I am lucky in so many ways. I took the weekend “off” and just hung out with my family doing nothing, watching basketball, playing, going for walks, blowing bubbles, reading books, bbqing-it was so nice. I get so busy so quickly these days that I forget so often to just sit still and enjoy what I DO Have. I mean, look at these kids, are they not the sweetest little beings you ever saw? Elijah has never once been frustrated or upset with Amelia. He has never resented her for taking SO much attention away from him her first 6 months of life bc she was so colicky. He just plays with her, loves her, entertains her, and is just as sweet when she starts screaming or crying over something. 4 1/2 years was a good separation between the two, although now, at 30, I think if I want more I should just do it sooner rather than later-it takes so much energy to have more than one child and I already get so worn out! Anyways, here are some shots from the weekend and of my sweet family.
Oh, and the best part-I can’t believe I almost forgot. We got to go on an actual DATE. It was fabulous. We dropped Elijah and Amelia off at a friend’s house in Lafayette, and wanted to stay close in case the baby was fussy, so we tried Kasbah, and it was fabulous (we rocked it;). I have never had Moroccan food before, and it was delicious-spicy and full of flavor. There were also some belly dancers, and the whole night was really entertaining. Anyhoo, that was my great weekend.
Oh, and if you all did not know and were curious about that fabulous baby sling my husband is wearing, that is my design! After Elijah was born I created a sling and now it is made in designer and organic maternials. You can see them at Karmababy.com or put one on your registry at Target.com. I will also be doing another shoot in a few weeks for Karma Baby and will be needing models, so if you want a free sling and some cute photos, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
