Fia Friday: My Pretty Boy

Friday, September 7th, 2012

We went over to our good friend Jenn’s house the other day. She has a great camera and we went a little crazy capturing the consistent happiness and playful personality of the little dude. God, I just want to eat him. He is delicious…and dare I say, actually pretty?

When he was born I wrote about his almost elfish personality. I even took a picture of his pointy ear. Well, the ear is a normal round shape now, but I still think his personality is all elf. In a mischievous, playful, delightful way.

At 7-months, he is sitting up on his own.

Sorry, can’t resist. Gotta put one of Fia here with her best friend, Grover…

And her best friend Aggie. Fia loves big girls!

Fia Friday: Who is Who? Guess!

Friday, May 4th, 2012

We took a picture of Fia at about 3 months laying on her then-brother, Wayne Sanchez. Now she has a real brother and the cat is just, well, a cat again. But we thought Emmett deserved a turn as well.

Can you tell who is who? Ignore the color of the clothes. Both outfits are/were Fia’s. Phil thinks our babes look identical. I don’t think so…though definitely brother-sister. And isn’t Wayne the picture of perfection as well?

Fia Friday: Photo Shoot For New Blog Title

Friday, April 13th, 2012

This was as close as we got to my “tree dangling” idea.

I mentioned in my blog post yesterday that we changed the name of my blog. Along with it, we have a new picture. After failing multiple times to get a decent picture with my small point and shoot, I asked my good friend Jilly Wendell to come over. She’s a professional photographer–and extremely talented at that.

Originally I told her I wanted to be up in a tree, dangling down, with Fia pointing up at me and Emmett looking up from his blanket.

“Um, I don’t see that working on many levels,” she said.

Oh yeah, right. First of all, it’s a tiny picture, so there is no way to get all that in one shot. Second, how the hell was I going to get two babies–one who is only 2 months old–to do that? And third: should I be “dangling” from a tree right now? Absurd idea. Scratch that.

But then, I thought about adding Wayne Sanchez (my transexual cat) into the mix. He’s a big part of our family.

She gently pointed out that:

a) We were shooting outside to make use of the natural light, (which immediately erases Wayne from the picture. He could run off and be eaten by a coyote, which would really wreck the day) and…

b) Trying to get two babies to look at the lens, and then a cat?? Probably Impossible. Especially when you’re asking for a favor.

So we bopped around the yard and got some really great shots. It was loads of fun. And simple. Which is all you can do when you’re juggling two babies and trying to pull off a decent picture. The one above and the three below are what I sent to Parents to help decide.

 This one would have required cropping Phil out.

Fia Friday: Pretty In Pink & Boy in Blue

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Our friends sent Fia this dress. Not sure if it’s a tutu or if we can use it for Easter. Maybe it’s both? (But let me note: it goes well with her pink eye that she was just diagnosed with…poor girl.)

And of course, a new picture of Baby Boy Blue.

This one is from today:

And this one from about a week ago…
