Lissa and Dan both had the day off for working the weekend, and it also worked out to be Lissa’s 31st birthday, which was convenient and also quite nice. Dan hid little (and big) presents for me throughout the house and I am still finding them. He was very sneaky — I think he must have been inspired by the whole Easter egg concept!


After helping me open some of my presents, Kivrin went to school in the morning while we continued to work on babyproofing projects around the house. After a lovely lunch at Paisano’s, we picked Kivrin up from school and headed to the mall for Kivrin’s much-belated 6-month portraits. Okay, so she is much closer to 8 months than 6 months, but at least we finally made it to the portrait studio for a great photo shoot with our favorite Sears photographer, Jeanette.


Here is a preview of the photos on flickr, although if you are related to Kivrin by blood, marriage or friendship, you will probably be receiving some of your very own prints soon!
