the day my ovaries burst

Monday, March 31, 2014

Saturday Grahm and I decided to take our now two-month-old (whale face) nugget out for her very own photo shoot. (Never mind that her new favorite thing is blowing spit bubbles.) Grahm's latest obsession is photography, so we thought it'd be wise to finally use all that expensive fabulous camera gear we have around the house. I mean, we only have 3,000 pictures of Sawyer Marie. Obviously, we need more.

Now there's not much this born-and-raised Okie gal likes about living in the land of burnt orange, longhorns, and cowboy boots. But Texas, I've got to hand it to your beautiful fields of bluebonnets. You win. They're more lovely than a dozen jelly-filled donuts.

We found a little church near our house that had lots and lots of bluebonnets. Sawyer was an angel baby and worked the camera like a pro. (I tried to tell her that she has little chance of making it past her mamma's 5-foot stature, so not to get visions of runways in her head.)
Sometimes I can't believe she's really mine.
As my friend Kaysie puts it, my ovaries just burst.
"Boob. Stat."
I'm sure I said something truly hilarious.
The best a tripod and a self-timer could do to capture our little family. I'll take it.
She has my whole heart. Every stinkin' piece.
Oh hey there, blue eyes.
Her little toes just kill me. Kill me dead.
I think Grahm did a phenomenal job taking these photographs. It's kind of annoying, actually. One of these days I'll find something I can beat him at besides pounding a gallon of ice cream. Until then I'm stuck trying to figure out what in the world aperture means.

Oh wow! She is so beautiful. You have such a wonderful little family - and holy moly that husband is mad skilled with a camera! Good deal. :) (That "I can't believe she's mine." Right?!

Absolutely adorable photos.

So... I used to follow you under "The Park Ave. Pub" blog, and now I have a new one -- fromcubicletokitchen.blogspot.com. Long story short, I left the corporate world to be a waitress, and this blog is most of the result. Sorry for the plug.

In the transition, though, I've kept up with your posts, and wow! What a life change. :)
