When your baby tries to eat your nose

It's no secret that this chunker is my new favorite thing to photograph. On good days, we'll have random photo shoots. She already loves the camera, and I'll share more of the shoot photos in a moment...

But first...

Let me show you the funny little sequence that happened when I decided to take a couple mommy/daughter selfies and Nicole decided that my nose looked yummy:

Nom nom nom. It was so funny! I love this little lady.  There's never a dull moment. She's been alive for a dozen weeks tomorrow!

And now, please enjoy some more BABY SPAM!!!! (I also finally figured out why most of my photos are/have been focused incorrectly... I'm figuring this camera out, slowly but surely!)

I know, I know. It's a lot of pictures. I had a really hard time narrowing it down.

Chocolate, My Love

If there is one thing in my life that I am pretty much addicted to, it's chocolate. I am completely and ardently in love with it. It's very unhealthy, as most addictions are.

So it's a pretty big deal that I've decided to participate in Lent this year and have given up chocolate in any and all forms. I've always been interested in Lent when my friends have done it, and love the intentions and meanings behind it, but I haven't ever joined in. This will be good for me. Not only will I feel strengthened by knowing that I can resist my cravings, it should also help a lot in my quest to lose the baby weight. It will also add a fresh element to the Easter season for me.

And of course, Doug came home with a pack of giant chocolate muffins from Costco the day after my fast started. Ooops.

On a different note, we had a good Valentine's Day! Flower bouquets, chocolates, a new candle, a little scavenger hunt that I put together for Doug, and we even got to escape for a little late lunch date while our brother-in-law watched Nicole. (Thanks Nick!) It was great to have a little baby-free time.

BTW, I'm already down a pound from when Lent started. You guys. I really do eat too much chocolate.

Flashback 4 Weeks

Okay, okay, I admit it. Nicole is almost all I ever talk about on the blog these days. There, my confession is on the table. Happy? Now, instead of talking about Nicole, let me show you a few of the pics from 4 weeks ago when Nicole helped model for Elizabeth.

Those eyebrows. They kill me.

It's crazy how 4 weeks can make such a huge difference in a baby this young. She was 7 weeks when these were taken and is now 11 weeks today... and she looks different, I swear! Ridiculous. Anyways, you can check out some of the other pics of Nicole here. That second to last picture is hilarious, I'm pretty sure it was taken as she was starting to yawn. Cutie.
