My Daughter is having a sleep over tonight with her best friend of 7 months. She moved in next door to us a month after we moved on base and were instant friends. Tomorrow is going to be a sad day for them, they are having to say good-bye. As much as we enjoy our military life, this is one of the things that never get easier.

Today is one of those in Photography, well actually one of those weeks. I have felt uninspired and like I am traveling backwards on the learning curve. Earlier in the week I set out to do shots of friends. I came home and felt my shots were not up to par with what she was looking for (Luckily I am not in business just probono to learn). I am blaming poor lighting choices on my part and I am looking forward to trying again. Today I set out to create some nice shots for my husband for Father's Day on Father's Day. My shots were all blown out, blurry and just dreary! I am having a brain lapse and can't figure out if it is light, camera settings, operator error. I feel like all I have learned and studied has been washed down the drain. As much as I am not liking the feeling of inadequate~ness, I am hoping that even professionals still have bad days. I love taking photos and I know we are not all perfect all the time. I am going to continue to practice and play and love it, even on my bad uninspiring days.
On a note of progress, I did create my first storyboard and I love it. Learning to love it all...

So far the last few weeks I have been in baby fever, baby envy whatever you call I have caught it. It might be spurred by my sister having her next one, hearing of friends expecting, holding little gorgeous babies (like the one above) and the realization that unless my husband has yet another procedure we will not have another.
It isn't healthy, I don't want one I have to give back when I am done.
I do so LOVE the ones I have but as soon as my youngest is out of diapers, I am out of baby anything. I love and miss being one who is depended upon for just about everything.
Even writing this is not proving to be theraputic.
I am not a crazy woman, I just love babies.
Here is to more growth and baby-ing my babies until they are sick of me. I love you my babies.
Thank you, Lisa, for letting me borrow you beautiful baby today!

The twins finally got big kid beds. Being overseas is a challange when shopping for furniture, but I found what I wanted and had to wait for it to make it's journey across the Atlantic. It finally arrived and was delivered to the house today. I am not sure if I was all that big of a help, but I tried to get a jump start on the building process. After re-doing only a couple of little parts, friends of ours helped me get it all set up for the Big Kids. Thank you to Sergio and Lisa for being Awesome and helping me out.
