Six Candles...

We had a fun couple of days, Nicholas' birthday was on a Thursday which of course is not the best day for a party so we just did a little cake for him here at home and let him have most of his gifts from us.


Friday night we did Chuck-E-Cheese, some snaps:





Hope everyone has a great weekend!

My Middle man

Nathaniel is Chuck's little clone, he looks and acts just like his dad that's for sure. He came to me tonight and said "Mom, I picked some spots for you to take my pictures at." So I followed him outside, he had quite a few places picked out and was of course pretty cooperative because well... it was HIS idea after all. Here are just 2 from one of his many "spots."

Fun in the sun

This weekend we went to the lake, I had so much fun watching the boys play in the water with Chuck. I am one lucky gal with all these good looking guys around and there will soon be another one!
Here are a few snapshots from my point and shoot:

Little Miss M. (sneak peek)

My first shoot in Ohio was with Little Miss M. She was adorable to say the least. Watching her fresh walk was so fun, and might I add she was FAST. Here is a sneak peak:

27 weeks | Cincinnati OH Maternity Photographer

This pregnancy sure is going by fast, these were taken on the 27th week mark It will be 28 weeks in just 2 days.
27 weeks
Expecting Nolan
Lots of kicks and moving and a few cases of the hiccups. The boys love my belly they are drawn to it each time they walk past. They are all so excited at the thought of a baby brother. Nevin handed me a tiny stuffed bear the other day and told me "put this in your belly for Nolan" I think it's one of the sweetest things I have ever heard. I had to explain to him that I could not of course, but told him to keep it safe and when Nolan comes he can give it to him himself. He was thrilled with the idea and tucked the bear safely in his underwear drawer. (his hiding spot)

Sweet boy

Nevin woke up earlier than the other boys this morning, so I took the chance to get him one on one for some photo's. He is normally distracted by his brothers. Although he still did not give me any eye contact it was still fun following him around the yard watching him explore. He even let me "dress him up."

Deep in thought

Shortly after we came in it started to rain so I am glad we got the chance to get out and play for a bit.

The yard

I have to say I just love waking up and looking out my windows. It is so beautiful and green, I am sure in the fall when all the leaves change it will be just another aspect of it's beauty. Here are some shots of the yard:
Love seeing this in the morning.

Sparkler fun

On the 4th we had a wonderful time. We got lots of fun fireworks for the boys and of course sparklers. Chuck went a little overboard but I am sure glad he did because we have lots left and the boys just love watching them all even the small fountains. :D We had a nice time with the family. It's so fun watching all the boys together. It was Nevin's first time with a sparkler so I had to get some pictures.

Nevins first sparkler
Chuck had fun writing my name and "I <3 U"
I <3 U 2!
Nicholas and Nathaniel liked making circles around themselves:
We had a great time. I will have more to share from last nights "competition" over the lake. All the neighbors come out to their docks and set off what they have. We didn't know about it until we were doing some and one of the neighbors came and asked us to do them out on the dock so everyone could see. They had some REALLY cool ones. We had already done most of our bigger ones the night before but we still had fun watching all of theirs.

Big brother

Just Have to brag about Nicholas for a second. First can I just say I LOVE this boy! Seriously I could not have asked for a better big brother for the boys, he is so good with them and has been such a BIG help to me with everything. Not to mention how freaking handsome he is. :) Time sure flies, he will be in 1st grade this year!
