We are Erik and Jennifer Lankford...married for 11 years! We are the proud parents of Isaac Joseph who was born June 15, 2007 and Hadleigh Jane who was born July 15, 2007. They were placed in our home when they were 10 days old and adopted SEPTEMBER 12, 2008. On November 2, 2010 we welcomed Libby Louise into our family and we couldn't be happier. In July of 2012 we welcomed Isaac's biological brother to our family. Jaiden's adoption finalized on Feb 14, 2013. On November 21, 2012 we welcomed Mollie Ryan in to our home to bring us up to 5 children. We live in Aspermont, TX. I have been doing photography for 9 years. I shoot with the CANON 5D Mark II in hopes of buying the 1D eventually. My favorite lenses are the 70-200 2.8 IS and the 85mm prime! I LOVE LOVE LOVE photographing families, children, newborns, high school seniors and maternity!!
Well I have just found out about some natural fertility supplements for men and women. So I am trying them out. Actually WE are trying them out! I read on a forum that I am on and several of the ladies recommended this. So YES we are officially trying to have a baby again and REALLY don't want to have to go through Fertility treatments with all the drugs etc. One..I don't want to put those into my system again just yet and Two...It is VERY expensive. So please be praying for a MIRACLE!! We are hoping this will do the trick.
We purchased a 3 month supply. Most of the ladies on the forum said it worked in the first 2 months they used it. It has been a LONG time (over 2 years) since they did the surgery to get my tubes un-blocked, so I am hoping they are still clear and that this will be God's timing for us. Above all else we want what is best for us and our children and that has to be in God's will for our lives. If this doesn't work we have talked about doing in-vitro, but we will have to save for that! (which will come AFTER Isaac's circumcision: TBA shortly)
We have had some super fun times with Grandma this past week! She came in last Thursday and my kids have had her going non-stop ever since. Erik had to go out of town through Saturday so Grandma got to "babysit" while I worked. They WORE her out! Playing outside, going for wagon rides practically everyday, a trip to SA, church on Sunday to hear Daddy preach, swimming Sunday evening, Monday at Sea World and friends over tonight! WOW! Grandma leaves in the morning and we are sad to see her go! I have some pics with her on my camera (will post them soon), but these are all from Grandma's camera!!
No he IS NOT drowning! I actually DO have a hold of his hands. Grandma thought this was funny b/c it looks like we are standing right there and NOT even paying attention to him!
Now at Sea World. We watched the Sea Lion show and Shamu and spent the rest of our time at the water park. Both kids played so well and had so much fun. It was not crowded at all which was so nice.
This is my FAVORITE image! I think it is so funny!
We had a busy July. I have been terrible at keeping up with what we are doing. We started out July by going to Colorado to visit my friend Lauren and her family!! On our way we stopped in Amarillo to spend the night with my cousin Alison. Here are some pics of the kids bath! HILARIOUS!
The last night we were in Colorado we got a babysitter and Jerrod took us to dinner. It was so yummy and so much fun to go out without our children!!
