April 29, 2012

I'm sorry to report that I didn't take any pictures today. We drove out to Pennsylvania to Paul's memorial service, and I thought it might be weird to take pictures there. It was a really nice time. Shelley had it at a restaurant near her house and had an open bar and buffet. We spent the time remembering Paul and catching up with family we haven't seen in a long time. Afterwards we drove back to Shelley's gave the kids a bath, and drove back to NJ. Actually as I write this we are still in the car. Good thing blogger has an App!

April 28, 2012

I swore to myself that I would never write about poop on this blog, but this story is too good not to share.

Jackson has been in his toddler bed for about a week now. This afternoon, he woke up and went to play in his room. He was only alone for 5 minutes while I was on the phone with Kelly (who was at work). When I walked into his room, I'm immediately hit with this horrendous smell. I look around and see Jackson, naked from the waist down. Then I look at his bed, and there's a turd in there the size of his face. Keep in mind this kid has been constipated for the last two days. I looked back at Jackson. There's crap on his feet - and he's been walking around the room. There's crap all over his ass - and he has been sitting on the floor and apparently one of the chairs in there. There's crap...on his chin??? I don't even want to know. I couldn't even be upset. The only thing I could do was laugh. It was either that or cry. I immediately bathed him, Swiffered the floor, changed the sheets, wiped everything down, opened the window, and sprayed air freshener. It took a few hours, but the smell is finally gone. Kelly was nice to me and brought me home flowers after that debacle.

Stephanee and Nikolas came over for a little play date today and I took some pics:

April 27. 2012

Some of my props came in today! I got my beanbag chair, the extra filling, a new basket, and a blanket :) Jackson had a great time playing with the boxes:

I've gone prop-crazy. This week I've gotten a bean bag (which Kelly is picking up for me today), a backdrop stand, a bunting, a fleece blanket, and I'm going to order some seamless paper. I'm ridiculously excited. I have a couple of newborn sessions coming up and I can't wait to use everything!

I realized today that I haven't taken many pictures of Abigail lately, so here she is right before bath time. Also, I need to stop going down to f/1.8 because it's not sharp! Sorry they're so soft!

Today we met my dad at Dunkin' Donuts and had a coffee. Jackson wore my dad's sunglasses the entire time (I wish I had my camera with me!). Afterwards we went over his house and he made us dinner. After I got them to bed I met a bunch of my Mom's club girls for karaoke night. It was so much fun!

I didn't get a chance to take a ton of pictures today.

April 24, 2012

Today was bittersweet. We moved Jackson to his toddler bed. He WAS NOT happy about it. He cried a lot when I put him down. Hopefully tomorrow goes better.

I apologize since a bunch of my posts are missing photos. I'm building a website for Danielle G Photography and they were coming up so I had to delete them. I'll try to fix it though.

Checking out his big boy bed:

It's finally raining, and of course it's a day that Kelly is off!!! Just our luck!!!

I spent most of the day looking up props for my photo sessions. I'm going to get a backdrop stand and a few rolls of paper to go on it, and I also would like to get a bean bag, some blankets, and some cute little hats/bows. Of course then I got to thinking that I should forget all of that stuff and just get a new lens. Choices, choices!!!
