hadley and her 6 year old pictures.

check out hadley's 5 year old pictures---to see how much she's grown :)

this is my favorite reason for taking pictures of my littles each year, around their birthday...i love to see how much they have changed.
especially when they are little---they just change so much from year to year.
last year, hadley had a bit of a baby face going on still...this year, i feel like she looks like a young girl.
growing up, i tell ya.  growing up.

yes, i am well aware of the dirt that is lingering underneath her neck.
the girl has a serious tickle thing going on and it's nearly impossible to clean it.
pick your battles, people.








she has such a mixture of sass, spunk, tenderness, joy, attitude and love swirling around inside of her.
i often think, "if i could just be more like hadley..."
she is such a joy.
we love you hadley bean---you are precious.

  8. I don't think I would have noticed the dirt had you not said anything ;) She's such a beautiful girl, and from what you've said it sounds like she has a wonderful heart- but of course she does, because she has a wonderful mama!! Hope you are doing well in your last weeks of pregnancy. You are such a rockstar and I really admire you.
