Baking with the Paines

If you are a long-time Bates fan, you probably know about the major transformation that Erin Paine went through soon after she married Chad. When she lived at home, Erin was known for having zero culinary skills to speak of, and she struggled to prepare basic meals. Now, she is a regular Rachael Ray who loves being in the kitchen, and the Bates family can't get enough of her cooking.

In the photo above, Erin and her three babies are baking Christmas cookies. (The recipe wasn't the greatest, so Erin says she isn't going to share it.)

Kade Smith was born on November 9th, which means he will be five weeks old tomorrow. Two weeks after he arrived, Taryn Yager traveled to Tori and Bobby's apartment home in Nashville to take photos of the family of three.

Taryn is a Knoxville-based photographer who specializes in newborns, children, families, and baby bumps. She is a friend of the Bates and has been featured on Bringing Up Bates.
