Baby Mohawks!

For awhile Chase had no hair, but it's finally growing in, so I wanted to see what a baby mohawk would look like on him:

BTW: I think that his hair is going to be dark blonde, but Ian thinks it'll be brown.

Here is Jayci, who we think Chase looks a bit like:

We went to Freestone Park this afternoon, but they didn't have baby swings (!) and it was too humid for poor little Chase. I did get a couple of pics:

Chase didn't really like the grass. The moment his dad put him down he screamed. It was kind of funny, but I felt bad at the same time. He was eyeing the ducks though. He's such a good little model! :)
SO I went to orientation for Whole Foods on Friday. It's going to be awesome! The store is going to be 60,000 sq. ft. which is ginormous! I'm actually really excited for this.
Also....if anyone wants some pictures of their babies, themselves, or their families FOR FREE please please please call me or email me (purplellama61@yahoo.com). I really would love to take pics for anyone AND I really need the experience to build up my portfolio. THANKS!

Outdoor Excursion

I decided that I wanted some pictures of Chase in natural light, so we went to the front yard. It was way way hot. Like, 110 degrees! So, we only got to stay outside for 5 or 10 minutes. I didn't want my little white baby to melt. Nonetheless, I got some good ones:

It don't lie

You Will Be a Cool Parent

You seem to naturally know a lot about parenting, and you know what kids need.
You can tell when it's time to let kids off the hook, and when it's time to lay down the law.
While your parenting is modern and hip, it's not over the top.
You know that there's nothing cool about a parent who acts like a teenager... or a drill sergeant!

I'm so happy to say that I'm finally done at Scottsdale Healthcare. Now on to Wholefoods Market! I'm so excited to be working for a laid back company. I get to wear whatever I want. Which is ├╝ber rad. I will miss my friends at SHC, mostly Ben, but at least Molly is going with me to Wholefoods.

SO we had my grandma's 60th B-day party. It was originally planned as a surprise party, but things change. It was fun, she got some nice gifts, and I got some sweet pictures.

It's Been So Long

It's been awhile since I've updated. Not much has been happening. Chase is getting bigger everyday and he's almost crawling! We really need to baby-proof our condo. There's really not much else to tell. Just working and chilling with the peeps.

(Almost)Girls Night Out!

So, yesterday was Heather's birthday, and we decided that we were going to go to the hookah bar, then back to my house for drinks. It was only Heather, Ian and I at the hookah bar, but Carly came over to my house afterwards. We had so much fun. I almost forgot how much fun it is to hang out with these girls! I hope that we do it again soon! Not too soon though, cause my head hurts today.

I love taking pictures, so I was tremendously flattered when someone offered to pay me to take pictures of her child! WOW! I also decided that I would like to start scrappin' again. For now, here are more pictures of my bee bee:
