Go Cubs!

Here is our cute little family showing our team spirit. Aren't we all cute in our Chicago Cubs gear? Isaac's family is a bunch of die hard Cubs fans and they're trying to convert me. I'm not quite there yet.

Photoshop Fun

I was playing around on Photoshop and created these filmstrip collages. What do ya think? I like them. I'm still working out a few kinks but not too bad, eh? I have a wedding that I'm doing in October, I'm reading a book on how to pose couples and groups to prepare for it. I really really hope it goes well and we have good weather for some outdoor pix!

Cool Dude

Nate thinks he's a little stud in his shades! Surprisingly, he seemed to like having them on and was all smiles for mommy's camera! He's getting to be so much fun! Sometimes I have a hard time getting anything done during the day cause I just want to play with him all the time!

While we were at the lake relaxing this weekend (just the 3 of us) We had plenty of time to play with Nate. He is smiling much more often and its so much fun to try different things to see what he likes. He reacts to our voices and faces so much more, and he is gaining more control over his movements, pulling our hands closer to him when he wants to keep playing. So far he seems to like us more than he does toys... which is cool. We are very much enjoying our son and the joy he brings to our lives. What a sweetheart! Does he have the cutest smile you've ever seen or what?!?

First Farm Experience

Last week Nate and Jett got to "play" with Shania the miniature horse and the new baby goat on my parent's farm! They may not get too into it now but it won't be long before they love the animals! Aren't they so cute?!?

Nate likes taking a bath. He enjoys the water. Isaac and I tag team when it comes to bathtime. One of us does the bathing, the other does the diapering and dressing afterward. Nate usually gets a little upset when his bath is over, he seems to want to stay in the water. We're hoping to get him into the lake this weekend if weather permits!

2 months old!

Well, Nate turned two months old on the 8th... He's grown and changed so much already. We're totally smitten with him to say the least. His personality is showing more and more. He can focus better and his eyes even follow people across a room sometimes. He's such a good natured baby, he's got me spoiled. We'll prolly have a holy terror next time!
I'm helping another photographer with a Crisis Pregnancy Center event on Tuesday. Pray that everything goes well. I met with her the other day and was really encouraged to hear that she started out alot like me - in her spare bedroom with no formal education, wanting to stay home with her son. With the $ from my next few gigs I'm gonna try to get a little more equipment. And Isaac is gonna help me set up a simple website soon. I'm really enjoying doing this and hope that it will someday be an actual side income instead of a hobby. We'll have to wait and see. :-)

We went to the lake for a long holiday weekend. The weather was beautiful! Nate got to experience his first campfire and first boat ride. He was pretty cool about the awkward life vest for awhile but got tired of it and wasn't afraid to let us know that he'd had enough.

Nate's 2 month birthday is tomorrow... I'll have to break out my backdrops and take some more pictures! he he I still can't get over how amazingly cute he is. Omigosh... he is making so many new sounds and faces... aw, its adorable!
