Thanksgiving in Chester.
Bath time. His favorite time!
He’s starting to grab his feet. 4 months is the best!
I didn’t take many pictures for July. My fat belly was in the way. It feels SO good to be un-pregnant again! You don’t realize how many times you need to squat or lay on the ground for a good shot.
2am feedings + bilirubin light.
Daddy’s 4th of July triathlon & the girls’ popsicle race. Mia came in 3rd place out of about 20 kids. She beat quite a few 5-7 year old boys! This girl is going to be an athlete! (I’m thinking Ausha might be my little artist.)
Catching up a little while I’m caught up a little. Here are some bits and pieces of our June and one shot from July. Since Ausha’s daily project ended last month I haven’t taken many pictures of the girls with my big camera. I’m taking a break for July because when baby H gets here, I probably won’t put my big camera down. I turn 37 weeks next Monday, so the anxious wait will begin. I started maternity leave today! Woohoo. I’m hoping to get some odds and ends done around the house now while I have time. The nursery is 99% done. I’ll be posting some shots of it here soon.
We bought this tub for our Bamboo but before we planted them the girls took advantage of it.
They helped put together brother’s new dresser.
Art by Mia.
They ran their first race and loved it so much they requested another one for this Saturday.
Daddy was proud/
Bamboo planted & cousin Vada enjoying her breakfast.
Caught stealing cookies from the cookie jar.
In Port O’Connor.
I know I know. I suck at blogging. The last few months have been crazy. But now we are all moved in the new house, I’m done unpacking & I’m all caught up on work so I can get back to blogging personal pics again.
Here is October…..A little German girl & a kitty. (costumes tossed together last minute).
and a sock tail 😉 lol.
I love this shot I snuck throught the door of my dad and hubby snuggling on baby V.
Cookin’ up some breakfast @ my parents’ lake house.
Turns out Mia LOVES to fish. She casted and reeled for about 1 hour straight. That is a long time for that toddler to do anything!
A little location scouting with Mommy. A got a little dirty 🙂
Cousin Vada turned 1.
We lucked out and moved in next to older people who never come out of their homes, which means we get the whole entire cul-de-sac to ourselves!
A post slap in the face. Sisters!
A has such a sassy little walk. Always swaying those arms.
A glimpse of the kitchen. I’m so happy with how it turned out. I really love the lime green pantry and screen door. It adds just the right amount of color. As soon as my house gets clean and a little more decorated I’ll do a blog post of house pictures.
The next set is from our time in Chester for Thanksgiving.
Matt saying, “Only one piece of Halloween candy Mia!”
And September….. These are taken when we were still living @ Landmark Lofts.
Mia practicing her photography skills. “Ok baby, I gonna take your pic. Say cheeeeese!”
Location scouting with Mia in downtown New Braunfels. Isn’t that cutest dress from Mason & the Tambourine?
Pictures from Kaida & Hailey’s birthday party.
I drew up that cardboard thingy for Kelley. Turned out cute!
Left alone with markers and some futon surfing.
Post princess party.
Life with 2 toddlers while building a house, working from home & starting a new business has proven to be more than I can handle. Who in their right mind does all of that at the same time? I must be crazy. Instead of trying to keep up with it all, I’ve decided to give in. Some things are hold until the Fall. Obviously one of those things is organizing, editing and posting all my personal photos on time. June & July were SO much fun. The highlights were definitely 4th of July and Vegas. We were Vegas Virgins and weren’t sure we were going to like it, (we’re slow paced kinda folks) but we did. We had a little too much fun. The fact that I walked out of a tattoo parlor with a Mike Tyson temp tat on my face might give you an idea of how much fun we had. 😉 For the 4th of July we also celebrated my nephew Hank’s 3rd birthday. I love going to my parents beach house. It’s so relaxing there. Sorry for all the naked kiddo shots, but all of them refuse to wear clothes at “the pineapple house”. Grab and drink and get comfy. There are a ton of pictures. And as usual, they are mainly of the kids. I keep telling myself to take more shots of the adults in my life but these kids are so damn cute they steal the show.
Here is June.
And here is July.
