Bath Time


Baby sister is in that wonderful stage of babyhood where you want to just squeeze on her and make her giggle all day.  It dawned on me that I’ve never really snapped any bath pics of her so we remedied that situation last week.  And of course you can take a picture of one without the other two jumping in.


Still Life


This week’s assignment was a still life photo.  I brought the eggs, someone else had the flower arrangement and I just snapped a pic.  As you might guess, eggs are more patient than two year olds.

Food Photography


I’m taking the next photography class at TCC and this time it’s all about product, food and still life.  Kind of a fun experiment since my usual subjects are children.  And we get to use studio lights so it feels very professional!  Here is last week’s assignment:

Samuel has had two soccer games so far this season and he’s loving it!  He even got a goal the first game.  This boy loves to run and run and run so this is right up his alley.  So fun to cheer him on every Saturday!




Such a handsome boy!



It was “fweezing” for the fist game (just ask Molly how she felt about it)! And Grandma and I are thankful that Grandpa had pocket full of stocking caps.  All fashion sense gets thrown out the door in 30 mph wind!


Now if the weather will just stay warm we’ll be good!

Spring Break Visitors


Becky, Maria and Karen stopped by for a visit a couple of weeks ago.  We know what it’s like to try to squeeze in all of those stops between naps and feedings so we thank you all for making time for us.  We are still talking about Meeeweeaah around here!


Samuel is quite the baby charmer.  He loves to make them laugh.



I love Avery’s face in this one. 


Two pretty girls.  They’ve both gained some chunk since the last visit!





We tried to late for a shot of the Grammies and grandbabies.  They were done and ready for a nap.  Next time we’ll try it first.

5 Months


Oh boy!  We are entering my very favorite season of babyhood and Avery has not disappointed!  This month we have seen rolling both ways, belly laughs and lots of head strength.





A week or so ago I put her down on her tummy and she rolled right to her back.  We hardly ever do tummy time since she hates it so much so I thought it was a fluke.  So we tried again and she rolled right to her back.  She did it several more times before bedtime.  So like any loving mother, I documented the occasion on Facebook.  And she never did it again.  Then Monday she decided to start rolling from back to tummy every time we put her down on the floor.  But we’re in that lovely stage where they roll one way and then forget they know how to get themselves back to the preferred position.  So she just gets mad and there’s no hope for rolling over.  Next week by this time the big kids better watch out.  She’ll be chasing them all over the house. 

Last week we were visiting with the neighbors and two of the girls got her giggling so hard she couldn’t stop.  It’s the best sound you’ve ever heard.  And so strange because it doesn’t sound like it should be coming from her.  I’ll have to try to get it on video.



Still no teeth but she gnaws on everything and the mega slobbering has begun.  She is loving the toys on her carseat and is so excited that she can sometimes manage to get something in her mouth on her own.

She made her first our of town trip to a wedding in Dallas and was fantastic.  We left the sibling in OK so she got the undivided attention of 7 adults for two days.  She was in heaven!  So good for the little lady who gets put down mid-feeding so Mommy can wipe a bottom or intercept a disaster.  She was up until 11 and took it in stride.  We heard hardly a fuss from her and saw lots of grins and coos.

She has slowed down in the growth department and her stats remain roughly the same as last month. 





And here’s a little taste of what the nice weather is doing to the big brother and big sister.  Hello, Spring!  We’ve missed you!

Wedding Weekend


We headed down to Dallas for my cousin’s wedding over the weekend.  Samuel and Molly stayed with Grandma and Grandpa while Avery tagged along with us.  She won the prize for youngest guest and we could not have asked for a better baby.  She is a trooper and was thrilled to get all of the attention from the big people.


Little party guests enjoying each other.


Taking a quick rest to gear up for the party.
