The Baxter's Meet Lily!

This weekend, Aunt Carrie, Uncle Ryan, and Carson braved the lengthy road trip from Frisco to Lafayette to meet Lily.  As you can imagine Lily was pretty much a bump on a log still being so young, but Carson was quite the entertainment as it was the first time we got to see him crawl in person.  Will was particularly enthralled with Carson, probably thinking that he was way more fun than Lily whose favorite activities are eating, sleeping, and pooping.  We were especially excited to witness Carson's first festival experience as it was Festival International de Louisiane this weekend.  We had a great visit and can't wait to see the Baxter's again very soon!
Yay for beautiful babies

These two are trouble

Loving me some Carson hugs

Pure sweetness.  (Excuse my face.  I was clearly moved by the gesture.)

Memories being made

Will sure does love cuddling with his little sister, and Lily sure loves watching her big brother play.

Daddy's New Model

For my 31st birthday I decided to get something that I could really use a lot both immediately and over the next several years. Seeing as I haven't had much experience in portrait photography and frankly have inadequate equipment for it, I chose to get a new Canon external flash for my camera. This way I can take tons and tons of photos of my new baby girl. So far, she's been a great model... hardly any diva qualities what so ever. I'm looking forward to photographing her and her brother with my new toy. Here are a couple shots from our first photo shoot with the new flash.

She slept for nearly the whole photo shoot...
Except for this one photo.
