Photo Dump

Here is the long awaited photo post... please forgive us for taking so long. But when you see these pictures you will understand why it took so long...this girl is just too cute to take time away from. As it is, I am doing this one handed with her on my lap helping... and by helping I mean she is holding my other hand and eating it and her own hand.

 I can't decide if I like the black and white or color one better.

Stay tuned for our mommy & me pictures

  1. Love, love, love! :) You have one stunning little girl on your hands!

  2. Dana - HancockHeir: These pictures are adorable! I really like the one with the flower on her head where she is looking straight at the camera! and I LOVE your one month photo - such a cute idea!

  3. I like the B&W one slightly better I think, but they're all so cute. Looks like your hand isn't the only thing she likes to chew on! I bet that phone was tasty.:)

  4. Adorable Gina! Totally adorable!

  5. I love these pictures. Too cute for words.

  6. Aw she is so adorable! Can't wait for the mommy and me pictures. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the comment. Here to follow you back. Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Thanks everyone! We think she is pretty cute but I guess you could consider us a little biased haha
    Dana her face in that one just cracks me up. I wanted to post a bigger version of the one that is my new button but I was having issues and lost patience. Her 1 month picture my mom actually did when she was a newborn too just randomly so I figured it would be a cute one to do each month and see how she grows.
    Sean- I think I like the B&W one just a little better too. And she definitely loves to suck/lick things. I am so glad I invested in a good case for that phone because I imagine that won't be the only time she gets ahold of it lol
    Mary- the mommy and me pics were supposed to come tomorrow but I slacked a little today and now I have to do lesson plans tomorrow so I am free from them Sunday...but maybe I will procrastinate just a little bit and get that post done before I work.

  8. Ahhh.... beautiful! Love, love, LOVE baby pictures... and these are beautiful pics of a beautiful baby! I am a photographer, and I personally love doing a little bit of "selective color" for enhancement... if you know how to do it, you could make most of the photo black and white, and then leave the blanket with some pink in it, and leave some pink in the baby's cheeks... it would look AMAZING!!!

    Don't know about your Photoshop skills, but if you are interested in seeing what it would look like, you can email me at and I could see about maybe doing a little fun editing on it for you! I like doing stuff like that... just makes me smile! :-)

    Anyway, I really stopped by to thank you for dropping by Misadventures in Motherhood and commenting on "I Pee Myself." I love all the comments... they mean so much to me... and I try to get back to people whenever I can! So thank you, and I'm stopping back at your beautiful blog to return the love!

    Oh, and I'm following you too! Love personal blogs with personal stories, and yours just makes me grin from ear to ear!

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
    Smiles, Jenn

  9. I like the black and white one best! Aubs is still waiting on her text Payton!!

  10. Ahh Jenn thanks! I LOVE selective color. I never thought to leave some color in her cheeks! We have aperture for mac right now and I was thinking of getting photoshop elements but I haven't decided yet if I have the patience to learn it. We have a nice entry level dslr and are trying to learn a lot on how to use it. I get so frustrated because we get good pics that I have no idea how we did it and then can't do it again. I am so glad you like our little blog and I am, of course, following yours.

    Amy- Payton said she is working on the text but the phone just tastes so good she can't get the text typed!! Tell Aubs it will be coming someday when she stops eating the phone


Payton loves to hear from you :)
