******Don't forget to enter the HATTIE ROSE bib giveaway. Only a couple of days left. If you linked back to the post for the second entry, make sure you leave a second comment.*******

Today I am thankful for sunny, blue skies with big, white fluffy clouds. It was a gorgeous day here today. It got to about 70 degrees and the sky was just beautiful all day. The picture of Annie is from our balcony. I could not resist having Justin hold her up so that I could get a picture of her in the sky. It just felt good to be outside today. Makes me happy!

Annie had a really great therapy session today. She worked really hard and was such a trooper. And we had a great day of eating. Since she was sick, we have really not made much progress with eating lately. She still would chew on certain foods, but as far as eating from a spoon, she was having none of it. So I backed off until she was feeling better and she did great today! It is so nice to have a good day with eating. She seems to prefer me holding her versus sitting in the high chair. The chair seems to make her anxious, so maybe we will just avoid it for now.

We had a really low key day. I ran a few errands while the girls (and Justin) napped. Other than that, we have just played around the house. I have a busy day tomorrow. I need to get a lot done. The girls and I are headed to the Texas hill country for a few days. If you didn't read last year at this time, HERE and HERE are what you do in Fredericksburg. I CANNOT wait to be there. I am doing some mini-sessions for a few families, so it is actually a work/fun trip! Yeah. I hope the weather cooperates. It is questionable at the moment.

That is it for tonight. I have a lot to do and I seem to just keep putting it off.

Justin commented that she looks superimposed in these images, but I swear, she isn't. I agree though, it does look that way.

This makes me smile. A really big smile.

Lucy's hair is really light in the sun. It is not actually black.

My little lady. Spitting off the balcony. Sigh.

Loved the pic of Annie and the sky - that was a great idea! I am the one who started following your blog because of the great photos. I am now learning all about my D200and use the 50mm/1.8D lens. I loved your photos even before you got the new camera so I am wondering what lens you used most often with your D200. Great photos then and great photos now must just mean you are a great photographer! Thanks!
