Eleven More Days…Allegedly.

When I first got pregnant the time could not go fast enough, but now that I’m nearing the end I want time to S-L-O-W down.  As the due date nears, I have found myself going about business as usual.  Sure I think about the baby here and there, but I am not consumed by it.  I think it’s my way of enjoying the time we have left sans-baby. Or perhaps I’m just living in denial!

Due to our business being online, I am amazed at how many people are waiting for the birth of our baby boy!  There are people all over the world that have sent us their best wishes, and it’s pretty awesome.  Thank you!

We’re in-between houses now, conducting business as usual in an unusual place: from the mother in law’s couch.  The dogs love it because they get to hang out by the fireplace all day long and Laila gets to go for a run in a foot of snow now and then.  Jax is out of commission with a possible slipped disk, so he’ll be heading to the neurologist and/or chiropractor within the next few days.  Poor little guy.

Right now, Laila’s a pancake on the carpet, Jax is staring at the fire, and I have earned my spot on the couch after an hour at the gym and 2 hours filling crown molding at the house.  Sweet relief.

Playing Photographer: Take 1.

I have been drooling over the CANON EOS 60D D-SLR camera for a long, long time, and finally my dream of being a pseudo-photographer has become a reality!  Over the last 2 weeks I have been able to play with this machine to my heart’s content.  Very quickly I learned, well, that I have a lot to learn!

Here are a couple of shots that I have fallen in love with: starring none other than our little munchkins Jax and Laila.

Above, Laila is wishing she had the power to open doors, while below, Laila and Jax enjoy a ride to Grandma’s house!

Now all I have to do is invest in a new external hard drive because we’ve already taken over a thousand photos!
