And so on and so forth.

My photography website it up! Not really sure about a plan of action for marketing or anything formal and business-y like that, but I am enjoying this little hobby of mine and THAT is what matters.

I had an obvious lack of pictures of Jack taken by me, so I took him out the other day. He did so well taking direction and working for the camera. Here are just a few of my favorites... I am saving one for his birthday letter this year. Cannot believe he is turning five! Just doesn't seem possible.

Nolan's first birthday was delightful. He thoroughly enjoyed himself, and made out like a little bandit with new bath toys, clothes, books, etc. Just when I thought we had every toy possible...
{"Barf Vader"... hamming it up for the camera!}
{He was so tired by the end, but I had to get a mommy/baby pic}

Warren and Jack are down in P-town, visiting their Grandparents this weekend. So, I only have one baby and am making the most of the chance to get some things done. Going to get Jack's school supplies, go look at a new lens (yay!!!), take some portraits of a pair of adorable brothers that live in our neighborhood... and just enjoy a little bit less noise until tomorrow.

I have so many things I could say... more than a few posts in draft, saved and incomplete. And instead of working to finish and publish those, in fact, instead of doing anything that resembles productive and sensible, I present to you...

...the naked baby on the sidewalk post (also known as the N.B.O.T.S post)

Without further adieu.

{Let the cuteness roll...}

{Hiney in the air!}

{A quick smile for the Mama-razzi!}

{Contemplating his next move...}

{Oh yeah, that was a bold move!}

{"I know, I am soooo cool."}

{Digging in the mulch. Duh!} {Flashing some tushy.}
{Bringing some mulch with him.}
{Finally crawling to Mama, who can't resist and gladly hands the camera off to Daddy.}
{I love me some N.B.O.T.S.!}

I know, I have a problem. But they grow so quickly. And those dimpled cheeks and distended belly vanish before you can hardly get in 3,000 kisses on each smooshy part.

Secured the domain name, now just gotta design and build the actual website!

Ordered business cards with this logo:

Jotting down lists and lists of ideas for all kinds of settings and poses for maternity, family, etc.

Taking a little girl's pictures this evening... in a TUTU I bought! Can't wait!

Yesterday, Nolan really started to walk. And I started to cry. Warren noticed and came to comfort me... he gets it, and I love him for that.

He is such a neat kid! And have I mentioned that he loves Legos...

Nolan's birthday party was perfect. I have lots of pictures to wade through, but somehow, I'd rather look at these two of Jack from this morning... these eyes!

We are having a lazy day. Still in pajamas, in fact. Planning to deliver thank-you cards, hit up a park, and eat dinner out since Bryan has softball tonight.

Nolan had his one year check up yesterday. He is the picture of health, even at a slight 17 pounds. So, we are feeding him protein shakes, which he seems to like okay since it is chocolate flavored.

So... I have been, like, THE worst blogger ever.

For anyone still checking in here, sorry. I have been BUSY. We have had a few house projects going on, Warren had his Lego Engineering camp last week, and I have been working to kind of maybe just a little start a PHOTOGRAPHY business! Yay! I'll unveil the name and all that good stuff hopefully soon.

And in case that hasn't been enough to keep me totally running around like a mad woman, I have also been planning this little Angel's birthday party:

Marinating fajita meet as we speak for the friends and neighbors that are stopping by for a casual, kind of last minute put together of a celebration of sorts. We usually don't make a big to do over the first birthday, so this is a little change of pace. Oh and cookie dough is refrigerating for these awesome Playdoh cookies I have been wanting to try for a long time. Will share the recipe and pictures... sometime! Ha!

I cannot believe Nolan is one. I know it is beyond cliche to say that, but it is my true sentiment. This past year has gone by in a blink. And the birthday parties are becoming much more frequent now with three! Here is little Noli sleeping on his Aunt Jenny's chest last month at Warren's birthday party {Aren't they a pair?}:

So glad a few of the home improvement projects we have been working on are mostly done! Whew! My mom and sister are coming to stay with us for a week next month to get my sister settled in for College about an hour from us. Yay!

"It's okay, Noli, I got ya."

Just in case Nolan was feeling a little insecure being set on a tree stump by his camera wielding momma... he's got two big brothers to reassure him that he's in good hands.

Here are a couple of my other favorites from this little impromptu photo session in the woods on 4th of July, a day filled with multiple BBQ's and enough outdoor play to satisfy even three little boys' love of all things squirt guns and rowdy.

Yep, these three were crashed out by 8:30 and never even heard a firework, which turned out just fine since we had torrential sideways rain that made for a perfect cozy sleep to end a very fun day.

I know I am biased here, but these are some handsome boys!

Oh and I may never get pictures done at a cheesey studio again... loving outdoor pictures of my guys looking at their goofball daddy much better!

What do you think...

...he whispered in his baby brother's ear?
