My entry is #405. My sweet baby was sick and wondering why she felt so yucky. Such a hard thing for a little one to understand when they just feel gross. Enjoy and thank you for the opportunity to play along and see all these wonderful shots!

this is my daughter, she sat in this little corner while her twin sisters were playing around her. You can tell her mind is just wondering……

My entry is #209, we were at the local pumpkin patch and were were about to leave because the weather had gotten so windy and cold and I hadn’t brought jackets or hats. We came to an open grass area and I wanted to get some family shots..but my son decided he was too cold for that so he grabbed his sisters hand and took off running for the car. They would stumble and he would stop to pick her back up..it is one of my favorite memories of them.

My daughter and son went to preschool together but when he turned 5 he was off to the “big” kid school…. Kindergarten. We had to watch from behind a school gate as he went out on the playground to line up and meet his new friends and teacher. She was not a happy camper that day but you could see the look in her eyes of what it must be like to be out there with the big kids. And I know her…she wondered were the ready for her?? 🙂

This is pretty exciting to be a part of this community and get a chance to share what i love most.

Number 799:) Liam discovered two things that day…cottage cheese (which provided it’s own fantastic set of photos) and how to make BIG splashes in the tub. He was dead serious about the splashing too, very focused. But when the water would hit me or daddy…belly laughs!!! So worth the soaking wet floor:)

My photo is of my Son Ben- entitled “Summer Fun” only because “Not so clean fun” or “Wonder what’s on the other side of this fence” were too long for a title… he is my stubborn, yet tender little guy and he always keeps me on my toes… the number has fluctuated from 804-829…

My entry is No. 825, I took a few quick shots last night of my 7 year old daughter, Annika. It’s frightfully hot here in Australia, but it also means she gets to wear her many pretty frocks:). I’m in awe of all of the beautiful, inspiring images here, it’s the first time I’ve entered! Vxx

We just fixed the problem and the Linky Tool is now open again. 🙂 We’ll keep it open a little bit longer than usual because of that.

My post is #810, which was taken in a fleeting moment while my son quickly glanced into a nature exhibit at the Cape Cod Natural History Museum.

This week’s theme showcases so many photos with such wonderful interactions amongst children and their world. The spirit of inquiry is so prominent in 783, 786, 800, 806, and 807 – just to name a few. I love how well the theme lends itself to images of children doing what they do best – encountering new worlds of wonder.

I used a picture of my very innocent 5 day old baby and her not-so-innocent 3 year old triplet brothers. They are in absolute awe of her!

My entry is #782–my first photo challenge ever. Just discovered your site about two hours ago. Figured I had to enter before I lost my nerve!

The image is of my lil’ girl, eating the first fruits of the season. Teeny, tiny strawberries that were as tart as they were delicious. Her expression, so pensive and amused, was what struck me as being simply WONDERful. Thanks!

It’s been freezing, and snowing, and all sorts of crazy here lately. This is my 4 year old, dreaming of the beach. #765. This is my first entry, and only my second blog post on my new blog! I was feeling daring today 🙂

I was downloading pictures from my camera and found the “pondering” shot. I absolutely love it. One of my daughters took it … and I love the innocence of it all. The way his face is reflected on the table, the way his eyes are so deep. I think it is beautiful. I posted it on my blog today not even knowing there was a contest or this website. Thank you Kelle Hampton for letting me know!

I’m so excited! I just found out about this site today via Kelle Hampton’s blog, so I decided to enter this week’s contest! Mine is entry #764 of my son Max (almost 15 months). There are SO many beautiful entries! I love them! In my photo, Max is playing with a red ribbon from the very first present he opened on Christmas in December. He’s held onto it ever since and nothing makes him happier. 🙂

#760 is my girl. After a LONG battle trying to conceive we finally got our boy on St. Patrick’s Day. I felt lucky, but a bit greedy because deep down I was incomplete; I always wanted a girl. Then a little miraculous surprise came on MLK Day of 2010, I was pregnant without even trying! Zara was born on 9-10-10. She has been the most beautiful, happy, joyful, sweet little baby I have ever known! They have made a mama out of me and I am quite certain that am the happiest woman alive.
