Mommy & Me Monday



This week's shot was actually taken tonite when I was making PW's amazing cinnamon rolls. Omg, they were SO good. I hate the fact that my arm looks the size of a VS model's thigh I love this picture--it's not posed and just of Bella with her raisins wanting me to carry you--also known as me pick her up. {She tells me carry you anytime she wants to be held. Seriously adorable.}

Oh--in case you're wondering I totally failed my giving up sweets for Lent...happens every year...well, not every year. I haven't been a Catholic that long.


Thanks to Krystyn for hosting this each week! It's really been helping me be in front of the camera more with my girls. I hope to see all of you over at Krystyn's blog, too!

Mommy to a lil lady[bug] said...

unposed pictures are great!

Llama said...

I truly love how this picture captures a moment between you and Bella. It is so completely adorable. Pictures do tell a thousand words. You both look so happy.
p.s. Did you say cinnamon rolls?

Jenny said...

Love the candid shot!

And cinnamin rolls...yum!

I can't handle giving up sweets. I know I should, but sometimes I need that. This year I gave up procrastinating...and Catholic guilt is quite effective motivation for getting things done!

Have a great week!

Jenny said...

I also may have given up correct spellings...oops!

Lindsey said...

Your arms look great and what a fun picture. I can taste the cinnamon rolls all the way here. YUM!!!

Kristi said...

I think that pic is adorable! It is so hard to get good non-posed pics in my opinion!! Tell Leo (or whoever took the pic...) GOOD JOB!

And I hope Bella wants to carry me when I get to see her again :)

I think it's so important to be in photos with your kids, good job! 40 years from now they won't be thinking about your arms;) They will be looking at that smile on your face!

This seems like such a fun meme -- and so good for us Mommy's who are always behind the camera!!

This is my first week participating!!

Annie said...

This is a wonderful picture!
My 2.5 year old will say "Mommy hold ME" emphasizing "me" since I am usually holding her baby brother :)

Lindsay said...

Love this picture! It is just so real! You look cute as a button :-) and we already knew Bella was :-). Love the carry you story!

Erin said...

So cute! Miss H used to say "carry you" whenever she wanted me to pick her up. I loved that!

You haven't been Catholic that long, huh? When did you come into the Church? I am a cradle Catholic so conversion stories fascinate me!

Cherry Berry said...

Unposed pictures are some of the best ones!

Danielle said...

Love the picture!! Lo tells me she wants to hold me too (meaning me pick her up) It is So cute.

Kelli @ writing the waves said...

Awwww...so sweet.

Jenny said...

Such a great pic of you both! The cinnamon rolls sound so...yummy!

Krystyn said...

Oh, I love the captured moment.

I might have to try some cinnamon rolls..those sound fabulous!

My girls hate raisins...weird, right? Then again, I hate them, too.

Heather said...

That is such a sweet picture.

Becks said...

Such a nice moment with you and Bella :) I love natural pictures like this!

My husband never picks up the camera...ever, so I never get any:(

Also...Sophia says "hold you" when she wants picked up...awe our girls are so cute!

I've heard so many good things about those cinnamon rolls but I'm afraid to make them because I LOVE that kind of thing.

Midday Escapades said...

Such a sweet moment and pic. I'd pay to taste those cinnamon rolls!

Emily said...

I think it's great you have her in the kitchen to help you bake! Super cute picture...now we need a picture of those cinnamon rolls! My niece (Krystyn's oldest daughter) would say,"Hold ya?" when she wanted to be held.

Danielle (Life with the Hewitt Family) said...

Great picture of you both! Carter used to say, "Can I hold you" when he wanted to be held. They are just so cute!

One of these days I will get around to making these cinnamon rolls. I have heard from so many people that they are amazing!

Hattie said...
