Beauty by Baird

I have been having so much fun doing makeup for Teisha that I have decided to officially start my new business as a freelance makeup artist.  With the help of friends I have decided on the name Beauty by Baird, kinda catchy!  I am in the process of making a website, business cards and updating my portfolio.  I will reveal them when I am done!  Here are a few of my latest photoshoots with Teisha :)

Vacation Time

We just returned from vacation and WOW...I haven't been that relaxed in years!  We have decided that we are going to make a better habit of actually taking time off and enjoying life a little.  The last vacation we had was our honeymoon 4 years ago!!  That was way too long :(

We went to Estes Park, CO for a week.  I was really nervous about Jameson being stuck in a car seat for 10 hours straight but he did absolutely amazing!  He only got fussy twice and that was pretty much because he was tired.  We are truly blessed with such a perfect child, it makes me scared to have another :)  While there we visited Kristen (Sister-in-Law), went shopping, swimming, hiking, walking and just spent a lot of time relaxing.  

Enjoy the pictures!

8 Months Old

How time flies!  Jameson turned 8 months old on September 4th. It is crazy how much he has changed, crawling, talking, clapping, giggling, joking, teeth, table food. Oh did I mention...Sleeping ALL NIGHT!!

There are things about my pre-baby life that I miss.  Of course there is always going to be the something, being able to run a quick errand, sleeping in, going out with the girls, but sacrifices have to be made.  Life is crazy and busy and I have very little time to myself but every time I get stressed about it I just wait for that beautiful smile from my little boy and it is all so worth it.

First Words

Jameson has been babbling the normal things for a while, mama, dada, baba, etc. but never said them purposefully.  I am officially calling his first word "Hi"!  Rae Jean (Grandma) told me that when they were at the doctor office the other day that every time someone walked through the door he would wave and say Hi.  I refused to think that he was really saying Hi because I wanted to hear it first ;)  So that night Jameson and I went outside and sat on the front porch, every time a neighbor walked by he would wave as hard as he could and say "Hi"!  I was thrilled.

He still babbles mama and dada (mostly dada :-( )and I'm not sure if those are real yet.  It also sounds like he says kitty-cat or maybe it is his way of saying Makiko (Kiko).  He loves Makiko and she loves him much to my demise.  I can't keep her away from him.


I really thought that Jameson would be one of those babies that skipped right over crawling and start walking.  Not only because he has always hated tummy time and loved standing but also because I pretty much skipped it.  Boy was I wrong!

He started out scooting here and there to get a toy or pivoting on his belly.  Then progressed to what I will call "fish out of water" it looked like he was trying to swim but not getting far :)  Now we are full on Army Crawl and boy is he quick.  He hasn't quite figured out how to crawl on hands and knees but he can get up on them and will rock back and forth.  I feel so sorry for his little arms and knees though; he has crazy rug burn :(  I have been putting pants on to help with the knees but it is just too hot for long sleeves right now.

Now I need to start baby proofing!  In addition to picking up every little fuzz, leaf and piece of paper and constantly vacuuming!  I have a lot to do :(

Watch him go!

Baby Teeth

After several months and a couple of hard weeks of drooling, crankiness and acidic diaper changes Jameson has 2 teeth!  I think he is working on the top teeth now but I can't get my finger in there to see but he has his little lizard tongue going.  He bites if I go anywhere near :)  This week I was checking out his teeth and noticed they looked rotten and of course the overprotective mom freaks out.  I called Grangie, our new nick name for Grandma Angie (hehe), since she is a dental hygienist.  Of course all my worry was for nothing, just stain from the iron in his vitamins.  After a polishing and a couple brushing's his teeth are once again pearly white.

It is so hard to get pics of them but here they are!


Wow...I didn't realize that it had been a whole month since I last blogged!  Zack told me when we first started dating that I would grow to hate the month of August in his family.  He was so right!  There are 5 birthday's within a month of each other and boy does it make for a super, crazy busy month.  You add weddings 4 weddings on top of that and there is just no time left.  We are on the down hill now, one wedding to go then VACATION TIME!

We are going to Colorado for a whole week :)  Zack and I haven't been on a vacation in 4 years and it will be Jameson's 1st.  I am really looking forward to the time away but not at all looking forward to the car ride.  Jameson is great in the car but 10 hours in the car is not going to be fun.  I have had a couple recommendations to get a dvd player and some Baby Einstein videos.  So I will have to try that out.

So now onto the the last month of news since I was a slacker!  So many big things going on with Jameson :) I am going to make a few different posts.  I know I hate reading long posts and end up losing interest :)
