Baby "E"

This little one has the sweetest smile. He was very cooperative with me and we managed to get some really nice shots. We even managed to get a family picture.

Baby "L"

This weekend I was able to capture a few pictures of this sweet little boy who just celebrated his 1st birthday. He was more interested in practicing his new walking skill, but I managed to get a few good ones.

Yesterday I got a phone call that every parent child was hurt while spending the night at a friends house. I rush to pick him up and notice right away that something was definitely wrong with his wrist. I got him home and gave him 2 extra strength tylenol and placed an icebag on his swollen wrist. I located the phone book and called his doctor, who told us to come right in. When all was said and done we spent a total of 5 hours in TWO separate offices and what we learned was that he had a fracture of the distal radius. He is in a cast for 6wks. We made it 13 years without any broken bones and I pray that after this we make it even further.

A few of my favorite things...

Lately I have found myself more eager to learn all I can about my camera and start taking my interest in photography more serious. I set out on a mission over the last couple of days to explore many places and find beauty in things that many people would walk right past without a second thought. Here are a few of my favorite shots.

I have many more, but I will spare you from having to look at them all :)

Picture Day...

So, today was picture day for 2 of my boys. The memo that was sent home asked that you dress your child in vibrant or pastel colors and that you have no designs on the shirts. Sounds simple enough, right?...WRONG. My boys don't have any solid color shirts without graphics on them so off to the store I went. I also managed to give them both haircuts as well. I think they looked handsome this morning...what do you think?

I think i'm in trouble...

My son just turned 13 in December and has his 1st real girlfriend. I thought it was cute at first, now I am not so sure. They talk on the phone or text eachother every single day, multiple times, so much so that I have put a limit on his texts per day. He says things like "hey baby" to her when they talk or text and just told me the other day that they have thought alot about sharing their 1st kiss and they both believe they are ready??? HUH?, WHAT? I realize that he is growing up and that he is going to experience certain things but I am just not ready to let go, not yet. I had my 1st kiss at 12yrs old and I can remember it to this is something special that will stay with him for the rest of his life, are we really ready for this?

As I sit here on the eve of another birthday I am once again reminded that I am not getting any younger, in fact I am getting older...much older. I am blessed that god has allowed me another year on this earth to spend with my friends and family. I find myself wanting to do something "wild" & "reckless" this year, as if that will bring back my My boys have been great, they made me a cake and have just made me feel special all day, according to them this whole weekend is going to be my birthday celebration, that is fine by me ;). Thank you god for my wonderful children, family, & friends. I am one blessed 30 something year old.
