This week it has been Lily’s birthday and she turned 7. I swear that just overnight she began to look older. This particular picture was taken on Saturday – just before we left to go to the X Factor Live concert. The girls were both so excited and I let them pick exactly what they were to wear, how to have their hair and even a little make up. Though it looks like Lily has blush and even lipgloss on, I assure you that’s all natural beauty. She does have a little pink eyeshadow on but honestly she looked so beautiful and so grown up – I was stunned.
This picture of Megan was taken at the same time as the one I took of Lily – just after getting ready to go out to the X Factor Live concert. This is the darkest I’ve let Megan have her eyeshadow and I was surprised at how much older it made her look. Not the most flattering of poses but I picked this photo because it does show how she’s growing up and it makes for a good record in my 52 Project photos.
