Yesterday a little princess was born. Her name is Izabelle Grace. She’s my new little sister. She was born at 1:30pm and she weighs 5 pounds and 15 ounces. She’s a tiny little girl. My sister, Dayle, and I got to be there when she was born, along with my Mom’s friend. Sadly, they probably won’t be home until tomorrow, so that means I’ll be role playing as Mom until she gets back. But even once she comes home I’ll have to take care of the kids a lot more so she can rest.
Yesterday after Izzy was born I came home from the hospital and got really sick. I was exhausted and had a very upset stomach and a massive headache. So I pretty much slept all day except for about an hour when my friend came over to attempt to teach me ASL. (Yeah that failed, it was way too hard for me to focus with my heachache so we just talked.) But yeah, my mom did fantastic. It was so sweet to see her talk to her baby. You could just see the love in her eyes. This picture is a good one to portray the emotions she had.
It’s going to be an interesting week and I’m a bit worried about my mom for when she comes home. The kids tend to get a little crazy when they get a new sibling. As much as I’m sad that they won’t be coming home today, I’m also glad because they need all the rest they can get and it’ll be nice and quiet there. I hope I can get better pictures once they come home because it was so hard to take them in the hospital because I can’t use flash (for obvious reasons.) and the lighting was really bad at the hospital which, combined, makes a bad setting for picture taking.
But in other news, I got to do a photoshoot with my lovely friend, Maddi. (you can follow her on Twitter @MaddiLandmesser) It was kinda hard because it had just rained and was still misting a bit. But I did what I could and overall they turned out pretty good. I’ll probably post those pictures another time. I want to get in the habit of posting more of my photography. I’ve been messing with my camera a lot and practicing not using any auto settings. (Which was the advice I got from my favorite photographer, Savanna.) I’ve also been getting more photography books to become familiar with all the settings and what not.
Annnnnnd that about covers it for today.
