big baby blues

When I have this monster camera in front of her those baby blues get even bigger.
Already showing the classic Kartchner characteristics: silly, dramatic, daddy's girl. When you hold her she coos, smiles or laughs and she'll straighten her legs so she can stand up. Which isn't surprising since her sisters were both walking pros at 10 months, busy finding every flaw in my child proof system. No doubt in my mind she will follow their steps.
Giddy about this face!!! ♥♥♥♡♡♡ ♥♥♥
My mind is filled with swirling thoughts today. Thoughts of life, blessings, choices.
Exciting thoughts about the future. Including launching a new project the beginning of February. Thinking of how Dear Lizzy has grown over the years.
Then my mind always circles around to the things that mean the absolute most to me. Collin, my girls & my family-I'll just twirl in those happy thoughts until I'm dizzy and fall over.;)

You can still enter the necklace giveaway from Ruche until I choose a winner here soon! I've been reading your comments in the early mornings with Lola and they are heart warming.
PS Link your email to your blogger profile because I love replying to your thoughts and questions.

I had hoped we'd get to see some updates of Lola soon. She's a doll. So expressive. I bet its hard to get anything done. Have a good weekend Liz. xoxo

so nice to see Lola pic updates! She is just scrumptious;D

Julie said...

Lola is simply so cute! Love her big blue eyes. When you replyed to one of my comments, it made my day to see your name in my inbox, glad it makes you happy to read all the comments you get. Can't wait to see what your Dear Lizzy line has in store, and this project you speak of!

Melissa said...

How can you NOT be giddy about that face? She's so cute! She looks like she has so much personality, too.

Excited that you're launching a new project soon! Can't wait to hear the details on that. :)

Oh my gosh she is so precious! Makes me want another baby really bad!!!

Julie said...

Beautiful beautiful girl and eyes! She'l looking a bit less like Q today - maybe she'll be a little mix? Can't wait to snuggle my own new little one and watch her big sister with her in just about 7 weeks! :)

Melissa said...

A_MOMS_LIFE said...

I have a little boy who arrived Dec. 6, so it is fun to hear of all your adventures! I love reading your thoughts about parenting, because I can't totally relate, just can't ever find the words like you do! I recently just purchased the Enchanted pp and love it so much!!!

Ginnie said...

You're killing me smalls! ;) I could just eat her up!!

What a sweet baby girl!!! She is so cute!!

Susana said...

She is so sweet. So happy to hear that you realize what is most important in life and cherish it. Some people come to learn that when it is too late. I imagine you will look back fondly at these years, knowing you enjoyed and made the best of them. I've got 6 little one's ages 8 and under, and I think I'll feel the same way too ;) God Bless you!
Susana

P.S. On a side note, I would LOVE to see a post with some fashion tips. As a mom trying to look cute yet modest, I love how you rock the dress over jeans look (plus I loooove cardigans and fabric roses!) and would love to hear more about it!

Ale Loiacono said...

She is soooooooo beautiful!!! Loved the pictures! :)

karine said...

She's soooo beautiful, like her sisters... and her mother... and her father too ;)
and bravo for those pictures!

Stephanie Buice said...

How beautiful! Such a blessig from God she even makes my heart happy and I don't even know her. Such a darling baby girl

Nancy W said...

Awe, look at that precious baby girl!!! I just want to snuggle her neck!! xoxoxo

Jill Dater said...

I need to say that the birthing video that Colin made had a profound affect on me. I found myself absolutely sobbing in the living room. I still think about it. I think it hit a chord because my two kids are growing up (2 and 6) and even though I would love another baby, that window is closing. Lola seems lovely and I am living vicarously through your pictures.

Sheila said...

I love that she has so much to say.
:) ;) :o ;I :}

She's got the cutest little baby face...

Laurie said...

She's adorable!! At first I thought she looked a lot like Quincey, but now these photos look like Avery, maybe she's a mixture of your other two beauties!! Can't wait to hear about your February project.

lakmichaels2000 said...

Liz, I love reading your blog. It's so bright, cheery and inspirational! When I logged onto it today and saw those Big Blue Eyes I thought, OMG, SO Cute! Makes me miss my boys being babies, they're 9 and 7 now and seem so grown up. Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to seeing what you have in store for February.

pballard said...

I love being a part of your blog.. Watching your kids grow up and all your fancy layouts. A girl after my own heart. Enjoy your weekend. Pam

caroline hancock / Scrappercaz said...

Isabelle D said...

Trop mignone Lola!

JennV said...

Your sweet baby is SO BEAUTIFUL! Great photos! If you do have a moment I would love to know a few things about your photography. I have noticed that most of your indoor photos have a very clean, white look to them. Whenever I take indoor photos they always look yellow and dark, even though I have a nice camera. Any quick suggestions?

Angie... by the said...

No wonder your dizzy with happiness! Her face it just kissable. ♥ Thanks for sharing these precious photos with us.

Missusg said...

Emma said...

Such a little cutie! :)

Lisa said...

She is sooooooo beautiful...thanks for giving me a little "bliss" each day.

Heather said...

How can you even stand the cuteness that pervades your house?! I would be snuggling those babies all the time, which I'm sure the two of you do! You are such a great momma, Liz! Your love for your girls shines right through my computer screen. Thanks for being so positive and uplifting!

Kim Woods said...

Thank you for sharing that sweet Lola girl! I get to take pictures of a friend's 2 week old little boy this Sunday! I'm no pro but will absolutely love seeing that punkin through my lens!

Veronica said...

I'm "aww-ing" and "ahh-ing" here also. Don't ya just love that by the time they are @ a month old, they already have their own lil personality and it REALLY starts showing? The 3rd one typically is "quiet" one, but I think Lola is gonna really make HER mark!
Off to go and clean my screen now.... ;-)

Patty said...

So photogenic and adorable.

Libby said...

Nice title! How come cute headbands weren't available when I was a baby!?!
Adorable.

Noelle Reese said...

You know how some times you see a super yummy looking baby and you think, I would love to scoop up that sweeie pie and kiss her a million times? This is one of those times. :)

Michele Bailey said...

That is one beautiful baby :)!!

Cara said...

She is just so gorgeous!! Both of my girls were daddy's girls from very early on, too. He's a firefighter, and when he gets home after being gone for a couple of days you should see them go nuts! Gianna (almost eleven months does the craziest, cheesiest happy face!) Happy Sunday!
