Merry Christmas!

I actually love this picture too (it is gracing the back of our Christmas card)
For our Christmas Cards this year we tried to do a homemade photo shoot. Well, I couldn't find my tripod and Bryce was EXTRA fussy after we put his nice clothes on. After some failed attempts (see first pic), we decided feed him, to let him nap and then tried again. My absolute hands-down favorite of Bryce now, is the very last pic. And it is literally the last picture I took this day too.

it was a short lived nap because Sadie went on a barking spree

I discovered this one AFTER I ordered my cards...but my God he looks like my middle brother, Ryan here.

And here is the final:

Art project: characters

My art 1 students recently began a project on cartooning while I was on maternity leave. After they created their characters they split into groups to create a comic strip(coming soon!) then we took it a step further and made their characters out of clay. These are from my first block:

3 month Brycer

Three months!?
I can't believe how fast time has flown by. After thirteen weeks of staying at home with my darling boy, I had to go back to work. Bryce is staying with my MIL part time and a sitter for the other part. While I am very happy I have two wonderful people to look after him and love him, I miss him terribly. With that said, he is learning how to take a bottle like a champ, fall asleep on his own and is becoming a little more independent of me. He loves giggling (especially at pretty brunettes). He is working on sitting while propped up and even rolled over on his side a few times! I love him more everyday and can't believe how fast he is growing. My favorite thing he has been doing lately is the running man...where he moves his arms and legs really fast and breathes in a panting fashion.

Comparison Pics!

I only have two comparison pics - and I think the ones of me are when I was older than Bryce is now (at least the second one). I plan on getting some comparison pics of Tee too! I definitely think that Bryce favors Tee, until I compare baby pics...I just had a much larger forehead:-)


look at my chins!! haha so chunky!

I tried to find photos of Bryce that were similar to the two I had of me.
