9 Months (and a half) Photos

A few weeks ago, we had Zuzu's pictures taken.  The weather was lovely, so we wanted to find a pretty outdoor location, and after talking over a few options with our photographer, we decided to go to the campus of the university where I went to grad school.  It makes for a lovely background, and obviously I spent many, many hours there, so it was kind of nice to have it commemorated in photos.

Zuzu was not in a super good mood that morning and she had a couple of meltdowns during the photo session, which is unlike her since she's usually able to roll with whatever we're doing as long as Mama and Daddy are there.  Anyway, our photographer was patient and she still got some really sweet pictures.  Here are a "few" of my favorites:

check out the tulips!

I look kind of awkward here, but I love how she's standing up so tall.


Patty-cake under the magnolia tree.

This one is so sweet.  It's maybe my very favorite.  Mostly because of the tree

How'd my baby get so big?

Interested in Mama's necklace.  Not interested in the camera.
Sitting with Dada.

Not quite walking, but standing tall!

Wouldn't be Zuzu without a crazy face.  Love the fish lips.

Sweet girl.  Such good posture!


  1. Adorable. I can't believe you didn't take any with the scenic Thurtene pavilions in the background. :)

  2. Can't stand the cuteness! Even if she wasn't having a stellar photoshoot you certainly got some lovely photos. Maxwell liked the fish lips one best...he squealed and tried to grab my iPad. :)

  3. Love the laughter, the standing, the Eliza tree...beautiful babe!

  4. Love those Magnolia tree photos. At least spring decided to appear for the photos a bit.

    And the fish lips! Looooove.

    p.s. B pulls tops off tulips. One in our yard is now topless. Hah.

    p.s.s. I love David's shoes!

  5. These are gorgeous. I love them all- particularly the last one- looks like a college graduate in the photos! :)

  6. They are all wonderful!! I especially love the one of her holding both of your hands. So sweet!

  7. I adore the last one! She is such a pretty girl!

  8. Beautiful your necklace. And her face seems to be changing! Or is it just me?

  9. What a doll! I love the ones under the magnolia tree as well.
