Lana was born on a Thursday and I think this was the first picture taken of the two of us together, about a week later.
This is still one of my favorites. Lana's a month old and this is the exact day I went from simply "loving her" to being totally and completely "in love" with her.
Kisses are just something we do. We started early and the tradition has continued in earnest.
Lana's first Easter. Yes, I was mean and made her wear an uncomfortable headband.
Our first trip to my Grandpa's Cabin. Lana was such a trooper even though she got sick and had to be rushed to the clinic for treatment.
And what child doesn't like to be surrounded by a giant blue monster? Lana's grimacing because the sun is right in her eyes, not because she's afraid of Sully.
Lana is also my biggest cheerleader. She made this colorful sign to cheer for me at the Palouse River Duathlon last year. She truly believes I'm fast and I win every race I run.
This was taken last summer at the Northwest Washington Fair. Lana loved riding that carousel and we could have gone around and around for days.
