Week 14

Week 14

Week 14-2

It is so nice living in town where you can easily walk to three different playgrounds and parks. This one is at the elementary school where Liam will some day attend.

Week 14-5

“Hello Mommy!” This little girl lights up when I take her picture. I do believe she will be like her brother who has unintentionally been conditioned to smile every time I bring out my camera.

Week 14-1

I spied this scene from the top of a six foot ladder. 😉

Week 14-3

We sure love when Mema and Popa Hughes comes to visit us from Indianapolis!

Week 14-4

Liam is so blessed to have such an amazing extended family that love him just as much as his Mommy and Daddy. This special gift that he is opening is a book of photos of every member in his family including their names. With four grandparents, eleven aunts and uncles, and five cousins across three states, it’s hard to keep everyone straight (not including his six great-grandparents!). So I put together this book for him to remember. Happy 3rd Birthday Liam!

Week 14-6

The best part of birthdays are the days after where non stop play occurs with all the new toys! I found it amusing that Liam knew exactly what to do with the scalpel knife. He tried to cut the bear’s ear and arm. Thank goodness it’s plastic. Also, I think we will be restricting his choice of patients to only include stuffed animals (and not his sister).

Week 13-3

Our next door neighbor has been having some yard work done. He had a tree service come and cut down a few trees and then grind the stumps. This of course is awesome entertainment when you are two (or twenty-eight 😉 ).

Week 13-5

I’m pretty sure that this day I took Liam to the water park at the Massillion Recreation Center was the best day of 2015 for him thus far. We invited one of his little friends to come with us and he played from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm, with a short break for lunch. Even after six hours of swimming I had a hard time convincing him to leave.

Week 13-1

Week 13-6

This cute little duck pond is directly behind our Dairy Queen here in Louisville. On March 16th we took advantage of free ice cream cone day and also fed the ducks. The best part of that outing was when first seeing the geese and ducks Liam excitedly ran up to the pond waving and yelling. “Hi ducks!”

Week 13-2

This little boy will put up with any weather just for a chance to play outside!

Week 13-4

Having a little boy has made me so appreciative of such little joys in life. Playing in the sandbox is one of them. This has been one of his most favorite past time activities. So every year when it is finally warm enough to remove the treasured sandbox’s turtle lid, there is so much excitement!

John and Alli Kelly – McKinley Park, Canton, OH

Allow me to introduce this cute couple John and Alli Kelly; along with their hairy son Roscoe. John and Alli were married four years ago in Hawaii where John was stationed in the Army. Alli is actually my cousin on my dad’s side of the family. And since I wasn’t able to give them a wedding present, I offered four years ago that when they visit Ohio I would gift them a session. Well, that time has come! They were so lucky to have this beautiful Ohio morning. March weather is very unpredictable. It was so much fun photographing a couple who are married and were comfortable in front of the camera. It was also nice that I was able to give them these portraits which commemorate such a fun time in their newly wed life!

The Kracker Family Child Photography Session, Louisville, OH

These little beauties are Emmy and Allie Mae Kracker. I could not believe the adorableness from these two! Seriously, Allie Mae’s cheeks are absolutely precious!  They are such sweet little girls too. It was so much fun photographing them.  Nick and Megan Kracker should be very proud!

Week 12

Week elevan

Week 11-12-12

Liam in his favorite room in the house: the bathroom. So much mischief to be had!

Week 11-12-9

This is my sweet friend Laura. We met a year and a half ago and discovered we had so many things in common. The biggest being our children are the same ages and love to play together. She is also the owner of the Wholesome Hive which features handmade all natural body and home care products and raw honey. If you’d like to check it out the website: http://www.thewholesomehive.com/

Week 11-12-10

This day was usually foggy and cold. But we needed an opportunity to try out Liam’s new rain boots.

Week 11-12-7

I went to go kiss Liam good night and found these two. Note the convenient little peep holes Liam created for himself in his shade.

Week 11-12-1-2

Week 11-12-11

Fun in the sunshine with Aunt Marissa!

Week 11

Week 12

Week 11-12-1

Liam and I have a Saturday morning ritual of making waffles together. He starts requesting waffles midweek and then every morning until finally Saturday arrives. Not pancakes, not french toast, not crepes, just waffles. He is a boy after his mother’s heart!

Week 11-12-3

Week 11-12-6

Charlotte and Zane were conceived two weeks apart, but were born two months apart. You can barely tell now they are about the same size!

Week 11-12-2

This is one of Liam’s rare, gentler moments with his Aunt Michaiah’s hamster Guinevere.

Week 11-12-5

Pink Starfish

Week 11-12-8

This incredible structure is the tree house we always hoped for as children but did not come about until there were grandchildren. :-) Inside this impressive Swiss Family Robinson styled tree house are two levels, a main floor and a loft. Plans have already been made for Adam, Liam and my brother Isaac to camp out sometime this summer. Liam sure is blessed to have such a talented Grandpa!

Week Ten

Week 10

Week 10-1-2

This little one has a newly discovered love for books. This one in particular, which was also a favorite of her brother’s at that age.

Week 10-4

I was outside taking pictures of the house lit up after yet another snow storm when I saw this scene. They were watching their crazy Mommy outside!

Week 10-1

Somehow the cold does not affect Liam. He would sled ride all day if we would let him!

Week 10-5

This lovely group of ladies are part of our Tuesday morning Mom’s Group. It is so refreshing to connect and study together every week.

Week 10-2

I was going to attempt to replace a piece of hardware in our computer tower. But my brother-in-law advised against it and offered to do it for me in return for dinner (no argument there). He is so patient and kind to his niece and nephews. Liam loves his “Uncle Annew (Andrew)”.

Week 10-3

This bearded stud and I had the privilege of attending a marriage retreat together this past weekend. We had a wonderful time hanging out without the kiddos and also with our friends. And we even learned a little ballroom dancing!
