Topics Galore!

First I would like to start out by saying Marlee has hit a clingy stage. I didn't think at 4 months this would be possible (but what do I, a first time mom, really know??) If I put her down she cries. It's not the "I'm hurting" cry or the "I'm really hungry" cry. It's an absolutely pathetic whiney cry that B-R-E-A-K-S my heart! It makes me feel great that she wants to be so close to me, but I can't get a thing done! And believe me, I have a lot to get done around this house.

Every morning we wake up around 8:20, it's been this way for a few weeks now. She has her first bottle and then we spend a few hours in my bed watching T.V and snuggling. I decided today was carrot day. We've knocked out sweet potatoes (like), green beans (semi-like), peas (like), butternut squash (really like), peaches (dislike), apple sauce (semi-like), and bananas (omg she can't get enough). I never know how she will react. The week that we tried butternut squash she really didn't know what to think at first. By day two, she loved them. So this morning I was hoping she'd take a liking to carrots. WRONG, very very wrong. She hates them. The face she made after the first bite said it all. But when I gave her a second bite, she cried. She wanted nothing to do with it. So I gave her some cereal and a bottle. Once she was done I figured we would give them another shot. She wasn't having ANY OF IT. She threw a fit! Tomorrow we'll try again, maybe she'll warm up to them. If not, I'll just have to keep trying!

I've made a few new bows lately in my free time! Two of which I custom made for a friend (AND SOLD!).

I also took pictures for a friend on Saturday. Stacey is graduating this year and needed senior pictures. What a perfect way to build my portfolio! We went to the Grapevine Botanical Gardens, which were absolutely gorgeous. It's small but beauitful, a very good choice thanks to Nikki from Everlasting Expressions Photography! It was a lot of fun, and with out further ado, here are a few shots that I got that day.
