Best Face of January

This week, the photo challenge at I Heart Faces is the Best Face picture taken in January.  It's kind of cool, because it's the "people's choice" voting, which means that you can go over there, check out all the awesome pictures and then vote for my photo to be the best.  And, I'm counting on all of you to do just that!  Seriously.  Go do it.  Well, you can start voting on Tuesday, so do it then!

Do you see the bruise over her eye?  That's where Zeke threw a softball into her face..

I guess it might take her a bit longer than normal to crawl with a  Zeke-monster holding her back..

So, I've noticed I take pictures of Lily in the same places everyday: her Bumbo seat, the exersaucer/jumper thing, Tummy Time, and on her play mat.  Bear with me for now..I'm assuming in a few more months I will be chasing her all over the floor while she crawls away from me and the camera.  I did introduce her to snow yesterday, and she took it like a champ but wasn't sure about it.  Not surprising..we might try this shot again today or tomorrow.  This week's challenge at 'I Heart Faces' is "winter wonderland" or something similar.  We shall see.

The challenge over at "I Heart Faces" this week is 'smile.'  I love this picture of Jesse's cousin and our new cousin-in-law, right after they are pronounced man and wife.  Such sweet and excited smiles.  I think the black and white helps keep this simple.

I couldn't decide on which one, so today gets three.

I feel that Zeke is encouraging Lily to crawl so they can play.
I just wanted to show off her first pair of jeans.  I was really excited.

365 Day Challenge

Well.  I've re-vamped my blog, and am going to give this challenge a try: I'm going to try and take at least one picture of Lily per day for a year.  I realize it sounds easy, but I see this being more difficult than I anticipate.  I highly doubt I will blog each day, so more likely, we'll see one blog post with several pictures to catch up :) a fellow blogger inspired me (thanks, Kelsey!), so we'll see how this goes.  
I've thought about doing this in the past, but always told myself I wouldn't follow through.  Not sure I will this time, but it's worth a shot, right?  If I don't try, it'll never happen. 

And as my oh-so-sweet husband pointed out, I'm several days behind.  Big deal, I'm starting today!  Well, yesterday, since I took the first picture then. 

I will also post other things, like the I Heart Faces challenges on here.  Let me know if you would like to be sent email updates on these so you don't miss the pictures.
