I was commissioned by my mother to take some pictures of two of her favorite boys while I was visiting.

I was reminded that:

1. Taking pictures of toddlers is not fun

2. #1 requires two things I am short on these days; time and patience

3. My photography skills are seriously lacking

4. I have COMPLETE respect for those people who CAN coax a smile out of my two year old AND capture it in an amazing picture

5. I will never join the ranks with those amazing people mentioned above

After about 30 minutes we called it a wrap.

And these were as good as it got.


Can you tell Miles was tired of hearing me ask him to say “cheese?”

Maybe next time I’ll plan ahead and try to get my talented friend to help me out.

Either that, or I’ll be smart enough to “Just Say No”.

Rough Night and Cousins Reunited

By the looks of these two bed-headed hooligans, it must have been a rough night.


Miles was so happy to have a little Buddy around.


(Check out those Jokers. They were TROUBLE!)


This is what I miss the most being so far away. The chance for Miles to grow up with his cousins, the same way I did. Having a built-in “best friend”. I miss that for him.

But we’ll take it when we can get it!

Thanks Gabe, for being a good sport when Miles stole your toys, ate your food, hoarded your treats, and threw books at your head. :)

At Long Last

I was finally able to see my cute little nephew in the flesh. And it is an understatement to say I could just eat him up.


Miles loved his new little Nephew, and followed Ed around everywhere, making sure he was taking care of that baby. He was also VERY helpful in letting Ed know when the baby had a poopy diaper, where the baby should go to have that diaper changed, where the clean diapers are and where the dirty ones go….. I think you get the picture.

It was adorable.

And he even helped feed the baby.

And he did it ALL, while rockin a pretty sweet ‘do


P.S…..I am on vacation in Utah

P.P.S. It’s awesome
