JUST PICTURES...

I have been shooting Tate with my purse size point and shoot since I first met her. I have noticed lately MOST of my shots have been out of focus. I am thinking it is because Tate is always in motion.... I am now shooting with my Canon Rebel... it seems to catch the action much better.

My life has been more than HECTIC the last two weeks.... Because of family members being on vacation, we postponed Tate's 1st birthday to Monday August 17 (hey, she doesn't know the difference!).... I cannot wait to see Tate attack her cake with all her Tate-exuberance. She is such a delightful personality!


I love Tate's hair like this... ahhhhh, the bedhead!!!

This is the face that greets me when I walk into the room....

It has been cold around here lately.... I have the hardest time keeping socks on Tate's feet. She seems to think that toes should be bare. Even if they are frozen toes.... I was able to sneak these piggie slippers on her feet while she was "jumping". The minute she was out of her jumper, she had those piggies OFF.

How cute are these piggie slippers on my girl???

I am loving these photos! Do you think Tate can share some of that beautiful hair with Emma?!!! I also have a birthday present for Miss Tate. I meant to send it out this weekend and never made it to the post office. Sorry it's going to be to late for the party!

Adorable!! And oh my gosh, something is up with my Bloglines. I've been wondering why you haven't posted lately (figured you were just busy being a new mama and didn't give it a second thought) and all of a sudden today Bloglines gives me TONS of posts you've done. No way!! Can't believe I missed the mama and me photoshoot -- so gorgeous!!!
