My mornings

Cute gap outfit, that is still too big on my skinny guy.

and my weekend was perfect. I had a couple hours to myself on Sunday and I kept it simple. I went to Trader Joes for pretty flowers and soap! :)

Am I ready for baby #2?

Friday, June 24, 2011
When I see things like this? I think YES I AM!!!! I can't wait until we have a baby girl. There are so many cute things out there for little girls, unfortunately that isn't the case for boys grrr.

In all honesty, we're not quite ready for baby #2 yet but I can at least start my must have list for when Leah comes (yes, I already know my future baby girl's name, hehe)

MY best shot

Thursday, June 23, 2011
I bought a canon rebel last summer because I wanted to take great photos of my child growing up, I am lucky that my friend Mary Kate, has been teaching me a lot and it is a really fun hobby to have.

I love Paper Mama's site, great inspiration to get you going if you are new to the photography world. Since I have been noticing that I am getting better & better, I thought I would enter one of her competitions, I thought eh why not?!

Here is my best shot of Aaron at his first birthday party! I love this shot, Aaron was trying to take his mask off & I took about 20 pictures of him in a 2-3 minute span trying to get just one good shot of his mask. I also unknowingly followed the rule of thirds. Great shot, huh?

Hope we win!

A Day in the Life of a Full Time Working Mama Pt. II

Wednesday, June 22, 2011
So yesterday I posted about what our weekday's look like, but I lied! I wish it went that smooth!!
My morning today went like this:

6:45: I wake up
6:50: Aaron wakes up
7:00: I leave Aaron on his chair while I go take a quick shower
7:05: Aaron sees the bathroom door open and gets excited, he comes in & starts dumping all his toys in the bath tub while I'm in the shower!
7:15: I don't have time to get his toys out of the shower, so I just go get ready.
7:55: Managed to get myself AAANND Aaron dressed! I get his diaper bag ready!
8:00: I try to leave the House but Thomas comes on and Aaron screams that I dared take Thomas away.
8:05: Turn the TV off and head out the door, get stuck in traffic. lovely. Drop Aaron of @ my mom's.
8:40: Arrive at metro station:
9:30: arrive to work, 30 minutes late. bahumbug!

I don't even remember if I turned out all the lights in my apartment when I left this morning! lol
