This morning I pulled out the old teaset Meghan and I used to play with. It’s a bit grungier than I remember but after a good soak in the sink it was ready to go. Watching Sarah play with it brought back a rush of memories of playing with my sister. I hope Sarah will know that same joy one day.

It’s weird to see her playing with my old toys. Those are the moments when I look at her and think to myself, “I have a daughter?”. Sometimes it’s just too weird. Where does the time go?

I can’t wait to play tea party with her.

JenniferJanuary 12, 2007 - 2:45 pm

Sounds like someone needs to get busy if Sarah is going to have a little sister to play with!

JodiJanuary 12, 2007 - 3:01 pm

Ahh, I had that same tea set when I was little!

Great pictures! I would love to see them in colour. I also had the same tea set when I was little.

I feel the same when the girls play with things I had when I was little. Sarah will be a great big sister.

You think it is weird for you to see Sarah playing with your toys…try being me and seeing my granddaughter playing with MY children’s toys. I remember buying that teaset…(I mean I remember the Christmas Santa brought it…) Such sweet pics! I love you! Mom

AmyJanuary 12, 2007 - 8:27 pm

Looks like Dolly was enjoying the tea just as much as Sarah 🙂

Hi 🙂

I post a message here, cause I cannot do it everywhere…
I think you have a beautiful little girl, really really cute…
And you have so much talent. The first time I saw your pictures, my first feeling was to stop to take pictures!!! Cause I thought that I’m really NUL, in compare of you!!!
Your blog is really amazing, and thanks, cause I always spend good time…

Hope you understand me 😉

I have a question for my blog, how did you do for convert your picture in little size with the same quality? Cause when I try, mine became badder…

Take care of you and your little princess!

Ah, a tea party…with a dolly…that’s what being a little girl is about! So glad that the tea set is in the family.
Love You all…..

this is so cute! i so wish we had kept some of my favorite toys from childhood…. i wonder what ever happened to all of it?

such wonderful memories you are creating…. all over again!

KristenJanuary 17, 2007 - 2:21 pm

I love your blog and your photography! I am getting the Nikon D80 in a few weeks and so I’ve been loving admiring your photos. Your daughter is lucky to have a mom that is creating such beautiful art, documenting her childhood!

So my question– do you use a filter a lot? Your pics have such great coloring– how do you achieve that?

A.K.January 18, 2007 - 2:03 pm

SamanthaJanuary 19, 2007 - 10:00 am

Hey, Erin – just in case you have had a MILLION hits this week – it’s us. In addition to spending countless hours explaining “you’ll see Sarah Sunday,” we CONSTANTLY have to come look at Sarah on the computer. You should see our monitor – it is COVERED in fingerprints and kiss marks. She is well missed!

Julie C ButlerJanuary 21, 2007 - 7:44 pm

These are gorgeous .. I just love the way you capture her playing – she will be so happy when she is older .. that you captured her in such good photos!!
Take care, Julie
