It shows in your wonderful pictures! I don't know if I have a favorite age - they all have their great points!

I'm just the MOM said...

Mine would have to be 4...they are so loving and independent :)

Makes me wish you were a teacher! It's so obvious.

I have a special place in my heart for second graders, since I taught them for some 12 years or more. It's the year their teeth fall out and their whole face changes and they go from little kid to big kid with the empowerment of becoming a reader and writer. That said, as a mom, every age is (amazingly!) my new favorite age. PRAYING I'll still be saying that a few years from now!

Kimmy said...

I'm not sure which year is my favorite. I just enjoy every minute with my baby girl. I guess I would have to say the moments I don't like are the tantrums. Besides that, I'm loving every moment!!!!

Kindergarten!!!!!
Oh and newborn babies because they sleep so much so you can cuddle them and kiss them and they won't be bothered or cry for their momma! hehehe

It's such a hard question to answer. There is something special about each age. I love them when their first born because they are so helpless, and so delicious to look at and cradle. Right now I'm loving my son's age of three. He is able to communicate and he's almost potty trained (still workin' on that one). I also love my daughter's age of seven (almost 8). She is on the edge of being a tween, but still adores being with her mommy and daddy. I'm not sure how I'm going to like the teenage years. ;-)

Hugs,
Grace

Me too! I love them all. I think I'm really enjoying the age we're at right now...6 is fun! :)

Farmgirl Paints said...

my 10 year old is pretty awesome right now. she still hugs me and wants to be with me and she's innocent and sweet. i want to keep her in this bubble forever!

Diana...aka...MeMe said...

I love kids too... my favorite would have to be 4 year olds. They are right at the brink of being innocent ~ before they know too much!!

Just Bits and Pieces said...

Gorgeous shots! I'm finding that I like a little bit about each age, and a dislike a little bit......I want to hold onto the things I like and keep them that age, but at the same time have them grow out of the stuff I dislike....boy, if I could figure that out!

What cute kiddos! Right now I am partial to the baby age since my nephew is 5 weeks old, but I am becoming a teacher and love teaching the 1st and 2nd graders!

What beautiful shots! For the most part I enjoy every age and stage but of course some more than others. :) I tend to like the stages when they like to cuddle and think us parents are pretty awsesome. XX

Mental P Mama said...

All ages;) Squeeee!

Mighty M said...

Every year seems to be my favorite!!! :)

Brian Miller said...

i like em all...but i really want to tickle those piggies...

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

Oh how precious! Beautiful photos. And those toes... too cute! :)

Freckles & Dimples Photography said...

i looooove those baby toes!! i think each age has such aspects of it, except for potty training a stubborn 3 year old...

Formerly known as Frau said...

All ages have their fun....even the sassy teenager!

Angela said...

I love your photos! Always! Not sure what age I like?? I always thought I didnt like 8 year old boys but I will have one on Friday when Oliver turns 8!! So I guess I have to change my mind about that!

Skeller said...

and I think they love you back!

oh, and my favorite age is ... not 14. :-}

Ami said...

I have loved my own children at every age and stage. I've wished so many times to keep them 'exactly the way they are RIGHT NOW.'

Of course they change right in front of me.

Other people's kids?

I like to look at babies.
I love hanging out with the elementary school age set.

I get paid to play.

ModernMom said...

How beautiful!! I don't think I can pick a fave age...My girls are 11 and 9 and give me new favorite moments every day:)
Thanks for sharing...

Wanda said...

Three - I just love 3!!!!Well - 4 is pretty cool too.

You get the most amazing shots. You must have that camera on your hip 24/7.
=)

M said...

5! Kindergarten...the best age to teach...the best age to hold and snuggle? 4 months :)

Great pics as usual!

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

I love just watching kids grow, especially the innocent ones that believe in the tooth fairy, santa and making a wish on a star. Your pictures show your love for children.

Kate said...

I found you from Almost Famous. I love your site. I’m going to poke around a little bit, but don’t worry I’ll put everything back where I found it!!

Sarah Halstead said...

How cute! Love them all.

Sonya said...

Beautiful kids..espicall that lastone : ) I love every age I guess..I noticed each one has something special about it..although right now Im having a hard time figuring out what is special about 12 year olds..mine is super moody..lol

Marilyn said...

My favorite age---whatever age my sugarplums are at the time--those are my fav. ages. Your pictures of kids a wonderful. They do show how much you love kids of all ages.

Buckeroomama said...

Why am I so not surprised to read this post? :)

I think I love the 2's and 3's --they say and do the funniest things without even meaning to! I just love that. =)

Abraham Lincoln said...

All ages I think. Thanks for the visit.

Dina @ 4 Lettre Words said...

I really LOVE Luke's age now...almost 3. He's learned so much, and now everything is fun for him. Plus, he still really needs Mom. :)

likeschocolate said...

I love 6m to a year. 3 year olds and 5 year olds. Merry Christmas!

brainella said...

Dominic is five right now and is so much fun -- then again, I think watching the growth and learning process at any age is beautiful. :)

urban muser said...

that's some seriously cute stuff!

Caseybumpinalong said...

Love every one of these pics! You capture the magic of children so well. I love watching the new stuff that comes with each age, but around 1-3 years is a particular favorite because every little thing is so fascinating to them at that age - like they discover magic in each minute.

Nurse Nancy said...

I think every age is my favorite age....but I loved the hugs during toddler years. I still get them but not as often and they are much briefer now.

Busy Bee Suz said...

So, you collect children???
Great photos...they are all lovely!

Jabacue said...

Terrific shots Becky! My favourite age has got to be 5-6 years old. They are usually so wide-eyed and wanting to learn about EVERYTHING!!! I love it.

Maddy said...

I love the kiddies too! Actually, every age has its charms!! It's nice when they are small and cuddly, but when they start talking and walking and saying the darnest things, well that's pretty awesome too!

StarTraci said...

My favorite age changes with my kiddos. I always think that they are the "best" age but then they grow older and I think that is the "best' age. Of course, since there are two of them, I guess that means that O have two favorite ages. Currently, they are three and seven.

omgyummy said...

Saying hi from SITS! Favorite age? In retrospect - the innocence of the early years. I love a lot of things about my kids being teenagers but I didn't realize how much I should have been enjoying the bliss of adoring, napping children when that's what they were :-)

Kat Sloma said...

My favorite age is whatever age my son is - 9.5 right now!

Natalie said...

First and second photo are sooo great! I love the edit used in the first and the crispness and lighting in the second!

And oh my goshness! Its so hard to pick favorite ages. I only have one son who just turned two so I can't say I've experienced them all but I have a 7 year old sister...

Newborns are nice because they eat sleep and well..you know :) but when they start crawling/walking/talking it's also fun to see them learn! I love all ages I guess!

Unknown Mami said...

Really? You like kids? I had no idea.

Shannon said...

I'm a 4th grade teacher, so I'm partial to 9 and 10 year olds.

Cortnie said...

I'd have to say my favorite age is 2...well, at least with my children anyway. I know they say "terrible twos" but so far mine have been angels at 2. They are the most animated and silly and still discovering new things and words, but they don't have an attitude yet.

TechnoBabe said...

My favorite age was always whatever age my kids were at the time. Now my favorite age is the age of each grandchild. Ha.

Sabrina said...

Adorable. I'm kind of loving my kids' ages right now. Even though they both are kind of talking back at 3 and 7, they are also so witty and funny. And the 3 yr old is still small enough to want to cuddle with me on these freezing mornings. ;) LOVE that.

septembermom said...

Life with children is wonderful!

GabbyRM said...

They are so cute! I don't know what my favorite age is... yet.

Mom to 9 Blessings! said...

Love this post! I don't think I have a favorite age anymore - our children range from 3-16 and I love them all. Toddlers are a bit harder at different points and so are teen girls. But all in all they are great no matter what!

in His amazing grace,
