i am chloe

can you guess i am
my antics
my expressions
my spontaneity
my elfish behavior

We went to our daughter's house Saturday morning to watch the kids while she ran in the Philadelphia 5k Rocky Balboa race

chloe was perfectly 2-years-old

she pulled on an over-sized skirt  

plucked a princess crown on her noggin

and went about the business of being 2

I had the joy of capturing some of her magical moments
the princess and her pop-pop
being sweet
being coy
letting PopPop kiss her cheek
(oh, who can resist those soft cheeks)
being resolute in a stare-down
being vocal about a sibling offence 
being aggrieved
 raider has a special attachment to chloe
she shares her food with him
but only if she wants  
 each child... so unique... overflowing with personality and individual talents 
jammie clad... climbing cherub... crafty keri... chocolate faced... chapped lips...
photobomer...chillin' sisters... quiet play...
hanging out at their house is truly delightful 
and their mom (with  a friend) braved the chilly morning temps to run a race.  she did it in 9 min 7 sec miles with a 28:22 finish.
what . a . champ!

Oh, Lorraine, what a perfect two-year-old you have. The expressions and "antics" are spot on.

I adore her princess hat, which you, no doubt crocheted. I'm warming up my skills for the arrival of cupcake, and having a lot of fun doing it.

I'm like super impressed with anyone who braves the elements to run or walk or just shuffle in a race. Congrats to your beautiful daughter, who looks so much like her mom.

P.S. I can't tell, but I think we may have the same pair of glasses.

What a beautiful picture! Lorraine, you are so talented! I like the hat but most of all, those little dimpled hands. A great shot of your hubby too. : )

Congratulations to Jamie!!

Those babies are adorable but Chloe, too cute! If we were to have another baby, and we're not now that we have three grown kids, a little girl would have been Chloe. I super-love that name.
Congrats on your daughters race, 28 min is pretty impressive.

Just a little something from Judy said...

This blogger is thankful that your camera went with you on your stay with the grandchildren. These pictures speak volumes, and the little ones are just too cute! I like the ones of John and Chloe. Precious moments that one wishes would stand still in time.

Congratulations to your talented daughter! An impressive time to run that race. She looks like you, Lorraine.
