So Much For Getting Back in the Habit!

Oh well. I really do have the best of excuses for neglecting the blog this time!

Sam is here!

He is about 2.5 weeks old now and weighs 8 lbs. 1 oz.! (Up 2 oz. from his birth weight!) Plus, he's a redhead!

See? His hair has actually grown a lot since I took that picture last week. We'll have to take another one soon!

We are all having a good time and I am squeezing this post in before he really wakes up and demands our attention again. Right now he's just cooing to let us know we need to start thinking about it. He eases us into things; he's a good baby like that.

Awwww...doesn't he just look like the sweetest baby ever? He totally is.

There will be PLENTY more pictures to come, including some of his now-completed nursery. It's puppy dogs, and his aunt and daddy worked really hard on it. (They took care of all the painting projects. Almost everything needed painting!) We were waiting for his chair to come in until a week or so ago, but it's here now and getting used quite a lot for feeding and cuddling and napping. And forehead kisses. Lots of forehead kisses happening in that rocker! One day Sam won't let me do that anymore so I'm trying to get as many in now as I can!

Well Hello There...

...My! It's been a long, long time.

How am I doin'?

Oh, I guess I'm doin' fine.

(annnnd if you understood that weirdness, then let's be best friends!)

Wowsa! It has been a long time since I sat down to write! Ya want to know why?

Well I got real sick. But not in a sad way! I was sick for about a million years...and/or three months. Don't worry, it went away pretty much the day my second trimester started!

I think pretty much everyone knows by now that I am pregnant and actually happen to be realllly close to having our first baby. And by realllly close, I mean about three days. Or ten if Baby Boy Roberts decides he is just too comfy to worry about things like being born next week.

See how close?!

Hopefully I will have newborn pictures for you very soon! Until then, I decided that I just had to get something posted so that I get back in the habit! I haven't had the morning sickness excuse in a long time, but I have had other things going on that took my attention.

Turning a guest room into a nursery, for one. (I'll show you when it's all the way done! We're still waiting on a chair!) Shooting & editing several weddings, which I'll be sharing in between baby pictures over the next few weeks. Getting things with Jenni Roberts settled so that "maternity leave" will be easier. Quitting my day job. That's right! I am a full-time photographer now. I looove it, and I will tell you more about that later, too!

So basically what this turned out to be was a teaser post! Sorry about that! It was not my intention when I started! But stay tuned! LOTS of photos and good things to share soon!

In the meantime, you can visit my new blog! (Which has also been taking a significant bit of my time!) It's called The Local, and I'm writing it for KOKE FM. "The Local" seemed appropriate since KOKE is the only locally-owned FM station in Austin anymore. That's where you will find all my live music shots as well as fun things to do around Austin. Writing that one has been a lot of fun and something different for me to try out, but I'm not ready to abandon Jifferdoodle either! So for now, I'll be doing both, and we'll just see how it goes!

Whew! Okay! Ice broken...habit reinstated! See you next time with a lot more pictures!

Love y'all,
