3 weeks down...

You know when you go to the store with your kiddos and someone inevitably says "You've got your hands full." Well, I can finally answer truthfully that YES, I do have my hands full. I remember it being a little overwhelming with the first 3 little ones at home but (for real) this time I have my hands full!! It is very busy trying to keep up with the older ones' activities and the younger ones' needs and John's schedule and calling! I am pretty sure we'll make it but John and I agreed to not talk about any more children for at least 2 years and decide then.

We have had lots of wonderful moments over the last 3 weeks. Little girls really are the most precious. It is hard to believe how much a little person can be loved in just 3 weeks. She is adored and adorable!!

These are some pictures that were done by my SILM. That's what we call her at our house because it is too long to say my sister-in-law's mother (her dad is SILF :). When Baby Bep was 2 weeks old my sister-in-law and I went out to my SILM's studio Idlewild (check is out HERE) for our shoot. Our husbands only called us twice :) There were so many darling pictures. These are some of my favorite.
PS - to the Anne of GG fans...are you not just enchanted with the name of the studio!!





These 3 weeks also brought an end to Josh's Reflection contest. He entered the photography section with the theme "diversity means..." This was his project. He took all the pictures and did the editing and decided how to put it together. He had to write an essay and talk about the meaning of his work. This isn't the finished product. The background actually turned out green with the title above it called Apples Together. I only have this version on my computer though. He ended up winning and is now moving onto the regional competition.

Oh my goodness...she is so adorable! What beautiful pictures! When people tell me I have my hands full I usually say that I am so lucky to have such great kids. I am sure you feel that way too, especially with a girl that cute!

I love how those pictures really focus on the beauty of little Elizabeth. The plain onsie and simple props. I tried to do a couple mimicking that style with Imoen well... Zoey and I died laughing with our results.

Melissa, she is beautiful!! What fun pictures, (and I do love the studio name!) I was so sad when we only stayed a day in Utah a month ago - I really wanted to come by but our week turned into a day with closing deadlines for our new house. I'll have to make a trip in the sring - I can't miss seeing a baby Prince girl!!
