New Blog!

Not for my photography business this time either! I'm moving everything on the family blog over to wordpress because it's just easier to work with since I post so many images and I can also post my images a lot bigger. So, if you want to keep up with our little fam from now on, you can find us at I would love it if you would update your bookmarks and follow us over! :-)

Some Randoms

A pitiful pair I tell you...

As Ella reads quietly in her bed, Anna-bear quietly sneaks into her dollhouse toys...

She's not old enough for this yet is she? (Love the juxtaposition of the undergarments and blankie ;-))

Keith took the day off a few weeks back and we had a wonderful time at the zoo and the park. Keith took a bunch of images that he may share later, but I snapped a few with the diaper bag camera.

Boy, it's hard to get a good picture of a daddy and his girls with bad lighting and non-cooperation. Oh well!

Anna says Wow that's a big lion!

Valentine's Day

I realized that I never shared our pictures of the girls opening presents on Valentine's Day. So here they are!

At Home

Just a few taken last week...

Fresh Air

After being cooped up in the house for a few days because of chillier temps, we headed outside to the backyard for a little fresh air. Anna got to push around her little red car, Ella took a few runs down the slide, and I took some pictures. Fun for all!

Shrimp Boil

We had a delish shrimp boil with the Johnson's this past weekend - have I ever mentioned on here how thankful we are for such great friends with such great kids that our kids love? Anyway, we had a fantastic time as always and we brought our ride-on toys with us, so the kids had a blast too.

Have to give Keith credit for these next two...

Anna is 9 Months!

So Anna turned 9 months a few days ago. I'm taking her monthly picture later and later these days because I get so frustrated trying to get a shot of her. Now that's she crawling she has no interest in sitting still for a picture. Anyways, the past month has been huge for her. She started crawling well, pulling up, and cruising all within days of each other. And, drum roll please, she has finally gotten a tooth! One on the bottom is just starting to poke it's way through.

A few fun facts:
- Getting much more picky about solid foods - prefers to self-feed and is eating all types of table food now
- Bananas are still a favorite
- Takes a 1.5 hour morning nap and 2-3 hour afternoon nap
- Sleeps 12 hours at night
- Babbles constanting
- Wears size 3 diapers
- Wears size 6 month and some 9 month clothes

We had her 9 month check-up today and her stats were 16lbs. 12oz. and 27.5 inches. So she's 10th-20th percentile on weight and 50th for height. Since she's leveled off now on her weight, there's no more concern about her being little. She's just going to be a petite little girl. And really, at this age, Ella wasn't that different - she was 17lbs. in weight. Now height is a different story; Ella was 28.75in at 9 months. She's our tall girl. :-) Here's a quick snap from the doctor's office today - again, impossible to get her to sit still!

Headed to the Dr.

Thankfully for a 9 month checkup this time and not a sick visit! I'll be back later with Anna's stats and a picture. But, for now, here are a couple of pictures of sweet Anna that I've taken recently. I've also taken her 9 month picture...maybe I'll get around to editing and posting it by the time she's 10 months. ;-)

She looks so little in her crib now that it's lowered down.

And one of the dogs for good measure. :-)

Happy Tuesday!

Ahhh, once again I've let the blog go for almost a week. It's just so hard to keep up! :-) We had a gorgeous day in Montgomery yesterday and I tried to make the most of it by keeping the girls outside as much as possible. Didn't take too many pictures, but I have a couple to post a little later. For now, here's some that I took of the girls a while back. They like to play in Anna's room a lot.

Pucker up Baby!!

Afternoon Light

I didn't think it was possible to love my husband any more than I already do, but he proved me wrong on Sunday. He's developed an interest in photography and wants me to teach him about the camera. Be still my heart!! :-) So, after a quick lesson, we went out Sunday evening to practice. The girls were uncooperative to say the least, but I had so much fun seeing Keith with a camera in his hand and using it. :-) I took all the pictures in this post, but maybe I can convince Keith to share one or two of his soon. He really has an eye for it!

There's something about this one I love...not exactly sure what.

And we're done!
