patiently waiting

I know some of you are getting frustrated with me not posting everyday this week..... Things are just getting a little crazy around here and our schedules have been flipped around a few times. 
No baby yet but shes definitely on her way and we are:

Well they are doing much better at it than I am.

Photoshoot with cute cousins

 I hung out with these three babies one evening. They are so full of energy and their mommies were worried we wouldn't get any good pictures. I wasn't feeling all that great and the kiddos were not wanting anything to do with my picture ideas. so I admit I was a little worried too but the one thing you have to remember when photographing little ones is just let them do what they want and keep shooting!!!!!

I think they turned out way better than I hoped for!

Free Bike wash!

Last week we drove by a youth group from a church in our neighborhood was hosting. Julia begged me to stop and let them clean our van. I agreed and pulled over. While we sat in our van watching the teens spray and scrub the dirt and bird poo of our windows I could see the Julia about to explode! "Ask them if you can help."
Julia jumped out of the van and picked up a sponge and got right to work!
The other Teens loved her and even held her up so she could reach the tops of the cars. We were there for at least a half hour! Julia washed 4 cars!
When we finally got home I started cooking lunch. Julia came into the kitchen and asked if she could please have a car wash at our house. I agreed but under one circumstance: Her free car wash poster had to be done in only pencil! (the people passing would not be able to read her sign)

                 I went out and told her that I think her Bike could use a good washing.
We filled up a tub full of water gave her a sponge and turned the hose on. She was out there for another half hour cleaning that bike!

 I do feel really bad about sabatoshing her car wash but I couldn't risk have a block full of cars pulling into my driveway! What  really matters is that she had fun, stayed busy, and now has a clean bike!

big sisters

I am  35 weeks pregnant with our third girl!
My girls are so excited about their new sister. I listened to them playing with their baby doll. Julia was teaching Belle how to wrap up the baby in a blanket and feed her and rock her. She said "Belle you have to practice for when the new baby gets here."
they wanted to make a present for their new sister to give to her when they finally get to meet her at the hospital.

 It's perfect and I know the new sister will love being wrapped up in her blanket that her big sisters made for her.

His perfect Father's day

For Father's day My husband wanted to spend it with his girls having fun! How sweet!
We went to Coney Island (the Cincinnati version)
They swam while mommmy sat in the shade and took pictures.

I am giving you permission to check out my hubby's behind in these first couple pics :P

 Julia is my dare devil! She has been jumping off the diving boards with no help since she was 3! I have a mini heart attack every time and secretly wish she could still wear arm floaties......
 She says "NO WAY MOM! I don't need them!"
 I think Miss Belle is going to be a lot like her sister! She LOVES the water!
 Except when daddy puts her under with no warning!!!!

 After they swam we walked over to the rides and Miss Belle was actually tall enough to ride a few. (more mini heart attacks for mommy!)
 But julia said she would keep her safe for me :)

 The next day we went to church and let daddy sleep in. after we got back they set up the slip-n-slide.

 I am just So proud of my in the air shot I captured!

Hope you had a great Weekend and all the great Fathers got to spend father's day in some special way.

Father's day


"I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father's protection."~ Sigmond Freud
