A bit busy?!!!

Well, not quite as busy as my sister, but I got a small taste of what it might be like to have 4 kids.  The night Keri went into labor I had her three girls sleep over.  Later, I got the call that she was heading to the hospital.  My mom & my sister (who's a nurse) were both out of town which made Keri's husband a bit nervous because they had always done "that" with her, while he just loved her and held her hand for their previous three babies.  I was very excited but that made me a little nervous too because I hadn't ever done "that" role either (lived away for 10 yrs).  Fortunately, everything went wonderful.  Low key, laid back, ; ) hee, hee, no seriously, she didn't break a sweat and was all checked in minutes before midnight and the two sweet babes arrived at 3:30 a.m.  It was a pleasant experienced for all involved, even Keri.  She said she'd do it again!  ; )

We then jetted off to Texas a few days later and she brought them home while we were away.  Then my brother and his wife had their sweet little angel on St. Patrick's day,  the day we were flying home.  He arrived safely but not too excited to eat and they kept him in the NICU for a week.  I am just starting to get pictures of him & trying to match everyone's schedules is  hard.  

Two days after our trip to TX, I shot my first wedding of 2009.  It was beautiful and a great time.  It always makes me so nervous and excited at the same time that my stomach hurts.  Excited anxiety, I call it.  Since then, I haven't had a chance to sit still.  There are newborns everywhere.  They smell so yummy!  I can't wait to post their sweetness soon on my photography blog & website.  Not to mention families and grads already too!  I am having so much fun.  However, on a shoot yesterday a shotgun went off twice!!!  OK, we were trespassing.  I will elaborate on that story next post.  

My final big new is I finally have my own internet!!!  I have loved my laptop and the convenience and warmth that it gives to me.  Going to my mom's or my father in law's driveway (only late at night or just to quickly check email) was nice and welcoming, BUT there is nothing like surfing in your p.j.'s, bra-less and on your own couch, in case you fall asleep during your surf.  I think that is what is happening right now as my fingers are getting slower and my almost over the top, yet, out of my cave, description of internet access in my own home, is getting a little over done.  Maybe I should just stick to uploading pictures and keeping my word at a minimum (or at least post in daylight hours).
