PRINCESS BRIGHT EYES TURNED THREE-

HOW is it possible
that or sweet little 
ANNA IRELAND
(known here as BrightEyes)
is already THREE?

But - she is.
I posted these on Facebook
but for those of you that are
not on Facebook I am posting these here.

These are straight from my daughter's camera.
All I did was watermark the bottom of them.

Sitting-
I love the way the sunlight dappled through
and put the little 'teardrop' on her right cheek.
That's my girl!
Always smiling-

Sometimes "posing"


Loving the sunlight on her sweet face


Is it just me or do YOU see a halo
around this sweet angel?
(and maybe an angel behind her?)


Photo shoot is over and 
OFF SHE GOES!
As our Ria used to say...
"An' the beauooiful princess runned away"

Hey---looks like you are losing
your skirt.
Better YOU than ME!
Have a beauoofil day!!

your photo name

So sweet! So photogenic, too! I can't believe it's been three years since I've been reading your blog - I remember when you posted that she was born! -Jenn

It can't be possible that she's three already....she is just a little angle!

If you discover a better start to a cool morning, maybe don't let me know---my heart is so full of this one, I don't think it can hold much more. Absolutely precious. And what IS it with little sprites losing their skirts in flight? I think it's the slipper equivalent of the fairy-girl set.

And your own heart must be running over---we are SO blessed.

These are really darling, Diana. I love them all, but the 'angel one' got to me. Happy Birthday to BrightEyes! I hope she had a fun day doing all the things a three-year-old loves to do. : ) Tell your daughter these pictures are fantastic!

LV said...

That is the cutest child ever. If I had a little girl, would want her like bright eyes. However, kinda depressing how fast they grown. Give her a birthday wish for me.

Dewena said...

That's a smile that can lighten the darkest day! Happy Birthday to the little princess. I love her crown, and naturally her dress too!

Wanda said...

Goodness, all she needs is "wings"....what an angel. It reminded me of a old Western movie with Tom Selleck, Quicley Down Under when he looks back and sees her and says.."You sure look purdy in the morning light..... Well she looks purdy, adorable and delicious in the morning sunlight. What a doll.

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Oh Diana, she is one beautiful little girl. She reminds me of you, I think she takes after you. Can't believe that she is 3 years, time fly's.

Have a wonderful evening and Bright Eyes is beautiful.

Hugs,
Mary

Donna said...

Little Miss Bright Eyes is a living doll, Diana! She just gets cuter all the time, and is so expressive! She looks like such a happy little girl. I just love the pics of her. Happy 3rd birthday, sweet girl!!

Rue said...

Awww.... she's such a doll. I remember Annie at that age, wearing tutus. Better than what she wears now! LOL

xo,
rue

Vee said...

As cute as cute can be. A Happy Birthday to her๐ŸŽˆ

A Joyful Cottage said...

Precious, precious, precious. Doesn't she just tug at your heart, Diana? My granddaughter will be 16 in August and seeing your adorable girl takes me back to when Emma was that age and liked the sound her mary janes made on the hardwood floors when she walked, so she would just twirl around tapping. So cute. xo

Jettie said...

Still beautiful even if she is '3'

Debby Ray said...
