I HAVE been doing stuff other than photography. Here's a real post for you guys. 

I've been having a lot of fun with friends at playdates and girls nights. Yeah, I think I've lost my want to blog. So, here are some pictures that I stole from Jenn. See... I have a HUGE camera, and it's annoying taking it anywhere besides photoshoots. Because of that, I never take any pictures when I do something fun, hence, the lack of blogging about real things. Anyway, thanks Jenn for the pictures and having a small camera to carry around. 

This was at girls night. We went to raging waters, cafe med to eat, and then slept over at talitha's house. Ah, you're never too old for a sleep over. 
This is us at the splash pool in Daybreak. I like to mix it up a bit. One day at the beach, one day at the East Lake pool, and another day at the splash pool. I'll even throw in Seven Peaks once in a while. I know, I'm crazy like that. 
Play group at the Gateway. We had such a good turnout, it was fun. Claire did NOT like me running through the water with her in my arms. I thought if I forced her into it she'd end up liking it. Turns out that's not the way to go.

So I plan on doing two things in the very near future. 

1. Starting to potty train Claire. She gets the concept, she's extremely smart, I think she'll get it pretty fast. Any advice on the best way to do this? I've thought about doing the no pants all day every day until she gets it. Is there a better way?

2. Putting her in a "big girl" bed. I'm afraid of her getting out of her bed and then crying a ton 'cause she can't get out of her room. Now, let me tell you, she's VERRRRRY stubborn when she wants to be so letting her cry on the floor in her room isn't an option. She would never stop. Trust me. So any advice on that? 

I'm not sure exactly when I want to start these next big steps in her life, but I know it's going to be soon and I'd love any advice anyone has. Thank you so much!

Please check these out. I'm very excited about how these turned out. I was soooo nervous because she's using them for her wedding and tons of people will be seeing them, but now my nerves have all calmed down and now I'm just excited!
