Another "Candy Expert"

December 6, 2011

Touching Her Toes and Biting Her Lip BLOG
On Sunday afternoon, my Mom took Nick, Sarah, and my two nephews to the movies and out for dinner.
We felt Reagan was still a little too young to make it through an entire movie, so she stayed home with us while the other kids went.

The house was especially quiet with two of the three kids gone.
Pat and I got to enjoy a little private time with Reagan which doesn't happen too often.
We had a great afternoon with her and she was in such a good mood. It was as if she knew she had us all to herself and was digging every minute of it!

Her 2nd Birthday was the day before Thanksgiving and with all the craziness of the holiday, I never had the time to get her "2 Year Old" photos done. So I stole about 20 minutes of our afternoon to get some special photos of my baby girl!

Remember last year, when I did the cake smash photos?

Well this year was a lot less messy, but still SUPER CUTE!!
(I know, I am more than a little biased)

Candy Expert Pop Collage
These two photos are my favorites of the day and just make me smile from ear to ear!
Her expressions and the way she is sitting make her look like a such a big girl.
She is getting tall, her face is changing a little too, and her hair is getting SO LONG.
I cannot get over how "mature" Reagan is starting to look.

This little outfit was Sarah's..... I thought the shirt was so fun and festive and Reagan really is quite the "Candy Expert". She knows just where we hide it in the house and will hover in the general area after dinner:))

Sarah was exactly the same age as Reagan when she wore this. If you want to take a walk down memory lane, click HERE to view photos of a very little Sarah. I get great joy bringing out some of the oldies but goodies for Reagan to wear! They are just as good if not better, the second time around. Still cute and in great shape, but also filled with lots of love and memories:)

Candy Expert Two Fingers BLOG
As you can see, our resident "Candy Expert" is not happy when her candy is taken away!

While we are truly enjoying everything about "Two", we are finding out that it comes with a little attitude!!!

She is beyond precious! Maybe some candy canes in her future?

Marla said...

LOL, these are SO precious! I love how she's grabbing her little toe in the first one. And she is growing too quickly, tell her to quit that!!

Wanda said...

Yeah....but 2 was never cuter. Love these pictures Lisa. What a doll - edible.

Hope you're week has started great. Fab news that you're not on court duty during this period.


Sharon said...

Such a cute shirt on BOTH girls!

Love Letters To China said...

Such a little cutie pie! I can't believe how big she's gotten in just one year. :-)

Brooke said...

Lisa- These are ADORABLE!!!! She is too cute for words! :) xoxo Brooke

Gail said...

She is more than adorable if that's possible!! Love all her expressions.
She definitely looks 2 now, time needs to slow down I think.

I remember that post from 3 years ago, Sarah was so little. How great that you got some alone time with Reagan, I also try to do that with each one of my kids during this busy holiday time. :)

Hope your week is going well, Lisa.

hugs, Gail

When I clicked on your blog this morning, I was absolutely blown away!! Awesome pictures!!! We have the COOKIE EXPERT SHIRT w/the colorful striped tights! I have been trying to find a cute cookie jar and fill it with cookies and do a photo shoot w/my girl! That child is truly a COOKIE LOVER!!!! She would eat them 24-7 if I allowed her! I love your "white backdrop"!! *would you mind sharing how you achieved it again. I remember you sharing it on one of Reagan's photo shoots, but can't remember just where*

Thank you for sharing, I love your "eye" for cute pictures! Reagan looks deliciously cute!!! She is growing so much!!! I clicked back on the "last year" photos and was just amazed at how much she has changed. I mean really...could that baby girl get any more adorable!!!!

PS Are the Christmas pics coming soon? :)

Kayce said...

Cuteness! Love the picture of her with the lollypop laying down. I remember the post of Sarah wearing that shirt! Wow! :)

TanyaLea said...

Pretty sure she could not be any cuter!! :)

Merry Christmas!

JMCS said...

Absolutely darling! Reagan could not be any cuter and great pics Lisa.

Stefanie said...

She's a DOLL! And I love putting clothes that my 'big' girls have worn on my 'little' girls, too... brings back so many memories :)
P.S. Loved the flashback of Sarah when she was 2! Adorable - BOTH of your girls :)

Unknown said...

so sweet!

Catherine said...

She's growing up so quickly! How is it that once our sweet girls hit 2 that babyhood leaves so quickly and toddlers/preschoolers are ever present?

Sweet pics of both the girls in their 'Candy Expert' shirt!

Mimi said...

Oh my God, I LOVE that last one, with the filthy look!
Lisa, you have so much fun ahead in the next few years! Attitude here we come!

Tara said...

She's adorable. I can see a toddler peeking through that baby face!

Have a wonderful Tuesday, tara

Esther said...

She is beautiful!!

jade said...

Cute with and attitude! What a nice combination (I know all about it, we have a similar girl in our house here...) - I agree with Marla: tell her to slow down growing up!

Shari said...

I see she still likes her two little fingers better than any candy;) Amelia is still the same way with her blanket - shhh don't tell her I told you;)
I remember when Sarah wore that shirt - and those cute little jeans...if I remember correctly they were a splurge at The Gap:)

teena said...

LOVE these, Lisa! Another fabulous photo really inspire me to strive to take better photos. And your subjects are simply adorable! Love how much Reagan loves her two little fingers!

Jodee said...

Oh my word! These pictures are soooo adorable! I completely agree -- Reagan is starting to look sooo grown up! Don't blink!

Virginia said...

Oh, my word, two is sooo cute on that baby girl. She really is growing but I love that she's still partial to those two sweet little fingers.

DiJo said...

OMGOSH!!!! LOVE her!! I wish she and Emme could be pals! I think they would get along infamously!! They could hide things all over our houses together!!!

Sweet and precious Lisa!!!


DiJo said...
