Good times

Man I've been feeling so lame about my picture taking skills! I can't seem to get up the motivation to take my camera out. And nothing seems to turn out the way I want either. Especially when we are seriously lacking in natural light. Uggh. I really should take pictures no matter what. If I'm a snob about only taking pictures when they are going to be awesome, then I won't be getting any! And something is always better than nothing. Especially with precious babies that are growing so quickly. Anyway, I'm talking about the good times here. Cause we have been having fun too, amid lots of crying and temper tantrums.

Making cookies on a Sunday morning:

Playing around our little pool: I love her lots.

Wrestling on the bed:

Tomorrow I will be blogging about our closets. So exciting!

Also, do any of you (who might read this blog) have children who prefer to sleep on the floor at night than to sleep in their beds? I have to put Ethan back in his bed at least 4 times before I go to bed, and even then when I go and get leah at 4:00am he's back on the floor. And he's completely asleep the whole time. He doesn't wake up when I move him. I don't know. What a weirdo!

I had that problem with Logan for a short time. I don't remember doing anything about it. He got over that phase fairly quickly. We had more of a problem with sleep walking and finding the toilet in the right room! Luckily that one didn't last long either. LOL Good luck!

Sally sometimes sleeps on the floor. I thought it was a Peterson thing because Neal and his siblings commonly slept on the floor growing up and can sleep anywhere, but maybe it is just a toddler thing.

I hear ya on the natural light thing. I already have a cheapy little point and shoot so it's really frustrating that our house is so dark that I have to use the flash a lot. Hate it. But I guess a picture with a flash is better than no picture. Someday I'll have a house with more windows, hopefully... But I've always been impressed with your photography skills, regardless of the lighting!

Yep, our oldest loves to sleep on the floor. He'll go through phases where he does it often, but he always has his pillow and blankets laid out perfectly which is funny. The Pediatrician said it's normal and won't hurt them to sleep on the floor.

Those first pictures of Ross and Ethan are so sweet! You have captured some great moments, regardless of the lighting.
