Five Years, Five Months

Hello, little photo blog. I am very sorry I have neglected you for two months. My friend is going to loan me his extra camera to play with for awhile, though, so maybe I’ll be inspired to take some pictures again. In the meantime, even though I’m actually posting this on June 1, I’m dating it May 2, so that I can keep things organized.

Last month (April) I forgot to take her picture on the actual day she turned 5 years and 4 months. This month (May), I didn’t forget, but she fell asleep on the way home and so this is what I got:

Sleepy

The next day she was awake, though! So here is 5 years, 5 months, 1 day:

Sunshine Girl

Five Years Four Months

Five Years Four Months

This month marked the first month I’ve ever forgotten to take a picture of her on the 2nd of the month. I’m bummed that my streak was broken. I even had it written on my calendar. Oh well, sometimes like happens. This was taken the day after at the church Easter egg hunt. It will have to do!

Five Years, Two Months

Apparently I wasn’t ready to do another Project 365. I’ll try again one of these days, but there’s just too much going on in my life right now. In the meantime, the Little Girl is yet another month older!

Day 7: 1.7.2010 – Pyrrhuloxia

Pyrrhuloxia

I used to mistakenly think this fellow was a female Cardinal, but he is actually a “Pyrrhuloxia” – something I had never heard of before I found him online. Some people have suggested he be called “Desert Cardinal” since that is their basic habitat. I don’t disagree!

Day 6: 1.6.2010 – Sterling Silver

Sterling Silver

One of the things I love most about living in Phoenix (besides not having to shovel snow in the winter) is that there are flowers all year round of one sort or another. Here is a January rose – the variety is one that my mom had in our front yard for as long as I can remember.

Day 3: 1.3.2010 – Christmas Tree

So I promised myself I wouldn’t get too crazy about taking a picture every day or posting every day, but I thought I’d do a little better than this! Anyway, playing catch up today.

Christmas Tree

The Christmas tree was taken down the next day, but I got this pretty shot and had some fun with the lights which you will see some of in the coming days.
