124/365












Today I have two thanks. First, I am thankful that about three minutes ago Lucy was laying by me in the bed and she grabbed my cheeks with both of her little hands and said, "Momma, I love you soooooooooooo much." And she followed it up with a kiss. Heavenly. Also, this is so cute, she is reading "Are You My Mother" to herself right now and she knows almost every word. Cuteness.

Today I am also thankful for my girls really, really cooperating with me so that I could get two sessions done today while the weather was cooperating before we leave for Fayetteville for a few days. And when I say they cooperated, I mean I had no childcare and still got the two sessions done. The first was for Parker - the newborn session. They actually came to our house and we got the pictures done while both of my girls napped. It is a miracle that worked out and Annie woke up just as we were finishing up. It was so much fun! Then, I actually took both girls with me to my next session. Crazy - yes, but also necessary if we were going to accomplish getting a picture ready for graduation invitations. Mandy normally helps me with the girls, but she couldn't today, so I said if we were going to get the pics done before I left the girls would have to come along. Annie stayed in the Ergo on my back and Lucy either watched a movie or sat in the stroller. Just so we are clear, I would generally never do this in a million years. It is way too hard to focus, but the shoot was for an 18 year old boy, not a wild toddler who would be easily distracted by my little ones. They were really good the entire time. I was so lucky because it could have been a disaster. If the weather would have just cooperated with us the past week, none of this would have had to happen, but we made it work and I am really pleased that we got them both done.

Annie had a great morning at therapy. We rushed home and took Lee Lee to the airport. :( Then it was time for lunch, nap and work. I also got two sets of proofs delivered tonight. Quite a productive day. Lee Lee should be proud! It was so nice to see the sun today. The gloomy weather was getting really, really old.

Okay, I am off to work on pictures so I can get a sneak peek up on the La La Blog tonight. I don't know if I can get both sessions up today, but definitely by tomorrow.

These are from playtime after lunch and before nap. Both girls love blocks. Annie has decided peek-a-boo behind the curtain is her favorite game!

Girl, I don't know how you do it, but I'm so proud of you for everything you're accomplishing! And although my bloggin has been less than stellar lately, I love that I get to see some of my favorite baby girls grow up every day! Keep it up Kel...you're a rockstar!

OK, now you're just showing off!! I'm SO PROUD of you for the way you got it all figured out today. I was feeling awful about leaving when I knew you had no childcare, but way to go. You figured it out splendidly! Already miss you and the girls. And can you believe this--it's raining. What a change of pace! NOT I wish I could have been at the teens' shoot just to take pics of you while wrangling kids! Where were the blocks???? Love em. Love and kisses to all, Lee Lee

Man, I wish Elizabeth smiled as much as Annie. She is so serious all the time... or at least while I am trying to take her picture.
