Swing for the fences

001

Big K turns 8 today. I don't know how to best put into words how amazing it is to see her grow up right before my eyes. I still remember the very first time seeing her amazing little face, and how we had to spend almost everyday going back to the hospital due to jaundice. So much has changed in the past 8 years and through it all, I can still count on Kristin to:

- be an amazing big sister
- love her family
- snore at night
- play with reckless abandon
- being open to trying new things
- having smelly feet
- smile that goofy smile

Happy Birthday Kristin!

I had to dig through the archives to find these, as I don't have any of her baby photos online. Can't believe how much she has changed, yet still looks the same.

  26. Can you tell me what kind of camera do you use? I'm an amateur photographer and my camera doesn't have this quality. I would really like to take pictures as sharp as yours.
