Family photos Fall 2012

I just realized that it's been a while since I've posted any Brooke updates here on the blog. I think it's because I'm so darn busy chasing after her, that I barely have time to think! ;) Let me just tell you...she is  QUITE the busy toddler. And I mean that. Like, the stories I have are just....OH MY. (thank God for nap time, bed time, and wine. Not necessarily in that order).

We do still love her, even though she is crazy :)

Here are some recent photos we had taken professionally this Fall. This Mama takes LOTS of pics - but that is just the problem: I'm never in any of them! So we decided to have a family session and I could not be happier with the photos. All photo credit goes to the lovely Erin, of Erin Wolczik Photography. If you are local to the MA area, I HIGHLY recommend her - she is so great to work with and her prices are great! If you contact her, please let her know that I sent you...

  She simply would NOT put Teddy down that day. Brooke has 3 favorite things at the moment: books, musical instruments, and her stuffed animal friends. They are ALWAYS with us. She's a popular gal...!

The photos of her in this chair are too funny. #1 - Peter and I were acting like total morons to get her to look & smile at us. #2 - we were not only allowing her to stand on the chair, we were encouraging it...so she was GIDDY with excitement over that. and #3 - she is totally thinking "what are these people doing? They look like idiots!" LOL

this last photo is breathtaking. I had asked for a sunset picture and boy, did we get it! If you look SUPER close, you can see Brooke's pebbly pigtail (her signature 'do!) sticking straight up. LOVE.

Erin blogged even more photos from our session HERE. She did such a wonderful job capturing Brooke's spunky personality. Thank you, Erin!

Hopefully you will see pics of my little tornado here on the blog more often. I am really aching to get back to scrapbooking, once the Holidays are over & done with. Lately I've been working on Christmas craft projects to give as gifts. Fun! I plan on sharing some of my non-paper craft creations, too :)
