One Year Photos at last

As I browsed thru Zeke's 1 year photos, which finally arrived today (mind you, he is now 16 months old), the thought that kept coming to mind over and over again was "Man, can my kid do a LOT with his eyebrows or what?"

So here ya go, mom, even MORE eye candy for you.

And just a warning: The thought that may come to your mind browsing thru these photos is "Is this child perpetually concerned or what?" The answer, dear reader, is yes, yes he is.

In OTHER news, things are really beginning to look up around here. Not only have I won a 40 dollar gift certificate to buy a new baby carrier, BUT I also won a 200 dollar gift certificate to a local photography place (christmas photo's here we come!). I never win anything. Now we just need to get the news that Josh got the promotion he wants.

The OTHER other news, that isnt quite so exciting...Blueberry is very stubbornly breech (head up). I'm only 28 weeks so my midwife isnt concerned yet. But I will admit it. I am concerned. I want this baby to flip around please! Plan A is to talk to Cara (my yoga instructor) and do some positions this month mostly so I feel like I'm doing something. Plan B is if baby is still breech next month Cathy (my midwife) wants me to try some acupressure beads she has. I do NOT want to have to resort to an external version (painful procedure where a doctor basically shoves your baby into the correct, head down, position) but I WILL if it means avoiding a C-section. Uhhggg....flip around baby! Anyone have advice?

Also, my WFDW post will be coming later today, as its still in the oven, lol.

I looked into acupuncture with the girls to see if that would help to turn them, but with twins it's just as likely you turn both of them. :(

I saw that you won from MckMama, where else did you win? Who's the photographer?! And I can't believe you are just now getting those pictures back! That is absurd!

Trippleaaa said...

I agree with Kim, 4 months is RIDICULOUS! No offense, but maybe find a new photographer? They are however, adorable. So, who is the picture win from? Do you have a blog... I wanna see! I love checking out photography blogs!

Holly said...

Wow! I can't believe you just got those. Glad I didn't end up ordering any. You did get a lot more than I did. Not sure what was up there, we both paid the same amount. Oh well, what you did get is cute.

We are going on Saturday for one year pictures. I can't wait!

aw so jealous you won from mckmama.. i didnt even notice that it was someone i knew who won..so i guess that cancels out my jealousy :) I hope you don't have to do a version.. They tried with Jaeden and it hurt like hell and it wasn't sucessful unfortunately. Ive heard that sometimes there are chiropractors that know some tricks to get baby to flip on its own.. Maybe something to look into? Heres to hoping blueberry flips!

Beautiful photos! My Story also uses the eyebrow-intense-stare. Love it!

Sarah said...

You should check out spinningbabies.com. They have a bunch of exercises and stuff to get babies to turn. Good luck! (Cute pictures too!)

Kait T said...

Yes, I've done the external flipping as well. So incredibly painful. I'd rather have a c-section. heh

Sarah- spinning babies is a great idea, thanks.

Ashley- no, I will never ever use that photographer again, for many reasons.

Ashely AND Kim- The photographer is Anastasias. Their website is under construction but they have a mall kiosk you may have seen. They look pretty good, I am excited!

Kay said...

What beautiful pictures! Your son really is absolutely adorable. Can't wait for WFDW-- seriously, you should compile all those into a cookbook and sell it. You'd make a killing.
