New Lens!!!

YEAH! I got my new camera lens yesterday. I was super bummed when I didn't feel well today, but I still managed to snap a few photos of Matt Man.

Play Time!!!

And, alas I am still trying to get good shots of my little 'energizer bunny.' I can only freeze his movement at high shutter speed, which isn't producing the contrast or the color that I am looking for. But, this is still a cute shot!

Hello Angel

Another goal of mine this year, learn to make a mean cupcake. And, not just fancy dancy decorating either...I mean a truly good, melt in your mouth cupcake. This project might be saved for the holidays.

This photo was taken right after a nap. Matthew was running around being his usual self, when for a brief moment he stopped, looked up at me, and held this angelic pose for...a millisecond!

Jeff loves this picture and I can see why. Matthew looks just like Jeff in this photograph. From his hair, right down to his chin...spitting image of his daddy. I wish with my whole heart that this photo quality had turned out better. I ordered a new lens that will hopefully allow me to capture my busy boy in his element and still produce a nice, sharp image.

Even more cuteness

More Three Months

Jeffrey has started to blow bubbles and can hold his head upright for long periods of time. And...he is started to inch himself forward. I have a feeling he will be crawling before long. He is such a sweet baby. I can't wait to take more pictures of my little munchkin.

3 Months

This is my first attempt at taking/editing photos of Jeffrey. Instead of hiring a photographer to take 3 month shots, I thought I would try my hand at it. I am pleased with the 'baby part' photos, but think I need a new lens in order to freeze movement and obtain 'tack sharp' photos. Let me know what you think!

Uh Oh

My baby is on the move! Jeffrey is rolling over at 3 months old. Please God, don't let him be an early walker...

My little munchkin loves to smile and talk

Almost 21 Months and 3 Months

Here are my two handsome boys! As you can tell from this picture, they truly are best friends.

Matthew is almost 21 months old.

He is very active. He loves to read, swim, build with Legos, and JUMP! He runs, jumps, climbs, and bounces around with ease. Matt also can pick out most animals, colors, shapes, some numbers, letters, and objects when asked. His memory is amazing.

Jeffrey is 3 months old.

He smiles easily and babbles all day long. One thing Matthew and Jeffrey have in common is they both wake up talking. It is so cute to sit back and listen in the morning.

Jeffrey can roll from his tummy to his back, sit in the Bumbo chair, and has quite the grip! He is very strong. I can't wait for his first all out belly laugh. He giggles from time to time, but I am waiting for a TRUE laugh :)

Kitchen Remodel

Well, ladies and gentleman, he has done it again...Jeff has transformed an outdated space into something truly beautiful.

As you can see from the before picture...our kitchen needed a makeover. We spent many months doing dishes by hand in a tiny sink and cramming all of our kitchen wares into shallow cupboards.

After a lot of hard work, weeks of doing dishes in the bathtub, and a stint of living with our appliances in the living is almost complete! We just have to paint, install the new light fixture, and finish the pantry.

THANK GOD! I cannot wait to have a dishwasher, space to store things, and a refrigerator that fits a 12 pack of beer AND food!
