Beautiful Fall Day

I tend to not have my camera on me as much as I should because it can be so big and cumbersome.  But the other day I had to meet a client at the park for a quick head shot shoot, so I had it on me.  The sunlight was just gorgeous and luckily, Jordan was in a good mood so I took the opportunity to snap some shots my babies.

Reagan is such a good, mature big sister.  She is so helpful, both around the house and with Jordan,who, at 20 months is VERY busy~slash~BRATTY!!!! She has so much more of a strong willed personality than my other two did, complete with tantrums, screaming and kicking!  What's a mom to do? Just laugh at it and march her out of the store with a look on your face that says, yep, I know what you're ALL thinking... :)  I think a lot of it is that she's trying to be more independent and with that comes more messes than I wish to clean and more chasing than I want to do.  But when I give her the length of the leash, she truly is more sweet mannered.  Time for mama to let the little birdie go!

Here's another thing we have to work on, getting rid of the pacifier.  All of my kids were paci babies and I successfully broke them  of it, and it's just harder on me than them.  This was her face after I took it away so it wouldn't be in her mouth for all the photos. :)

Reagan, my compliant child.  She loves the camera, is always ready when I'm like, Reags, over here, mama wants to take your picture. :)

Jordan REALLY loves Reagan.  When she comes home from school Jordan runs up to her, arms open and shouts, "Reagan!!!!"  It's the cutest thing.  And she lifts her up, even though Jordan's about 3/4 as tall as her.  I hope they stay close forever.

That face is TOO funny.  She's like, I'm coming to get ya!

It is VERY rare that I can get a photo of all three kids and I'm so happy I stopped in our neighborhood right before getting home to snap this.  The sun was amazing and Jordan actually stayed in one spot.  She loves her older brother and sister...probably more than me, but I'm ok with that.

When she gives kisses now she says "Mmmmmmmmwuah!!!" It's adorable.
