more sleeping pictures.

I can't help it. I'm a total sleeping baby picture junkie. To be honest, I'm an anything sleeping junkie. I'd love to get my sleep on. A little sleep fix. mmmm, yeah. Anyway, these are my current favorites. She may hate me for posting these to the world wide web before she was old enough to tell me not to, but even if she was old enough, I'd be posting them. That's an indication of the mother I'll become, so hold on to your hats. It's gonna be a bumpy ride.
She's finally started noticing and playing with her toys, and she fell asleep playing with her keys the other night. She put them on her wrist herself, although I don't think she knows that. Everything she does seems to be a surprise to her at first. "Who's poking me in the eye?" She sleeps through most of her tube feeds at night, but we obviously don't, so she's totally wearing us into the ground. The reason I mention this is because the keys reminded me of how the other day I was so tired that I tried to start the car with a binky instead of my keys. I kept thinking, "That doesn't feel right." I hope nobody saw me, because I probably had a very dumb look on my face

If you haven't noticed, I adore her dinosaur pj's. She looks like such a baby in them.
This one's the reason I decided it was time for another sleeping baby post. This is how I found her this morning when it was time to leave for work.
She's usually up by then, but she woke herself up at the crack of dawn this morning talking in her sleep! She woke me up, too. Charles had had her all night, so we switched places, and he was finally able to get about three or four (more like three, though) hours of sleep. And I just watched her and giggled. She was waxing eloquent about something, but she was fast asleep. I'll get a video if it happens again.

First Word!

Olivia officially said "Mama" today! It wasn't her first word, though. She said "mundane" a week ago. Ironically, a very unusual and un-mundane first word. Yeah. It really happened.
Also, Livie and Lynny are finally old enough to actually notice each other. It was funny at the baby blessing when Olivia wouldn't stop staring at her cousin long enough for a picture.

this is for the grandmas

I told my mom I'd post these, and I think Grandma Jean would probably appreciate these, too. Eat your hearts out, grandmas!

Fall family pictures

My old friend Cate Sheffer has started her own photography business called CiaoBellaPhotography. I was looking through her portfolio blog and I couldn't resist booking a session- she's so talented! Make sure you check out her blog at She's also got some really fabulous introductory rates. I'm so glad she was able to do pictures for us. I love these pictures, even the ones with me in them! It's nice to have some family pictures without nurses and tubes and IV's and stuff. I love having my baby home!
