We have a couple great shoots up our sleeve to show you over the next week (teasers below) but we thought we would interrupt this incredibly interesting blog to show you just how adorable our kids are again. Yeah for us! Yeah for us having adorable spawn!
As a stay at home mom I find that I need to get really creative to occupy the minds and energy levels of a 16 month old and a 34 month old. Bennett has recently started to have an attention span larger than a gnats which thrills me to no end! We have finally started a “craft time” that includes him. I use the term “craft” loosely because that word seems to insinuate glue and pom poms. Not so much. I think of our time as a 30 minute artistic expression time killer. Chloe gets to do some cool crafts with finger paints, glue or even homemade oobleck. Bennett gets to sit in his high chair with a HUGE piece of paper, a few crayons and then I stick stickers all over his face and arms which takes him a long time to peel off and put on his paper. Everybody is a winner. They get to craft and I get to laugh at their adorableness.
Chloe wanted in on the sticker action.
Look at his crazy snaggle-tooth.
Don’t let his cuteness fool you. Leave him alone for a minute and disaster! He dumped an entire tub of the most amazing cheese dip ever…ON HIS HEAD, down our computer chair, down my painting, into a pile of cheesy sadness on the floor. I don’t know if I was more sad at the mess or that he wasted the entire tub of Gordo’s cheese dip!
Stole this idea from our friends, the Nickersons. Ingenious idea, the fan tent!
Now a little looky loo into what’s on the docket.
My brother and sister-in-law finally cashed in on their Christmas present from a couple years ago…so we will just call this a 6th year anniversary shoot for them!
Katherine and Mark hung out with us Sunday evening for a fun engagement shoot at Shockoe Slip and Maymont Park in Richmond, VA.
