Where did March go?

I guess the month passes quickly when you're insanely busy.

I just finished a big order that was taking up a lot of my time
and even though it's 1am and I'm pretty sure I lost all feeling on the tip of my thumb
and right index finger, I'm super stoked to be done.

I'm sure I'll be catching up on missed blog opportunities
(like Charlie turning 18 months)
but I thought I'd post a few photos from today's photo shoot.

and I just have to mention that it is INCREDIBLY difficult
to take photos of my kids. 

Today was the first day of sun in quite some time, and I was banking
on the fact that wasn't lying about it as I had 
to get some product shots done for this order. 

I took over 500 pictures and scored a mere handful
(as in a toddler sized handful. waste of time, I tell you!)

but here are a few that made me smile - for various reasons.

My sweet boy. He's looking so old.
(and his pants are looking so short)

This is how the shoot mostly went.

pretty soon she'll realize that he's stronger than she is.

 but right now she still thinks it's funny.

 bad product shot. but I still love this for some reason.

I was having the kids walk towards me and then I'd yell, 'STOP'
which I quickly learned would result in very un-natural poses.

they're just running around - but I LOVE how this caputred
them having fun TOGETHER.

what cracks me up about this photo, is that Charlie is cracking up over
something random ... and in a different direction ...

what you see:
a cute photo of the kiddos

what I see:
Stop sign coming out of Charlie's head w/ the street sign attached
random bruises on Claire's legs
Bloom is positioned on the 'wrong' side of her head
or Claire needs to be standing on the other side of Charlie
 and looking in the opposite direction
Charlie's pants are still too short

but regardless, I like looking at these photos. 
and maybe I'll get a few more, as the Sun should be shining for the next week!

Guess Who's Smiling For The Camera?!

well, well, well

look who is giving out free smiles

the other morning Charlie was in a super good mood

and when I pulled out the camera, it didn't phase him in the slightest

 which made me super happy that I got to catch some smiles on film
(or memory card ... or whatever)

maybe it was because he was wearing his Korean Jammies.

(it's crazy to think he was wearing those bad boys underneath
his Heineken jeans when I first met him!)
