About Me

My photo
Our family consists of Paul/Daddy. He loves his little girls, wife and family more than anything in the world. Velvet (aka MaMa Velvet or Mommy). I'm a photographer and very happy stay at home Mom who can't get enough time with my little ones! Lily (aka Monster or Princess). She's our 12 year old smart, talkative, beautiful young woman who is impressing us everyday! Addison (aka Doo or Addi). She's 8 (almost 9!) artistic, sensitive, lovely young lady who has a quick sense of humor! Scarlett or Bo for short! She's 7, sassy, outgoing, cute as a button and has a passion for a few very select food groups! Finally we have our littlest princess, who has blessed us with her presence until it's time to go home. She's almost 1 and the happiest little baby around! She loves clapping, snuggling, shaking her head no, and laughing at her sisters!

Terrible 2's

It's a very real thing.

The Terrible 2's.

I would like to offer up exhibit "A" as proof.

Exhibit "B": A small collection of terrible quotes and (if needed) there even worse translations...

Gib me yo ko-los. I need candy. = Give me your quarters. I need candy.

THE BABY MADE A STINKY DANGIT! = Mom and Dad... Scarlett has pooped in her pants and it is disgusting and unacceptable.

I need my yight-say-bo. Wanna fight?! = I need my lightsaber. Wanna fight?!
(The "Wanna fight?!" portion usually includes being wacked over the head WITH a lightsaber.)

yeave me a-yone. I coloring. = Leave me alone. I'm coloring.

Mama. You stop talking to me!

Mama. Don't see what I'm doing. Don't tell me no.

Sampson pooped in the yard!

I need chocolate. You find some for me.

Yeah Jackass! = Mom fail. It happens from time to time.

Water Works

I have a baby.

She's only 7 months old and she's mastered the art of manipulation.

Happy Baby.

Until she realizes I'm holding my camera.

"Mother, this is HIGHLY unacceptable. I WILL NOT allow you to take my photograph."

Que water works and load of snot.

There are 40 more photos exactly like this... just in different stages of "agony".

Kid knows how to work it.

I see epic power struggles in our future.

That Face...

Do you have any guesses as to what caused this face...

or this face...

or ANY of these faces...

She kept dropping this...

Her toy camera.

It's okay baby girl.

Mommy would have the same reaction!

My Big Middle Little Girl

In case you've never had the pleasure of meeting Addison in real life I have something to tell you.

She's shockingly large for her size.

Her two year pediatricians appointment went like this...

Nurse: Wow, she's only 2?

Nurse 2: So this is her 3 year check up correct?

Nurse 15: Oh my gosh! For 3 her hair is very short!

Pediatrician: You know she's the size of a 3 year old right?

Mom: Yes. No. She's only 2 and Duh.

Beyond how obnoxiously tall she is for her age group she's still my little baby!

To prove it...

She still has to use a stool to brush her own teeth...

AND stand on tip toes!

I love my Big Middle Little.

Soccer Studette!

Lily is doing soccer this year!

She's over half way through the season and loving it so far!

I've got a couple photos from the morning of her very first game to share with you all today!

This is Lily in the front yard!

Her first "soccer" pose.

This is Lily in the parking lot!

A little less enthusiastic about the soccer pose and the picture taking.

This is Lily after I told her I was gonna take 80 more pictures cause she looked too darn cute not to!

This is Lily in the parking lot with Daddy taking pictures.

We'll just refer to this as her "game face".

The real name of this face can't be typed because this is a family friendly blog.

This is Daddy making Lily laugh!

We needed at least one more smiling photo!

This is Lily after we bribed her with treats.

Anything for a smile!

Don't judge me.

So we headed off to her first game and I'm proud to report she did a fantastic job!

After the first 10 minutes of this...

and this...

and a little bit of this...

Coach Daddy was able to kick her butt into gear and get her ACTUALLY playing soccer!

Go Hot Shots!!!
