Sunshine and Denim

It is sundress time! Elise had to wear a little cardigan this morning but by noon the cardigan was no longer necessary.  Can you believe we had winter storm advisories a week ago today?! 

I wrote yesterday that my favorite day is coming up. It wasn’t today but judging by the buds, I am guessing it will be tomorrow.

I won’t write too much about these photos beyond the mentioning I was on AV mode with my aperture or “F-stop” at F/4.5 on this photo.

Our front yard tree is beautiful in the fall but I love it most in the spring.

Here the camera is set at F/32 and the clouds look great

And here the you can really get the feel for why I love this tree. See what I mean by little neon green balls of life?

And now onto what Beth and my Mom really want to see. Elise in a sundress.

I don’t know why I never thought of this before. Michael has spent hours and hours with OTs who have all, at one time or another, recommended sitting on a stability ball to help him sit still. Elise sat on this ball (not a stability ball just a $2 ball from Target that Michael got for his 2nd birthday) and asked me to take a photo.

There is something about sitting on a ball that takes just the right amount of “work” to stay stable to keep their brain and body occupied enough to not want to make them run around but not too distracted that they can’t (or won’t) listen to you.

Of course she didn’t sit still the whole time. She asked me to take pictures of her kicking the ball and bouncing on the ball too.

Balls are my new favorite portrait prop.

Here is my favorite. Is it just me or did she just grow up? I see more preschooler than toddler in her every day.
