Fabulous is just one word to describe the pictures Sara took for Anna Claire's newborn session. I always look forward to seeing her work and she never disappoints. We were able to get in to see her when Miss Priss was 12 days old. Of course the boys came along...and their cars. I don't think we have any pictures of them without some type of car in there. All 3 of our sessions with Sara have included their cars and trucks. I love it because it will remind me of this time with them as I look back over the years. It captures who they are.

I love, love, love how the pictures turned out. Check out her blog for the previews. I've sent many of you the password for all the proofs. I hope you enjoy them as much as we have. One of my favorites is the tutu. I plan on using it in pictures as she grows:)

You may remember these pictures from last summer. Our maternity session turned out just as fantastic. If you are looking for a great've found one! She knows how to get those perfect shots that capture the personality beautifully. I look forward to her capturing our life for years to come. I love looking at my walls and seeing the personality of the boys shining upon us. It brings a smile to my face and laughter to my heart. Once we get the new ones on our walls, I will have to take a picture of all of them for you to see. I was anxious at first with getting professional pics of the boys. I knew there was no way they were going to sit posed. I have fallen in love with her style of photography and could not imagine my boys and now baby girl being shot any other way. Thanks Sara for the gift you have given us to enjoy for many years to come. A gift we can pass on to their children.

While you are on her blog, check out her new high school senior promo. Sure do wish we had this option when I was this age. So much fun! The video is fabulous too. The talent in her family is amazing. How neat to have a brother with this talent. Too much fun.

Getting ready for the ACC tournament

I Know, I know...

Wow, what a slacker I have been! But we have plenty of excuses:) My mom was here for a would have thought I could have gotten something posted!

Our lap top was in SC trying to get "healed". The boys had dropped it and the screen is barely hanging on. The packing tape is working for now. We call it our Dave Ramsey computer as it cost more to fix than it is worth but we are not really in the market to buy a new one right now. Then we got the computer back without the cord...and a dead battery. OK, so that makes 2 excuses. There are more. I ended up with 2 infections: a mild uterine infection and cellulitis at and below my incision. Not really fun at all. Thankfully my mom took the boys to SC for almost a week and I was able to rest some. However, in doing that, she downloaded all the hospital pics onto her computer....and then I couldn't post them:( I think we are up to 5 excuses now. My run of antibiotics for the infections brought on thrush for Miss Priss which she kindly passed onto me through nursing. Talk about painful nursing. Oh my! Now at 5 1/2 weeks we are STILL trying to get rid of the yeast and I am hear to tell you that clearly when the Bible was translated into English they forgot to include in Genesis the part of painful nursing when they spoke of birthing pains for the women....Clearly, this is a form of midevil torture! It is so wearing on you mentally but I am to stubborn to throw in the towel. We shall see. I see my OB on Tuesday for my 6 week check up and we just might have a come to Jesus talk about getting rid of this yeast. I never knew something could be more stubborn than me:) How is that for excuses? I hope to have the hospital pics soon....we were to get them this weekend but my sister got a tummy bug and we didn't head to SC. Yep, last excuse!

Sooooo, thanks for sticking around and coming back. I will try to stay updated. The perfectionist in me hates it when I get behind. Then when I do....I just don't do it if it can't be done right. Oh the control issues I need to get rid of. How I survived life with twin infants is beyond me:) Lots and lots of help and letting go.

Here are my last prego pics.

32 weeks with the boys: 2 days before they arrived

38 weeks 6 days with Miss Priss: day of delivery

One day old. I fell in love with this hat that had a big pink bow attached. I guess one forgets how little a newborn is...the bow was bigger than her:) It still doesn't fit! I think it might be 96 degrees outside before it fits her. Not to worry, I will still get a picture:)

Miss Priss catching some rays:)
