Bummed....Back to Work

Well, today is my last day off from my maternity leave. Tomorrow morning we will all be getting up early to try to get out the door and off to the various places we will be going. I have been off work for 13 weeks now and I have enjoyed it immensely. It hasn't been easy (in fact, with 2 kids, it has been downright hard at times), but I have enjoyed this special time with my guy and gal.

The Lord blesses us with a beautiful day today and I took Ava and Harrison out to savor a little of that sunshine before the cold hits again. This was Harrison's first time outdoors (except for in transit), and I do have to say that he wasn't a huge fan. True, he was fussy since Ava took so long deciding what to wear to go out, and he was getting hungry, so hopefully next time will be better.

I took a few pictures and I have to say that it is REALLY awkward trying to use my big camera to take a picture of a baby that you are holding while holding the camera. I did the best I could and I LOVE these pictures of Harrison. They really highlight his baby chubs. The scratch on his eyebrow is courtesy of big sis who tried to read him a book really close up and the ones on his cheeks are from his little fingernails.

My two precious babies who I am now entrusting to Nana and hoping she survives.... ;)

    I LOVE LOVE these pictures. Ava looks so cute in her pink coat and that adorable smile! And HARRISON is TOO CUTE. LOVE LOVE THOSE CHEEKS! Can't wait to see him (them) again. He has changed so much since Christmas. Ava do a fabulous job tonight delivering the "Crown to the Princess".
    Love you All LOTS,
    Aunt Bethany
