More room in the Mackhouse!

Category: Journal

We are all breathing a big sigh of relief here in the Mackhouse. My parents finally moved into their new home this weekend. We spent the weekend helping them move and putting things away. Then it was onto our house as well with cleaning and setting up the space for the girls to use. Rhian is moving out of her room upstairs to the giant sized room downstairs and Tristan gets his very own room, well he will have to share it as a small office for me as well. 

It is nice to have the extra room as 7 people in this house was a little crowded. Although we do miss my parents being around a little now. I think they probably miss being around Tristan the most. We will just have to visit them lots and use it as an excuse to use their hottubTongue out

Tristan has continued to grow like crazy as of today he is now 13lbs 10oz. Wow has he grown a lot. It is hard to imagine what he was like 3 months ago, being half that size. He seems to want to grown up in a hurry. I have been really having fun with him lately. He seems to love talking to me and everytime i sit down with him he just coos and giggles and makes all sorts of sounds the whole time. He sure is one smiley baby as well.

We have been trying to grab some good smiling pics of him but he always moves so much and the lighting in our house is not that great. But we will keep trying. So stay tuned in!

    I haven’t seen him for a couple months now – I’ll have to remedy that soon!

    Oh how he is turning into such a little man! right before my very eyes! I’m sorry that your live-in help had to move, but you know they aren’t too far away and I’m sure they are ecstatic to have a new home!

    If you can change the ISO on your camera, a higher number will allow more light in and you can use a quicker shutter speed to keep your images sharp, also use a smaller aperture f-4.5 or 5 if you zooming in (no worries about depth of field on zoomed in shots of the little guy) and you will get more light in there! Just a little tip 🙂 If you already knew that, just tell me to shut up and stop being redundant. :O)

    Holly – yes you will have to come on by and visit. Welcome to blogging btw

    Hope- thanks for the tips. I really jsut need to sit down and experiment. Hopefully something cool will come out of that.

    Papa – we have pretty bright ones in that room it is just a very dark room.
