The best of Uncle Mud

Our baby photographer, Uncle Mud does some GREAT work behind the lense.

Helps when your subject is the cutest baby in the world! Here are some of my fav's from our last photo shoot!

Meet your grandchild!

Grandma and Grandpa Heuerman came for a week long visit May 5th to the 12th, and what a great week! We started off with some spring time BBQ fun, thrown in a little badminton, and veggie tray, snugglie baby and filtered lemon water, and vuala, family memories are made. I know it was the week of the Queen of England's visit, but all the fun was had in our little courtyard!

The week was fantastic, trips into the big city, boat rides to Mt.Vernon, dinners out and walks around the neighborhood....the best part of all was simply introducing Dad and Mama B to their very first grandchild. Most definitely a proud mommy moment. I imagine life will be full of those moments with a kid like Naomi!

Record news...

Naomi got 6 straight hours of sleep last night! That means that I got 6 straight hours of sleep last night! I feel like I am on top of the world! I could hike Mt.Everest, write a novel, take quantum physics!...or clean my kitchen. Yea, that will require about the same amount of energy as the Everest climb, and would be more productive :)

Here are some more pictures of our darling little sleeper!

pretty smiles

babysitting job

Tomorrow Naomi is two months old.
How does two months just fly by? I can't believe it was two months ago that Christian and I were sitting in Caribou coffee together, talking about how it was our last date that we didn't have to arrange child care (well, for the next 12 years or so...).
Life has been very different as I knew it in the past two months. At first it felt like I was assigned this very long babysitting job for a kid I never met before. It was SO weird to get it through my head that she was MINE, OURS, from God, for us to keep, and that her real parents wouldn't be pulling up in the driveway at 6:00, and slipping me $40...
I finally got it. OUR daughter, at two months recognizes me when I pick her up, she grips for dear life on my hair when I go to put her down (which for now, is totally cute) I talk about my self in the third person as "mama" and it doesn't make me feel like I am six and playing 'house', and best of all I am getting SO many smiles these days! Worth WAY more than $40!
