Portraits

That's Daisy, one of our basset hounds. We think she's about ten, but we're not sure. We rescued her eight years ago and we thought she was two at the time...soo, do the math! I was playing around with my camera, trying to master the depth of field when both my dogs decided that I was on the floor to play with them. First Rufus stuck his nose in my camera (unfortunately all the pics of him turned out kinda yucky) and then Daisy (the boss) pushed him over and put HER nose in the camera. This turned out sorta cute.

My little guy. He was feeling kinda blue yesterday. He had a fever and I think he might be teething. On the plus side, he is kind of crawling. He can go one "step" and then plops back down on his tummy - adorable.

And this is my big guy, what an angel. I'm feeling kind of guilty tonight because I really was angry with him earlier. He woke up the baby TWICE when I was trying to get him down for a nap....I was sooo mad and I lost my temper. He wasn't being mean, he just L-O-V-E-S his baby brother! Look at that face - what a dollbaby. *sigh* Well the best I can do is move forward and learn from it. Tomorrow is another day...

What a sweet face Daisy has (good for you for rescuing her)! I can't get down on the floor either or my dogs are all over me (LOL).

Such beautiful photo's of your sons! They have beautiful blue eyes. Don't be so hard on yourself either, sometimes Mom's can get a little stressed. Your older son sure sounds like a sweetie!

Have a great day!
