You might have noticed that there hasn't been much activity on this blog this week (whistling and looking around). I have a good reason, I promise! My friend from high-school, Amanda, is in town for a week and she has a wrecking ball with her which has demolished my entire house, schedule and life.

His name is Isaiah and he's 22 months old. Looks adorable and innocent, doesn't he?

This is the first time I've had anyone stay with me for more than a few days and unable to tie their own shoes--both at the same time. I must say that while he sure is cute, I have NO CLUE how anyone with kids manages to both stay home with their child AND work (at the same time). I've been getting basically nothing done, and the ways in which my life is not set up for babies are too numerous at this point to count.

I will say this though--kids are fun! Isaiah is basically all about the party, and Amanda and I are just along for the ride.

My conclusion--if I ever happen to have children, hopefully I will also happen to have copious amounts of help! I have a new respect for all you moms out there who are also trying to start or run your own businesses. You must have the energy of a five year old and the patience of a saint!

Here's a few shots of Isaiah from our trip to Disneyland the other day--I'd recommend waiting to go to Disney until a Tuesday in October. Apparently children and families who are out of school for the summer enjoy going there right now. Who knew?!

Anyway, the three of us have been having a great time, and in the next couple of days, I'll be blogging LOTS--Hillary & Peter's day after session, her bridal session, some miscellaneous thoughts, a contest, some delicious photos of cupcakes, and so much more!

Here's a shot or two from Disneyland--I didn't shoot much that day since it was SO hot and bright at noon, but I did snag one or two, including the two above.
