&nbsp;At 7 months she seems to be doing something new every week. &nbsp;Recently she has been sitting up on her own quite well, got her first tooth, and smiles more and more. &nbsp;She is also really liking all of the solid food we have introduced to her, which I am making all of it myself. &nbsp;Not only is it way cheaper than jar food, but I feel better knowing exactly what my baby is eating. &nbsp;I will share recipes soon, and feel free to share your recipes, too! &nbsp;Stay tuned for&nbsp;that!&nbsp;</p> Thu, 25 Aug 2011 20:10:00 +0000http://birdsnestphotography.myfotojournal.com/2011/aug/25/jooniper-7-months/Senior Spotlight | Melissa Belzer c/o 2012 | Anchorage, KYhttp://birdsnestphotography.myfotojournal.com/2011/aug/14/senior-spotlight-melissa-belzer-co-2012-anchorage-ky/<p>Melissa is the younger sister Lauren, one of my very favorite person in the whole wide world. &nbsp;Melissa is every bit as sweet as Lauren, as I knew she would be!

I heard from Lindsey a few months ago to do a Maternity shoot I couldn&#8217;t have been more excited. &nbsp;Having recently been pregnant myself, I have a humongous soft spot in my heart for maternity and babies. &nbsp;(But to be honest, being a new mother has made me more emotional and 1000% more passionate about&#8230; everything. &nbsp;Especially my photography.) &nbsp;I have shared so many memories with Lindsey and Coda and their families. &nbsp;And I love being able to share these monumental milestones with families. &nbsp;I can&#8217;t wait to meet Coda <span

monthshttp://birdsnestphotography.myfotojournal.com/2011/jun/22/jooniper-4-months/<p>Meet my very own baby girl, Jooniper Lee Ledford. &nbsp;Like many little girls, I had my boy/girl names picked out years and years ago. &nbsp;If I had a girl she would be Jooniper, after the main character in my absolute favorite movie as a kid- <a href="http://www.impawards.com/1993/posters/benny_and_joon_ver1.jpg">Benny <span class="amp">&amp;</span> Joon</a>. &nbsp;If it was a boy he would be Jerry Theodore, after my Husband, and beloved Grandpa who is my Mom&#8217;s Dad. &nbsp;For some reason, while I was pregnant we were all sure I was having a boy.. maybe because there are so many girls in both of our families.. &#8216;time for a boy!&#8217;. &nbsp;But alas! &nbsp;We had us a little Jooniper! &nbsp;We gave her the middle name &#8220;Lee&#8221;. &nbsp;It is Jerry&#8217;s middle name, his mother&#8217;s middle name, and it is also my <em>other</em>&nbsp;Grandpa&#8217;s name (on my Dad&#8217;s side), and it is also incorporated in my sister&#8217;s name- LEEanna.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Jooniper has been an amazing little baby. &nbsp;Her birth was easy and relaxed, which pretty much describes the past 3 months too! Now, at 4 months, she has blossomed so much (I&#8217;m sure I&#8217;ll find myself saying that various times throughout her life). &nbsp;She is starting to jabber a little and we have recently discovered she has dimples when she is really really happy. &nbsp;She is learning hand-eye coordination is even grabbing her feet! &nbsp;&#8230;You&#8217;ll have to excuse me, as a brand-new mother, I&#8217;m just as amazed as she seems to be at everything.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>So without further adieu, meet is my baby girl&nbsp;Jooniper.&nbsp;</p> <p><img class="fj-Photo fj-large" src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/22/large_BLOG01.jpg" alt="BLOG01.jpg" title="BLOG01.jpg" /></p> <p><img class="fj-Photo fj-large" src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/22/large_BLOG02.jpg" alt="BLOG02.jpg" title="BLOG02.jpg" /></p> <p><img class="fj-Photo fj-large" src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/22/large_BLOG03.jpg" alt="BLOG03.jpg" title="BLOG03.jpg" /></p> <p><img class="fj-Photo fj-large" src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/22/large_BLOG04.jpg" alt="BLOG04.jpg" title="BLOG04.jpg" /></p> <p>Everything goes right to the&nbsp;mouth.&nbsp;</p> <p><img class="fj-Photo fj-large" src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/22/large_BLOG05.jpg" alt="BLOG05.jpg" title="BLOG05.jpg" /></p> <p><img class="fj-Photo fj-large" src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/22/large_BLOG06.jpg" alt="BLOG06.jpg" title="BLOG06.jpg" /></p> <p>&nbsp;The two above photos may be my all time&nbsp;favorites.</p> <p><img class="fj-Photo fj-large" src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/22/large_BLOG07.jpg" alt="BLOG07.jpg" title="BLOG07.jpg" /></p> <p>&nbsp;<span class="caps">WE</span> <span class="caps">HAVE</span>&nbsp;<span class="caps">DIMPLES</span>!&nbsp;</p> <p><img class="fj-Photo fj-large" src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/22/large_BLOG08.jpg" alt="BLOG08.jpg" title="BLOG08.jpg" /></p> <p>&nbsp;She has the pretties eyes I&#8217;ve ever seen. &nbsp;(and not to toot my own horn, but her eyes are the only thing she got from&nbsp;me!)</p> <p><img class="fj-Photo fj-large" src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/22/large_BLOG09.jpg" alt="BLOG09.jpg" title="BLOG09.jpg" /></p> <p><img class="fj-Photo fj-large" src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/22/large_BLOG12.jpg" alt="BLOG12.jpg" title="BLOG12.jpg" /></p> <p><img class="fj-Photo fj-large" src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/22/large_BLOG11.jpg" alt="BLOG11.jpg" title="BLOG11.jpg" /></p> <p><img class="fj-Photo fj-large" src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/22/large_BLOG13.jpg" alt="BLOG13.jpg" title="BLOG13.jpg" /></p> <p><img class="fj-Photo fj-large" src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/22/large_BLOG10.jpg" alt="BLOG10.jpg" title="BLOG10.jpg" /></p> <p>A <span class="caps">NURSERY</span> <span class="caps">IN</span>&nbsp;<span class="caps">PROGRESS</span>&#8230;</p> <p><img class="fj-Photo fj-large" src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/22/large_BLOG14.jpg" alt="BLOG14.jpg" title="BLOG14.jpg" /></p> <p>Joon takes a nap, above her is a small painting from her&nbsp;Daddy.</p> <p><img class="fj-Photo fj-large" src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/22/large_BLOG_BOARD.jpg" alt="BLOG_BOARD.jpg" title="BLOG_BOARD.jpg" /></p> <p>Hand-painted bird houses, left over from our wedding&nbsp;favor</p> <p><img class="fj-Photo fj-large" src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/22/large_BLOG16.jpg" alt="BLOG16.jpg" title="BLOG16.jpg" /></p> <p>oops&#8230;

The sole survivor of a plane crash that killed everyone in his band as well as his wife and baby daughter 20-some years earlier, Colt now works out of an <span class="caps">SUV</span> in north Florida. Strapped for cash, he agrees to help 23-year-old Leitha Ryan track down her missing 15-year-old sister, Brittney. Leitha is reluctant to involve the police out of fear that they will return Brittney to foster care. What appears to be a straightforward case proves to be anything but. Colt uncovers several murders as it becomes clear that Brittney disappeared in order to hide from someone who wants to kill her. The violence, while sometimes extreme, is never gratuitous, and Hardin crafts a well-constructed plot and conjures up a flawed protagonist who&#8217;s more than capable of carrying a series.</em><br /><strong>&mdash;<em>Publisher&#8217;s&nbsp;Weekly</em></strong></p> <p><strong><em><span style="font-style: normal; font-weight: normal;">Go pick up a copy of <span style="text-decoration: underline;">Pocket-47</span> at your bookstore, or at <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Pocket-47-Jude-Hardin/dp/1608090116/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1305295732&amp;sr=1-1">Amazon</a>!</span></em></strong></p> <p><img src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/20/large_Pocket47+-1.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/20/large__MG_0191+bw.jpg" style="border: 0px initial initial;" /></p> <p><img src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/20/large_Pocket47+-9.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/20/large_Pocket47+-12.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/20/large__MG_0166+bw.jpg" style="border: 0px initial initial;" /></p> <p><img src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/20/large_Pocket47+-19.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/20/large_Pocket47+-30.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/20/large_Pocket47+-40.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/20/large_Pocket47+-55.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="http://media.myfotojournal.com:80/blogs/birdsnestphotography/photos/2011/06/20/large_Pocket47+-66.jpg" /></p> Mon, 20 Jun 2011 13:59:00 +0000http://birdsnestphotography.myfotojournal.com/2011/jun/20/pocket-47-book-signing-author-jude-hardin-louisville-ky/
