Dramatic B&W

The theme this week at i♥faces is “Dramatic B&W”.  This is a photo of my 4-year-old son meeting his now 11-day-old little sister at the hospital.  He insisted we were having a girl my whole pregnancy, even though we didn’t know which we were having, and he loved her before he met her.  I love the look of love on his face.

You Capture – A Moment

This week’s “You Capture” theme at i should be folding laundry is “A Moment.”  One week ago today I had my beautiful new baby girl.  We knew she was coming, as it was a scheduled c-section, but we didn’t know she was a “she” as we wanted to keep that a surprise.  As soon as one of the doctors said they saw lots of hair, I just knew…both of my boys were completely bald.  Needless to say, we’ve had lots of moments in the last week…here are a few…

My husband took these two of her first moments…

You Capture - Hopeful

This week’s You Capture theme at i should be folding laundry is “Hopeful”.  I’m hopeful for so many things right now…2 weeks from today I’ll be having our third baby, so I’m hopeful for a safe delivery and healthy babe (didn’t get around to any belly pictures this week though, darn it!)  Here are some other “Hopeful” subjects for me:

Brothers…I hope they’ll always love each other this much…

003_edited-1 …and that the oldest will always be patient enough to listen to his little brother…009 This shot is pretty boring, but a couple days ago this was solid white, so the mud makes me hopeful for spring…012The oldest gets to play outside again…something I’ve really been hoping for!014  Meanwhile the youngest, who’s had the croup all week, is hopeful he’ll get to go outside soon too…(don’t mind the dirty window…the cats won’t leave it alone!)016 Here’s our dog, Joe, hopeful for some attention…(he got it a few minutes later when my son pretended his ears were wings and flapped them up and down…Joe’s a really good dog!)018 The cats, hopeful the oldest will feed them when I’m not looking…021…and this one hopeful the youngest will let her in (sorry kitty!)023  Another one of Joe…no snow in sight and the fact that he is laying outside instead of in his beloved insulated doghouse makes me hopeful for spring too!026 And finally, we got new gravel on our driveway today, so I’m hopeful my van will stay a little cleaner now!  The oldest decided he’d start spreading it around before Daddy came home ;-)024
