He is my friend Emily's little Eric who was born in November. He's SUCH a good baby, and so cuddly and happy and squishy and sweet - I hold him and kiss him every chance I get. And he hugs me back because I'm cuddly and squishy too and he can tell how much I like him.
On Wednesday this week, I had 8 of my friends and their 13 preschool aged kids, over for lunch for Rachel's birthday and honey lime enchiladas. Yes, the key words in that sentence: 13 preschoolers. On a rainy day in my 1500 square foot house. And yes, it was noisy. Wow.
But we had a great time and baby Eric was the quietest person in the house. When it was time to go home, as his mom was gathering up his two brothers, she set Eric on the couch - he can already sit up by himself. I looked over and he was falling asleep sitting up.
I grabbed my camera, even though I had on the wrong lens, and snapped a few quickies from across the room so as not to disturb him.
He would start to drift off and it would make him fall forward, when he was almost on his face, he'd startle himself awake and sit back up and then immediately close his eyes and start to fall forward again.
Going, going, gon....
Well, sort of.
This baby makes me want to have one of my own. If I could somehow be guaranteed this EXACT baby, I might even do it.
Well.. let's see now. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have been married for 13 years to my favorite man on the planet. I can't get over how cute he is, or how much he drives me crazy.
We have three beautiful and brilliant kids who make us laugh every day.
The abiding passion of my life has been horses. I have been blessed to work as a horse professional since 1988. I feel like my love of horses has been a God-given gift and is an instrument for learning and self development in all areas of my life. My study of Parelli Natural Horsemanship has made me a better person and a better parent, not to mention a better partner for my horses.
I live in a small town and love small town life and the good people who surround us here.
I love to develop and discover my talents and feel strongly that there is nothing I can't do if I set my mind to it. I LOVE photography and photoshop, and although I have a whole lot to learn in that area, I'm getting a little better all the time and really enjoy taking pictures of family and friends.
I live a very blessed life.
