I decided to enter a contest with Rock My Photography. The theme is "Hit Me With Your Best Summer Shot". Here's a summer picture I took of Abigail sunbathing in our back yard. She's such a little diva!!!

I have time to update the blog since Jackson's speech therapist had to reschedule since her car broke down. Jackson has been having the most RIDICULOUS temper tantrums I have ever seen lately. If i sit on the couch and don't automatically turn on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (which Disney doesn't tell you but it is actually baby crack), he grabs the remote control and hurls it at me. Of course after that I'm not turning it on, so he starts screaming "MOUUUUUUUUU!!!!!" and pointing at the TV, but screw him he threw a remote at me so I'm not putting it on. Then he hits me and screams at the top of his lungs. Add to this that this kid is a freaking Houdini and is able to break out of his baby-proofed door now and therefore won't nap, and I have not been a happy person. This as been going on for about a week now. It's driving me insane, and it's scaring poor Abby.

Abby started on string beans today - her first vegetable. She HATED it. It was hilarious though.

June 6, 2012

It's funny - I spent all day taking pictures for my photography class, filling out this long worksheet and using the settings my professor wants me to, and the only picture that I liked enough to edit was this one:

Jackson and Abigail were MONSTERS today. Particularly Abby. She's teething - horribly. On top of that I'm pretty sure she's getting sick. She had a 100.3 degree fever (not sure if that's from the teething or not) but she was sooooo cranky that getting any pictures done for my class was nearly impossible. The poor baby conked out at 6:00. I hope she's feeling better tomorrow.

I need to tell myself to take a minute and BREATHE. Between Jackson's Developmental Intervention, OT, Speech Therapy, Mommy and Me, and class 2 nights a week I haven't had an opportunity to update on here. I can't promise that I will keep posting every single day like I was, but I will definitely post as much as possible. I found out today that I made it into the top 5 for the Click it Up a Notch photo contest!!! Go vote for my picture!!!

Here's some photos catching up from the past week. A few before Abigail's bath time:

 And some from River Fest. Check out Jackson's awesome shades:


Stephanee and Brian:

I love Abby in this outfit:

Father and Son

I had a really cute picture of Abby and Kelly but we had a bit of a wardrobe malfunction. I promise to get a good one soon. I really need a family portrait of the 4 of us!!! It's always Kelly and the kids and never me!!!

OK I skipped a few days.  I really didn't want to, but between Jackson's therapies and trying to get my business off the ground (it's doing awesome btw) I've been incredibly busy. I had headshots for my friend Steph's high school theater class on Thursday, then on Saturday we had Kelly's cousin Meghann's wedding. I don't feel comfortable posting pics from my business on here unless I'm friends with the person (you can see those on my business website), so here's the wedding pics (taken on my crappy point and shoot):

We didn't get back from the wedding until 2am and I didn't get to sleep until 3am. On Sunday I had my first newborn shoot, and needless to say I was exhausted!!! The baby was beautiful, and even though she didn't sleep at all until the very end, I got some good shots. 

Today is Memorial Day (woohoo summer!!!). We went down the shore to get some lunch and walk around, and when we got home the kids played in the baby pool and with the water table and Kelly cooked ribs.

Yay I took pictures today!!! Today Jackson FINALLY started Speech Therapy with Miss Galina. She seems really nice and said that she thinks we will give it a couple of weeks but she thinks she will want to see Jackson 3x a week. That makes me really happy, but also really sad. I just wish that he didn't need all of this help, but I am glad that he's getting it. If that makes sense.

Check out Abby's diva pose. I love those rolls!!!

Jackson was helping Kelly grill:
