Our place is pretty in the early fall evening, the sun shining golden on her curly flyaway hair.
She looks like she is patiently waiting.
Then Nathan came along and he liked to look out the window too.
At the same time of year, September, and it looks like he's stretching up a bit to view the world. It was a good way to entertain a 10 month old while I was cooking dinner. "Watch for Daddy!"
By the time Lynette came along and I had these cute pictures hanging on my wall of my kids looking out my front door, I HAD to get a photo of her too. But she was so tiny, it was a long time before she was tall enough to peek out the door.
That year, 1995, was a chaotic year. We were in the process of moving Grampa Kleeb to our house, and in November we went there for the final garage sale, and there was Lynette looking out Grampa's door watching what was going on. And it hit me.....
I don't have a "door" picture of Lynette and soon it will be too late. It would have been a good one that day, too. She was in her little white slip I made, looking out a white door.
AND, I DIDN'T HAVE MY CAMERA!!!!
I wanted my camera. I wanted to take a picture of Grampa's turquoise house before the new people painted it. But I couldn't. So that picture had to wait.
I took hers in April, at 16 months of age.
I hadn't thought of my cute little pictures of my kids looking out the door for years, they are just fixtures on the wall of my bedroom. The kind of thing that are always there and I just look over them.
Until, .... along comes Zane.
He LOVES the outside, and when he hears the door open he is right there trying to see if he can sneak out.
