     My son, Trace-O, played t-ball this year for little league. It has been so much fun! He is actually the funniest kid on the team. He runs and runs back and forth from home, straight across the pitcher's mound, to second, and so on. Poor thing gets so confused. This week's t-ball game is the next-to-last one he'll get to participate in. Unfortunately, due to late notice, we did not make it to picture day on time, so I tried snapping a few good ones at this ballgame.

So Much Art!

     I love doing art projects and coloring pages with my 4 year old, but let's be honest; they pile up and clutter the house. I hate to throw away the memories of doing them, but there is just seriously not enough room in my house to keep every art project ever. From now on, I'll be taking his picture with his art. It's much easier to organize and store digital pictures. The extra special projects can be kept or printed out.

What I'll Spend More Money On This Time

     Pictures are priceless to me. I am trying to learn and improve my photography, but I will definitely spend more money on professional photos from now on.
     I cannot express how thankful I am to have had a photographer at my second born's birth and to have gotten those precious newborn pictures this go 'round.

     I am in love with my photos and they are worth every penny spent. I have the best photographers and will gladly support their businesses. An ironic fact is that both of my photographers are named Brandy/Brandi. Hah!

Perfect Photo Fail

     I had this brilliant idea that I want(ed) my boys to be brand reps. I thought I'd grab a few things to practice modeling with. Everything matched perfectly. My oldest was being cooperative. It was a sunny day, but then reality set in... I just tried to pose a 4 year old with a 2.5 month old. What was I thinking!? This is what I got. lol
He was being so good and cooperative! <3

This is so exhausting.

Calvin was always happy right until we put him down. -_-
