3 months

Fiona is three months old!!

And, as an aside, I am really feeling the limits of my skill with a camera. The only classes I've ever taken were focused on black and white film (which I LOVE). But for speed, instant gratification, and color, I can't really beat digital. So I'm working on it. But man, I am frustrated with the difference between what I see in my mind and what I can actually make the camera do lately.

With subjects like these, though...it's hard to go too far wrong.

Soaking up the last bits of summer

Knowing that we were going to have a new baby this spring, I thought that we should just prepare ourselves for a summer of hell. I know, I'm such an optimist. But I didn't really remember the massive sleep deprivation from the first time around fondly. I don't do well with lack of sleep. Instead, the truth is...this summer has been awesome. And we're trying to enjoy every last minute.

So we've been spending time at the library, escaping the heat:

Eating lots of summer fruit:

Sleeping more than I remember from the first time around....

wearing pretty dresses to go to tea with fairies:

eating cupcakes:

and just generally loving our newest member as much as humanly possible:
