Cody insists that Kapri is much happier with her pants off (I think this is his life's motto).. and actually he's right. She'll be fussy and the moment you take her pants off she's happy as a bumble bee. Every kid goes through a naked stage, right? I guess she's just starting young.

So.. Shonni and I are always coming up with ideas for pictures to take. I'll post some pics so you have an idea of our craziness. The other day we decided to take pics of the girls in their matching purple pajamas. Here's the deal, Addison is Miss "move me around, flip me upside down, twirl me in circles and I'll still be good" baby. Kapri thinks she is Miss Queen. So pretty much everything revolves around her.. so if she's happy and content we jump on it and take the pics. Well, Kapri ate and decided she wanted to take a nap. Shonni was insisting that we hurry because Addison was going to be going to sleep and she wanted her awake in the pictures. Here's my thoughts.. I would rather have Kapri happy and Addison asleep, than have Kapri crying and Addison awake. Is this selfish? I think not... Shonni disagrees.
Well, Kapri was happy as can be when she woke up for her nap.. so we positioned them and attemped waking Addison up (because of course she had fallen asleep by this point).. it was IMPOSSIBLE. We tried everything to wake her up.. by the time we finally saw a glimpse of her eyeballs Kapri was NOT happy anymore.. hence the crying in some of the pictures. Anyway.. we finally got some good ones, we just don't agree on which picture is the cutest. I say the one where Kapri is smiling and Addison is sleeping, Shonni thinks the one where Kapri's head is slumped over.. and Addison is happy as can be, is the best. Its a dilemma that we can work out, but funny none the less. I know this post is a little sloppy, crazy and doesn't make much sense.. but I just wanted you to feel the way we feel when we're doing these dumb things.
I have come to realize that it would probably be much easier to go to a studio and have someone else take the pictures, but whats the fun in that? Plus we've actually gotten some really good ones!!!
Kapri is kicking happily in her brand new frog and duckie bouncer, and I've sat down with my toast and hot cocoa to write my very first blog. I haven't quite figured out all the knick-knacks, but I figure I can give it a try.
Let me start off by telling you that I AM the funniest person in the world, atleast in my mind. So, humor me. If you think that I would be laughing, please do the honorable thing, laugh with me. If I ask you at a later date if you thought something was funny, LIE TO ME and just say it was. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a little white lie, right?
I really have nothing too exciting to write about today, the most exciting thing that has happened lately was my dog pooping in my shoe.. Full on squatting and taking a dump in my BRAND NEW WHITE TENNIS SHOES!!! Yep, you might ask why I would own and animal that would do such a thing. Well, I can't give you an answer. One minute I want to throw my dogs in the garbage, and the next minute they do something cute enough to get them out of the "dog-house", no pun intended. Wait.. yes a pun was intended, cause that was freaking hilarious!! (Perfect example of a time that you should be laughing along with me!!) I went and bought a brand new pair of the exact same shoes, because there was no way I was going to be walking around in a pooped in shoe, even if it has been cleaned out thoroughly. With my luck, my foot would sweat and the stench would reach out to all corners of the world!!
One more crazy thing that happened to us over the weekend.. we have been casually talking about getting new cars. First it started out with me, I had an HHR. The "Hoodie Hoo Rah". I attemped to go to the dog park with Kapri and the dogs. Here's the problem, Cody, Kapri, me and the dogs, along with a stroller, wouldn't fit in the car. Whats a girl to do? Trade it in for a Mercury Mountaineer, right? So we did. Then Cody decided he hates driving stick in traffic all day, and its a pain to take the guys at work to lunch in a two door. Whats a boy to do? Trade it in for a 4 door Ford Fusion of course. We went to the dealership on Saturday with the intention of "looking" at cars, and left with two. I know its crazy.. but thats how we roll.
