I have no good reason an excellent reason for being MIA for the past several weeks.... I have a baby! Wow, I'm still getting used to that one. So many days it seems like there should be plenty of time to write a quick post while Adelaide is napping, and there've been plenty of days when I look back on the past 12 hours wondering what exactly filled all of my time so completely. Either way, blogging just never seems to be at the top of the list. But, I'm still here and I still want to do this, so here I am, doing it... sparsely, but doing it none the less. 

I've been enjoying my summer immensely so far. Days with Adelaide that don't feel rushed, a very gratifying photography class that I only took at Jordan's suggestion (SO glad I followed that suggestion) and finally getting back to feeling like myself and happy over the past couple of weeks. Over the previous few months I could see myself becoming someone I did not want to be... discontented, negative, mad, mean... it was like I had a little big rain cloud following me around everywhere most days. And poor, poor Jordan, lightening struck the same place many, many times with the storm I was brewing. I don't know what the coming weeks, months, or years hold for me, but I do know that I don't want to go back where I was. One way or another, I know I have to find a way to find and keep fulfillment and happiness in my life, otherwise, how can I expect Adelaide find the same? Or expect to keep a husband for that matter!

On to some photos of what's been going on around here lately.

Adelaide turned 9 months old! At 8 months, she was finally sitting up pretty steadily and just starting to get from her tummy to sitting up. By 9 months, she had started crawling and pulling up! 

The hardest month of shooting yet. She had ZERO interest in lying on her back and I was lucky to get one shot of her sitting down before this:

And when I brought her back to sit down, I got this:

Can't you just read her thoughts? "Geez moooooom!"

Getting outside as much as the weather permits. And playing with depth of field for my photography homework.

Getting in some quality time with "Dada" whenever possible. He's been working 6-7 days a week for probably almost 2 months now. Yes, he's a keeper and yes, they are adorable.

And the piece de resistance. (Just pretend you love it, even if you don't. I paid dearly for this photo with over 100 chigger bites and 2 days of pure misery. Literally. Ask Jordan or my parents. They'll vouch for me.)

And on that note, I'm out. I will try not to be away for 2 months next time...
