First Birthday Pictures!

This week, I had Sarah Kate's one year old picture made. We are two months late getting it taken. She is always bumping her head or scratching herself or a flair up with baby acne,etc. These, along with being busy delayed her one year photo shoot. I took her on Tuesday afternoon and it was an ordeal. I was worn out and sweating when it was all said and done. She would not sit, would not stay in place, tried to get away, you name it.
Here is Emily on her one year birthday.

Do you think my girls look alike????????

I think they look different, but I think they look like sisters.






I took these pics before we left the house this morning. It is soooooo hard to get them to both look at me and smile for a picture.

i came over from kelly's korner. your girls are both just dolls. i can definitely tell they are sisters, but they each have their own look.
i have a boy and a girl and while my daughter looks all girl and my son is all boy i think they look alike. it's crazy how it works that way.
just thought i would say "hi" since i check your blog from time to time~

I think they look very different but like they are related.
I can't believe how much more hair SK has than Emily at this age. Their coloring is so different too. They are both just BEAUTIFUL!

They are enough alike to tell they are sisters and enough different to have their own identity! They are both BEAUTIFUL!! Love the pictures!

I think that their faces look a lot alike. I think that their hair and coloring are just way different. They are just too cute!! It seems from the pictures that their personalities are different, too. They are just so precious!!
Sarah Kate's one year old picture is precious (Emily's was too). I can't believe how much more hair SK has. I just love her hair & bows! I think they're different, but definitely sisters. We need to get together sometime to let SK & Wells battle it out :-)

The picture of SK is BEAUTIFUL! Of course you can't go wrong with a great subject.

I do think your girls favor, but also look different. I can't get over the difference of SK and E's hair at this age!

Laurie,

I've been coming over from Kelly's blog for a little bit now and I just had to comment on how darling your girls are...and so are you! I think your girls look different, but they do look like sisters. :)

They are both PRECIOUS!!! SK is just too darn cute. I found you from Kelly several months ago and love reading your blog too. And can I tell you how much I loved learning about being CHAWED?! hee hee
Both Emily and SK are darling!
They do look alike but I think it is crazy how much more hair SK has than Emily!

I think their 1 year old pics look really similar but that in real time they look different (but VERY sisterly). :-) And they are both WAY above average on the Gorgeous meter!!!!

Definitely sisters but not look alikes! It is SO hard to get kids all looking- when we added a 3rd, it got even harder (so I got a new camera! ha!)!
Rebekah said…
I think they look different, but how cute are they...both of them!!!! The pics turned out just beautiful! I know what an ordeal it is. I just did "6 month" pics yesterday. I was sweating and had raised blood pressure when we were all finished!!! Oh, our girls!
Kim said…
I think I've told you before I don't think the girls look alike at all! Both are equally adorable! I miss you guys...let's get together for dinner soon!

Both of their one year pictures are just gorgeous. I know exactly what you mean. I always leave photo sessions a hot, sweaty mess! LOL! I think I work harder than the photographer.

Beautiful pictures of beautiful girls! You are so blessed!!

Complicated

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chu

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
