Peeking In On You

On Sunday we took a family outing to get a 3D/4D ultrasound done of baby girl. Brian has been itching to get one done since we did one last time with A. I think he secretly wanted to confirm (again) that it really is a girl in there hehe. Yes it's still a girl, by the way!

Anyway, baby girl was taking a nap or just being shy because at first all we got was her profile. If she did turn toward us it was with her hand in front of her face or in her mouth and we couldn't get a good look. I turned and poked at her, I drank cold water, I walked around in order to get her to move. Oh and move she did but with her hand in front of her face the whole time. Apparently she really didn't want her picture taken. Ummm do I really have another diva on my hands?! After 15 -20 minutes the ultrasound tech was about to call it a day and just have us come back another time, she even said, "guess you'll just have to come back another day and we can try again." Wouldn't you know the second she said that, baby girl decided to move her hand away and look at the camera?! I swear she is laughing at us in this picture

Here she is about to move her arm back in front of her face. She gave us a small window of opportunity to capture as many pictures as we could then she was back to snuggling with her cord and the wall of my uterus. Good times.

Anayah was so funny. She was NOT thrilled about a stranger touching my belly and kept telling the ultrasound tech she couldn't touch baby sishter. She was even less thrilled when she used the wand on my belly. A kept telling her "no scratching baby sishter." It was so sweet and funny at the same time.

It's so crazy to me how much these pictures look just like A's pictures! I can't wait to meet you sweet girl and kiss those cheeks! We love you and are excited for your arrival!!

Family Pictures

I posted a few weeks ago on the photography blog about Jessica doing our family photos this year as part of a photo swap and I promised to show you our pictures once I got them back and ordered Christmas cards. Well finally I get to share them here! You may have already seen them on facebook but it's ok, you can look at them again :)

We had a really fun time even though this momma was stressed that A's pants were dirty after about 5 minutes...oh well, thank goodness for Photoshop! Jess did a fabulous job keeping up with a toddler who doesn't keep still while managing to capture her actually smiling at the camera instead of ignoring it like she does to me most days.

I love the spirit of these pictures, the playfulness and character in each and every one. Thank you Jess for taking the time to create memories that I will always cherish. I love them all and can't wait to have you shoot us again! Here are the favorites from the day that aren't on our Christmas cards or being given as gifts HAHA!!

Love them.

Christmas Cookie Club

Having blog issues is not fun...especially when you have pregnancy brain and you are constantly forgetting stuff, then having to go back and remember the things you wanted to blog about while you were unable to. Ugh. Anyway, before I forget I wanted to tell you about our first annual Christmas Cookie Club (from two weeks ago!).

That is the book that served as inspiration for such an event. My neighbor introduced me to the book when she asked me if I wanted to join her club. I thought it was such a great idea that I decided I also wanted to start one with my friends. Well if you've actually read this book you'll know that their cookie club is slightly different than a traditional cookie exchange. There is an entire list of rules that the members must follow, yes I said members. It's quite an exclusive club with only 12 people allowed. The biggest difference however is the fact that each member of the club bakes 12 dozen cookies and brings each dozen wrapped like a gift to give to the other ladies. Yes, you read that right. 12 dozen. So yes, that means since I joined two cookie clubs, I was baking 24 dozen cookies!

Here are all our cookies wrapped in their beautiful packages. I can't tell you what goes on at cookie club...that's for members only :) but it was a fun night and I'm excited for this new tradition that we started.

You'll notice that there aren't 12 of us in attendance. One of the rules of cookie club is if you can't attend you either send your cookies in your place or you forfeit your spot. One sent her cookies and sadly a few had to be cut. Bummer for them. Thank you ladies for baking your butts off and being a part of a new tradition. Love you all!
