The girl is good.

I have a confession. I'm a photo junkie. I love having pictures of my kids. So, when I found out that Avery was going to be in town, I had to have her come and take our pictures. She used to be based out of GA, but has moved to Dallas, Texas. Thank goodness, she still travels back here to do some sessions. She is the best! She is so down to earth, and my whole family loves her. I think Jackson has a little crush, too! Check out her blog at!

6 months & Happy Sarah

6 months old. Please take a moment to reflect upon that. My baby boy is growing too quickly!!! If I could slow time down, I would. Every week he has a new trick. Here he is for the first time in the swing. He LOVED it. I think Ace is going to be my little wild man. If you look closely, you can see his 2 bottom teeth. My baby shouldn't be old enough for teeth! 6 months is such a magical age.

Brotherly Love.

Ace is very stable sitting up now. He loves his new view of the world!

My chubby little boy. Love it!

And yes, I am Happy Sarah. Today is not only Ace's 6 month birthday, it's my 26th birthday. Yup, I'm now on the down hill slope of my 20's. Closer to 30 than 20. Kyle made me a birthday cake, and just put "Happy Sarah". Ha! He said that the middle of the cake had a huge crack in it, so he was scared to put "birthday" in the middle. Classic Kyle. This was the first cake he's ever made, and I think it is just precious!

Kyle totally surprised me with something I've been wanting for a while! A new camera to take better pictures of my sweet babes! I'm still learning a lot about the camera, but even on the automatic setting, it takes amazing pictures! Thanks Kyle!

Strep throat is just the way I want to celebrate the 4th!

Hey y'all. Sick, Strep throat Sarah here. That's right! I was lucky enough to get strep throat this week. Yay!

I've decided that getting sick during the summer should be against the law. It is just pure torture. It's bad enough being sick, but when it is so nice outside it just makes it horrible! Oh well.

My throat started feeling "off" on Tuesday night. On Wednesday it started progressively getting worse. So first thing Thursday I headed to the doctor. She did the rapid strep test and within seconds it was showing positive for strep. I haven't had strep since I was a kid. She put me on penicillin, and told me that I would be contagious until I had been on the medicine for 24 hours.

I had already been keeping myself away from the kids. It was so hard not to love on them and kiss them for that long! I've got some serious catching up to do. Kyle was the best and played Mr. Mom around the house for the past few days. I haven't done anything. Thanks Kizyle--- you're the best!

Praise God, I'm finally on the mend. I might even attempt a few 4th activities today. Maybe some fireworks, I don't know. Nothing too crazy!

Hope y'all have a great 4th!
