Newborn Session

Baby Erin

My dream babyshoot goes somewhat like this: I arrive and unpack. Talk with parents, send them on errands, I have the baby to myself.

Baby Erin and her parents, blogger/writer C. Jane and Christopher Kendrick, made this happen for me.

And it was indeed dreamy.

Why the glasses? These are the very same frames C. Jane wears in her news column photo. Why not?

plotting

Today Isabelle and I went shopping together- kind of a mother/daughter bonding experience, no boys allowed.

As we strolled through a department store, I noted Belle's quiet demeanor. Usually she talks nonstop wherever we are, but today, at this moment, we were walking hand in hand, silently.  I relished in the peaceful moment together.

Isabelle broke the silence with her adorable tounge click and deep breath that signifies that speech will now begin.

*click* *breath* "Momma?"

"Yes, Belle?"

"Momma... when you are dead, can I have your makeup?"

Immediately, genuine, hearty peals of laughter came from within me and echoed through the store. I could not believe it. Here I was, thinking that we were having some sort of moment together, in serenity, when really, my 4 year old is scheming ways to acquire my mascara.

Tonight I'm sleeping with one eye open.

To the mother of these three tiny babes: Maybe you should let your little gal wear makeup a bit more frequently that I let mine :)

sleeeeeep

I'm unsure of what to do with myself lately- because I'm all caught up on sleep and it's October. October is usually the month where I'm on the verge of a nervous breakdown for 30 solid days.

But this October is different! Tyler and I have put our heads together and we *think* we've come up with a slick way to keep up with the holiday session rush.  So far so good.  But it's only October 5th so I won't get ahead of myself.

Talk to me on October 30th. Or don't. I might start crying.

Gonna go to bed now, and it's only 11:15!

in case you were wondering, yes, this child is a miracle child. :)
