A Stinky Blogger

I admit it, I have been a stinky blogger.  I started off with so much potential, I had great hopes of keeping our family blog constantly updated, but something has happened, and I have been busy, and blogging has been in the back of my mind...or well, not really even on my mind at all.  I promise I will get better (because, hello, I know you are waiting on the edge of your seat for me to post an update).  I am about to go on "maternity leave" (it seems so cheesy for me to even call it that, but what else should I title it?) and then I will have nothing but time to photograph my cute and growing family and post updates about all of the exciting things in our lives; diaper changes, feedings, sleep deprivation, you know, the usual newborn type stuff. Oh ya, and I can write about some of the funny toddler things that happen day to day too.

There isn't a whole lot to report as of now.  Sawyer is great, less than a month away from being two! That little girl is just the best...and all this crap about the "terrible twos" seems to be a big fat lie, because so far (well, I guess she isn't even 2 yet!) I love love the stage she is in.  As for myself, I am doing pretty good considering I am walking around with a watermelon tucked under my shirt (or hanging out the bottom of my shirt...I never really bought any real maternity clothes, so I am starting to outgrow everything) and hopefully that little watermelon will present itself as a baby in the next week or so, and of course, Marc is busy working away and being a pretty rad dad.  Was that entire paragraph one sentence? I am too lazy to go back and check...so excuse my punctuation errors...

Life really is pretty good (but don't you hate it when people only blog about how perfect their lives are?) and I have very little to complain about (well I am always complaining about something...to Marc...but unfortunately that is just in my nature and there is little we can do about it) and I am just excited for the things that are soon to come.  Anyways, check back, one of these days I will have awesome pictures to post and fun and exciting stories to tell, but until then...adios mis amigos :)

p.s Marc asked me to never do a post with just a lot of writing because that is "sooooo boring"...so consider this my apology in advance :)

Sun-Kissed

Today I got to come home to this little babe who looks like she has been kissed by the sun...


She totally makes me smile :)

splish, splash


I am very very excited about this.  I was always afraid to dunk Sawyer in the water...so Marc did it...and Sawyer survived, and she wasn't scared, and she even asked to be dunked again.  Yay for summer coming and pool days :)

Favorite Moments


My favorite moments are the ones that take place at home when you are just hanging out...being happy.  The ones where you aren't trying to have fun, you just are having fun. My favorite photos are the simple candid ones that just seem to happen, no special setting, no special wardrobe, just totally organic. These pictures represent both of those things.  My daughter and I were kind of bored the other day so we decided to go hang out in the baby's room just for the heck of it to switch things up a little bit.  Since my daughter can easily occupy herself (but she just likes me to be present) I had my camera with me so that I could entertain myself.  I am happy I had my camera because I was able to capture these little gems.  Sawyer totally has me (and her dad) wrapped around her little finger, we just can't get enough of her!  




And on another note, I just have to say how fabulous Marc is.  Today I had a doctor's appointment so Marc took Sawyer to the pool as soon as he got home from work.  After the pool they went and got dinner and then headed to the park so that I could have some time to myself to go and get a pedicure.  It was so nice...I rarely do things like that, so when I get the chance, I savor them.  Thanks hubs! :)

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to my favorite Momma! I love you so much and I am so lucky to have you as my mom :) You are the best!


I also scored an awesome mother-in-law too...I really lucked out in the mom department!

This is Sawyer & her friend Miley; they were playing so well together at the beach, it was bliss!

Trying to Catch Up

Life has been really busy - lots of good things have been happening, but now I am feeling a little behind on my family photos, and that drives me nuts.  I probably won't be able to get all caught up until the end of the week, but here is a little bit of what has been going on.

There has definitely been a lot of park going...


And then my mom was here to meet her newest granddaughter (my sister's baby Mazie)...


And there was a little crafting with my mom and my friend Sheri...


And of course we have squished in some beach time.  Last Saturday we went to the beach to watch our friend Scott in a surf competition...


We took a family bike ride to Panera Bread for dinner (of course, safety first)...



And the bike ride was complete with a snake encounter! (Notice the skid marks...Marc almost went right over the snake, yikes)


I have been busy watching my daughter be cute (and stuff her face with snacks)...


And tonight we hung out with friends and played and had a BBQ...



We also had friends over to watch the Lakers, and I went to a baby shower, and I have been keeping busy with my photography

All in all I would say things are pretty good these days.  The countdown for Harper's arrival is down to 45 days, and we are so excited for her to get here and come play with us! I am trying to soak up this last month & a half of being a mom of just one child.  Sawyer is growing and getting bigger and smarter and funnier every day, and we are so lucky to live in our little world filled with lots of happiness (and love...but I don't want to sound too cheesy).
