Happy Valentine's Day!



The above picture was totally by accident. You'll also notice a white cord next to her head..she was playing with the blind cords.

Let me just say that I have some serious respect for photographers. Especially when they are taking pictures of toddlers. The last time we took Natalie to get her picture taken, she had just turned one. She was standing, but not walking yet. Today, I decided I was going to try to do a photo shoot of her for Valentine's Day. It is SO HARD to take pictures when she can get up and walk off! Regardless of that, here are a few that I was happy with.





That last one of both of us was tough to get. How in the world do you get the camera to focus, to set on a timer. Obviously, I wasn't in front of it when I was trying to focus, because I needed to be able to reach the button. HA! And here's my belly shot at 5 months.

Now I'm gonna get the girl fed and down for her nap. I plan to print out these pics, along with a few others, and make John a small album to give him tonight. Talk about waiting til the last minute!

That first picture is amazing! She is such a beautiful girl and I am so blessed to be a part of her family. I cannot wait to see your new addition. My sister is my best friend and I am glad that Natalie will have that experience. Those girls are lucky to have two such great parents! Happy Valentines Day!!

Love the pics they are awesome. Look at that sweet belly. It seems like you are showing more this time. Now that's not saying you are huge or anything because you totally aren't. You still don't even look pregnant from the back!

aww that belly! too cute.
Love that first one. I usually sit him down and set the camera down (put it in focus on him) push the timer button and run to get into the pic. :) hehe

Love the Valentine photos! You did a great job on the shot of the 2 of you.

Order the remote for your Rebel. It is not very expensive and totally worth it.
