This picture just makes me so happy!  I can still hear his belly laugh and the motor boat sounds he was making while "surfing".  We have about 100 pictures of him doing this from the week, but even if there wasn't a single one, I will always remember this moment. 

Family Pics on the Beach

I had been planning on getting familly pictures on the beach since we booked our vacation.  I thought out exactly what I wanted the boys to wear and started scooping out good spots by our house the moment we got there.  BUT, I'm pregnant and therefore, can barely remember where I parked my car most days.  I completely forgot to pack something other than tshirts and shorts for me so I had to go to Target the night before and search for something that would work, fun times when your pregnant. Then of course Finn was tired from a long day on the beach and not the most cooperative.I think he screamed and cried 90% of the time that we shooting.  We took approxiamately 350 pictures to get these 20 or so good ones.  And we waited until Thursday to take them so there wasn't alot of time for make ups, since we knew that on Friday we would want to stay on the beach soaking up our last few hours of vacation.
Even with all of that, I think they turned out awesome.  Now I just have to choose which ones to frame!  Suggestions?
 Love these two!

 He was pretty much only happy when running away from us, haha!

 Trying to trick the boy into thinking he's having a good time.
 The next three are my favorites for a big one, but I can't decided which I like best.

 love Finn's serious face.

 "What? You don't want me to lay down and roll around in the sand?"


Lulu's 2012

Finn's 2nd time at Lulu's and Baby Girl's 1st time in September 2012.  Finn is 16 months and I'm 22 weeks pregnant in this picture.
 Finn's 1st time to Lulu's, back in September 2010. I was about 8 weeks pregnant.
 We didn't make it to the beach in 2011, but hopefully we will be there next year with Finn and BG and we will have another picture to add to our collection.

22 Weeks

I can't believe how fast time is flying by!  It seems like yesterday I was at my first doctors appointment and now we are already over half way to meeting our baby girl!  This picture was taken last week at the beach when I was 22 weeks.  I am going to try and get weekly pictures from here on like I did with Finn, but I can't make any promises.  Poor baby is already suffering from "second child" syndrome.
And just for fun, here I am at 22 weeks with Finn.
The belly is bigger this time around, but everything else is smaller.  Especially the face, ha!  I still weigh less than I did when I got pregnant with Finn, but pretty sure I'll surpass that this week. :-)

Vacation Video

I swear I'm going to post some pics from our amazing beach vacation last week, but until I have time, here is a little video of our surfer boy!
