I did some senior pix as part of the barter w/ the doula. Her son (the youngest of four boys) has the biggest dimples I've ever seen! He seems like such a nice guy. He wanted some of his pix done w/ his grandparents. Aw...
I've got another wedding gig coming up next weekend! And its not for anyone that I know already! This is a real, strangers coming to me for my services, job! I really hope it goes as well as the last one.
We're going to the lake this weekend... ah, looking forward to relaxing. Its supposed to be nice weather. Its rained almost every time we've been up there this year! Ew. Anyway, gotta run.

Wedding Pix

John and Jenny's wedding was simple and elegant. I was honored to be a part of it and felt that things went pretty well. I'm pretty proud of how the pictures turned out and I hope they like them as much as I do. Aren't they a cute couple? Aw...

This Week...

Thursday Deb, Dane, Isaac's cousin Jenna (she's 4yr) and Nate and I went to the Covered Bridge Festival in Parke County. We met up with some of my family. Grandma (my mom), Hannah and Kyle were at Billie Creek Village in Rockville reenacting a 1900s one room school house with some other home-school families. I have some of the greatest memories of doing that growing up. We've been going there during the Covered Bridge Festival for 10+ years now! Maybe Nate and I will go dressed up next year!

Nate and Daddy hard at work at the family business - Penrod Counseling Center. Somehow alot less work gets done when Nate is there... hmm... I can't imagine why! jk

3 months old!

This past Saturday was Nate's 3mos b-day! He's grown and changed so much in such a short time! We've been so incredibly blessed by him already. Its hard to imagine our life without him.
Isaac and I went on a date without him for the first time a week or two ago. We put him to bed and left him with my sister, Lauren, while we went to a late movie. Of course we would go to "Flight Plan" - a movie about a woman who's child goes missing! It was a good movie, but nerve wracking! We were very happy to come home and see Nate safe and sound in his bed!

Also, Saturday was my friend Mia Bley's baby shower. Here, Mia is pictured with Sarah Patterson another girl from church who are both due in the next month or so. It was nice to get together and show our love and support to her. Our church has a baby shower game thats become a tradition now, where we video tape the father-to-be a series of questions before the shoer, then at the shower we ask the mother-to-be the same questions. After hearing the mom-to-be's answer to the question, the guests have to guess if dad's answer will be the same or different. Then we show the dad's response. Mia's husband Eric is an interesting guy and had some pretty comical answers. Its a fun game and helps you get to know the couple a little better which is cool.

Look at how cute he is! He is really showing interest in his reflection now and getting into his toys more. He's doing great sleeping at night (most of the time) but his naps during the day aren't very regular. Some days he'll have a good long nap and be happy all day - others he'll have a whole bunch of cat naps and get cranky and tired. Oh, well we're still working out the kinks of this whole parenting thing... I think we'll be doing that forever, right? Anyway, I've had alot on my mind recently, pray for my patience and peace, I've been over-worrying lately. I have a hard time being open about my struggles... I feel like I need to put on a happy face all the time. I'm trying to work on that.

Sorry no pix

Hey I know at least one person has been to the blog and been disappointed at the lack of updated pictures. I'm sorry.... our computer is being weird and its not letting me upload to the blog right now. I'll have Isaac look at it soon and see what he can do - he's so much better than me at stuff like that.
Nate is doing well. He's growing cuter by the day. Smiles are becoming easier to get out of him and he's so responsive when we talk and play with him. Its so much fun to see him changing and see his personality starting to emerge.
I love you all and hope you're having a good day.
