One little Monkey

It was my birthday last week, so Mia had her birthday dress on...she insisted :) After her nap, we hung out on my bed. She wanted to jump a little....please mama, puh-leeeease.


I love these first two shots.
She was still trying to wake up from her nap.

Then the happiness when I told her she could jump on my bed.

I think she was surprised on how high she went...doing her patented Butt Bounce.

Because she's so contemplative mid bounce and you can see the portraits of Daryl and I in the background, this has to be my Best Shot Monday

LOVE the last one.

Bouncy, bouncy fun! That last one is awesome - what a great mid-air capture! I love that you can see the canvases, too. Isn't it fun to "break the rules" sometimes?

Yep, I love the last one too. The action and the bounce and the fluff of the hair and all the air underneath her is too cute!

Megan said...

Andrea said...

You are the best mom ever. Letting Mia jump on the bed. That last one is awesome. I love that you caught her in the air and her hair is flying up.

It does not get any better than a kid jumping on the bed. Love, love these, but I cannot choose just one favorite. The last one is definitely the most fun. :)

Great work!

I love that last shot - it wants to be framed :)

I love this transition from waking up (and not seeing her face in the first shot) to then being so full of energy and smiling. The butt bounce she does....we call it the atomic butt drop with Ella. She loves to sit on her Daddy's back and do the atomic butt drop.

So cute. The dress too! :)

LOL, bed bouncing = absolute little girl happiness!

Forgive me for meddling in your business, but I think you MUST have that image enlarged and hung in the most prominent place in your house. That last shot is MAGNIFICENT!

natalie said...

Oh, did you use a flash or is that natural light? can you give the specs? I can't seem to capture any good bed bouncing pictures. My room is painted a dark sage green, so it might be that it's too dark in there.
