Good result Maureen, glad the scare turned out to be a "minor" issue, hope it doesn't affect your shutter finger.

Well I have been having a crazy week. All day Sunday I had a sharp pain radiating from my upper left arm to my clavicle area. After 16 hours it was so bad I had the shakes so decided I better go to the ER & have it checked out. Dr. said he thought it might be a precursor to a heart attack & wanted to admit me for tests. I had 10 needles in me by Monday afternoon; EKG, stress tests, Ultrasounds of all my extremities and a CAT scan on my lungs to rule out a blood clot. Thank goodness everything came back negative. They finally determined I had a tear underside of my pectoral muscle that showed up in the CT scan. I have no idea how it happened but am relieved to know the rest of me is healthy. :)

Scared the dickens out of my kids too........ But it was nice to see how much they wanted me to stick around for a while.;-)a;-)a

Wow, that's scary Maureen. You shouldn't have waited 16 hours though. Glad that it all turned out okay.:-)

I'm surprised not to see Tristan scooting backwards with that leaf blower on!
Ella is too cute and you can't stop dressing her up, can you!!  :p

Hello I'm Rose and I'm new here! I tend to find baby animals so much cuter than baby children. Anyone agree? :-D


My camera is my eyes. HELP! It burns!
No seriously, I specialise in animals, events in Lancashire and abstract photography. Check out my Flickr page please for more images and info :3

Great shots of Tristan and Ella, Maureen! Ella appears to be a natural in that shot.
P.S. I'm so glad your big scare turned out okay.

Hi, Rose and welcome! I love all babies, but rarely think any newborns (human or animal) are very cute.  :p

Well since I am surrounded by babies regularly, I have a preference for the human kind but like Stina, I love all babies. Welcome!

Maureen, glad to know everything turned out okay! I love those shots, they are both adorable! That one of Tristan reminds me of my son, Douglass, who used to follow behind his dad with his toy lawn mower!

Welcome, Rose, I have no preference, I find both are equally cute:-)

Lynn, we have 2 lawn mowers that are used daily in the backyard but they are kiddie ones. This time I let him use the big guy tools so he was thrilled. I hadn't seen him in nearly 2 weeks as he went camping one week, then had his pre- school days when he got back & I went to San Diego.

So I picked him up from school on Wed. & I didn't have the door all the way open when he flew up into my arms & kept hugging & kissing me. His teachers were laughing saying they had never seen him so happy or animated; just made my heart burst. Then Thursday we played all day long. I just packed Ella in to it & tried to give Tristan all the extra attention I could. Luckily Ella adores her brother, can sit & crawl now so she was fine to take a backseat. I am afraid her mommy doesn't know how to do that (& that it is okay to share the spotlight with both of them) so Tristan acts up for his mom a lot. But I was exhausted at the end of the week! :-)

Maureen, the closest we came to letting Douglass use the big toys was a shovel, but it was a short handle shovel. When we lived in Louisiana, my husband had some dirt delivered so we could level out our 1 acre lot, Douglass took one look at the hill of dirt, grabbed his shovel, put on his rubber boots and run out there playing in the dirt! He had so much fun, we didn't have the heart to spread it out, so that hill of dirt sat in our driveway for a few months:-)

I would love to see my granddaughter, Trinity, more often....or better yet, see her as often as you do! I remember the last time we came up there, her parents decided they weren't going to tell her we were coming. We made sure we got there before she got home from school, we were standing in the driveway, when she arrived. She jumped from the car and ran to me and jumped in my arms, laying her head on my shoulders and making happy noises. For 5 minutes she held on, so I just held her and carried her around. Course, Grandpa was not too happy, telling Trinity "Hey, what about me!" She jumped down, gave him a hug, then ran back to me!

Talk about your heart bursting! If I could live up there, I would:-)

I don't think anyone makes you feel as good as grandchildren do. Even my almost 13 year old grandson. Last Sunday, before going to his mom's, he asked me to stop by his dad's house for a hug. I think that kid hugged me 15 times and almost wouldn't let me go. About killed me to drive away.........

I have plans to move to Hawaii in 5 years. Aaron already said he would go with me (he will be 18) but I almost cannot bear to leave the others behind. Ella will be 5...... Tristan 7. I plan on coming back every 6-8 weeks to visit but I think my heart will always be in California.....

Hallo! I'm new to the board! :) I'm a single mum, trying to re-find my way in photography. My kiddo has hit the stage of hating to pose for photos, so I end up using my cat for practice rather a lot, lol! I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia, causing challenges in my life and hobbies, but I figure it could always be worse, and am working on learning to adapt! ;)
