Going back in time

Has it been a whole week since we last chatted? My word.

I have been doing some major soul searching this past week. Nothing that a few tears and some good yoga can't cure, but Brynn continues to challenge Chad and I by the half hour. I will spare you the details. Luckily, it does not involve scissors. Also, Ky had roseola and was so miserable, I felt awful for him.

After several discussions with my board of trustees (a.k.a. my family & friends), consulting several parenting books, manuals, websites, and digging deep within myself to muster all the strength I have left; I am glad to say I have implemented a new parenting/discipline technique. One day in, so far so good. Dr. Dobson, let's hope you know what you are talking about when you speak of the "Strong Willed Child." Otherwise, I am calling Nanny 9-1-1.

Does this look like the face of a child that would give anyone trouble??

The good news is she is not moving out.

Brynn actually suggested that I take some photos of her this week. I had 2.2 minutes to do it, but I think I got some cute stuff. I will share the rest soon.

For now, I am happy to share some pics of baby Sophia (from my baby plan) who is already 9 months old. She is just a few weeks older than Kyler, so I have enjoyed tracking her development and comparing notes with her mom, Kristin.

Can you tell if this is baby Soph, or is it her long, lost ancestor?

We had a great time with this antique baby buggy from the 1850's. Believe it or not, Kristin's mom's great grandfather was pushed around town in this thing. That must be Sophie's Great-Great-Great Grandfather? Kristin's parents pulled it out of the attic and put it together for our session. It is in impeccable condition. Take that thing and put it on "Antique Roadshow."

Can you believe any baby survived this thing? Where are the straps/buckles? The cushions? There is actually one spindle missing in the back that Sophie almost fell through the hole on to her head. But it was worth this photo opp.

You know I love piggy toes.

Love how she crossed her little piggies all by herself.

Does somebody need a hug?

First ice cream Graham's...mmm.

Can't believe our next session will be to celebrate her first birthday!
