Hey! Check out my smokin' ass! And extra chins!!!

Very lovely. Mia's going to be lucky to be able to look back at these great images.

Precious...once again! :-)

Love the shots. You know it all starts here. I swear all the early book reading, has helped my son so much. He's in G.A.T.E. for language arts.... this is the way to push Mia ahead. Also it's the way to make sure the bond is strong. WTG mom and dad.

First, Chris awesome photos as usual.. thank you for honoring my demand request.

Mrs Catus.. Shut up, what extra chin? Motherhood suits you :)

Little Golden Books are the best! I collect them. Nice photo stream too :-)

Can I hire you to take pictures so I have actual proof that I am in fact a mother? All of these beautiful photos you take of your family make me insanely jealous!

Posted by: Monica at October 16, 2005 6:44 PM

Awww -that's adorable!

I just noticed that Mia looks like a little determined samurai in the third picture. Like she's gonna go all batshit on that book.

And Beth, hush. You're gorgeous.

Nice montage. I especially like the last photo... the kiss on the forehead. Very endearing.

I'm glad you kept your arsewipe head out of the picture so we could enjoy mom and baby.

I will also be glad when other posters (i.e., women-folk) stop using the term, "awwww" in their effort to communicate some sort of cutsey-wootsie sweet approval of whatever you post. AHHHH! Calgon, take me away!

Blog on!

gorgeous photos. love the black and white and the composition.

and well, having beautiful subjects doesn't hurt either. (hear that beth, you're beautiful. no multiple chins on you...so bah!) ;)

That's a little golden book title isn't it? I'm pretty sure I remember it from when I was kid :) We need to start collecting books for as our-as-yet-undetermined offspring to be had at some future date :).

Gorgeous pics.

Adorable! And, Beth, please -- you look fabulous. My lord, I didn't look like that two YEARS after having my babies, forget two MONTHS!

Posted by: Mary at October 17, 2005 12:37 AM

aww how adorable!

Posted by: angel at October 17, 2005 1:09 AM

beautiful photos! i was wondering if you'd share what technique in photoshop (or other photo editing program) you use to change your photos to black and white.

it appears that Ms. Cactus spent the entire day reading the Shy Little Kitten to Baby Cactus.

Great photos. You have a beautiful family.

Ok, it's just me, Kate, catching up...and this isn't the first time I have seen you take lovely pics and string them side by side like that....that's a photoshop thing isn't it? Because you know I of course can't get the hang of that....how did you do that mister??? And don't say photoshop! :)

Posted by: Kate at October 18, 2005 2:32 AM

You really know how to capture a moment with a camera. Awesome pictures and a couple awesome girls you have there!

Posted by: VirgoJen at October 19, 2005 12:48 PM

Mind if I borrow you from Beth when I have the baby... your pictures are always so incredible! ;) These are so sweet... your girls are adorable!

I love the look of concentration on Mia's face in the third picture.
