Bridal / Trash the Dress Shoot

So I woke up this morning with butterflys.... today was my first bridal / trash the dress session. I was excited beyond words. After meeting with Brittany we headed off to Julie Ann's house. Once we were there we ate a great breakfast that Julie Ann had fixed for us and then Brittany started on Julie Ann's hair and makeup for the first session of the day... as you'll see we started off very simple and clean and got down right dirty, lol! I think we counted 4 hair and make-up changes and then well several variations of her wedding dress and then street clothes. We had a blast shooting in San Marco and downtown... did I mention Julie Ann's husband chauffeured us around. Julie Ann was so much fun to work with, she surely knows how to bend and twist to make beautiful pictures. Brittany and I had a great time working together as well... and I must say we do work quite well together. I'll be updating a little later on my JB Photography blog ( with pictures from the shoot but for now here is a picture of all three of us.

After an exciting yet tiresome day Brittany and I headed back to her house so that we could get ready to go out to dinner with friends for Buster's birthday. Once Dean and Zane arrived we were off to Boston's. It was a fun time with friends but I must say that it was so nice to get home and get in to bed for some much needed sleep.

ok... so I just finished my third book of the Twlight series.... and all I can say is OH MY!!!! I'm so excited to start the 4th!!! I can't wait to see what happens... I just don't want it to end!!! They've all been great so far... if you haven't read them you should really try to. I wasn't on the whole Twilight thing and couldn't understand why everyone was making such a big deal till I started reading the books... you just can't help but to get sucked in!!

Oh, by the way.... TEAM EDWARD!!! lol!

Messy face... because of Daddy

Ok... so usually I'm the one that feeds Zane his cereal at night. Well tonight we decided that Daddy should give it a try. I couldn't stop laughing!! He wasn't as quick as I was so he couldn't get the full spoon in Zane's mouth before he was chopping down, so he ended up wearing almost all of it. And then he would start fussing at Dean because he was trying to clean his face instead of shoveling in the food. Anyways... here is a quick picture of Zane's face when Daddy got done... and this wasn't the worst of it... it was even worse a little earlier.

We had our first experience with a fever within the past 24 hours. Wed morning at about 2am we woke up to a coughing baby. By Wed afternoon he was a coughing and congested baby and by that night he was running a fever. I felt so bad for my little man. We called the doctor when it hit 101. They told us to just keep doing what we were doing and that they would see him in the morning... and if his fever got higher or any other symptoms arose to give them a call back. Well we made it through the night (me with only 2 hours of sleep) and headed to the doctor this morning. He was running a temp of only 99.3 when we got there. The doctor checked him out and said that he looked good for having a cold and that they believed the fever was from the cold and nothing else. I was told again to just keep up everything and call them if anything changed. He's def been in a better mood today, still fussy here and there, but in a much better mood. I even got a couple of smiles... granted the giraffe on his wall got a few more. :) So I'm hoping that little man gets to feeling better soon, I hate seeing him sick!

Hope everyone is staying healthy and warm :)

Here's a pic from yesterday... we put his giraffes in his crib with him... lol, he was talking to them before falling asleep.

Zane's giraffe

As most of you know we painted Zane's room to match his bedding. His room is a complete rain forest from wall to wall. Well he has this giraffe that is beside him when he lays on his changing table. He absolutely LOVES this giraffe. He can be screaming and you go in his room and lay him on his changing table and his screaming little face turns all smiles and giggles. So tonight he wouldn't eat his bottle.... Dean took him into his room and showed him the giraffe... instant smiles :) So then he realized that we had a stuffed giraffe and took it into the living room with him and held it against the bottom of the bottle and Zane was happy to eat his bottle... It was just so cute... here is a pic of the giraffe in his room, of Dean feeding Zane with the giraffe, and then after eating.

Zane's 2 months old!

I still can't believe my little man is already 2 months! Today we took him for his 2 month check up. He weighed 12lbs and 14oz... and was 24 inches long!!! He's getting big quick. He's in the 75 percentile for his age in weight and height. He had to get his first shot today and lets just say it was a good thing Dean was there. He wouldn't let me walk out of the room till it was all said and done... he made me stay. Zane did really good on the first one... then the second he looked at Dean and started screaming... Dean said he looked like he was telling him something getting me!! Pick me up. Well by the third shot I had HUGE tears in my eyes and well by the fourth and final... I was balling. I fell so bad for him. He wouldn't really settle down for Dean and I wanted to hold him anyways... he looked so pitiful. He settled down not to much longer after I got him. By the time we had made it to check out desk, you wouldn't know that he had shots... unless you looked at me. :) Anyways.... here are a couple of pics from today.....

2 month pictures

I can't believe Zane will be 2 months on Monday!!! He's been sleeping through the night for a week not... not getting up till 8am! I'm in heaven right now!! Not too much going on right now, just trying to stay warm. Dean has a 4 day weekend and I'm so happy that Zane and I will be able to spend some quality time with him, finally! Oh, I don't think that I've mentioned this yet either. Since Zane was about 6 weeks old he cries for "momma". It's so funny... when he get upset about something he seriously says... well, cries, "momma" in between the crying. Well tonight Dean laid him in his crib to go night night and he was in there for a little while and then you hear him... not crying... he plain as day says "momma". Dean and I's mouths dropped! So I went in his room and asked "yes, baby. What can momma do?" He looked at me and just smiled. My heart melted! I can't believe some of the things that he is already doing!! He's growing way too fast! Anyways... here are some of my favorites pictures from today....

4 nights in a row!!!

Ok... so Sat night through last night Zane slept from 10 or 11 till 8am!!! I'm in heaven right now with all this sleep!!! I figured I'd post a few pictures from the past couple of days... not really much to report. We're all doing great! Well with the exception of the head cold that I've had since Sat... and praying that Zane doesn't get! Oh... and I've officially started reading the Twlight series... I'm only a couple of chapters into the first one seeing that I don't have too much free time between Zane and errands and trying to keep our house clean. I think I'm going to wait to watch the movie once I finish the first book. Anyways, hope everyone is doing GREAT!!!

Girls Night

So today we all met at the AMC in Regency for a girls day. We all needed a break from our busy lives and what better way than to just have some girl time! We seen Bride Wars and I must say I really liked it(and I'm sure the guys will be thanking us for not asking them to go see it). There we're a few of us who were in tears at the end. After a quick bathroom break, off to Olive Garden we went.... and the main topic of discussion... Twlight. I haven't seen the movie or read the books but I have to say I will be watching it soon and plan on reading the books too.
The girls

Me and Brittany

Paige and Christina

Tracy and Autumn

Kim and Pam

After finishing dinner we all broke off our separate ways. A group of us ended up heading to Hobby Lobby to see what Christmas items they still had left and ended up playing around in the store a little bit before checking out.

Paige, Christina, Brittany and me

Goofin' off :) Can't take us any where!!

At this point it was around 7pm. We then decided to head back to Brittany's house, I called Dean and asked if him and Zane wanted to meet us there and him and Micheal could hang out while we still hung out. Once Dean and Zane got there we took Zane while they went and grabbed some dinner. Then they decided that they were going to go hunt Wabbits, lol, and they killed 9!!! We (the girls) ended up playing progressive rummy till almost 1am!!! It was get a little competitive there at the end... but it was SOOO much fun!!

Playin' some progressive rummy

Dean going to hunt Wabbits

Zane getting in on the game

I think this is going to have to be a monthly thing. It was so nice to get some much needed time away. I love Zane to dead and for the life of me would never give him back, but I still need some mommy time every once in a while! So those who couldn't make it or didn't want to go... you really missed out on a great time!! You'll have to go with us next month!!!!

Full Night of Sleep!!

First... YEAH!!!! lol! Zane ate last night at 8, fell asleep a little before 10 and slept till 5:30!!! I'm so excited and feel so well rested (for a little while anyways!). On another note. When we got up at 8 this morning, little man had rolled himself over in his crib! This isn't the first time, but it's been a little bit since his last roll over. Oh... and I have to say GOOOOO GATORS!!! We intensely watched the game last night and of course we were yelling at the tv, haha! It was a great game! 2009 National Champs! And you know I had to go and buy a t-shirt today too!! Ok.. well I'm off to eat dinner... Dean cooked tonight... Steak and mac-n-cheese :)

Love you all.... Will update with girls afternoon when I get home :)

Fussy Baby....

Ok, so I had the worst past couple of days with a fussy baby. I just don't get it! He's been so perfect since we've brought him home and now it's like I have a completely different baby! I feel like I'm going to pull my hair out!! So when it looks like it's thinning and I'm always wearing a pony tail you know why, lol! I had a bit of a break down Tues and Dean ended up coming home from work.. I just couldn't handle his crying any more at that point. I know he has bad days too... it just seems like it's lasting forever! Ok.. just had to get that out! Love you guys! the girls night all makes sense now, hu?
