Summertime Fun!

I took the kids swimming this week. We got together with a few photographer friends. Here are a few of the photos from our day of fun.

The Urban Shoot

Can you believe I took all six of my kids downtown in the sweltering 100 degree heat for a three hour photo shoot? Can you believe they were super cooperative and the only complaint came when I said we were done? They loved it! None of them have ever really walked around downtown Salt Lake […]

I actually touched my camera

Are you shocked and amazed? Hee hee, I had everything set up to take pictures of the babies at our homeschool playgroup and decided to snap a couple pictures of the only two children of mine who don’t currently look like they’ve been in a fight. LOL We’ve had a rough week with injuries. I […]

Ollie is reading! Family update…

I have to admit I’m honestly shocked. I haven’t worked much with Oliver on his reading the last couple of months because of morning sickness and hope that he wouldn’t read before Rani who is 10 months older. Well, in the two months we haven’t been doing reading lessons, lo and behold the kid has […]

Haircut! Nooooo!

Well, it has happened yet again, but this time it broke my heart. I have absolutely ADORED Finn’s hair. I have kept it trimmed and wavy and sweet. I just loved it. Yes, my 5yo decided to give him a haircut right to the scalp. I still get sick to my stomach when I look […]

Finn’s First Haircut

On the 6th I decided to finally cut Finn’s hair.  He’s 18 months now and his gorgeous hair was getting a little unruly.  I only cut off a small amount and already I am missing his curls!  They are gone.  🙁

Closer to the culprit

Well Finn got a rash for the first time in two months.  It’s our first clue since we got the negative allergy tests a few weeks ago.  We fed him homemade Channa Masala and Tandoori chicken.  It was delish!  We used canned tomatoes with citric acid and the chicken had lemon juice in the marinade.  […]

HOW??? So incredibly frustrated!

So I took Finn to the allergist this week to confirm that he has a corn allergy.  He tested negative to everything except oranges on his skin prick test and negative to all the biggies (milk, wheat, eggs, soy, and CORN) on the RAST test(blood test).  The allergist says that there’s nothing she can do but […]

Favorite Snap Wednesday

Wild Child!  After posting those pics last week I wanted to post something that shows how much Finn’s hair has grown.  He’s looking more like a girl each day and yet I just can’t cut his hair!   Be Not Afraid

Favorite Snap Wednesday

I’ve been sorting through some of my older shots of my kids.  I haven’t been shooting at all this month, so I’m playing catch up on editing my own photos.  I’m so far behind.  I was editing Finn’s first birthday shoot and I came across this little gem.  I can’t believe I missed it before.  […]

Update

There is nothing wrong with Finn.  He’s just virus prone and apparently cutting molars as well.  My own pediatrician was horrified at the clinic Dr.s suggestion that he be catheterized.  I was glad to hear that we are on the same page. 🙂 Edited to add, that Finn does still have allergies to corn and […]

Sick Again!

Oh I am so frustrated.  For the last two months, not only has Finn had a bad corn allergy rash, but he has also been sick with one bug after another that whole time.  Is a low immune system a side effect of corn allergy?  Who knows.  All I know is that Finn has a fever […]

Corn Allergy- my worst nightmare

I’ve been extremely stressed out for a couple of weeks, and haven’t found time to post anything.  My little guy has a corn allergy and it’s been a tough couple of weeks figuring out what he can eat.  Here are before and after pics.  The first was taken the day we discovered the allergy and […]

Finn Sleeps

I entitled this post, Finn sleeps, because this child does.  He is the best sleeper I’ve parented and I have been so grateful for it.  As a very young infant he slept 4-6 hours through the night.  Something that had been unheard of in my home before.  He is a sweet tempered easygoing baby and […]
