Good Eye Good Eye

So being the crazy person I am and LOVING family pictures I yet again attempted to get some family pictures I love. Our awesome friend Elizabeth, who has an amazing eye for photography, got up super early this morning and brought her darling little boy Atticus to Yorktown beach to snap some shots. I knew it was going to be coldish thanks to the weather report. What I didn't count on was the five hundred mile an hour wind!! Hello! So poor Elizabeth had to try and get some good shots in with both boys freezing and the wind blowing my hair EVER which way. Thankfully she is patient enough that we will probably take some again when it is not windy. But I was SO impressed with the shots she did get in such horrific conditions. Some of them follow:

So we have been spoiling Liam (I more specifically) and waking up with him whenever he does at night, usually only once, ever since he was really sick. Well I have grown weary of this and decided that tonight it was over. So I put Liam in the crib (yes Sam's precious crib) and spent the rest of the evening hyping Sam's big boy bed. I showed him his name on the wall and got out his Thomas Blankey and pillow, we read stories and said prayers and then I gave him his teddy bear and milk and laid down next to him. I thought he would poke my eyes or try and talk to me but it was as if I wasn't there! I watched him as he tried to give his teddy bear a drink of his milk (so ridiculously cute!) then found his corner of his blanket and rubbed it saying choo choo. Then drifted off to sleep!!! I couldn't believe it! Sam is in his big boy bed!!! Well see if we can keep it up. Next on the chopping block-- the binky!

You guys are so cute! I can't believe how long your hair is Kelly! Congrats to Sam on the big boy bed...I too was surprised at how easily Clark went to it. Good luck with the binky...luckily I had the help of my sister's dog on that one. I think the hardest thing about losing the binky is that it really means they are growing up, and who wants that? That was a little hard for me.

These pictures are really cute. You look beautiful especially of the one with you and Liam. What a pretty background and I can't believe Sam is such a big boy already!

Cherylyn... that would be because it is totally fake! Thank you very much piece in extensions. I am totally over my sholder length hair and these are helping me not hack it off again! I only wish I could get it this long!

Such cute pictures!! I love the hair extensions too! I think I might have to invest in some. You're so good at getting family pictures...we have yet to get a good family picture. We'll have to attempt again when we come out, maybe Lucy we'll be a little more cooperative this time around:)

I followed the directions on this link http://sjhblogdesign.blogspot.com/
to put the digital scrapbook paper on my blog. She gives you step by step directions...which is really nice since I'm completely computer illiterate. Our computer wouldn't let me open the header you made, but the one on your blog is super cute!

Your site looks really good. Do you have a lot of different backgrounds? When you put up a new background did it delete your added names and what not? I tried changing mine a while ago and it deleted a ton.
