Where are the Sept '10 babies? - Page 27

post #521 of 658

Sigh, no fireworks for us. 

#1, we get up wicked early, so staying up past sunset is a rare thing.

#2 we live in AZ, so being outside in July is awful

#3 even though I was thinking about staying up and sweating anyway, we had a huge dust storm so our town's show was cancelled. 

Ah well.  I think maybe next year we'll plan on the 4th in Chicago.  My family always has a huuuuuge party, and the 4th to me should be about humidity and junebugs, not gritty dust and oven temps.  :)

And don't forget fireflies! They were putting on a pre-fireworks show for us here in Michigan. :)

Caitlin can't pull up to standing yet, but she can push up on her feet on something that is shorter than she is. At the mall today she was pushing up on things in the play area, then diving head first over them after toys. She realized she can climb onto them, but doesn't get the concept of falling off the other side. Thankfully I or another mama was there to catch her . . . this time. Gonna have to be careful at the mall for a while until she learns to exercise a bit of caution!

 

Did anyone else do fireworks last night? Caitlin is pretty noise sensitive (jumps when someone sneezes, for example), so I wasn't sure we'd go, but some friends were doing a pretty impressive display, so we decided to chance it and leave if necessary. She jumped with the first few fireworks, but didn't get upset, then she just fell asleep. I was impressed, because they were loud! I kept her ears covered the whole time and she did great.


Of course I did! LOL.. It's a terrible pic, but you really only get one shot before you have to tend to the crying babe :P.  My girlie LOVED the fireworks, my real camera is so very close to dead, and my phone won't take pics at night :(.  So no action shots here. 

 

Our next exciting milestone is I think we're about ready for a tiny  Pebbles kinda pigtail! I gotta get some little elastics and give it a try.

I saw videos of that, it was crazy! Day to night in less that a minute.

My hubby has been through several of them (over in Kuwait/Iraq) but I've never been in one. I can imagine that is one sort of storm I would hate. It's bad enough the fire down here still blows its smoke up and chokes our little town every single morning :(

Dust storms are hideous.  They make a mess of everything, and trees here are not strong (and tend to be overwatered with shallow roots) so they fall over like crazy.  And it is terrifying if you're on the road.  You're supposed to pull over and stop - but of course people still try and drive, and speed.  So the news was saying pull over, stop, and turn off your lights - because if the lights are on then some idiot still driving with try and "follow" you, and smash into your stopped car.  Suuuppper.

If it's nasty windy, I take side streets because I'd rather stop in a residential zone than on a highway.

well the driving aspect doesn't sound that much different from driving in a snow storm, except I imagine the roads aren't quite as slippery with sand/dust as they are with snow/ice lol

DS sticks to me like glue. I've got the attitude that it's just a phase and since he's my only baby (hopefully one more later, but we will see what God has planned) I will enjoy this phase of with him. DH is not so understanding, he b*tches about it whenever DS starts crying for me. I hate that he isn't very understanding about it.

 

One good thing, is DS is fine when I am not around. It's only if he sees me and I am not holding/playing with him - he goes into crying-baby-mode.

Holy separation anxiety! My poor girl is having a terrible time when I try to leave the room! I went grocery shopping without her today and came home to a frazzled DH, big sister and baby lol.. She looks sooo innocent, don't let her fool you!

Wow, all the babies here have grown so fast. Count me in on the side that can't believe the first birthday is 2 months away! *sniffle*

 

It feels like Elias is blowing through all these milestones. He's started crawling, something his older brother didn't do until he was a year old! And he is cruising like crazy.  He also has a thing for Dora. Every time his older brother watches it, Elias MUST MUST MUST be in the room. It's too cute.

 

How did this

Mae is all about Jake and the Neverland Pirates or Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. In the car the "hot dog" song calms her down.

And yeah, totally crazy that in less than a year we go from

LOVE this pic!!! I can see them all looking back on it in 20 years trying to pick out who's who.

 

Please, please give me your tips on taking such great pictures!! You really make great ones! I took a photography class in college, but it has been awhile and now I just use the automatic setting, but I know pics could be much better. What do you do?

Um... #1 tip any photographer will tell you is, if you see a picture you want to take you should probably change perspective. If you only ever shoot from how you see things you will probably miss some great shots.

Otherwise? I don't know, practice I guess lol... I never had classes or anything I've just always been artistic.
