I just had a couple rolls of film developed.  They had been sitting in my camera bag for months, so of course, my babies have changed since then.  The boy's cheeks are no longer as chubby and his hair isn't as big, and Miss M has had a growth spurt and is now a lovely beanpole.

I'm planning to share most of the photos here, but I won't have much of a method to it.  (In other words, I'm not announcing a new blog series or anything organized like that.)

The nerdy bits:

Little Yogis



This is an almost-verbatim paraphrase of a couple of texts I sent my sister. 

So I made the mistake of trying to do the yoga video* with the kids in the room.  H climbed into my lap when I sat cross-legged...  When I was leaning over, trying to do a different pose, M jumped onto my back and begged for a piggyback ride.  Then they both started chanting, "Piggyback!  Piggyback!"  Lesson learned.  Yoga is for nap time.



*I bought a yoga-for-beginners DVD the other day because I thought it would help me relax...
M became very upset when I stopped the video during all the commotion.  She really wanted to watch it with me.  (However, she also really wanted to distract me from watching it.) I have yet to attempt it again.  I have, however, found this YouTube channel, and have done one session of desk-yoga while editing photos, and that was pretty awesome.

This pair in three words: sweet, friendly, happy.  I had a great time photographing them in Colonial Williamsburg.  It will be a joyful occasion when they are married next spring!

My Angelina



That's not really her name, but she loves Angelina Ballerina.  So much.  At one point several months ago, she was packing her bags and taking imaginary field trips to Chipping Cheddar.









Note the intense and varied facial expressions.  She's my little drama queen.  I sometimes jokingly call her "Maroney", as in "Jenna Maroney" from 30 Rock.  Yep.

My photography blog is not yet mobile-friendly, so as I retool that site, I'm going to start sharing more of my photography work here on my personal blog.  First up, an expecting couple just a matter of days before their little guy entered the world.
