Maggie Ila- 9ish months

So we went to the park yesterday morning and everything seemed perfect for pictures.  Key word- seemed.  It was the first cool, windy, overcast day I've experienced in Texas since I don't know when.  I could actually smell football season and pumpkin bread.  You know when you walk outside and you just smell and feel the season changing?  And there's this rush of emotion and memories from seasons past?  Am I just crazy or do ya'll know what I'm talking about?  Anyway, it was one of those days.  
That amazingness mixed with two happy girls and a playground made it a great morning.  Until I took one picture of Maggie and my battery died.  {insert long huffy breath here} I just couldn't get over it. So after playing for a while and coming home and grabbing a snack and a fully charged battery we went back to the park, and I finally got my Maggie pictures.  {insert conquering Jess face here}
  
I can't believe how long those legs are.  When did she get so big?

I totally know what you mean about "feeling the season change", and your girl is sooo cute! I love these pictures! You seem like you just live in the moment Jess! :)

I know exactly what you mean by the changing of the season too! It totally changes your attitude about things, changes your mood, what you want to do that day... I definitely get it :) I love the pictures of Maggie! She's such an adorable little girl and I love her smile!

I know that smell. I love it, unless it is followed shortly by a dusting of snow. I can't believe how fast your girls are growing. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful photography talents and your beautiful family!

I can't believe how much Maggie has grown and changed in just the two months that I have seen her. And wow she has a mouthful of teeth! I hope she remembers us when we see her again or atleast gets comfortable around us quickly. I am hoping to get one of those wet kisses! Love ya lots and lots!

I am SO with you on the seasons changing thing! I've been feeling it, too. I was telling my mom about how I felt and it seemed like she had this blank stare at me like "Uh, yeah, okay...whatever you say dear," look on her face. Ha ha. But that rush of emotion and memories from the past, just because of the way the air feels is crazy and intense! It happens to me most in the fall, I think.
And HELLO cute baby! She is growing up so fast, and adorable as EVER!
