Just a Girl and her Toys

Victoria definitely has her favorite things to play with.

She spots something fascinating in the distance....

Oh joy! An acorn!

Hmmmm....I have a feeling there is something interesting behind me!

Oh yeah! Party time!

Life is good!

(Do these pictures look better than usual? My husband gave me a fabulous new lens for my camera! Now I can attempt to be a good photographer!)


  1. Oh My - She is so BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!

  2. Adorable doesn't even begin to say it! And dare I say it - her cheeks are beginning to look full!

  3. I'm pretty sure that is not the same child you brought home 5 months ago. Did someone come into your house and switch children on you? She is such a cutie and it sounds like her determination is showing through more and more each day. Keep up the great work Mom!!

  4. way cool pics, and love reading your blog... :-)

  5. I am simply amazed by this precious little girl. I have been following your blog since a bit before you traveled for the 2 and I cried for this one when I saw the first pictures of her, and that she had a family. She is simply amazing, as are you - her mama!

  6. Beautiful girl just doing "her". I adore these photos!


  7. I especially love that last picture of her. It is so natural and sweet and a bit playful! LOVE IT!

  8. Remember the little girl who couldn't smile? Look at her now! Way to go mama!

  9. What a difference! She looks so peaceful and happy.

  10. Did you get a 50mm....a portrait lens? Do tell?

  11. The LIFE in her eyes! It wasn't there when you brought her home and now LOOK AT HER!
