jonah comes to life

finished two more illustrations. this is the part of the story where jonah's balloon fills with rain and he sinks down to some place in southern africa and meets a giraffe. jonah's "appearance" is modeled after my nephew jonah... fancy that! that's all i got.

amber is now a speedy little crawler and getting into all kinds of fun things. she especially likes to chew on power cords. I might have to break her of this habit since she does have her first tooth coming in. she also finds a lot of old crumbs on the floor... now i know how dirty our house really is. She is also pulling herself up on different things. it is cute to find her standing up in her crib when she wakes up from a nap. recently we were in ocean isle, nc on arnold family vacation. it was fun watching her eat sand and play in the shallow waves. one day nick took her out into the ocean (when i told him not to) and then promptly got knocked over my a huge wave and was holding amber above his head while she got hit in the face by waves. i was a little angry, but everyone survived and now i have a story out of it. here are some pictures from the beach. she is just too cute... it makes me and nick sick to our stomachs how cute she is.

more illustrations

i've almost finished two more illustrations... the pictures aren't so good b/c i took photos of them instead of scanning them. maybe next i'll try tackling painting the main character, Jonah.

amber time

Time to post some more pictures of Amber. She is getting so big! Here we go:

she likes to take naps on mom and dad's tempur-pedic mattress. so luxurious.

this is from the time she played with an empty skittle bag for half an hour. (check out the rolls on the arm!)

chillin' (literally) at the river place pool.


Sitting up with a little help.
