So I got a new pillow  and a couple new rugs from Ikea and I've been wanting to play around with them so I had a moment to take some photos of the boys. I sure hope the boys don't get sick of me taking their photos. I think if I play around with editing I could make the colors pop a little more but as you know I don't like editing. I really like how some of them turned out. :)

I had Mark take some photos of the boys and I yesterday before we went to Home Depot. I'm always behind the camera and I never have any photos of myself. He did a great job. I set the camera up with the settings I wanted and he took some great angels. I sure love my boys (all of them). Thanks hubby!! 

These are once again unedited, I'm just not good with that yet (and I like they way they are). Some day I hope to take a class on editing. 

Oh, a side note. Today Weston tried to feed Tanner a bite of his chocolate pudding. He said, "Baby Tanner likes chocolate pudding." Sure enough Tanner had a little tiny bit of pudding on his nose and lip. Too cute, but no pudding for Tanner yet.

Baby Model Tanner

Okay, I'm hoping I do this correctly. Tanner was our baby model (at 2 weeks old) for a photography class I took from Sarah Goodman. I LOVE her work and have learned a lot from her. She took Weston's 3 month photos and ever since then I've looked at photography in a whole new light. I'm learning what I like and dislike in photography and enjoying my new hobby very much.

Here is a slideshow Sarah created. Enjoy the photos of sweet baby Tanner (I can't believe he is already 2 months old. Time flies.)

Tummy Time with T

Antonio and Pam Parron (& family) gave us the cutest tummy time mat that looks like a picnic blanket. So Tanner has been enjoying some Tummy and Back (kicking) time. 

Daddy and Mad Dog Tanner

Here are some pictures of Mark and Mad Dog Tanner (his nickname from Uncle Mike from a Back to the Future movie). Marks smile is contagious and Tanner LOVES his daddy!!

Funny Faces

So when ever I take out the camera (which isn't enough these days) Weston wants to be the center of attention. So yesterday we took funny faces photos. 


Tanner has been smiling for a couple weeks. I just finally got a couple pictures of him. I LOVE baby smiles (and giggles). I think my boys all have great smiles. 

My Helper

So yesterday Weston asked me if he could hold baby Tanner. Since Tanner is a little to heavy for Weston to hold we decided to do a feeding on the couch. Weston is cute with Tanner. He loves making him smile. Whenever Tanner starts crying Weston is there talking to him, giving him a bottle, finding him a toy, or sticking a pacifier in his mouth. I like how he comes and tells me "Mom, Tanner is crying.", like I don't hear him. :)  I'm proud of my three year old for welcoming his little brother into our family with his whole heart. He has not shown any signs of jealousy, angry, or meanness towards Tanner. He's my great little helper.

Here are some pictures taken late on the 4th of July. As you can see Weston enjoyed a popsicle earlier that day. We went to church that evening and enjoyed a pot luck dinner with the members of our service. Then we headed home and walked down the street from our neighborhood to watch the fireworks from Schnepf Farms. Weston seemed to enjoy them. He said we wanted to do that (set them off), I think I may have a pyrotechnic on my hands. Tanner sported his Glory G (gDiaper) all day and they wore matching shirts I made for them (silly I know). Tanner is now 2 months old and getting so big already. He is very alert and he neck is getting stronger each day. He has started smiling and talking to us, it's the cutest thing.Tanner is also sleeping well at night with only one wake up at 2:30am. Weston still loves his baby brother VERY much and helps as much as he can!! I can't wait for the day when they can play together. We hope you all had a very Happy 4th of July!!
