Nope your eyes do not decieve you, this is in fact a brand now post!! It's been nearly a year, as many of you often remind me ;0) but I finally carved out the time and decided to give in to the urging, pleas and suggestions to resurrect my little piece of cyberspace! I'll admit, I'm pretty excited about it too! I didn't really ever intend to let it go, but life and facebook kept finding it's way in and before I knew it almost a year had come and gone... my how time does fly!! So here's to new starts and staying on top of things!!
Welcome back!!


It's been a long time coming and I have no excuses!! It's beyond time for his first blog appearance and since 9 seemingly short months have already flown by since his arrival, this will be a loooong one! Without further adu, blog world say hello to the newest member of the Osborn fam...

Riddik Uriah
upon arrival he weighed a whoppin' 8lbs 6oz, our biggest little munchkin :0) and was 20 inches long just like his Big Bro was!!
We also learned that we apparently make the same baby over and over... and over again because he does in fact look JUST LIKE his older brother and especially his older sister! He, however, has them both beat in the size department hands down!
Not to cut him short tho, he has started to grow into his own little look too, our little Rit! Over these past 9 months his little personality has really started to come out and he is quite the character :0)
I love his gummy little grin and scrunchy nosed, squinty eyed giggle... and I could listen to him "talk" all day! Alora and Xander are his biggest fans and he is their's in return! Alora was the first to get him to smile and she's been his favorite since!
He is growing up way too fast, crawling everywhere and now pulling up to anything he can find sturdy enough :0) Perhaps my favorite part of all... he is a momma's boy thru & thru!!
We love our little chunker munk and all his cute and cuddliness!! Wouldn't trade him for the world!!

The time has come!!

Today is Alora's first day of ALL DAY kindergarten... she is beyond excited as you can see, mommy on the other hand, not so much!! Tho I knew this day was fast approaching I don't think there's anything I could have done to really prepare myself, I'm just not big on all day kindergarten, however I know she'll be fine and there's nothing I can do about it so I'll deal right?! Anyway, she did super this morning, jumped out of bed and was dressed in record time(she's not much of a morning kind of girl) and even ate some breakfast and let me fix her hair complaint free!!! That's some excitment right there, trust me!! We arrived and Xander and I walked her in to her class where she settled right in and began molding her playdough and talking to her neighbors, all the while Mommy was snapping a few pics and trying to hold it together, which I did until safely in the confines of the van :0) I've been emotional all day, I'm sure the fatigue and hormones don't help right??, but I'm super excited to pick her up and hear alllllll about her day and what she did!!! My baby's growin' up!!

All packed up and ready to go!!

Brother had to be in a pic, he really really REALLY wanted to go to school too!!
Ready for her first day!!

Happy Birthday Hubby :0)

Well today my wonderful hubby celebrates a milestone!! And to welcome it in right, last night at dinner we were talking about his birthday and seemingly out of nowhere, thanks to Pappa ;0) Xander suddenly says, "Oh Dad you're OLD!!" ROFLOL!!!!! It was hilarious and priceless and the look on Kevin's face was just as good, ha!! Love that boy, and his Daddy too!! Isn't it amazing how "not so old" certain ages look the closer you get to them?!! The big 3-0, but he pulls it off well, if I do say so myself!! I couldn't ask for a better husband and father to my kiddos, and the comic relief is entertaining too ;0) I love you forever babe!! I hope it's your best year yet!!

Happy Birthday!!!

At 24 weeks we get another peek at our little man... snug as a bug in a rug :)
This time in 3D!!! I took the plunge and made an appointment for a 3D ultrasound, I'd never had one before, and I can't tell you how glad I am that I did it!! I absolutely LOVE these pics and the clinic also gives you your entire session on DVD set to the music you pick out and bring with you. I chose Godspeed(Sweet Dreams) by Dixie Chicks, Arms Wide Open by Creed, Baby Sleep Tonight by Brad & Shannon Millard (Mercy Me), and Little Wonders by Rob Thomas! I was a little hesitant at first, I felt like I was "cheating," but once I was there and I actually SAW the first glimpse of his little face I was soooo excited and I will cherish these FOREVER... I'm just left wishing I'd done the same thing with Alora and Xander!!

They also do some pics in 2D and since I didn't get a profile pic at my other ultrasound I asked if we could try for that one specifically, I have the same shot with Alora and Xander, and after a little encouragement he came around!!

He actually needed quite a bit of "encouragement" in the beginning and the tech had to bounce him around a little because he was hiding his face in my placenta... he's a little camera shy already :) Either that or he knows what he's in for on the outside and he's already protesting, HA!!

It was definitely worth it and I already think he is beautiful!! 3 1/2 months and counting... I can't wait to meet him!!!

Chris & Marty!

Last weekend my good friend Katie and I had the opportunity to photograph our 2nd wedding! This couple was awesome and the entire wedding party was so much fun!! We had a blast and now have TONS of pics to process but the newlyweds are still on their honeymoon so we can't show too many just yet! Here are a couple to hold over the fam till we have them all ready tho! Enjoy :0)
