story time

The girls love story time with Darek. A few nights ago though, they were too tired to stay awake through the first book.

5 months

5 months – we finally got some smiles for these!

Sunday outing

January 13th, 2013

Last weekend we took the girls out for lunch for the first time with just us (no other adults around to help). It went well and they enjoyed watching us eat turkey burgers and sweet potato fries. Since they don’t wear many outfits, we snapped some pics.

Norah was all –

Since I haven’t had time to post any photos other than the monthly ones, here are their 3 month photos for anyone who hasn’t seen them on facebook. I had soooo many other ideas, but like every other year in my life for the past 6 years, all the personal things I wanted to do in the Fall took a backseat to my photography business stuff, and I ran out of time. In hindsight I should have taken on less, but who knew?

Plus, it’s dang hard to get 2 three-month old babies to cooperate for any amount of time…so I should just be thrilled with what I did get.

I lost some time too because I’d planned for tummy shots, but both girls decided it was a great day to learn how to roll over and nearly every time we put them on their tummies, they flipped immediately. So we spent a lot of time turning them over. Smart girls.


Olivia (aka “The One With More Hair”):

Olivia on the left & Norah on the right:

Norah (L) & Olivia (R):

Their first Converse:

Norah loves her fingers (side note: I think this was the last time I used my crate before I ran over it with my car….I’ve run into more things in the past 5 months than my entire driving life combined, including my teenage years…):


This is such a Norah expression:

N – L, O – R:


Norah (Olivia was being disagreeable so I didn’t get similar shots of her, booo):

There are more pics of Norah because Olivia turned into an unhappy camper very early on:

Another one of Olivia:

These were supposed to be group shots, but this time Norah wasn’t into it (it was the next day and I guess she thought one day of cooperating was enough):

Check out that lush grass! It’s what every homeowner aspires for, I know. I’ve always wondered what happened if you didn’t cut your grass for 6 months…and counting…

I cannot believe it’s time for their 6 month photos in less than a month!! Yikes! Time to start making more hats. 🙂
