Baby Bodhi

just like that we are a family of four. kingston is beyond thrilled and mama and dad are smitten with this little nugget. two weeks ago we welcomed baby bodhi and could not be happier. he poops, pees and sleeps an awful lot, but we still like him. kingston has been reading to him, holding him and helping out when mama needs a wet cloth, diaper or binkie. kingston is really taking his big brother roll to the next level which makes my heart skip a beat. i forgot how wonderful it is to have a newborn. and one that sleeps well is a total bonus. bodhi you are a dream.

Base Camp Lately: Quality Time Pre New Arrival

the week before the new baby arrived i attempted to spend as much quality time as possible with my two favorite guys. keith and i even snuck in a date night to newport for dinner, walking thames street and ice cream. i love ice cream but i do miss a good cocktail. also, i have been taking the cub the out as much as possible too. mostly morning since i usually have to get my feet up by early afternoon. he has been so good about letting me rest and playing on his own. he is going to make the best big brother. okay baby... i think we are finally ready for your arrival. now for a little bounce on the bed to get things moving.

Base Camp Lately: Me, My Cub and a 39 Week Baby Bump

i have all of a sudden felt guilty for not documenting this pregnancy as i did the first so in these last few week i have been snapping away. kingston has been my loyal assistant which has added an interesting complexity to the process as you can imagine. we have to compromise over control of the the camera remote and height of the camera stand. he like to be the subject and then switch to the photographer. at first it was hard for me to let him lead the process. but finally i came to the realization that i was going to have to go with the flow on this one. the images come out far from perfect but we have a good time and that is all that matters.
