Mommy-Ashy Weekend

This weekend Emy and Steve went to Kansas to visit friends and see the TCU/KU football game. They left Thursday morning which meant that Ashton and I had a long weekend together. (By the way, Ashton has been saying "Emy on airplane. Daddy on airplane" all weekend long. It has been super cute.)


Can I just tell you how easy it is to have only one child??? Oh my word, this weekend has been like a vacation. Anyways, I have not done a very good job of capturing Ash lately so I made a point to shoot all weekend. I feel like these images put together a perfect picture of sweet Ash at this age.

Thursday morning our new nanny came to stay with Ash while I took Emy and Steve to the airport and then went to Panera to get some work done. He did great and was exhausted when I got home. After his nap, he had his usual snack time consisting of gummy fruit snacks and goldfish. 2012-09-15_018 2012-09-15_019 2012-09-15_020 2012-09-15_022

This morning we played when Ash woke up. This was a nice change of pace because normally we are rushing out the door for one reason or another. Not today! 2012-09-15_023 2012-09-15_024 2012-09-15_014

The weather was cooler than normal and overcast, so Ashton and I got out our jeans and went to the zoo. I knew I want to try to get normal "zoo" pictures but I also made an effort to get some two-year portrait-type shots. That was a huge failure. I cannot get portrait shots of my own children. I need to leave that job to other professionals. 2012-09-15_026 2012-09-15_025 2012-09-15_027 2012-09-15_028 2012-09-15_029 2012-09-15_013 2012-09-15_015 2012-09-15_012 2012-09-15_016

When we got home from the zoo it was almost naptime. Ashton cuddled up on the couch with his "ba" and all of his snuggle friends to watch Curious George. 2012-09-15_030 2012-09-15_031 2012-09-15_032 2012-09-15_017
