On A High

I'm still flying high after the big day yesterday. If you missed it, my friend Becky had her baby boy. He's just so incredible (sigh). I keep going over to her blog to look at his pictures!

I'm pretty sure hubby is thankful that we made our decision to be done with babies permanent. If we hadn't? I'd seriously be after him for another. Oh, just walking on that L&D floor yesterday made my ovaries do back flips! And then to see such a wondrous little baby...every fiber of my being wanted another little one of my own.

But we're done. Unless, hubby was generous to suggest, I'd like to find myself a different husband. Not a chance, he's stuck with me.

It's not that hubby doesn't love babies...our babies especially. He loves being a dad. He's involved in every part of our kids' lives, and we agree that these 4 little monkeys make our lives complete. He couldn't imagine life without any one of them.

But...last night, when we had 4 screaming kids...literally, SCREAMING, all at the same time for various reasons...he looked at me with a smile and shouted over the noise, "Still want another?!"

I got the point. We're full. Yes, I know, we're done.

But oh...my achin' fallopian tubes!

Okay, enough of that talk. I'm just gonna enjoy what I have...which is more than abundant blessings.

I'm feeling a bit overrun today with the items on my to do list. This weekend holds school clothes shopping, grocery shopping, lawn mowing, and photo editing for this family.

I'm pretty overwhelmed with all my pictures these days...pictures to take, pictures to edit, pictures to print, pictures to get to friends, pictures to put in albums, pictures to organize on my computer.

And the organizing on the computer part is getting tricky. Before I can do much more, I'm going to have to go get another hard drive and some more memory for my computer. I'm not joking! My computer is FULL. I had to delete a bunch of photos off my computer yesterday before I could transfer baby pictures to the computer (after saving to a different hard drive and various DVDs, of course). It's been made much more difficult now that I've been shooting in RAW instead of jpg...much bigger files.

Bottom line...I need a better organization system for my pictures, and I have to get it figured out NOW before I have a zillion more photos to deal with.

Wow, this is turning out to be a really, extraordinarily BORING post, isn't it?

I'll end your pain now, and close. See you this weekend for Seek The Lord Sunday, when we'll be sharing lessons learned recently. Excuse me, while I go add that to my to do list...

Congrats to Becky, even though I don't know her "), I'm so glad everything went well! I LOVE seeing new baby pictures, so thanks for including the link, and it makes me want more, more, more as well. Which I think scares Bill, but it's hard to get enough of the cute little bundles.

I know the feeling. My uterus like to sing when I'm around my little niece and nephew. It's like, "I know I know, you don't need to remind me!" LOL!

Seeing such a sweet newborn like like little B made me want another one too... but then I remembered the exhaustion, sore boobs, and fussy pre-toddler that I've had to deal with... YEP! I'm done!! Good thing Becky had such a cutie.. we can get our fix with him. :)

Babies are so fun! I LOVE LOVE LOVE photographing babies. (you'll have to see today's post)

IF you want a good way to organize photos...iPhoto on a MAC is so easy and fun and I can't say enough! I love it and don't know what I'd do without my Mac!!!

Hope your weekend is fun!
