Busy Busy Busy

Roctober is upon us!
I will embrace every single day of this month down to its ghoulish end!

I hate the excuse of busyness. I think it is lame, in spite of that, I have been using that excuse a lot lately which now makes me lame! I apologize.

With the excuse of busyness comes the very joyous report that my photography business is really starting to thrive. I will be taking the school portraits for BellaRose's school, which means not your typical posed, faux background, school pictures. Que Angels singing on high!

Also these little people below are keeping me on my toes. One thing you don't want to do is mess with Hollings and her food, especially if it looks like a teething biscuit or a graham cracker. Hollings is a crawling machine. I don't remember Rosey crawling this well so young. I fear that Hollings will be walking sooner then we think. She already gets up into pyramid position mid crawl.
Hollings, in these pictures, was sporting Flock of Seagulls hair, and a nice gash on her nose. She daily hits her head and currently has a little unicorn forehead right now. I promise we are good parents.
She is also clapping up a storm. The saddest thing you have ever seen is little bean Hollings crying on the floor clapping. Might as well have your heart broken right then!

Now on to my sweet BellaRosey. I actually don't have too much to report on her. She is in gymnastics which seems to be perfect for her. How could you not love spending more time with Ms. Jaci and of course Will who is now the Big Brother to the sweetest little Baby Jack!
The other day BellaRose was walking around saying "uurrr, frustrasted, uuurrr frustrated, uuuurrr frustrated" in a deep growling voice. I seem to recall myself saying that very thing the day before. Out of the mouth of babes! Also if she does something that she thinks is particularly neat she will ask me "Momma is that amazing?". Do you think I tell her she is amazing too much?

Hollings doing what she does.

Her chocolate brown eyes are so rich I could drink them!

This move is called the mid pyramid pull up.

I was just thinking how beautiful her eyes where!!! Those girls are so great. I

I cant wait to see the school pictures. Rylie had her's last week and I thought of BellaRose last year. In fact I had to get them because of her's. I wanted to have that memory! haha

I love to hear about you and your girls! The are just growing so much! I still can't believe I haven't seen Hollings in person yet. I bet she will walk sooner than BR did. I know I did (since I wanted to do whatever my big brother was doing).. 2nd kids have that tendency to want to be like the first. :)
So glad photography is going well!

Anna Corbin rocks the Flock of Seagulls as well. :o) -- I find that I'm jealous you're doing school pic as BR's school. Chesson had 'picture day' last we'll see how those turn out!

I am SO excited about you doing the school pics. They made an awesome choice and I can't wait to see how they turn out. Major props to you and your booming business! I love these pics you posted cause they are very refreshing and capture your girls so well. Their eyes are heavenly. I really hope Elin has those brown eyes. Oh and the "flock of seagulls" rules.

You aren't lame you probably are just busy and that is good when you have a business!
Glad you are using your free time to raise such awesome little ladies though!

Adam and Annie said...

If Hollings walks before Noah I will DIE!!! =) Your girls are getting prettier by the day. Love all those brown eyed Grant babes!

Margo said...

They are both so gorgeous!! Just like their mama ;) So glad the business is dong so great. You are so talented. CANNOT wait to see the school pictures. Can I send B there so you can take his pictures in the years to come?? :)

awe man, you're way better than I am. I can't believe little Hollings is crawling and pulling up into a pyramid (that picture was adorable)! I'm always wondering about Hollings's milestones because Harper is just two weeks behind, but I think yesterday was the first day she even thought about crawling anywhere.I could see a little gleam in her actual crawling. We'll see how it comes. Maybe it's a first baby thing...
I'm so proud of your business. You do beautiful work and your children are beautiful to boot!

Precious girls. So glad people are finding out about the best photographer, you work so hard and deserve all the business you're getting! Love those moments and memories of your girls, the mid pyramid thing is hilarious and brs eyes are so drinkable.
