Rain forest

Thought I would take some shots of some of my favorite things for Nolan. I am loving the rain forest collection we got. The colors are beautiful and I absolutely LOVE the little monkey! The other animals are precious too!

The highchair and jumperoo are still in the boxes as he won't be using them for a bit but the pictures on the box sure are cute. I am getting the open top swing put together as well. :) Chuck did a good job picking out the collection, he also loves the monkey!

Catch of the day...

Chuck likes to fish in the mornings for a bit after he gets of work. Today Nevin woke up and saw him out there and decided that he would get himself dressed and go fish too!
I can dress myself mom!
I guess he still doesn't have the matching part down yet. :P But he sure is cute!
Of course I had to take a picture of one of the fish too!

In a day

Two of my boys marking big milestones in a day, Of course the pregnancy hormones don't help much with my emotions, but time just goes by too fast! Nevin is THREE today, My little guy has grown so much!

Nicholas started 1st Grade today, My little helper will be gone all day. I sure will miss all the conversations we have and questions he asks during the day. Of course he LOVES school and was way excited for it to start.

Come inside it's fun inside...

Nevin's Party was Yesterday, he wanted a mickey mouse club house cake and adored it when he saw it. It was a fun day, Chuck spent a lot of it putting together his new toys, including a pretty nifty Sand box from Nana. Here is Nevin taking a break from "helping" put together the sandbox:

Only 5 more days...

Nevin will be THREE years old in just 5 days, time sure does fly! He is so excited about his birthday, he has a toys r us ad that he has looked at about a million times and points out what he wants to Chuck and I. Of course it changes daily but we got a pretty good idea. ;-) Here is my 2 year old one last time.

Online baby shower | Cincinnati OH Maternity Photographer

I had a surprise online baby shower put together by the girls on My Signature board It was really fun and so unique. We all got on and chatted and played shower games. They even put together a gift basket and mailed it to me and tortured me with not being able to open it until the day of the shower. :-P They are such a great bunch of girls. I must say that Angie and Danielle really go above and beyond their board duties! I love those gals! Here are a couple shots taken by Nathaniel, he is the best 4 year old photographer I know!



I just love everything and had a great time. Thanks again!

Waiting for Nolan | Cincinnati OH Maternity Photographer

Yesterday Chuck and I took some self portraits. I love the way they turned out. Chuck is so patient with me being such a perfectionist. I think his love for Nolan and I really shows in these. I am happy to have these memories captured.

Daddy love

Loved so much already...

We have a family of geese that think they own our yard. The boys have made it worse by feeding them. Some of them are pretty mean. Nathaniel and Nicholas were feeding them off the deck the other day and I snapped a few pics.

(notice the ribbon from Nicholas' Chuck-E-Cheese medal, he loves it and puts it on each morning)

After we came inside they decided to use the deck as a restroom so I spent a good hour cleaning and housing it all down. Fun times!
