slipping through my fingers

today the song, "slipping through my fingers" from the musical mama mia went through my mind as i watched my little one get on that bus...and then i tried really hard to swallow that huge lump that had formed in my throat. can it be? is my boy that i was just rocking and kissing his little nose goodnight really big enough for school? i didn't want G to see me cry {i didn't want her to be nervous for school} so i blinked back the tears and kissed my big boy goodbye for the day. he's not scared at all. he's more than excited to be at school. i'm sure going to miss that tender little soul around the house all day. although i'm not ready for my J to be in the real world, the real world desperately needs more J's.

a jump start on fall

so if you go to dream street papers there is a gallery with ideas for how to use my newest paper line: SAM. i love these cards that our design team created with the SAM line. {ps, you can "scraplift" them if you want...shhh! that's what they are there for...ideas!} all you have to do is go to A CHERRY ON TOP, and buy some...and then have fun creating. now i just need a little bit of time to create some cards myself...beautiful ladies!

lovin' the rolls

don't you wish this was still cute at 30?

so the other day i took pictures of this sweet baby girl. she belongs to one of my good friends. we had too much fun with ALL of her!!! i know my own super baby will soon follow in her babes tend to get very chunky and cute as well.

i just love taking pictures of babies. babes are really my favorite subject to shoot because every picture turns out great. babies look adorable with every little face they make.

where credit is due

so i've found a few things that i just LOVE lately with this new little super baby that has just come into my life. so i'd like to share so others can share the love!

1. the ERGO baby carrier: this thing has been a LIFESAVER for me!!! it's not cheap, but it's TOTALLY worth the mula. i used the Baby Bjorn for my other two babes, but my back always hurt, and my chunka lunka kids didn't fit in them for very long. the ERGO can hold kids up to 40lbs with little strain on your back. my little lover boy always wants to be carried, and this works great! it can be used as a sling for when babies are newborns (with the newborn insert). when they get bigger they can either straddle you from the front, or ride on your back like a backpack. there are even video clips showing how to use these fancy-schmancy slings. let me tell you how comfy it is on my shoulders, and my back never tires. thanks so much to my sweet friends who went in together and bought it for me and my new little boy. (nope, not a pic of my hubby & me...though it looks real nice!)

2. this fabulous binki clip from LIZZIE JANE BABY {my hubby's aunt & cousins' business). one day i received a package with this adorable binki clip and burp cloths. it was SO NICE of them and really made my day. {thanks ladies!} i LOVE them and always get comments on how cute super baby's binki clip is. i know they have hooded towels and other way cute things!

3. BARE MINERALS so don't make fun of me, but during my middle-of-the-night feedings i watch infomercials...i'm often very tempted to buy the things that are being sold and i enjoy seeing all the new products out there, but i rarely give in. i always sleep on it, and some how i always come to my senses in the morning and decide i really don't need scissors that can cut through a penny or a zapper machine that will make anyone's thighs look amazing...however, this make up really looked great and the price was right. i hate foundation and have never worn it, but i have pregnancy patches all over my face and really felt that i wanted a more even skin tone. like most infomercial products, this came with a money back guarantee, so i felt like i could give it a shot. i was talking about buying it and talked about it with my mother-in-law...and come to find out she uses it and loves it too...after her testimony and the very convincing infomercial, i bought it. i have to say that i love it and since i have worn it i get compliments on my make up...i love the way it feels and looks on my face and it isn't goopy and nasty like foundation. it is also 100% pure minerals, so you can sleep with it on and it won't hurt your skin. you can also buy it at sephora.
