enter the house. I usually hold her and let her ring for a little while and then she screams in protest when I move on. On this day she discovered that she can ring the door bell all by her little own self!


Look how tall!
Nothing gets better than that! I can just hear her saying "Ha Ha, Mom!"

Ah, the doorbell. One of those things you love and hate all at the same time. She's such a sweetie.

JaNae, I just looked at your last 2posts. Your family pictures are adorable! (that might be something to do with the cute people in the photo shoot). I'm impressed! I really enjoy the fall too. Also I loved seeing your little independent Alice and her huge smile! There's really nothing else quite like the magic of childhood. Thanks for your comments on my blog, too - it's fun to stay in touch!

She grows really fast, doesn't she?

Love your family picture! That's impressive for a tripod to capture everyone looking! You sure have beautiful falls!
