Poor Baby.

My poor baby was sick today. Or at least I think he was... He was really fussy last night at dinner - refusing to eat, etc. He finally went to bed around 8:00 pm and slept until..... ONE in the AFTERNOON!! I finally woke him up (after checking on him several times of course)

Once I woke him up he was lethargic and clingy which is NOTHING like him. He ate fine and drank tons of water and fell asleep in my arms a couple hours later... again, not like him.

He was pretty much zoned out all day long until Johnny came home... and you wouldn't have guessed anything was wrong with him. He yanked his pacifier out and yelled "Daddy!" running to him as fast as his little waddle could carry him.

It was precious. And I wasn't the least bit jealous. Just glad that he enjoys his Daddy so much. :)

And while I felt bad for him that he was out of sorts today I have to admit... I enjoyed slowing down my day to sit and snuggle.

Here's my precious guy staring out the window looking for his Daddy to come home.

Waiting For Daddy

Two Peas in a Pod

These two peanuts are connected at the hip. I honestly rarely think of one without immediately thinking of the other.  I think it'll be the same way with Nicholas & this next little guy. There's just something about having your kids SO close together that immediately lumps them into the same age category.

Adeline is spunky and strong and logical and loves to be the boss.

John Michael is sweet and gentle and silly and emotional and loves everything Adeline loves.

They're like two different sides of the same coin... complimenting each other perfectly. I hope they grow up to stay best friends, the way they are now.

New Beginnings

Its a new year... and with a new year comes the endless attempts to make ourselves better people with less bad habits and more good ones. Its a noble gesture but one that I have yet to accomplish. No more than 90 days into a new year and my resolutions are either long abandoned or have recently fallen prey to my indifference or laziness.

This year is different. I've resolved not to make any new years resolutions that I don't want to do.  For example, I do NOT want to stop eating McDonalds. I do NOT want to work out every day (or ever for that matter), I do NOT want to start back up with a rigorous weekly cleaning schedule. I simply don't.

I mean I get it... the whole purpose of resolutions seems to be to motivate yourself to do the very things you don't ever want to do... but it simply doesn't work for me! And to be honest it doesn't seem to work well for other people either... hehe

So, this year I am trying something new. I'm trying to put together a list of things I really WANT to do.  All of them at this point include photography but I have other things brewing in my mind - including a variety of areas of my life.  One of them is to take a picture/week. I've written out themes and asked a good friend who is good at photography to join me in my endeavor. (If anyone else wants to join in just shoot me an email!)

Who knows, come March I may end up dropping the ball and count it as another 90 day resolution but for now its something I'm actually excited about. I'm being challenged... even at the get go.  I'm the one who made the themes and still this week had me stumped. I have a couple other ideas I'd love to try to post before the weekly theme is up but since the goal is one per week I'm counting this one done as completed!

So here you have it....
