New Niece!

Most of you know my sister, Charise, and I were prego at the same time. She was due one month after me. It was fun having her close by so we could swap pregnancy woes. She was a huge help when Rylan was born...all while being 9 months pregnant! And she pulled off the pregnancy looking so great all the way to the end! We were all so excited when baby Brynn (isn't that name cute?!) arrived on October 14th. She continues to look so petite when you put her next to Rylan. It's amazing how much difference 5 weeks makes at this age. I am sure they'll be good little friends and cousins. Plus, we are adding another cousin into the mix on this side in just a couple months! We are anxious for Aunt Camille's baby boy! Plus two baby cousins coming on the other side of the family in the Spring...we are ALL about babies right now and loving it!

Grandma with the two babies!

We tried to get a nice picture of both of them together. This was the best one I got:
And 10 seconds later.... (oh, well...we tried!)

I had to stick in these pictures of Grandpa with Rylan (his namesake!) from his visit up here to see both babies. After having 4 daughters and 1 son, Grandpa is proud that in January, he'll have a full basketball team of grandsons! Go team.

Oh man, those pictures are enough to make me a little baby hungry!! By the way, we thought about both of those names for Callie. They both are beautiful!

I actually like the screaming one the best. It is the most real at least it is with my new one.

These pictures are awesome! Grandpa with the baby and I love Rylan's wide eyed face with Brynn.

Both Charise and You were very blessed! Miss you all! :)

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
