Almost two and other random pictures

Monday, 31 March 2008

It's hard to believe that Ava is almost two years old. This picture was a complete fluke. I was chasing Ava with the camera and we were playing a little game. She was trying to get the camera, and I was lucky enough to get this shot less than two weeks before her second birthday. If she ever asks, this was totally intentional and this was her response to me asking her "how many" she is...



Sure she looks innocent, but five seconds later she tried to run over the dog...



Ethan on the left in blue and Owen on the right in brown...



Surrounded by snuggly little babies, a remote control and scrapbook magazines - what could top this?



A snapshot of Ethan a.k.a. Snugglebear as my sister calls him...



Owen a.k.a. Captain Kissy Face also named by my sister...

Hanging out with Ava

Sunday, 30 March 2008

The boys are still sleeping a lot, so I was able to take some pictures of Ava today. She is getting hard to photograph as she has started screaming "no" when she sees me with the camera. Letting her see the picture on the screen afterwards works sometimes, but for the most part the best way to get pictures of her is to distract her and get her laughing. Here are some new ones...

Random shots from the past week

Saturday, 22 March 2008

A new favourite of Ethan...



Another one of Ethan - the overdone but still necessary foot in the hand shot...



Another one of Ethan...



Ethan again (Owen hasn't been very cooperative for pictures this week)...



The other night when Ava went to bed she asked me if Owen could lie down with her for a bit...



A picture I took of Owen yesterday. The jury is still out on this one. I know where I wanted to go with this shot and never quite got there...

Almost two

Wednesday, 19 March 2008

A quick picture of Ava from earlier this week. At two years old she has quite the little personality. She talks up a storm and is very animated. I have no idea what she said to me here, but I am sure it was quite the story.

Heartbreaker & stud muffin

Sunday, 16 March 2008

Here are some new pictures from yesterday. I dusted off my studio equipment after letting it collect dust since the summer. I had forgotten how much fun they are but what a pain they are to set up!

Anyway, I'm happy with the pictures, but I wish I had gotten Jason to change his shirt first... Oh well - I can fix it in photoshop, but I can't be bothered right now.

Ethan in his Heartbreaker jumpsuit (thanks Aunt Shannon)...



Owen in his Stud Muffin onesie and khaki pants ensemble (thanks Auntie M and Grandma McDougall)...



This picture reminds me of old studio shots from the days of Cary Grant and Clark Gable. Maybe Owen will be our star...



We are getting a lot of these looks lately as the boys are starting to focus. They are starting to pay attention when you talk to them resulting in a lot of these funny little looks, especially from Ethan. 95% of the pictures I took of him yesterday look just like this...



Thanks for looking!

Our three under two

Wednesday, 12 March 2008

Here are some recent shots. Enjoy!

Ava playing with Owen this afternoon...



Ethan now weighing in at 7 lbs 1 oz ...



Owen now weighing in at 6 lbs 5-1/2 oz...



Owen's foot (as an aside, somebody asked me if identical twins have the same fingerprints - it turns out that although there are similarities, they do not have identical fingerprints)...



Ava and Owen...



Mr. Ethan...



Owen's little chicken legs and first shoes...



Thanks for looking!

The artist

Monday, 10 March 2008

Here are some pictures from yesterday. Ava and I were having some fun finger painting. She was a disaster by the time we were done, but she had fun and the paint didn't take long to cleanup.

Three monkeys

Saturday, 8 March 2008

Here are a few pictures from today. Ethan is in green and Owen is in yellow. As you can see, Jason and I are now outnumbered.

Friday was my first time getting three kids packed up to leave the house. It went pretty smoothly. Ava went to the babysitter and the boys went with my sister and I to Guelph for an appointment and to do errands. Do you have any idea how much you get stared at when you are carting twins around? It was very bizarre.

The big sister

Thursday, 6 March 2008

Although I have taken a million pictures, I haven't had much time to do anything with them! Here are some pictures from the weekend. As you can see, Ava is quite fond of her little brothers...
