Cute Little Cowgirl

This little sweetie turns ONE on Friday. Where did this year go? I remember taking her teeny little newborn pics, like, yesterday!

She has grown up so much... running around like a little pro. She thinks she is as big as her cousins! She is seriously one of the happiest little people I've ever met. And cute? That doesn't even begin to describe her! Her mama wanted some "Cowgirl" pics in her teeny Wrangler jeans and boots... and she was so interested in the horse and goats at the barn, that she didn't want much to do with me, but she had fun. Lots and lots of fun! :)

She LOVED the horse. She just kept laying down and giving him "loves." (No worries... dad was REALLY close by, and we did these REALLY fast! He would step out just long enough for me to snap, then he was right back ready to catch her!)

She was so funny leading the horse around. And Mr. Wishbone? Most. Patient. Horse. Ever!! He just followed wherever she went. He did try to eat my camera bag at one point, but I can forgive him that. He's such an awesome horse!

We did a quick little outfit change, but she was pretty much done with me and my big 'ol camera. I still loved how these ones came out, though. She "posed" herself for this first one.

Even when she was tired of me, she was still sweet. She just quietly walked (ran) in the opposite direction :)

Happy Birthday, Baby Girl! I still can NOT believe it's been a year. Time sure flies!

These turned out sooooo stinkin' cute! My kids can hardly wait to have their picture taken with Wishbone. If we could just get feeling better so that I could schedule a time with you.
