my little superman…..
eli has this sudden obsession with superman and spiderman. we are not sure where he got this, we never have the tv on at home except for OPB if at all. but as you can see he found himself a cape, or as he calls it his “cap”. (it’s really a cover for a little camping tent) i couldn’t resist trying to capture my little boy in flight! he seems to know exactly how to put his arms and run at full speed, this must be something that little boys are born knowing how to do! last night i went in to check on him and move him back on to his pillow, he stirred a little and made a few noises i couldn’t make out and then he said “spiderman”! i guess he’s even seeing them in his dreams!
i just can’t get enough of this face!

beautiful boys……..
UPS delivered a new toy i ordered for my camera today, so i just had to try it out! and you can’t see it very well, but i just painted that chair and another one like it to go on either side of my hutch. i’m in love with it, and thought it would make for some good pictures! we had a really good day today! the weather was perfect, and we just hung out around the house and played. i just love it when at the end of the day when you can look back and know that you wouldn’t change a thing!

oh, i know he is wearing he same thing in yesterday’s pictures……he won’t wear anything else! he calls it his “95″ . it was so warm outside today, and he still wouldn’t take it off! crazy kid!

first baseball glub………
eli has been asking eric for a glub for weeks! his little hand is just a bit too small yet, but eric finally took him, he’ll grow into it eventually! he is SO silly! he just kept doing weird things, and he wanted to wear it on his right hand, and couldn’t understand why that wasn’t what you were supposed to do……
does it get any better than a daddy teaching his boy to play catch?

oh, a little update on the photography business…….
now if you go to it takes you to my photography blog, and the actual website is under construction! i have the BEST uncle matt in the whole world! he’s doing all of this for me, and i’m SO grateful! i’ll keep you posted as to when you can view it. my business cards have been ordered and are on their way! this all seems like a dream, but it’s really happening, this has been my dream since i was like 14 and i just never had the confidence in myself to actually go through with it! i think that this whole blog thing has really given me the push to put myself out there. everyone is so encouraging! thank you!

my boys………
dylan found his shadow! i remember when eli did this,( i’ll have to dig out the pictures) , dylan just followed it around for awhile, and wasn’t sure why it was following him! look at how excited he is! i love capturing their new discoveries!
daddy and eli. this is such a special bond. don’t you see it? i know, sometimes eric thinks he misses out on things because he is at work, but i will NEVER be eli’s daddy! their relationship is going to be something very special to watch grow and change into an amazing thing!

Dylan’s new bike……..

he wasn’t overly thrilled about it, that’s for sure! much to the disappointment of me. i was so excited to give him something of his own! we waited until eric got home from work on thursday to give it to him. he actually cried when we put him on it and tried to get him to ride it! i’m not sure why, i know he wasn’t feeling 100%, but he still wanted to play with eli’s bike, i guess sometimes you just don’t know what is actually going on in their little heads!
he was happy when daddy was helping him jump off the curb! don’t you just love it when they are trying to learn to jump, and they put their whole bodies into it? he actually fell trying to jump off the step on the play structure at our park on sunday! it was about a six foot fall, he hit his eye and fell head first, landing on his back, it knocked the wind out of him. pretty scary, but he seemed to be fine once he caught his breath. BOYS, what are you gonna do?

eli and i made playdoh yesterday. i’ve never done this with him, but we used to do it all the time when i worked at the daycare, so i thought he might enjoy it. he did such a good job doing all the measuring and mixing all by himself.
he was pretty proud once it was all done. i really need to do these things more often. it’s so hard with dylan running around, and wanting to eat everything! plus, eli just likes to have his own things to do without dylan taking over! all he wanted to do with the playdoh was cut it. he has a little obsession with scissors. he wants to cut everything! this didn’t last too long, i think it was really about the process of making it! he might get that from me, once the creation is completed, i’m looking for something else to do!
this wasn’t the greatest recipe, way too grainy! if you have any recipes that you like to make with your kids, leave a comment or email them to me at!

what is there really to say that can describe how deeply saddened i am for this senseless act that took place yesterday. i’m horrible with words, and trying to sort out my thoughts and feelings, but i just couldn’t go without at least honoring of those precious lives that were lost. their families are in my constant thoughts and i pray that they might find comfort in the arms of God at this tragic time.
