Mommy and Me Monday- The 98th ed.


It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.

Happy New Year!  I can’t believe it’s 2012 already.

And, what I really can’t believe.  I’m on parenting By dummies’ BList Best Mom Blogs of 2011 list!  What a serious honor!  I certainly didn’t expect to see myself on that list!

When I saw that and her mention of Mommy and Me Monday, I was like, oh no, I don’t have a picture for this week!  So, I flashed Mr. Serious a nice smile and batted my eyes and he grabbed the camera and got a picture of me and the girls.

Since we had our professional pictures, the girls are even more obsessed with posing with their hands on my belly.  But, it sure is stinking cute!

Now, I’ve decided, too, that we need some true white lighting in our house.  This yellow business is too much for me (hence the black and white).

Let’s see your first Mommy and Me picture of 2012!  I’m sure it’s a great one.

And for grins, here’s the first Mommy and Me picture of 2011.  If you have one, put it up, too. I’d love to see what a difference a year makes.  (We were doing potty dance celebrations!)

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies.  If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link.  It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**

  1. Oh my gosh…LOOK HOW THEY’VE GROWN!!

    And you look fabulous. Just perfect.

    Man, it won’t be long and they’ll be 4 sweet faces in your Mommy and Me pics. And I can’t wait!

    1. I know…it’s crazy! I get all weepy just looking at the old pictures!

      You know that 4th face will be here sooo soon!

  2. I LOVE that black and white photo! So pretty!
    And yes, so much can change in 1 year. 🙂
    Happy New Year!

    1. Awww…thanks! The color version was terrible…I had to do something to change the lighting.

      Yes, at the risk of sounding cliche…what a difference a year makes.

  3. You are so funny! For it being a “fly by the seat of your pants” kind of picture, I absolutely love it! & I saw you on that list & wasn’t surprised at all. Keep it up girlie 🙂

    1. Well, lucky shot. But, seriously, if I showed you the SOOC shot, you would say “ick!” So thankful for photoshop actions!

      Thanks, hon, you are too kind.

  4. You are looking mighty cute with your bump! Happy 2012! Your 100th edition is coming up, you gotta do something BIG 🙂

    1. Why thank you. It sure is feeling might huge!

      I know..two more weeks. I’ve got a little something lined up from me…I was hoping some people might come forward and help out, but what I have is nice to giveaway.

      But, what am I going to do for a picture? Hmmm…I should start planning (and I’m thinking a certain little lady arriving in two weeks wouldn’t be good…then she would be three weeks early!)

    1. Awww..thanks. Seriously, though, the SOOC is terrible. So glad I took the time to do a b&w and edit!

      It’s crazy to look back, and might make me just a little weepy:)

  5. So cute! I’m happy I can jump in with a MMM pic this week!
    Congrats also on the mention! How awesome for you!

  6. Hi there, I popped over from Amanda’s blog, and just had to check out her BList blogs, and glad I did!!

    Love the idea of Mommy & Me Monday – I always bemoan the fact that there are so few pictures of my son and I together (as I’m always the one behind the camera). I think I’ll play next week!

    1. Hi Alison…so glad you stopped by! I hope you’ll join in, too! Some weeks are harder than others, but it at least guarantees one picture of you with your kid/kiddos, right?

      I usually post the linky Sunday night and it actually stays open until Saturday night:)

    1. Thank you! I think all of the pictures at my house are going to be b&w from now on…otherwise, they have this icky 70s yellow feel to them.

    love your pictures!! So cute! 🙂

    1. Thank you! Hubby is good at getting the girls to smile.

  8. I love that black and white picture!!! It is so, so cute!! And wow your girls have definitely grown up in the past year! So fun to see what a difference a year makes!

    1. Thank you! I am so glad I edited was just so icky before.

      I can’t believe how much they have grown and changed, either. This preggo momma can’t handle looking at the old pictures.

  9. I need to join you again! I will get a pic taken this week 🙂

    That photo of you and your girls and your tummy is BEAUTIFUL. You are glowing and soooo pretty. I’m so happy for you Krystyn!

    1. Yes you do! This is my reminder to you to get a picture this weekend if you haven’t yet (and yikes, pretty sure I don’t have one, either and I was home with the girls all week…how does that happen)?

      Thank you. I sure am not feeling glowy or pretty (more like huge and tired!)
