6 Month Photo Shoot

A few days before Mike left we had our pictures taken with an awesome photographer in the area, Kate Feider -- http://www.katefeiderphotography.com/ . We just got our previews and i think they are so cute. There are some great pictures of Mike with the babies and i also think its funny that the babies were so skeptical of the whole photo shoot--neither one was in a bad mood, it was just a new experience and they weren't willing to smile. She pretty much captured their true selves!

Father's Day

Ironically enough, Mike's first Father's Day was also his Deployment Day. We had to get up super early to get ready and be on base by 5:30 am. We didn't end up staying on base long since we seriously upset the babies schedule by waking them up so early. It didn't take long before they were very cranky and in all honestly hanging around playing the Army's Hurry-up and Wait game is torture. So we got Daddy there on time to report and then we went off on our on and said our goodbyes.

We did get some good pics-

Daddy and his babies on Father's Day Daddy and a tired NorabirdHolden was in a pretty good mood for a while....he was giggling at Daddy right before we left*kisses*

Last Night with Daddy

We really had a nice day together--tried to spend as much family time together as possible. If i could have, I would have held on to that day forever. Nighttime was sweet but a bit rough too. Seeing Mike bathe, read and put them down for the last time was hard to stomach. It was such an emotional time for us and then the babies had no idea what was going on--which is for the best i know.

Here's a funny of Mike and Holden...trying to be discreet :)

Whatever Floats Your Boat!

Babies got a new float..and it's pretty awesome! --so awesome that we ordered one more in a froggy shape for Holden. For now they both fit in together but i doubt that will work for too much longer!

Anyway this is what we did on Daddy's last day with us--it was a beautiful day and we had a lot of fun. These pictures are some of my all time faves!
