Introducing the new Carriere Baby

Self Portraits by Maks

Every once in awhile I find a cute little surprise in my phone. I am not sure when he does these but I love that Maks takes his picture using my phone. It is such a nice surprise that makes me laugh and smile. I am sure that there will be more than these two gems.

A New Carriere Baby

A new baby boy. We are so very blessed and very excited about the new arrival. (July 18th) It was a great ultrasound appointment and they even let Maks come into the room to see the new baby. I think he was very excited even if he does not truly understand what is going on.

So today we are off to another ultrasound. I am excited because I am hoping to find out the sex of the baby. I do not find it fun to wait until the baby is born, I am too old for that kind of surprise. :) Maks says we are going to have a baby girl. That would be awesome. I know it sounds really cliche but I really just hope for a healthy baby. But, if it is a girl I will be even more excited.

Ready to come back! I think.....

It has been such a long time since I have touched the blog posts. It is not that I wanted to quit, I just got so busy and then ... we got pregnant! It is awesome news and I feel incredibly blessed but I was so sick for three months that there was little I wanted to do or even accomplish. Now that I am done with the excuses I will try and move on.

When I last wrote I was working on my Sketchbook Project. I have finished the sketchbook and hope to upload some pictures very soon before I send it back to the Boston Art Museum. It is a little late but I was grateful for the extension. It was a great project for me to finish because it forced me to do the artwork that I always put to the side when busy. I learned a long time ago that it is essential for me to create art for therapy and then I am always surprised when I never make the time to do any.

I am also excited that my son has developed his own creativity. Maks has started to take his own photos. In fact, he has been quite the little photographer. Now he has his own camera, don't worry, we didn't buy him a new camera, he has my old one that is only 6 megapixels but he loves it because it is all his. It amazes me how good some of his pictures are and my husband his working on a digital gallery for just photos by Maks.

I find inspiration in my son and in my husband.
