Wordless Wednesday — Swinging

Olivia on a Rope Swing

This series of photos from camp led me to question, “Are second-born children braver?” Let me know your thoughts over at my post last week.

Here is a fun thumbnail linky…

But if you prefer the old style, you can use this linky:

12 Marilyn (A Lot of Loves) July 28, 2010 at 12:30 am

My kids LOVE to swing.


13 Mimi July 28, 2010 at 12:33 am

I have 2 older girls and I’d have to say my 2nd one is intentionally braver. Don’t make me explain! LOL

Of my 2 younger boys, I’d have to say the 2nd one is braver. My 1st wants to be braver so he does try. =)

Love the rope swing photo!


14 Kate July 28, 2010 at 12:51 am

Loving the joy on that sweet little face!


15 Simply Cathi July 28, 2010 at 12:52 am

Olivia is so adorable and her smile is infectious.


16 Jennifer July 28, 2010 at 12:58 am

Carefree Fun!


17 Tarasview July 28, 2010 at 1:07 am

You know what? These pictures are even cuter now that I know her in person :)


18 Tabitha Blue / Fresh Mommy July 28, 2010 at 1:12 am

Oh what a great photo!! She is having a great time!


19 Janis July 28, 2010 at 1:21 am

That is a question I will never have the answer to as the mother of an only child…and he is a bit of a scaredy cat. ;)


20 Sarah July 28, 2010 at 1:29 am

Aww kids swinging is the BEST!


21 Jacqueline July 28, 2010 at 1:55 am

Ah! She looks like she’s enjoying one of my favorite pastimes as a child! :)


22 Owen's Mom July 28, 2010 at 1:57 am

Yes! My daughter is braver, but also acts wiser. She doesn’t make the same mistakes her brother did before her. Well, and we are better parents now.


23 melanie July 28, 2010 at 2:05 am

Great pic, as usual! :D


24 kristin July 28, 2010 at 2:17 am

I totally agree, the second is ore brave.

She is beautiful.


25 Deb - Mom of 3 Girls July 28, 2010 at 5:38 am

Aww, looks like she’s having a blast! :)


26 TheAngelForever July 28, 2010 at 7:09 am

What a great photo! I still need to go and reply to your Second Child post. I think in the case of our family it is VERY true. My little guy has no fear and loves to try anything/everything.


27 Sherry July 28, 2010 at 7:14 am

She looks like she is having a ball! :D


28 Susie's Homemade July 28, 2010 at 7:24 am

I think if the kids are close in age, the second one can tend to be braver. If they are farther apart, the younger one can depend a little more on the older ones and then, develope slower.


29 Kim July 28, 2010 at 7:57 am

Great photo. You take great photographs of your daughter. She has a beautiful smile.


30 Melanie July 28, 2010 at 8:00 am

She looks like she is having a great time!


31 Heather July 28, 2010 at 8:00 am

She is a beauty and that looks like a professional shot!


32 Auntie E July 28, 2010 at 8:30 am

As a child Rope swing where the greatest. I will need to find a tree to put one up.


33 Serendipity is Sweet July 28, 2010 at 8:42 am

Beautiful pic! In our case, my second born is not braver. Our first born is a boy…a dare devil whom I caught propping his bike ramp on top of cinderblocks last night in an effort to catch bigger air! My second is a daughter, more of a girly girl. She’s pretty good at holding her own, but definitely more cautious than #1.

Have a great Wed :)


34 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) July 28, 2010 at 8:55 am

That big beautiful grin says it all! :)


35 Mellisa July 28, 2010 at 8:57 am

If you think your 2nd born is braver imagine my 4th – it’s a wonder my heart is still beating after all she has put it through – wonderful shot of your little one – so full of joy!


36 prasti July 28, 2010 at 9:34 am

looks like she is loving it. it makes me want to swing on a rope swing :).

our 2nd child seems more fearless, but i don’t know if it’s because he’s a boy or if it’s because he’s the 2nd child (our 1st is a girl) or if it’s a little bit of both. although, our 1st child seemed fearless when she was younger, but now that she’s a bit older she seems more cautious about certain things.


37 Naomi July 28, 2010 at 9:38 am

Love the unadulterated glee!


38 Our Nifty Notebook July 28, 2010 at 10:23 am

She looks like she’s having a blast!


39 JamericanSpice July 28, 2010 at 10:26 am

She is definitely having fun. Just look at the joy in her eyes! It’s such freedom!



40 Roxanne July 28, 2010 at 10:57 am

Love all the pics, as always! :)


41 Jen E July 28, 2010 at 11:09 am

What a beautiful smile!


42 Natalie July 28, 2010 at 11:09 am

43 Bibi July 28, 2010 at 11:19 am

44 Suzanne (Crunchy green Mom) July 28, 2010 at 11:44 am

45 pamela ponder July 28, 2010 at 11:50 am

46 Cheryl July 28, 2010 at 1:45 pm

Awww, so so sweet :) Thanks for hosting!


47 Stephanie July 28, 2010 at 3:10 pm

All my kids are brave – except the 1st born. He is the biggest chicken EVER. He’s 9 and just barely decided to try and learn how to ride a bike. But he’ll only practice in the grass. lol


48 Lauren July 28, 2010 at 4:08 pm

Well, I was a second-born weenie, so maybe you shouldn’t base your theory on me. ;) What a great smile!


49 Holly at Tropic of Mom July 29, 2010 at 12:33 am

What a big smile! Swings are one of the best forms of therapy, don’t you think? ;)


50 8-Rock July 29, 2010 at 1:38 am

What a wonderful photograph! I love the way a child’s smile can covey such sheer joy.


51 Cashback Shopping Mom August 11, 2010 at 5:46 pm
