baby girl

this is my baby girl and she is now nine months. she is such a sweetie pie - so happy and easy-going. ryan is now crawling all over the place and pulling herself up. jerry is convinced that she will walk by his birthday (about a month away) but i am hoping that she waits a bit longer. happy nine month birthday baby! (just a side note about the glasses - we get a zillion comments on a daily basis so here is the scoop. ryan has genetic esotropia which means that she has a weak eye muscle. most people use the term 'lazy eye'. she will turn the weak eye in so she can focus with the stronger eye. the glasses keep her eyes straight by helping her see better with both eyes. if the eye is not corrected, the brain may eventually turn off the weak eye which is why glasses are needed. she will need to wear glasses until she is 10 or so and then we will try to taper off the prescription. at that point, there is a 50% chance that she will still need glasses. who knows what new technology or procedures they will come up with in the next ten years? in addition, she could choose to wear contacts as a teenager. personally, i think there are some super stylish glasses out there.)

Hi Loren. It's Jamie Lawler - Dana's friend from WAY back when. I got in touch with Dana and it was so fun to hear about all that's going on in your family. Your kids are beautiful as is your photography.

Photography has also become a passion of mine. I hope you don't mind if I follow along with your blog. I thought I'd leave this comment so as not to be the blog 'stalker'.

The site looks beautiful and the photos are fabulous. Good luck with everything!
