6 Week Photos

Here is a pre-view of Madelyn's 6 week photos that we took. At the present time Miss Maddie doesn't like to have her picture taken, either that or she still doesn't like to have her clothes off. Or just a combanantion of the two. Who knows. It took us 3 different times photographing to get these. So hopefully by 3 months we will have a more willing model.


At Brendan's second soccer game he got to be goalie.
At his games there are about 10 3-4 year olds on the field chasing this one soccer ball, it isn't even a full sized ball, no they also come in sizes for those of you who didn't know this. So we have 10 kids on a field, 1 small(er) soccer ball and a mob of kids following. Now not all the kids are following this ball some are off just standing around of playing in a dirt circle that just happens to be in the middle of the field (very distracting for 3-4 year olds).

On each team there are only a couple of kids who actually know what to do, Brendan is in between, he knows to kick the ball and does a great job of getting it from one end of the field to the other, it is just the getting it into the goal and getting in the middle of the said mob to get the ball that he has a problem with.

Back to being goalie. This is a hard job for a 3 or 4 year old, why watch the game when they have this cool net thing behind them? Brendan blocked 2 of 3 balls while he was goalie, the last one the net proved to be more fun.

But here is our soccer goalie in action. (One he had stopped)

Papa & Grandma Tatz

Papa and Grandma Tatz came up from Georgia for a visit and to meet little Maddie. We had a wonderful visit. We went to the Zoo, Brendan had his first soccer game, we went to the park and spent a wonderful couple of days together.

Brendan loved playing outside with his papa Tatz.
Here are a couple of photos from when they were here. This first one is a picture that Brendan took all by himself. I guess it runs in the family. :)
And here is Grandma Tatz with both of her grandbabies.
