M | 2-Weeks Old

May 31, 2018 | For being so young, I’m constantly amazed at not only the expressions on this girl, but the intensity with which she stares at me. It’s like she is a grown-kid inside that tiny baby! Also the eyebrows…they constantly make me laugh because she’s looking at me with skepticism well beyond her two weeks.

the Messy Box!

May 30, 2018 | When a friend is starting a new business, targeted at “kids having fun!” of course you want to help them succeed!  So I had her deliver one of the new products — the Messy Box — and I snapped around 1,000 photos of these cousins in the backyard going crazy.  It was seriously a blast, and so creative with all of the options!  But I’m going to agree with her statement that it’s for ONCE A YEAR…


May 25, 2018 | I take WAY too many photos. M is already realizing it, because she fought me HARD on this one, even though it was only 10-minutes! I was determined to get her to sleep, and tried ALL of my tricks…stubborn little girl. 🙂

Marlo | Newborn Photos

May 23, 2018 | I asked Deanna to come over and capture our family for the first time with M, and it was such a relaxed session I couldn’t have been happier! It was a bit more nutty trying to get three girls photo-ready, but once Deanna arrived I didn’t mind anything that was happening.  M did so great, and was asleep for MOST of it…and for awhile afterwards.  Which means I took the opportunity to snag a few more photos of her myself (since I asked Deanna to focus on the family)!

And then a few of my snaps… 🙂

Dirt Bike Track

May 5, 2018 | Hobbling around towards the end of this pregnancy means we are limited a bit on the weekend activities…which is fine, and D has been just INCREDIBLE taking over a lot of the things that E needs.  One of the things I really wanted to take her to do was a ride on this pump-track at a local park.  I’ve seen kids on it, and while there may be some steep hills I had a feeling she would just love it.  WOW did she ever!  There were some spills, but not once did it stop her/cause tears…she wanted to keep going, and managed to get faster with each lap.  That sweaty-face took a quick snack break, and then she was back at it!  It was the longest I’ve seen her “balance” (in the gaps between hills) and she was really sad to leave.  But I know we will go back this Summer sometime!
