Sneak Peek: Little Vivian

I had the pleasure today of spending a couple hours with my friend, Meri, and the newest little addition to her family... Vivian. I've not gone through all the pictures yet, but randomly grabbed 2 to share today.

Isn't she beautiful at just 12 days old? Love all her hair. Makes me look forward to my little man (although if the pattern continues, he'll be bald) coming in about 3 1/2 months... yes, even with the pee that landed on my arm today. ;) Thank you, Jen, for watching and feeding the rugrats!

And very much off topic, I have decided to do another photography project this year... last year it was to take a picture a day and post it to my blog. I did pretty good, although after 3 months, it was not daily. ;) I'm thinking that was a lot to take on, however... So this year I have decided to take one "self-portrait" a week. 52 pictures compared to 366 (leap year) last year seems like a breeze. Plus, I am never in photos and I really want that to change. My kids need proof that there was actually a mother there in all their years growing up. :P I don't know if I'll share every time I take my SP picture (honestly, after not many pics of me, that number is slightly embarrassing!), but I'll share what I took for this week which is actually week 3 for the year:

As you can see, I'm going to get creative. My explanation: I am a Diet Pepsi drinker... and the only adjustment to this love during pregnancy is to switch to caffeine free. At least I attempt to lessen the evil, right? ;)

No rules, just that a part of me is in each shot. Even if it's just "me" bokeh like today. ;)

Jen Bird said... and your diet pepsi! That's hillarious! And oh, Vivian, is SOO sweet!

Ah, my diet pepsi friend...what can I say, we can't get enough. :) That gold can does make me cringe a bit. Maybe its all the mind.

that's funny Meghan. I tried so hard not to drink dr. pepper while pregnant. The caffeine free didn't cut it for me. By 7 months, I had enough and HAD to take a sip! Heaven...

What a creative pregnancy shot! I love it. You'll love the memories of that too. By the way, I'm SO excited for you and your baby boy! I knew all along it was going to be a boy :)
