Welcome to this month’s edition of the “Life Story Series.”
If you’re new or you’ve missed the past posts, click here: Life Stories: The Archive.
In case you need a refresher, “Life Story Series” is a
12 month personal project that myself and a group of very talented photographers are participating in. It shows just a little glimpse into our lives. It’s a way for us to capture our memories creatively – just us. At the end of this post you’ll find a link to one of my photographer friends that’s playing along and she’ll be linking to someone else. It’s a whole big circle of stories in pictures. So grab a cup of coffee (or tea, or wine), click through and enjoy!
I know I said in a previous Life Story that I’d do a post about each child, in birth order – and finally, here it is! A post devoted to my little Scooter. My tiniest baby. The one that would shriek like the endangered catepillar on The Simpsons the second her belly was empty. The one who would figure out how to get across the house before she could crawl. The little tinker-er.
Scooter, you are smart, sweet and silly. You’re always trying to figure things out and taking toys apart to see how they work. You’re a great builder, too. Recently, you built a giraffe out of real, big-kid legos. You’re a leader and strong. You like to “workout” (do TurboFire) and sing, but you don’t like to dance. You love to run, jump and play.
You make the cutest hula hoop face. You say “I need ta hula hoop” and then wiggle with such concentration, I love it!You’re happy go lucky and you love your long, curly hair. You want to grow it out, like Rapunzel.You test your boundaries and I have a feeling you’ll be in charge one day. But try not to forget to have fun.You are incredibly animated. You show every emotion you have and tell stories with so much expression! You talk…a lot. You’re definitely going to be (one of?) our talkers. You get that from your father You’re stunningly beautiful and I should probably be concerned at the poses you strike when I take out my camera – especially since this is all you and this was completely unprompted.
I love you so much, little Scooter.
