Outside with N-PSF


You know the feeling you get when you realize that you have very few pictures of your second child?

No? You are a better parent than I!

I realized that is past weekend.

I have folders upon folders of pictures of #1. For her first year of life? They are organized by what week of life she was in.

Now, my pictures are organized by month and year. And both girls are lumped into the same folder. No special #2 by week pictures. In fact, I don’t even think I captured a 5 month picture of her.

So, we went outside this weekend for some #2 only pictures with all natural lighting.

And, if I wasn’t feeling so lazy (notice the trend?), I would probably edit these pictures, making her eyes pop, and removing that little foot in the top right corner. So, you’ll just have to use your imagination!

Here’s our sweet #2 in all her glory. At approximately 5 1/2 months (give or take a couple days).

  1. She’s just such a cutie pie! My favorite are the last 2 pics you took! They bring back memories of my oldest niece, Makayla.

    Love, Mere

  2. She is so sweet! It’s funny, but I think I have more pictures of EJ than Libby. EJ’s baby book is twice the size of Libby’s!

  3. Yes, I have felt this way!!! I have been taking pics of Brody like crazy! 🙂 N is so so adorable! 🙂 I listed you as one of my fave blogs…and there is an award for it (which you may already have). Check it out! 🙂

  4. I am totally with you. I am greatly lacking in the pictures of #2.

    N is a cutie and I love how vibrant everything looks in the pictures.

  5. So cute! I was the youngest of 3 girls. My oldest sister had 4 albums of baby pictures, my middle sister had 2 albums, I had none. NONE! I was told all my pictures were on slides. I try to get pics of LM as much as possible. I have noticed he is in the stroller for a lot of them, lol!

  6. And, she is looking cuter than ever too! When you do edit those photos I can already see how AMAZING they’re going to look…wait, not that they don’t already, it’s just that…well, you know.

  7. I know exactly how you feel about the second child syndrome.

    Beautiful shots, especially the second and fourth pictures. They should be framed immediately!

  8. Those are great shots of her and my mom warned me not to take so many pictures of the first because you can never keep up with the rest.

  9. She is absolutely adorable! Don’t worry, they’ll never know. Plus, go back and really look at all of those pictures you have of Izzy, some are probably ones that should be deleted anyway, right? I realized awhile back that I’d kept a lot of out of focus pictures, and ones that were just bad. Getting rid of some of those helped me even it up a tad bit ;).

    She’s precious and I especially love the one on her belly!

  11. I love the pictures of sweet N…. and don’t feel bad… all moms I know have 2nd baby picture slack off syndrome.

    I’ve read both of your guardian angle posts…. and yes I do believe in angles. It is too late tonight to share my stories with you but I diffinately know my life has been blessed by angels. I will share the story with you another time.

    We are so tired because our car broke down at the temple tonight and we had to get a ride home with another temple worker after 45 min of trying to get JOhn’s car to start…. and we just got his car home from the auto repair shop today!!!
    Good night…. have a great weekend. LOve, Lura

  12. What an adorable little munchkin. Came across your blog – very cute. Hope you’ll visit the Land of Oz soon 🙂

  13. So. stinkin. cute. I love that little pom-pom on the top of her hoodie! I was so worried about not taking enough pictures with Charlie that I totally overcompensated…I have tons! lol

  14. O girl I am so right there with you. MY first Child had tons and tons of pictures and well I missed a lot with Number two. MOMMY GUILT here big time! LOL

    These are great pictures…she is so so so cute!

  15. There are probably a similar amount of photo’s of my girls, but the difference is that I kept a better written record of my 1st born than I did my 2nd. But my second had cuter clothes, so that makes up for it. 🙂

    Great PSF

  16. She is beautiful! I think once Maggie hit about 15 months we really slacked off on the pictures so now I am playing catch up!

  17. She is so cute. Loving the stripes.

    BTW. you should see how much less the 3rd kid has in photos. 😉 Poor kiddo

  18. She is adorable! The same thing happened to me (I was the second child). All these pictures of my sister and not nearly enough of me… 🙂

  19. She is ADORABLE! And holy moly girl, your grass is GREEN!!!!

  20. she is so sweet. I find that the middle ones get lost but I have a ton of the first and last 🙂

  21. 5 1/2 months already friend?? she is sooo stinkin cute!! i just want to come over and snuggle her!!

  22. So gorgeous and getting so big!! And btw, we drive the same type minivan! HA!

  23. She’s just precious – I love babies in hoods and hats! : )

    I’m interested to see how well I’m going to do with picture-taking with my third. I totally hear ya there girl!

  24. So precious! No kiddos of my own, but I am a first born, and I’ve had to endure lots of grief from my siblings over my pic ratio to theirs!

    I left you a little gift on my blog! Happy Friday!

    She is so beyond cute it hurts! I can’t believe how much she’s grown so fast!

  26. Love these shots of Miss N!
    What a cutie!

    I am not only jealous of your photography skills…I am equally jealous of your obvious green thumb!

  27. She is so precious and looks great in those pastel colors.
    Getting the same amount of pictures of the second one is much harder. I have done pretty well with taking the pictures, but if you were at my house you might assume I only have one child because Austin is the only one on the walls or in frames on shelves.
    Have a great weekend!

  28. I am also in awe of your green grass – WOW, what I’d give for that 🙂 And those are super CUTE pictures, she is a gorgeous little girl, no doubt!

  29. My brother complained about not having a lot of photos of him (he is the youngest of 3) as a child all his life UNTIL he had his second child and offered my parents an apology. He gets it now!

    And she is adorable!!!!!

    Thanks for your visit and great comment the other day.

  30. I love reading your stories. I’m the mother of four and I feel the same way about my pictures. It’s hard to keep up when you have more than one

  31. Oh my, she is a beautiful little girl.
    And your grass is sooo green I envy you. Our grass is still mostly brown but is starting to turn green.

  32. What a sweetie! She is too cute! And so lucky to have her own photoshoot 🙂
