Where is your family photographer when you need her?! So realizing we had no family pictures since Madi was born, I had to recruit someone else to take a picture of our family. (My Mom) How do photographers make it look so easy to capture the personality and character of each family member, in one picture, and make it a good picture. Well, this was my lame attempt, at least I tried!
So when you are the one behind the camera all the time it's seemingly impossible to appear in the pictures. Last week I came to the very sad realization that I didn't have any pictures of just me and Madi or even me, Madi and Ada. So Jim has become my fill in camera man. When I see time has gone by and I am been out of the pictures for too long, he has agreed to step in and take some pictures. What a great husband.
If you have not heard of the Signing Time series by Rachel Coleman...it's worth taking a look. This is a few of many signs that Ada has learned. (Frog, pig, and tree) Today I signed "Do you want mommy to help you?" Ada's response was "uh huhhhhhh!" She knew exactly what I signed and she REALLY wanted me to help her get her juice out of the fridge. Ada is definitely at that stage in life where she soaks everything up like the newest and improved sponge on the market.
As Madi gets bigger and more mobile and interactive I realize how close in age they look and actual are. Thinking about having two under the age of two used to frigthen me, now it's reality. If you know me at all you know that I live by a schedule. It is my sanity, without it I would be frantic. Having two napping girls from 1:00-3:30 used to seem impossible, but I am proud and very thankful to say it can be done.
