Feel my head, it’s soggin wet.

Moments before these photos were taken, Lillienne was pulled into the lake by her cousin. She was a little shocked at first, obviously most upset since her leather sandals got soaked. Then she ran off and decided she was very excited to run around in a fifteen pound diaper.

She isn’t cute, she is berry cute.

This summer has been insane. Dustin has been working overtime nearly every night and I have been working every weekend, and doing more work during the week. Weddings and photoshoots, editing and so forth. Every. Weekend. Business is good, although sometimes I feel overwhelmed. So far I have been able to keep up the momentum but usually by nine every night, I am sacked and just want some wine and a queensize bed. But I settle for MTV and any clean surface.
Lily is growing with such a rate and speaking in sentences now. Her words are more decipherable and I would have to guess she knows about 50+ words because I can’t even keep up with her new words anymore. And she is now saying no…and shaking her head and turning away. Sigh. I suppose she has to be more independant but I was thinking more along the lines of when she is 21.
We have gained a neice in the past few weeks,, and Dustin’s sis is also expecting her baby girl any day. One of his brothers is also getting married at the end of August and I love seeing our family expand and grow before my very eyes.

Almost a year and a half old, at The Strawberry Ranch.

Packing Tape and I = BFF’s.

So, the gypsys are at it again. Seriously. Actually the government is hot on our trail so its time we pack up again and find a new home.
Wouldn’t that be FUN if my life was that interesting?? The sad truth is, we are running out of space here. And I desperately want a yard for Lillienne. Somewhere we can learn the names of plants and catch grasshoppers and have a little swing set. And one of those little kiddie pools I can sit in and tan in and drink in. Kidding!
…Ok I am so not kidding.
I can’t wait to have a bigger dining room, two more bedrooms, an extra bathroom, a finished basement, a yard and a garage. Oh, and a soaker tub. Swoon!! Were moving at the end of June which is going to be the mother of all gong shows since I am at a 3 day wedding event working and Dustin is going to have to juggle moving everything plus somehow watching Lillienne unless someone in my family can watch her. I am sad because I LOVE living downtown but we’re only moving about a five-minute car ride away so everything I love about living downtown will still be close and even within walking distance. Unfortunately we’re not buying our own home yet, but in less than a year this is our goal.
After the big move is the July long weekend and we’re heading to a couple different lakes to spend some time away from the city and with our families, and we have a new niece to welcome to the world so I am quite excited about that. Everyone loves a new baby! YUM.
