Good news!

On the business end of things, I have good news! I am now accepting plastic (yes, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover) when you place an order and for booking sessions! Welcome to the 2000's, Taylor Made!! And I must say it's nice to have finally arrived!

And if you're wondering why all the peppiness at such a late hour, it's because of too much caffeine today. An impromptu play date got me going early stuffing things in the nearest possible nook and cranny and sweeping up dust bunnies straightening up the house and getting ready for the day (if you call my frumpy clothes "getting ready for the day"). And before I knew it I was jabbering my way through lunch with all the kids and my girlfriend. After everyone left and I got the girls down for their nap, I started to feel a slight tinge of a caffeine headache setting in and realized I had not enjoyed my strong cups of Joe. With haste, I quickly warmed up the 6 cup pot I had made when I first woke up, threw in some french vanilla, and pretty much chased it with a "spot of tea".

Oh and if that didn't show enough of my lack of restraint today, my sweet tooth was whispering sweet nothings in my ear about the bag of Reece's pieces peanut butter cups stowed away in the candy bowl above the hutch. ...half a bag of chocolate might have contributed additional caffeine in which I did not account when I was throwing 'em back earlier in the day.... so maybe that's it!!

Baby M again!!

Little Baby M is now three months old and really turned up the cute-o-meter on this one!! Then, as if he wasn't already being a perfect little model baby to start, towards the end of the session, he went to sleep and let us take some of him sleeping (which by the way, is a photographer's dream)!! Mom brought some good hats to this session, which always makes for great photos (for anyone who's looking for any ideas)! Looking forward to his 6 months pictures, and mom promised that her and dad would jump in the pictures too! Thanks, Bethany for letting me share your precious baby with all my peeps!

Big Girl Carseat

We are only a few months behind, but I'm blaming it on her being so little, and I'm not quite sure she was 20 lbs on her birthday. But now she is and ready for a big girl carseat! We finally got her one and had our first outing in it yesterday. She looked pleased, but there were no fireworks like I thought there might be...

We went to Northpark and met Mimi and my sister and her twins. Presley told me many times that she didn't want to sit with Santa again. (We went to Willowbend and both were screaming on his lap.) I tried to assure her that she didn't have to. I never even told her we were, I think she thought that because she was getting all dolled up, she was getting a picture made...a train of thought, again, I'm liking!! Little did she know, mama's just behind on laundry!!

So it wasn't until we pulled back up the house with both girls asleep that I missed her baby carrier. Therefore both girls only napped on the car ride home! Teagan is such a light sleeper! I can transfer Presley, but Teagan I probably won't be able to.

Here's Teagan in her new carseat (minus the fireworks, but still happy)!

Here' s Presley and Mimi in the train exhibit. We've never done that before, I always thought it was a train you ride. It was neat and the girls enjoyed it!
Teagan saying hi to a train maybe??

The girls looking at a fairy boat under the bridge, it was just on their level to get a good look.

We need to have more outings like that! We all enjoyed getting out of the house, cold weather and all!

Miss Sassy Pants

Presley, is her name! She is becoming quite the little ball of sass. And I have the pictures to prove it! I must admit, I'm enjoying the hamming for the camera, a willingness I hope sticks around a while!

Teagan's first...

Baby Sleep Over!

Last weekend we did a back to back movie switch with my sister, Alison and Jay. We went to the movie while they watched the girls and then we watched their girls while they went. Four Christmas's, it was pretty funny. Anyway, it was a dramatic first couple of minutes because Price had to go let my other sister's dog out while I watched all four of them! No easy task! Then, Dovie spit up on Price, then pooped out of her diaper, all at the same time as all three of the little babies were needing a nap. After trying to lay the twins in the bed, which didn't work (I think it's something about this house...), I piled them all on the big bed and before too long, they were all fast asleep! It was sweet!!!
