Six Months

 
 
Rosemary is six months old and 18 lbs of adorable baby. How'd that happen already?
To celebrate the occasion, we had our well-check at the doctor this morning and got four shots (OWIE). I'm thrilled that she won't come down with the flu and polio now, but there's nothing fun about shots. At least she has taken some good naps today.
 
I feel like I just did her five-month update and not TOO much has changed since. But lately she...
 
is still Cece's biggest fan.
 
wants to eat real food REAL badly (we will start that soon!).
 
is sitting unassisted quite well.
 
delights in all of big sister's toys.
 
is still a wiggly, giggly (and drooly!) ball of happiness (usually).
 
 
 
Love you, darlin'! This half-a-year has just flown by!

Jayaraj Wedding

 
Over the weekend we attended our friends' Azure and Satish's wedding. Between the ceremony and the reception, I was whisked away on a golf cart and I got play the role of friend-ographer for about a half hour. We shot a few formal wedding portraits.
 

 
 
 


 I also took some photos of Azure and Satish with their families.
 
 
 


 
Then once back at the reception, I was off photo duty and back to supervising my kids. I tried shoot some of the details at the reception. (And there were many! A decadent dessert table, origami decorations, farmers market flowers, and more) However, while doing so, I was either simultaneously eating a donut or holding Rosie. Oh well.
 


 
 
 

Even though Joe and I left with the kiddos around 8 p.m., I have to say it was a lovely celebration.

 
 
Congratulations once more! Wishing you guys all the best!
 
And thanks again for the chance to photograph! And to blog ; )

Preschool!


 

How did you grow so big overnight?
How did you get so smart and bright?
Yesterday you were asleep in my arms.
Today you’re growing off the charts.
I’m so proud of you.
 
Frances England
 
 
Off she goes! Although it's been a slightly emotional week and day for me, neither of us cried this morning. Too much excitement!
 
 Somehow these past three years have flown by. Now I have to share my baby with the world while I wonder if I taught her enough good and useful things. I  hope she remembers to be kind, have fun, listen, and wash her hands. And by sharing, I mean she'll be gone only a few hours a day just down the street. But still. It's sharing.
 
I'm so proud! Rosie and I already can't wait until she comes home and we can hear about her day.

Ren Fest '14

 



 

 
 
 
 







Behold! We packed our satchels and children and ventured to the Renaissance Festival this past weekend. Cece has since remained enchanted with the experience and keeps thinking of reasons for us to return. ("So, I'm out of pixie dust... we need to go back to Renaissance Festival and get more.")
 
We only experienced a small fraction of the fest so we really might need to make a return trip before the season is over. Though it was crowded, we managed to meet some mermaids at the Mermaid Cove and visit with some fairies in the magical Fairy Wing Forest. We feasted on alligator on a stick and a blooming onion. We also tasted some wine and mead. Cece and I zig zagged through a maze and Joe climbed a fairly good sized wall. Also, Cece rode a pony and the butterfly carousel all by herself. How magical does she look? Needless to say, this girl was in her element (and so was I!). I'm excited for when Rosie is older and we can have two princess fairies scampering about.
 
Until next time, Ren Fest!

Five Months



 
At five months, Rosie...
 
loves looking at herself in the mirror.
 
has a squeaky, yet husky, little voice.
 
is practicing sitting unassisted (and tipping over every so often).
 
thinks Cece is the funniest person on the planet.
 
makes sassy faces.
 
tries to steal my food off my plate.
 
And basically, she just gets cuter by the day.

Adelie Amie





  
My friends Kristina and Tony welcomed their darling baby girl just a little over a week ago. I've known Kristina since I was just a wee little freshman in college. She encouraged me to try out for the hockey cheerleading team and the rest is history.
 
You wouldn't know it from these photos, but there were also two dogs, my two kids, and three grown-ups present in the nursery while these pictures were being taken. Adelie tolerated the paparazzi for a few minutes and we got a few good shots! I keep going back to the picture of her snuggly head... mmmmmm...
 
Congrats again, you guys! Adelie is just beautiful.
