What nummy eyes you have

Ah, cousins.

While they might not be quite old enough to play together yet, they’re still young enough for us to make them lay on the bed together for photo shoots. And Amelia is definitely old enough to think that she should eat Nathan.

Mmm, Nathan, your eyes wook so nummy.

And your hand wooks so nummy….

And your feets wook SO nummy!

Oh sweet cousin, eben your shirt is nummy….


Just c’mere and wets me eats you…and eberyfing will be fine.

Embrace the Camera. Edition: 6 months

We almost missed Embrace the Camera today, but we made it. It’s still Thursday for a few more hours.

Right? I’m pretty sure it’s Thursday. Oh well, let’s just go with it.

Aww, what a cute little family. Only 1 week before she’s 7 months old, I’m getting around to posting Amelia’s 6 month photos. You’re welcome. Special thanks to Clore Photography for the photos!

Auntie Em

Amelia loves her Auntie Emma. Thanks to a fortuitous turn of events, Grammy, Auntie Emma, and Uncle Nate have landed here in Nashville. If you thought the child was spoiled before, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

The weather was beautiful here today, so we spent some time outside on the picnic blanket. baby plays outside

Everything is all fun and games…

…until it’s not.

Embrace the Camera. Edition: Random

I know, I know, it’s another babywearing photo. Or two. But while I’ve been busy launching As You Stitch {Baby}, Amelia has been busy working on her baby modeling portfolio.

She knows the camera loves her.  Thanks to our crack team of producers (my Mom), business managers (Me), baby models (Amelia), and photographers (Clore Photography and Jon Van Gilder Photography) we already have our first sale! And on the first official day of business too.

Phew. I’m glad it’s over. It’s been a crazy whirlwind leading up to this point, but I think we’re over the hump now. Most of the kinks are worked out and we are ready for business!

And now, just for fun, check out Amelia’s toe-grabbin’ skills. No, I don’t have any idea how she can stretch like that either. Babies are so flexible. She is literally folded in half.

Ah, gums. Who doesn’t love a little baby gummy smile? No teeth yet. Who needs em. Not us, that’s for sure.

Embrace the Camera. Edition: Grammy

Grammy (my mom) and Auntie Emma (my little sister) were in town this week, and boy did our baby get spoiled. She didn’t mind though. Yesterday morning I snapped a few photos of Amelia and her Grammy getting in some snuggle time. It was early – Amelia was still in her favorite ducky jams.

I hope one day Amelia will love looking at these pictures of herself with her grandmother. I know I love seeing pictures of myself with my grandparents.

Embrace the Camera is all about getting in front of the camera with your kids (or grandkids). Join the fun over at the Anderson Family Crew

Happy Thursday, y’all!

Embrace the Camera. Edition: Daddy Time

I love Dave’s days off. I’m pretty sure Amelia does too. I went looking for these two yesterday and found them like this. Private concert.  Amelia was fascinated by the guitar.

Dangit, she saw me.

Are you seeing those chubby arms, people? Yesterday was the first time Amelia wore short sleeves and it was so strange to see her arms! They are SO soft and pudgy.

Practicing sitting up. And grabbing for the camera. She’s getting better at both.

Eyes crossed in concentration. It takes a lot of effort to sit up, hold a teething ring in your mouth, AND reach for the camera at the same time. Our girl’s got skills.

Embrace the Camera. Edition: Fresh Out of the Oven

The other day while attempting to organize our bajillions of pictures of Amelia, I found these. I don’t know who took them, or even whose camera they are from. But this is how I found them. In this order.

One minute she’s on the inside (or “in the clink”) as Dave likes to call it, the next she’s in our arms. Although I’m pretty sure at least 3 hours of grueling labor passed in between the first two photos, it’s still kinda crazy to see them in sequence.

5 months old

It’s that time again. Monthly baby photos. She’s 5 months old. Which is hard to believe, since I swear she was just born last week.

At 5 months old Ameila

  • Loves to put everything in her mouth
  • Hates when she can’t fit everything in her mouth
  • Loves to be outside
  • Hates to ride in the car
  • Loves to play with Mama’s old baby doll
  • Hates to stay awake for more than 2 hours at a time
  • Loves to hear us sing silly songs
  • Hates to be left alone for more than 3 minutes
  • Loves to play on her tummy
  • Loves loud sloppy kisses
  • Loves to chew on her first two fingers

And of course, she loves Mama and Daddy more than anything.

Which works out nicely, because we love her more than everything.

Embrace the Camera. Edition: Outside for Life!

Our little munchkin loves to be outside, and this mama couldn’t be happier about that. Thankfully the weather has been cooperating with her demands and we’ve been able to spend quite a bit of time outside. She doesn’t care if we’re strolling, playing on a blanket or even just standing still….as long as we’re doing it outside she is more than fine with it. Which is quite a difference to how she feels about most things that happen inside.

Daddy was home yesterday and snapped a few pics of us playing in the backyard. This was her first time on the ground. Not the floor, the real ground. Of course, no grass for her yet. She chilled out on a vintage blanket that used to be Daddy’s. Is 27 years old vintage? Probably not. But “vintage blanket” sounds so much cooler than “old blanket.” And yes, that’s a moving blanket under the baby blanket. The ground today was kind of, well…damp.
