Baby Malachi's Sneak Peek

So my friend, Abbie, over at Just a Bunch of Characters finally had seven and he is beautiful! I wasn't able to meet him until he was 2 days old because I had to go out of town. Last Saturday I had the pleasure of taking his newborn pictures and I must say we had quite an interesting time. Here are a few of my favorites that I have ready for viewing!

When Abbie found out that she was having a boy, we put these letters in her hands (her belly wasn't big enough) and took a picture for her to use to announce that he would definitely be called Malachi. So I thought it would be fun to use it in our shoot as well!

baby feet and piggy-toes!

sweet little hands and fingers!

I got this shot in the hospital. Doesn't it look like he's saying, "Here I come to save the day!"

Would you believe there were 6 brothers and sisters sitting right behind him?

Baby "geek"!

Is he not the sweetest little dinosaur ever?!

Sweet smiles! I think he knew we were done and it was time to eat!

Recent Funnies

Here are a few funny things that have occurred this week! (Okay, so the first one's not quite as funny as it is just a little incident from the evening.)

While at Kohl's the other night, we had a couple of things. Wyatt broke his first store item. We are so grateful they didn't require us to pay for it. It was some sort of lantern or something. After he broke it he said, "I broke the yellow one." I guess it was bound to happen eventually!

A little while later, Kev left me with the kids in the children's clothing section to go look at something else and Wyatt exclaimed, "Daddy is getting away!"

While Kev was gone, I asked Wyatt to help me find a new outfit for Maggie. After a few seconds of looking, Wyatt calls out, "Ouuuutfiiit, where aaarrrrre youuuuu? Are you behind the clothes, outfit?" I couldn't help but just laugh. Kevin returned shortly and got to witness it for himself. We both had a good laugh!

Today I got to take Wyatt to the eye doctor. Once in the waiting room with both kids and a clipboard full of forms, I attempted to sit down. There was a nice little row of three chairs so I placed the bags down on one end and apparently while I turned around and tried to situate myself in the middle, Wyatt climbed up on the other end and slid himself in the middle seat. I sat on top of him. Luckily I caught myself before I squashed him, but the one lady a short distance away that got to witness it all got a pretty good laugh at our expense! I did too!

I love my life!

Celebrating Maggie!

Prepare for picture overload! We did not spare the camera as we celebrated the first birthday of our sweet princess! It was a great weekend with her party on Saturday and some family time on her actual birthday on Sunday. Thanks to all her helped us celebrate our precious girl. Some of our family were unable to make it but we appreciate the love they sent our way! Be sure to notice Maggie's awesome birthday outfit. It was made especially for her by her "Aunt Abbie"! Also a big thanks to "Uncle Mark" for taking most of the pictures so Kev could video while I enjoyed my baby girl!
