happenings around the house...

it's no secret...our busy little lives have been slowed down by our new addition...i am slowly trying to grasp the idea of going out in public with two children (one of them being a toddler that is currently "testing" her boundaries quite a bit) on my own, but am sure it will be a bit before i get up enough courage. it just seems like a whole lot of hassle...loading and unloading children into the car, into carts...so for now bo goes to the grocery store, or i sneak out while he is home from work and can play with the kids. anyway, the other day while we were having lunch i thought we should make some cupcakes. so we did. ava loved it. she loves stirring and pouring, so this little baking thing was right up her ally!

some serious stirring going on there...
eyeing that yummy batter...you know she stuck some fingers in it before it was over!
one of ava's new favorite things is holding brother. she absolutly loves to hold him and often requests this when company is over holding him...such a smart girl...put yourself in the middle of the attention! of course, everyone that has come to visit has been so good about paying lots of attention to ava, i am so thankful for that!
she truly adores him! i think she looks like such a little mama in this picture!
jenn lankford (portraits by jenn) came up from kerrville to take pictures of the little guy last wek. long story, short, i won a free newborn session from her on her blog. anyway, she came with this fabulous silver spoon...so of course, i had to run out and get one of my own. thought it would actually look cute hanging in hollis' room and then if i ever get any newborn work i can use it again! this is one of mine...can't wait to share the shots she got, i have only seen a sneak peek, but they are fabulous! and she was super nice, such a pleasure to spend the morning with talking photography and taking pictures of this cutie!

I LOVE IT!!! I actually gasped when your blog opened and I saw him in the spoon {in a good way}. TO CUTE!! I thought it was photoshopped at first, so it's a real giant spoon!? Amazing!

Ava is so darling, what a great big sister! That cupcake batter looks delightful too!

Aunt Jen needs to come see!!!!! Love you guys!

Very cute kids you have! :)

It DOES get easier!! (getting out I mean). Brady and Claire are 2 years, 2 months apart--I think just like your two. I remember being nervous! I kept Claire in her carrier longer than I kept Brady just because it was good to have that extra hand just in case!
