Well, she’s doing it!
Capri is walking… dang, it’s the cutest thing! I love it…
And she is so excited, and proud of herself! It’s fun to see… it’s harder to photograph that I thought! The light was low as I was trying to take some shots of her, so they are a little blurry, but these still seem to capture those sweet little steps… with the arms up in the air and that excited little expression!
So we are 30 days out from a new baby…
And 90 days until creative escape!
Time is ticking! Wow…
So I am all set up to start work on the creative escape book… look at my ‘serious’ set up here… right in my scrapbook studio! I need to figure out a way to hinge the table to the wall, and put the lights on a pulley system, so I can have an instant photo studio when I need it… rather than traipsing downstairs every time I need to take a photo. I am going to try to get the book all done by the time the baby comes! He is going to be here before I know it!! it gets down to these last few weeks, and it’s just so uncomfortable! Eric said something to me about how he has only seen me in pajamas all week… and I had to explain to him that is because it’s the ONLY thing that fits me!  I need to start thinking about what I need to dig back out for a new baby! I am getting so excited to see the little guy! … see what he is going to look like. I am pretty sure he is going to have curly hair too, if the heart burn really has anything to indicate about it. man, I was up for hours last night because of the fire roasted tomato soup I ate for dinner last night!  Alright, I am tired. Good night.

    OMG – I am in the early stages of pregnancy and was hoping the ‘morning sickness’ thing and the heartburn was going to go away! Good Luck for everything.

    That is so exciting that your baby girl is walking. Watch out Swapp house… It will never be the same!!
    What are the ages of your kids again?
    Just saw where you are going to be at the Scrap Etc. event in Nashville next year. I am hoping to swing the expense and time away from family so I can attend.
    Take Care,

    Wow, you have the cutest children. I know it sounds silly, but cheap disposable cameras catch those moments without the blur. Just thought I’d mention it.
    Looks and soundds like you are having a ball.

    I cannot believe that Capri is already walking!!! Gabby is on the verge…soon enough!! (I am having a hard time with her growing up, I just want her to stay little forever!)
    Soooo excited about Creative Escape…can’t wait to see what you have in store!
    And good luck with the new baby and eveything that you have to do before he comes. How exciting for you guys that you’ll have another little newborn soon…gives me baby fever, and Gabby’s only 10 months old! aaahhh!!

    Love the walking pictures! I didn’t capture my daughters first walking steps, but I have it ingrained to my memory. She started walking the day my son was born. I’ll never forget watching her toddle down the hospital hallway. She’s 11 now, and my son turned 10 yesterday. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

    That’s a sweet setup! I would LOVE to have a set up like that. Good luck with the book!
    I know it’s tricky to get walking photos, and my daughter is coming up on that milestone any day now. I think you did I nice job capturing it!

    You don’t know me. But this is the first little girl that I’ve seen named Capri! We are dead set on naming our next girl that! I LOVE IT!

    Very sweet photos! She is an absolute doll!
    For the heartburn…try Breyer’s All Natural Vanilla ice cream…just a tablespoon should get rid of the heart burn immediately. I suffered from this in my twin pregnancy and the ice cream helped instantly.

    So cute that she’s walking. My grandson is 8 months old and is crawling. He likes to stand, but it’s a little early for walking. I can hardly wait.
    Love your little photo studio set up. I hope you can get your book all done before the little curly haired man makes his apprearance in 30 some odd days. It’s a busy and exciting time for you and your family right now.

    Pregnancy number two has been causing me crazy heartburn too. My midwife suggested I take 2 zantac a day and honestly the prescription helps SO much. I was downing four to six tums a day and now I just take one zantac in the morning and one in the evening and I’m pretty much heartburn free. But I totally feel it if I forget to take it or if I can’t take it at my normal time for some reason. Good luck with managing your heartburn.

    ok. Heidi. I’m in your ytr class and have been reading your blog since day one, I did not know you knew you were having a boy! how did I miss that?!? I can’t believe how quickly this year is going! Slow down!

    Heidi, so is this new baby due say….July 12th? If so, that is my birthday. coolio.
    Go Capri, Go!
    Love your thoughts…so real. I love to see people accept their ‘seasons’ in life.
    Tips from Peg: TUMS helped (and still helps) my heartburn…2 fruit flavor each time and stay away from that Diet Coke…that is a for sure ‘heartburner’. Don’t eat big meals…instead, try 6 mini meals. And peppermint also helps sooth the tummy.
    big congrats!
