Knowing there are a million things I *should* do.
But all I can do is daydream and wonder and wait for you.
We’re about one week out from being able to have a safe birth at home which is very exciting. I can’t believe how close it’s getting!!!! Just a little over a month to go!!!! I’ve been tucked away behind my computer for quite some time trying to get holiday orders filled while I can, so it will probably be quiet over here for a little while longer. But, when I get quiet on the blog, people start sending out search parties so I thought I’d drop a line. ;-) Which reminds me…thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment here. And I love clicking on your blogs, too. I might not always get to comment, but I do love to see what’s going on with you.
Anyway, the above pic is from this past weekend. My mom took my littlest guy for some alone time with Grandma which left us with some alone time with T man. It was one of our first cold mornings and I loved how T wrapped himself in a blanket to sit down for his favorite breakfast of grits (blech). He looked so snuggly and content and totally at home watching the sun come up over breakfast. Seriously, the kid would eat grits every meal of every day if he could.
And I have to say it is AMAZING how different the boys are when they are apart…so sweet and charming and loving. When they’re together, all they do is fight, but when they’ve been separated for a while, they constantly ask for and talk about each other. Go figure.
Oh yeah, I have the FUNNIEST video of the boys learning how to hold their new baby sister. If I can just figure out how to get it uploaded to the net. Oh, man, let me just say, she’s in trouble…
Remember this red-headed angel? Well, she’s 6 months old now and stunning:
I just can’t get over that beautiful skin and those blue eyes with that red hair! Oh, to have such striking features! And mom, I’m pretty certain these are NOT the holiday card pics. I’m saving those for your eyes only. ;-)
Oh, my gosh, they don’t get any cuter than this! My second session with Baby N was this morning:
Today was so easy and fun. I so love my job…I get to play dress up with adorable kiddos all day. And boy, when mom said I wouldn’t recognize her, wow, was she right! This is her almost 4 months ago!
Psssst…just wanted to give you a head’s up about some nifty little Pinkle Toes gift certificates supporting the Jr. League of Austin. Scroll down to the bottom HERE. You can use them next year, but hurry because there aren’t many available. Sweet, huh?
Just wanted to share a few of my favorite page layouts from some coffee table books I’ve designed recently:
If you had a session with me this year, it’s not too late to order your own coffee table book in time for the holidays for yourself or as gifts. Please contact me THIS week for ordering details. (Sigh…if I could, I’d have a library of these books for my own.)
I was going through his gallery tonight and I just couldn’t resist posting a few more. He was so much fun!
I got to do something a little different for me last week: I visited a Parade Home to do detail shots for the talented ladies of Vivid Design Group. It was so neat to tour the home. Each room was different, but everything had such a warm, lived-in feel. I love their use of textures and colors! I tried to do a little re-decorating in my home today with no luck at all. I really admire those who can pull an entire house together!
We took a much anticipated trip to the pumpkin patch the other day. I had alterior motives, of course, but the boys just loved it. I always remember feeling like pumpkin patches were so magical.
Oh yeah, I had to snap a few pics of T in his karate uniform. It’s nice to have him involved in something like this and he really seems to enjoy it!
And a reminder, please don’t forget about the holiday deadlines…ESPECIALLY if you want cards or coffee table books. These can take quite a while for me to design and the books in particular MUST be sent to print by the beginning of November. I’m starting to worry that all the coffee table book orders will come in at the same time and I want to be able to give each one the special attention it deserves. ;-)
I *know* you all remember this couple. Well, Mr. Man made an early arrival and I got to spend some time with him today. Holy moly is he ever cute and I can’t believe we managed this much anticipated bike shot with him.
I think he is the perfect addition to this family and he’s so chill. He fits right in! Great time with you all today! Thank you so much!
