Professional Family Photos

Here are a few of our favorite photos from the professional shoot. We had these taken when Carson was just one week old. We really wanted to capture him still looking brand new.

A few family shots...

And then, our little princess. Andrea captured "the essence of Alex" perfectly! Our favorite pic is the photo of Alex holding Macy in one hand, and her sucker in the other. That's our girl!

And finally, Daddy and Alex's "Sic 'Em Bears" yearly photo. They do this ALL the time together. Too cute!

It's been a while since I've posted happies so here they are:
* Sleeping on your tummy! I forgot how heavenly that is.
* Sleeping for more than 2 hours in a row. Um, yeah...
* Table side guacamole....on the patio. Yum.
* Watching the numbers go DOWN on the scale rather than up!
* Grape Propel- the best beverage ever.
* Having my hubby home after a week of travel. Brave undertaking with a 3 week old and a 3 1/2 year old and a tired mommy.
* Saying "the kids"-- I love it. I feel like an official mom now that I have "the kids." Makes me feel old too. I have two kids?!? I usually wake up still feeling like the nanny.
* Step-hamsters: yes, my parents got a hamster for Alex. Her name is Ariel. They are already on version three. So much drama over a hamster. It's too funny! She has a princess cage. She doesn't get to live at our house :)

Ready for school...

Alex is in preschool at the Butterfly School three days a week now! She is such a big girl. Of course her first day of school was the day I went into labor. She is learning so much. She comes home singing songs in Spanish and knows the months of the year, etc. She loves all of her friends and seems to be "the busy child"-- as usual!

Here is a funny pic of Alex dressing herself for school. I love Carson just sprawled out on the floor next to her....this is our reality!
