Professional Pictures

Ok, I know some of youreading this have used te professional portrait studios way more than I have. Emily's birthday is coming up so want to take her to get her picture made, but am not sure where I want togo. I loved her newborn pictures at Olan Mills and I have their card toget seets for $4.99 each. But everywhere runs specials. Places I'm considering...Sears, Olan Mills, JCpenney, walmart, portrait innovations...thats all i've thought of so far, so who do you like?

For some reason she chose to play underneath the slide for a long time yesterday.

There are holes you can crawl through (if you are 11 months old anyway)

Check out thhat grin!

Daddy just asked me what I was doing.

Silly girl.

Yes, most of that is mud on her face!

I bought her this adorable hat. She looked at me and grinned (I didnt have the camera) and then took it off and held it in the air.

Playing ball

Look she actually has shoes on. Not long though, she took them off once she got on top of the picnic table.

Mommy just picked up all the toys so I'm getting them out again:)

When I started this blog, it seemed as though life was busy. I had just found out I was pregnant and I was working 40 hours a week. I had time to post almost daily. Lately we are lucky if there is a post more than once a week. Let me explain best friend is pregnant and her shower was last weekend. I have a 10 month old and therefore not a lot of extra money but I still wanted to get her something nice and give her a nice shower so that has kept me did I mention the 10 month old?

Happy Birthday Pappy!

Emily wanted to wish Pappy a Happy Birthday today!

If days were 36 hours long, and we still only needed 8 hours of sleep in that time, I could get a lot more accomplished. I could spend more time playing with my little girl. She is in to everything these days, is getting big, and her hair is curling a little more every day! (especially if it is humid!) We are enjoying parenthood and all that comes with it, although those days when teeth are coming in are a little trying sometimes:) Emily has 5 teeth now

which she doesnt use to bite with unless you stick your finger in her mouth to try to see if there are 6 teeth...or what she has currently stuck in her mouth that doesnt belong there. I fyou look closely in these pictures though, you might be able to see how many teeth one of her friends has...for some reason this week he started biting and unfortunately Emily was the recipient a few times.

I've been busy getting stuff ready for big E's baby shower next weekend. Of course, I've also had to spend time outside swinging and exploring, giving Kendall a haircut (I think she can see now!) But i thought i'd take a break and make a quick post. enjoy your labor day weekend.
