{10 Months!}

My goodness, time has surely flown these last few months! I cannot believe there are only 9 weeks left until you are 1!

You have become quite the picky eater (I have no idea where you get it from either...wink, wink!) You love to fill your tummy with pears, sweet potatoes and peaches (on a good day), I cant say I blame you because I love pears too!
You've also sprouted 6 little teeth...they are so cute and I love it when you do you cheesy grin because I can see them all! (4 on top, 2 on bottom)

I am planning on taking you to the Doctor this week so we can see what that chubby little bum of yours weighs!

You love looking at faces and its hilarious to watch your face light up as you see another baby. I will even show you pictures out of a magazine and you instantly become full of excitment! Definatley a happy little girl!

You are now wearing 12 months+ I had a feeling you'd be a little bigger than average (like your brother was) so when I was shopping last summer I bought mostly 12-18 month clothing and it looks as if that size will be perfect!

We're not quite walking yet but we are mastering the art of pulling ourselves up on anything and will stand be herself for a little bit too!...I know your anxious to keep up with your big brother so I have a feeling that you will be walking pretty soon.

You sleep wonderfully and can't thank you enough for doing will you send the memo on to your brother?
I usually put you down around 8-8:30pm and you'll sleep soundy until around 9-9:30am...unfortunatley for me, your older brother has a natural alarm clock that wakes every morning between 6:30 and 7am. Ugh! Its taken some getting used to, thats for sure!

I am having a blast planning your 1st birthday party! ...I can admit that I may be going a little overboard and I bet my friends are tired of hearing me talk about it, but I love anything and everything crafty and it's a blank canvas as to what I can do!
Fun times ahead!

Save the date...July 25th! Invites will be sent out soon! If I dont have your address send it to me because I dont want to forget anyone!

I've saved the best for last...

Happy 10 Month Birthday, Sweetie!

{Mothers Day}

This past Mothers Day, our church held a massive child dedication :) we had both been wanting to do it for awhile so what better day than Mothers Day right? We joined quite a few families on stage which was great because in the last 3 years there has been quite the baby boom at church. It was a special day, not only because it was Mothers Day, but also because Stevens parents came in from out of town and stayed with us. They joined us, along with my parents at church and it was awesome to have both sets of Grandparents there to celebrate! After church, we all went to my mom and dads house and my mom made an amazing lunch for all of us! We had a great time together and while the kids enjoyed playing in my parents back yard, I enjoyed taking some pictures :)

{Take me out to the ballgame!}

On Thursday, my friend Carrie gave Steven and I a pair of tickets to the Mariners game! We were thrilled and so excited to get our hands on some garlic fries :) ...the baseball part was fun too! We walked all around Safeco and played tourist. We've both been to quite a few games, but we've never really gotten the chance to explore Safeco Field. It was awesome to watch the pitchers warming up in the bullpen! Steven even tried his hand and threw a few balls. It was a perfect night for a ballgame! It would have been even better if we would have won but it's ok, there are still plenty more games to be played!

{The Zoo!}

Last week, I had the pleasure of meeting up my friend Kameron and her adorable son, Blake at Owens beach in Tacoma. We are both trying to further our photography "skills" and we thought the beach would be a great place to start! From there, we took the kids to the zoo and got our chance to photograph some animals. We all had a blast and couldnt have asked for more perfect weather!
Here are a few pictures of our day...

Working on a website...

I apologize for the millions of pictures lately! I must admit, I have a new obsession :) I am working on a site just for photos so if you'll just bear with me for a few more days, Im about to post a couple pictures I took yesterday while at a playdate with my good friend Carly at Bradley Lake. She has a 2.5 year old son and an almost 11 month old daughter both of whom, are well loved by my kids so it makes for a very fun afternoon together!

PS..I am always looking for expecting mamas and squishy little newborns to practice on! Check out
Stacys blog to see the 9 day old beauty we got to work with last night...also be sure to check out the contest shes sponsoring!

{Boys will be boys!}

{Shoot Camp}

This last weekend I had the pleasure of attending "Shoot Camp" given by the awesome Stacy Jacobsen! I was supposed to go awhile back but instead, got sick and was unable to make it. I was thrilled to be able to participate this time and I learned so much! In fact, I may just be assisting her in a wedding on Saturday! Yipee!! Here are a few pictures of "camp" and a couple I took of the kiddos yesterday for Mothers Day...
