When my sister, Andrea, told me that she was coming to town in March, I knew I wanted to have her take our last set of maternity pictures. She has always been a good photographer, but she has been spending lots of time working on her skills the past few years as well as getting tons more experience. I'm so proud of how good she has gotten, and it still amazes me that she is able to get some of the shots that she does.
We went to the Wetlands on a Sunday evening. It was Daylight Savings Time, so we got there an hour earlier that our planned sunset session. Clouds just happened to roll in that afternoon, so the lighting was perfect anyways.
What wasn't perfect? My kids. Grace had gone to a birthday party sleepover the night before where, apparently, she didn't get much sleep. We also had brunch with Isaac's mom that morning, so she wasn't able to nap, and girlfriend was SO cranky. Going through the pictures, it was hard to find one with her smiling. Charley, on the …
Isaac took the girls to Grace's practice Monday night, so I ate ice cream in bed while watching The Real Housewives.
At practice, Char and Perry kicked the ball all over the field.
Gracie worked on her goal kicks.
Tuesday was Charley's turn for practice, and Grace and Perry kicked their balls around before taking a break. Perry loves to do everything her big sisters do, so she sat on her ball after watching Grace sit on hers.
Charley fell at school Monday, and I finally got a good picture of her face. I asked her if her hands were tied behind her back or why didn't she use them to catch herself. She said, "well, I didn't want to hurt my hands". This girl is something else.
Perry kept telling me that she was going to be bigger soon and go to Grace and Charley's school.
Char had her field trip to the Smith Center, but she wasn't impressed and thought the orchestra show was too long.
I made the best turkey meatball vegetable soup on Sunday, and I couldn't wait to eat it for lunch at work Monday. It's so delicious!
The girls did homework after school.
I could tell Perry wasn't feeling great on Tuesday when she just wanted to snuggle and fell asleep on the couch after school.
She kept waking up all throughout the night with coughing attacks and threw up from gagging a time or two.
Char's class got to hang with policemen and the FBI during career week at school.
We went to Grandpa and Grandma Espejo's for dinner to celebrate Daddy's birthday.
Grace stole his hat and took silly pictures of herself on my phone.
Char noticed that her loose tooth was super wiggly and was afraid it was going to fall out while she slept that night. She didn't want Daddy to pull it, so she played with it for a while. When she finally got it out, she just walked in and said nonchalantly, "I got it guys". …
