Here's a new one of Lex (that's what I call her...not really her official nick name). Brianna calls her Little Cheeto. I have no idea why. She just started calling her that and it stuck....we don't even eat Cheetos : 0 I think Alexis is about to crawl. She keeps getting herself onto her tummy and even somehow sat up by herself once in the middle of the night. She has started talking or repeating the sounds she's heard. She says mamma, dada, bubba and hi. She claps her hands and does the little indian thing with her hand and mouth. I guess she's nine months old in a few days.

I've been working on a logo so that I can give out contact cards. I'm hoping that will bring me more picture taking opportunities. I will probably end up going with something TOTALLY different but here's what I have so far....
Well, that's all I have for now. You may see a lot of soccer pictures from me soon. Samuel starts in a week or so. His games will be on Saturdays so I know that will work out better for the grandparents.

I love photographs taken in allies. I love the color, the texture and just all the old stuff... so yesterday I decided we would try out a new location. Just a side note...when we were home getting ready to leave I was fixing Samuel's hair and as I gelled him up he decided it would be a good time to confess that he dropped my toothbrush in the toilet earlier that day. Ooooh, I know smoke was coming out of my ears. I made him take me to the bathroom to show me which toothbrush it was (hoping it was Chance's : ) and nope, it was mine. The one I just used to brush my teeth!!! RRRRRRrrr!! He knew I was mad. Then he said "mommy, do you forgive me." Man, I really didn't want to yet but how can you not :( Bittersweet. So, we went on our way to our "photoshoot". I bribe them with candy and stuff when I do this, BTW. This time it was Sonic. For some reason there were a lot of mosquitos so we had to be quick. I think my favorite from the day is the last one of Samuel. Next time I'll try and get a bunch of Alexis. I just didn't figure it would be a good idea to plop her down in mosquito ally.

Party Pix

I know its been a while but here are a few pictures of Brianna at her party. She had so much fun I think she smiled the whole day! Speaking of her birthday...a few days before her birthday I was trying to coach her on the way to church. She got in with all her accessories, of course. She had her sunglasses on, her toy phone and a pink purse loaded with other junk. I was giving her a really serious talk about how she needed to tell people thank you if she got gifts. In the middle of trying to make my threats her toy phone randomly rang and she politely said "hold on, I have a call." Gotta love her.

I'm throwing in a few of Samuel and Alexis for fun. I'm trying to work on black and white conversion and getting better catchlights. I haven't figured out exactly how to sharpen for the web so the images may look a little soft.
