I took the kids' pictures while we are up at the cabin for the work and let me just say how adorable they all are! It was fighting tooth and nail with most of them, but I for some shots that I love and I'm glad I did it. I am so happy I have gotten into photography and learning the most I can about my camera (Canon 6D) these were all taken with an 85mm lens. I could sit and stare at their faces as I edit all day!

Remington turned 1 today. I am excited and sad. When a baby turns one they aren't really a baby anymore. I still rock him to sleep and swaddle him and he now drinks from a bottle, but soon he will start walking and talking and growing up and them he will move away from home. I'm not ready! 

At 1 year old he is 19 lbs and is 28.5" tall. 

We had a fun photoshoot with bubbles at home and Remmy had fun! 

Then at the cabin today we got creative for Remington's first cake tasting! Needless to say he loved it! 

My little man is so sweet and quite the mommys boy! No one else really gets to hold him without him crying hysterically to get back to me. Love him!

My little yawning dinosaur is almost 1! 

Thursday, June 5, 2014

I see you staring at me as I hand my kid my phone to play on, so that I can check out my groceries and bag up my now soggy ice cream. I see the condescending looks as the thoughts roll through your brain of how technology driven my generation is and what a handicap it is. I see you stare as I deny the phone to the now begging and whining 6 year old as I try and teach patience and consistency. I see you eye her tantrums and try and cover your scorn and think how you would never let your kids get away with this. Well let me tell you, if I spank her you will call CPS on me and I will get all 4 of my children taken away from me. If I let one of them run and play on the bench by the check out line they will get kidnapped by some crazy person and I will be the headline on MSN for another 3 million people to judge that I let one of them out of my sight. If I yell for them to be quiet and be respectful  you will get uncomfortable. If I leave them all at home with a sitter I have to pay more money an hour than I used to make in a day in the workforce and then I get scoffed at for not introducing my children to the world or heaven forbid putting them in daycare!! I see you scoff as I try to discreetly nurse my baby, but you wince if a mother formula feeds her newborn. So let me tell you, I'm doing the best that I can. I created these beautiful little people for me to watch over and care for and prepare for the world. And I will do my darnedest to creat nonjudgmental human beings, so that you don't have to deal with people like yourself. God bless you and have a beautiful day, bless your heart...
