The photography workshop of my dreams!

Jean and Travis Smith are two of my most favorite photographers in the whole wide world!  I'm kind of hoping to win a seat at the next workshop in the good ole D-town so that I can learn from them (and visit my family :)  Who wants to babysit Bug for me? :))

Here is a link describing the workshop.

Go to this link to enter it you'd like to attend as well!  Who knows, you just might win!

This morning...

...we cooked real food in our almost done kitchen.
 Asher ate his breakfast too.
 And then we played just to make him smile since the camera was out.
Note:  No, I really don't let him eat himself for breakfast...he just LOVES to suck on his whole hand now.  And yes, we did put carrots and celery in our eggs...sooo yummy!

Like Father like Son.

When I first came out to Seattle to meet Shem's family before we were engaged I learned a lot about him from his parents and siblings.  One of the funniest things about Shem is that he can entertain himself for hours!  Even as a kid he would play board games against himself if nobody else was able to play with him.  Well,  it seems that my son is no different.  While making dinner I caught him staring at the ceiling laughing. :)

Eight Weeks/Two Months Old!

I can't believe that Asher is already two months old (almost...not until the 6th)!  It feels like Asher has been a part of our lives forever, yet at the same time he has only been with us for two months.  Life does change a lot when you have a kid and our life has changed for the better.  Our little Asher is a blessing to us.  He has been ever since we found out that we had a good pregnancy.  We love our little one and these are some of the things that we absolutely adore about him:
-He smiles a lot!  And I'm pretty sure that he giggled in his sleep the other morning. :)
-He kicks and moves his arms.
-He does this really cute baby coo/giggle/whine that melts your heart
-He sometimes will hang out by himself in his swing all wide-eyed and happy until I get him, so he must be patient.
-He still loves contrast...a lot...and I think it so cute!
-He will whine sweetly when he wants attention.
-He is finally in size 1 diapers
-He is very strong and can hold his weight while standing supported by Dad.
-He is putting more fat on his body and mostly carries it on his thighs (which is so cute!).

All in all we have a very sweet baby.  We're very blessed to have such a beautiful and good baby.  Here is the beautiful part that I love about him.  I took these photos yesterday after bath time on my bed.  I used my 50mm 1.4 lens and I love the results!
