Home again, home again, jiggety-jig


I'm back! Didja miss me? :)

Our month out west was quite refreshing, and it feels surprisingly good to be back! I thought I would dread it, but our return coincided with my morning sickness ending and I am feeling spunkier than I have in months. Yippee!

It was kind of a bummer to feel so puny most of the time with our families, but on the other hand, it was nice to have help and sympathy. I think it helped the rough weeks go by a lot faster. It never hurts to be spoiled, eh?

Now that we're back home, it really feels like summer vacation. The first few days I caught the boys starting to say they needed something to do. That is a HUGE NO-NO around here, because I can think of PLENTY for them to do (aka weeds out in the 98-degree-plus-humidity heat).

It's nice to see them work those things out for themselves. (evil chuckle)

Today they got ahold of the camera and had some fun. . . .


Gotta love that flattering angle. :)



And some nice stop-motion here. . . .



Now, now. Don't be scared!

So what do you think? Budding photography genius? Or menace to the blogging world?



P.S. I MISSED YOU! Isn't that weird? I mean, not weird that you're missable, but that I actually feel such a connection to people I never actually see. You know what I mean, don't you?

I think I'd best go to bed now.

Hope I don't regret this tomorrow.

I'm so glad your back in the blogging world. I was so worried that it had been so long. I thought the worst. glad you had a great time and that the morning sickness is gone! Yeah for you to be back!

I'm glad you're back!! I have missed you! I've checked your blog often wondering what was going on with you. I guess fun with family is more important.

Glad the morning sickness is over. For me, the second half of the pregnancy was harder. You know, wondering every day if something would happen.

Okay, keep your chin up!

It was wonderful having you and the Baker Boys (including DC) at our "Rancho con vaca--a veces" in your blog world absentia. Let's hope they are budding photographers. :)

Welcome back, friend! I have really missed your blog posts! It was so fun to get on this morning and have three new ones to read. Yay! The boys' pictures are very...interesting. =) I'm so glad you were happy to be home and that the "morning" sickness has finally ended. So great! I miss you!!!
