Tubby time

I always get good pictures of my kids in the bath tub. Here's why.....they are confined to a small space so they can not run away, and the best light in our entire house is in our master bath! It's a shame though that the best pictures of my children are of them naked. I hardly ever get pictures with both of my bigger girls both in focus so this is a treat! I can't wait until Eleanor is big enough to sit up on her own in the bath tub.....3 girls will be loads more fun than 2. Rub-a-dub-dub Maddie and Charlotte in the tub!

My favorite

This child is so photogenic and expressive!
It's a pleasure to take her picture.


Maddie is such a beauty!

Name that kid: 16 week edition

So, I know that I'm not even up to week 16 in my pictures yet, but I felt like doing a little comparing! I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but I am SO happy that I have all of the girl's pictures organized by week. It takes any work or guessing out of the equation when I want to go back and look something up. I have Maddie's pics by week all the way through 2 years, Charlotte only has the first 52 weeks, and I'm hoping I get through the first year for Eleanor as well. After that, I have my pics organized by season and year (winter 2011) and then divided into folders by event (indoor play, art, wrestling). Anyhoo......tangents aside......I find it really easy to tell my babies apart. I'm sure that you do too! They look alike, but not identical in any way. I'm glad that they have their own special looks! I really like going back and seeing how they compare with one another. Here are all 3 girls at 16 weeks old. Can you name that kid?


Weeks 12, 13 & 14

She is growing.....too fast. Life is happening.....too fast. I can't seem to make time for things like blogging, and exercising, and laundry. I am remembering to take pictures though, and I guess that is more important than actually putting anything on my blog. I make sure to feed my family, bathe somewhat regularly, and sleep as much as humanly possibly with an infant. Other than those things, que sera sera. I find it hard to believe that my little Eleanor is going to be 4 months old in a mere 2 weeks. She will soon begin teething and eating solids and sitting up and hopefully sleeping through the night. But for right now, she is my smiley, giggly, squishy, kissable, mellow, hands in mouth all.the.time, sweet smelling 3 month old. Life is good!
