First Smiles :)

Getting the first smile from each of the kids completely melted my heart! After so many sleepless nights, the first smiles made me forget all of the sleep deprivation and any frustration encountered. If these do not make you smile, I am not sure what will :)

Fall Pictures

I had not really given much thought to getting professional pictures taken, but recently had my mother-in-law and grandmother-in-law (is that how you say it?) ask about them and show interest. The appointment was made at Portait Innovations in Perrysburg for the babies and their cousin, Wade, to have their pictures taken on a Sunday afternoon. I am not going to lie, I was a little nervous about how it would go with three 3-month olds and one 16-month old, but to my surprise it went very well! All four of them cooperated and the pictures turned out VERY cute! They took many pictures together and individually, and even with Al's grandparents. I was so excited to get the pictures back and get some pictures hung up in my house (I have not taken time to order pictures yet...YIKES!) Thank you so much for this fun afternoon!! I do want to mention that the pics did in fact turn out better than the ones pictured after they did some editing such as remove photographers foot from pics. Since they took 120-some shots, I will not put them all on here, but will show a few of my favorites:

Go Buckeyes!! The dolls were a last minute grab of mine as we were going out the door. I wasn't sure if we would be able to use them, but I am so glad I brought them. I thought they looked very cute with the babies.
