in the mood...

to take pictures of the girls today, i was at ann's and i was photographing some stuff for our etsy shop (should be up soon!) and i snapped these along the way... i am so excited for some better weather, it seems the end of the winter is always a down time for me creatively, i just dont feel inspired at all.

so the sun was shining today and i put it to good use...










and the little rascal who wouldn't let me take ANY... (i stole this one and i was lucky to get it)

mayhem...

my girls both seem to be at ages where i cant take my eyes off of them for a second. estee has decided it is really fun to color the walls or smear desitin all over every inch of the basement, or throw all of her toys out of the closet and you couldn't even believe the destruction she can do if she manages to sneak into my studio for even just a minute. add in a crawling baby who puts everything in sight into her mouth and well, most of you know how it goes i'm sure...

but just look at those faces, most definitely worth it.

estee loved hanging out with all of her friends at jen's house today, and who wouldn't?

doesn't their play house make you want to be a kid again?


and one of the little one and i...

i want them to know

just how loved they actually are, i know it is alot to ask considering i dont think i really knew until i had children of my own, but i do remember this one time i was probably 4 or 5. i was sitting on my mom's lap with my arms around her neck, i remember she looked at me and told me that she loved me and i could feel it to my core, i knew for certain that she meant it and still do to this day.

thats what i want my girls to feel everyday of their lives, that they are loved so completely...

estee's view... (again)

i just love plugging in her camera and looking at her photos... i think it is so funny that everyone she takes a photo makes some kind of a funny face for her and i also think it is funny that ann and i are both wearing the same nasty t shirt on different days and i also think it is funny that whenever she is looking at me through the viewfinder on her camera she says "mommy, i love you so much"... pretty sweet that girl.

take a close look at the second photograph, i think it is such a great photo.



and one of simone looking sweet, we updated our shop today with lots of cute goodies.

say what??!!!!

my little girl is really 7 months old today??? i cant believe how much she has changed in the last bit... crawling, clapping and pulling herself up in her crib and on anything she can find.

i cant help but think about all we went through when she was so small, how ill she was and how much i worried about her. what a reminder she is to me of all that i have to be grateful for.

she is so special to me...

a polaroid i snapped of her this morning, she fell asleep mid-crawl



and a few more polaroids from the past few weeks...







oh and don't forget to vote today... i am going just as soon as chris gets home from work!
