Can You Believe that Reese Madelyn is 7 months??

Got to spend a few hours with Reesie today yesterday (after midnight) while Sandy worked and James was playing softball in 94 degree weather. Insane if you ask me. When I was 15 and playing softball sure, but not now! Sooo, since I did get that nice new camera, and since I am still kind of learning it, and since Reese did turn 7 months this week I decided to take a few pictues.
Reese woke up babbling to herself, all happy smiles. If you know her, you know this doesn’t always happen, but today it did and I took full advantage. We took some pictures Friday evening in mom and dad’s backyard. I don’t really like them though. They are a little underexposed. I’ve been playing with them some, and am just not satisfied. Saturdays pictures i LOVE! I decided to get up close and personal. You know how I love individual baby parts. So, here are a few. Off to Springfield in the morning to visit James’ grandma and aunt with the whole fam. Hope Reesie is in a traveling mood:)

JUNE 19, 2010 1st Swim meet

Here are the first pictures from the new camera. Today was the first swim meet at Turtle Run. It was very sunny and very warm. The girls did great. James and Reese joined Sandy, Mom, Brittany, and me in the cheering section towards the middle of the meet. Baby needs her beauty sleep. She was in a really good mood despite having a cold this week. She also started crawling this week! Most of the time she goes backwards, but hey moving is moving. Here are a couple shots from the day.


Paige gets ready for the backstroke. She ALWAYS knows where the camera is :)

O.K. Back in business. New camera has arrived and if the rain will let up for a couple of hours and let the sun shine thru, I’ll get out there and actually use it.

I’m very excited, but still reading up on it. Peyton, Paige, Reese – BEWARE. Aunt Jame needs to practice and you know what that means right? You guessed it, gonna need some models ;)

Here are some pictures I took with the Sony before the Canon came in. I really do like that camera. It is very handy and has a great zoom, and there aren’t a ton of lenses to lug around. But, I like to have a little more control. So, Canon T1i, nice to meet you.
