Couple more

I'm off to bed, after I water the tree, pay some bills...

First, I love this picture of Lucy. But can't decide if I love color or black and white more...

And one of Duncan so I can easily copy a b&w of him to my computer at work:

Tim's home!!!

I don't know how single parents of toddlers and babies do it! Tim was out of town all week and I was about ready to go to the funny farm.

I was going through some older pictures tonight. I had the first one in color before, but I tried black and white and just love it. Then the sideways look cracks me up. These were taken in the car, so I tried to get one of Duncan way in the back...he was having none of it. Like the alien straw sticking out of his booster seat?

Is it Friday yet?

Been loads of fun lately... back to work. Trying to get into a routine again, the hardest part is never knowing when Lucy will wake up to eat. Usually it's 5 or 5:30, but today my alarm went off at 6 and she was still sleeping. So then I had to feed her and rush like crazy with everything else. But wow, she slept from 10 to 6!

She's actually slept a lot today, either sick or getting used to her new routine. This was her all night tonight:





















These aren't the best pictures, Aidan saw me take the camera out tonight and started telling me to take my picture mom, take Lucy's picture now. Say Cheese Lucy!! Here he is mid-say cheese:




















Duncan was watching the Charlie Brown Christmas show tonight and Aidan was lounging half watching and half "playing" Duncan's leapster (he watches the advertisements for other games over and over):




















Hopefully I can get a good picture this weekend for our Christmas cards. We did get our tree up last weekend and Aidan didn't even mess with it yet, knock on wood.

Happy Thanksgiving

Here's my little turkey:















We were playing hide and seek, everytime he was under the dining room table... tough game!

Back to work tomorrow :( Definitely sad, nervous, stressed, all that...

Luckily it's just one day this week.

Quick pic

Just took a couple pictures today...Aidan was moving way too fast to get anything but the back of his head. I think he was playing games with me.

Lucy was smiley happy girl:

Busy week

Haven't had any time to play with pictures or get on the computer this last week or so. Saturday found out that Lucy has 2 ear infections. Sweet little thing wasn't fussy at all so I had no clue...I just took her in for her stuffy nose and cough. So she's been seeing what new things she can stain bright pink by spitting out her antibiotic.

She had her baptism on Sunday. She was amazing, didn't cry at all, just a tiny little 2 second whine with the cold, cold water.

Dad took pictures while I was busy:


I'm trying to figure out if mom was giving me finger gestures in this one:


Aidan was all about the cake, talked about it the whole day before, and as soon as we got out of church he had to savor a piece:


Here's Lucy after her bath, Tim took a bunch of the kids in the bath, but I wasn't able to really make any web friendly...don't need sickos finding my kids.


I go back to work in less than a week, so I am getting stressed trying to get ready for that :(

Moody Model

I took Duncan out to get some pictures, trying to be fair since the younger two are around more for me to practice on. I was crampin his style though, he wanted to run around with his arms instide his jacket...which looked incredibly dumb, but man was I evil to suggest he try using his sleeves for something besides wiping his nose. So I got some half decent ones and some of him glaring, but mostly just a blur of motion as he thought he was on the cross country team or something.

Been busy here, Aidan and Lucy both have stuffy noses and horrible sounding coughs. They are both pretty cranky and want lots of attention, usually at the same time. Getting ready for Lucy's baptism Sunday and trying to get ready to go back to work in a week and a half.

Bout bed time here, time to go see if I can convince Lucy of that...

Fall

Oh, I forgot last time...Lucy had her 2 month check up today. She's 12 lbs 11 oz, 23.5 inches. She's 90% for both height and weight. Everything is just perfect with her. Poor thing got 3 shots...

I never noticed the dead end street right across from our house. Took Aidan over there to burn off some sugar and got the coolest pictures. Here's a couple quick before I go through the rest:

Halloween

I've been having problems putting pictures up here, tried and tried on Halloween...today again. But if I load one at a time instead of all of them it works.

Here are Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Jack Sparrow II. (Aidan has to be the same as Duncan) And Captain Jack Pumpkinhead:













And a ballerina and a dad:



















And I decided to play Martha Stewart for Duncan's class party since I'm home and have time, HA! ( cookies and rice crispie treats)




















Halloween morning:

Big blue eyes and pretty yellow leaves:
