Good Morning :)

Mad Scientist!

This picture reminds me of Albert Einstein.  Like she is cooking up some crazy plan!!  You can see the crazy in her eyes :) hehe

Quick Pix

I will admit this past week has been a light picture taking day.  Somehow I have still managed to pick up the camera everyday but once.   But, most of the time I take a bunch of shots on the same day and I usually have a lot of pictures to choose from. This week not so much.  But anyways, I couldn't resist this hair bow at the grocery store today.  It was in the clearance section - can you believe it :)  I had to try it on her as soon as I got home, it is almost as big as her little head.  It is cute for a quick picture, but it would never stay in more than two seconds.  It is large enough to attract Harper's attention and then she wants to pull it out and eat it :)  But we did get a cute picture.  I will definitely try and get a few more pictures with this hairbow in them :)

I really was trying to take a self portrait, as I have read a few articles about how that is good practice.  Well I was trying and someone was supposed to be sleeping, but that didn't happen so instead I pulled her into the pictures with me.  I did not practice as much as I was hoping, but instead I got a fun picture with the two of us.

This picture doesn't look like much, but this picture represents about 20 minutes of independent playtime.  She was happy as a clam playing with all of her toys all by herself.  I quietly snuck up behind her to catch this picture.

Playing with her rainstick ball from Christmas.

Editing attempt #2
I loved the picture below, but thought it was too dark.  So I attempted to brighten a layer in elements.  I like how it came out, but don't love it.  If you have any recommendations please let me know.  And I know the best recommendation is to get it right the first time in the camera :)  I did fix the settings and get a little bit better pictures as I kept shooting, but this picture had her cute smile.

Even while sick she is still good at being cute :)

Sick Baby :(

The only way she would take a nap was cuddling with daddy, so lucky him - he got a nap in as well.

Beautiful sunset!

And because I was given a hard time last time I posted without a Harper photo-- here you go :)

Who doesn't love playing with a cool wooden spoon :)

Happy Valentine's Day!!

This was my very first attempt at editing a picture.  I have Photoshop Elements and recently took a class to learn how to use it.  I still rarely use it, but I was happy with how this picture came out.  All I did was edit out the outlet and the stairs.  Small change, but now you can focus on my little Valentine instead of the distractions in the background.  Here is the original picture just so you could see the difference.

If anybody has any Photoshop Element tips or great tutorial websites or blogs regarding Photoshop Elements please leave me a comment!  I would love to check them out.

Buddies :)

We just took out her little activity table and it seems to be a big hit.  She just needs to get a little bit taller or stronger to get to it.  Until then we either put it on its side or put her on our lap.

Photo shoot Fail ! 

Each month we try to take pictures on her month birthday with the neat stickers that we received at our shower.  Well that was great until she figured out what was on her belly and how cool it is to peel it off.  Plus we started in the evening inside which did not help the pictures at all.  So about a gazillion pictures later we have barely any good ones :)  But here they are--our standard picture in the tub and then the closest thing we could get to pictures with the sticker on her belly.  Look closely at the last one and notice how beat up that sticker is.  It was so wet and gummy by the time I gave in and took it off that one part seemed to be completely stuck to the shirt.  Oh well :)


February 10th, 2013

Trying out headbands again.  We have been using only hair clips lately.  Either way we need something for this shaggy do :)

Harper and Pop

We had my nieces birthday party today and I tried so hard to work in manual mode on my camera.  I was mainly trying to take pictures of the birthday girl (4 yrs old) and her sister (2 yrs old).  Let's just say I have lots and lots of practice ahead of me :)  Almost every picture has a blur in it.  But then I would make the shutter speed faster and I would lose all the light and I would up the iso and it would be too grainy. I just could not win.  Oh well, practice, practice, practice :)


February 8th, 2013

I love this picture even though it is far from perfect.  
I wish her hands weren't blurry and I wish I would have framed the shot better.  
But oh well, I still love it :)

Cheat Day :(

I have to admit, this is a cheat day.  I did not take this picture, I did not photoshop the touch ups.  I was just there helping to get the smile :)  My girlfriend is really good at photoshop and she thought it would be fun to put wings on Harper for Valentines Day.  Of course I said lets do it :)  Well unfortunately this has been a busy week and I did not get my camera out at all today.  So here is my cheat picture.  I thought you would all like to see it, but I cannot take credit for it at all.  On a side note, I am also taking a class on Photoshop Elements this weekend so maybe I can work on some of my own touchups.

Maxing and Relaxing on the Couch.
Taking a nap on the couch, just like daddy :)


February 5th, 2013


I told you she has lots of shoes.
I thought this was all of them, but we received another bag of hand me down shoes today.  
The other funny thing is at the moment we wear about three different pairs.

Playing on the floor with daddy.


February 3rd, 2013

We had a little tutu photo shoot to help pass the dreary snowy day and it made everyone happy :)  


February 2nd, 2013

I love my daddy!!


Splish Splash

I don't know how to rotate this-- but I thought you would like to see this Mom and Dad.
If anyone else wants to enjoy it - sorry you have to tip your screen :)

We took Harper swimming at the Y for the first time tonight.  She LOVED it!  She loved splashing in the water. We only got out because we were freezing so we thought she must be too.  She is definitely going to be a water baby!

Being goofy while eating dinner :)


January 30th, 2013

We had a drastic change in temperature, which gave us a very rare 56 degree day in January.  The result was a very eery fog.  But the warm weather was nice -- I would like a few more of those rare days!


January 29th, 2013

Like any lady she has a gazillion and they are really cute on little feet.
This pair is extra special.
