i promise i'm not a horrible mother....

with b i documented everything...first smile, first food, first steps..EVERYTHING!! then mel came along, and i am kind of slacking with her. i think this happens to all moms....you have so many pictures of the first child, then the second one comes along and there aren't as many. i was the third child and, as i look back, there weren't nearly as many photos taken of me as there were my brother and sister. first time moms who frequent my blog probably think i am a horrible mother because they have pictures of all their babies "firsts". well moms, just wait until the second one comes along and you'll see what i am talking about!!:) so, the above photo was taken a couple of days ago. mel is eating rice cereal...not for the first time. we started that about 3 weeks ago. oh well, at least i took this picture!!:) we'll look back at this photo 20 years from now and won't remember weather it was her first or tenth time eating cereal. we will just remember it was her first food!!


i did, however, decide to take some pix of melaney in this adorable outfit. i think she looks cuter than ever in it. my sister gave it to her for Christmas and i like it because it isn't the traditional pink.








first "wink"??????????




miss b. with her toy story family....





b showing mel how to operate one of her toys. mel is starting to crawl and b isn't to sure about it. she liked it a lot better when mel stayed in one spot and didn't mess with her toys. the other day i heard b saying, "she's looking at me!!" mel had mad her way across the living room floor to b's chair and was looking at her and smiling!!!







more pix...

some photos from a recent session. these kids are so adorable and they just welcomed home a new little sister last week. i went to see the new baby for the first time today. mommy and baby are doing great. the baby is so tiny. it's hard to believe that melaney was that size 4 months ago. time flies and it's amazing how much you forget!!




























how sweet is this??....

this picture makes me laugh...this is her personality dead on...


















































































































































home sweet home....


i just had to walk through 10 inches of snow yesterday to take this picture. the neighbors probably thought i was crazy! i don't particularly like snow, but i thought it looked nice on our house.

3 wonderful girls

these are some of the many photos that i took of these 3 beautiful ladies. they are my cousins (3 of the many). the oldest is the fair queen...the middle one, a football manager...the youngest, a cheerleader.





miss b...my little helper!








love this one...we used the back of her enormous dress as the backdrop. the photographer at my wedding did this and i loved the picture.
















and their proud mama...

looking forward to warmer weather...


i took this photo last august and just ran across it on my computer...i am definately looking forward to warmer weather...it is freezing today with a high of only 7!!:( most people had their grocery shopping done before this cold front hit...not me!! the whole family went to kroger last night...the roads were too bad for me to go by myself, and i REALLY needed out of the house. the cashier informed brad and me that it was way too cold for the little kids to be out...i think she should have kept her opinion to herself. we had them bundled from head to toe and they were only in it for about 2 minutes!! i told brad today that i thought about taking the kids to the park since i already lost my mommy of the year award according to the lady at kroger! just kidding!! i can't wait for the warm sunshine and at least 65 degrees, but with the warmer weather comes a lot more work...lawn mowing...gardening..etc. but i love all those things!! Stay warm!!:)
