A snippet of our lives.
I know it is the kind of thing I will want to
years from now.
So I will savor and cherish it now.
|us with our college friends and their little boy. :)|
|Noah trying to get them set up for a picture|
|There, that's pretty good!|
I sewed all of their outfits. :)
|"I got one!"|
|She just wanted to explore...|
|...and she was very competitive about who got how many eggs.|
|The blouse and the dress, both made from DS Quilts fabric I was lucky to find at Jo-Ann. Lucy's has linen for the yoke and hem, which I love. |
It was my very first time working with linen, and I find it to be lovely to the touch, easy to sew with and a bit more interesting than plain solid cotton.
Plus, it is supposed to breathe really well, making it ideal for summer, though I'm not sure anything helps when it is 110 degrees, which it is bound to be here in not too long...
|And here begins the uncooperativeness :)|
|I really love profile shots. |
Someday I want to make a pillow with all of our silhouettes, kind of like this one
|I can't put my finger on why, but this picture makes me think she looks like me.|
Plus, that lady at Whole Foods told me she does too.
I'm thinking of linen shorts for Claire in this pattern.
Off to cut fabric for my boy! :)
|Getting her first phone call (especially for her...she has been the main phone-answerer in our house for awhile now), from her friend Peyton. She was so cute, grinning fron ear to ear, talking about going to the park and what we ate for lunch, asking him how he was and if he wanted to talk to Mama... :)|
|planting pumpkin seeds|
|Do you see it? She sounded out and wrote all by herself "Claire's garden." She's been writing her name for a long time now, but this sounding out and reading/writing words, this bona fide reading is new and exciting! p.s. I added the apostrophe and tried to explain in a kid-friendly way why we use it, but, yeah, I don't think she understood! :)|
|Out on a walk on possibly the most beautiful morning ever. That Noah was with us (and pushing the stroller no less) definitely helped. |
And really, doesn't this picture just make you smile?? The backpack, the boots, the tiny bike, the sunglasses... :)
|Snow day!! It's always neat to see the geographical transformation, when it is sunny and warm and flat at home and not one hour later, mountainous and cool and snowy. :)|
|The only photographic evidence of my presence on this field trip into nature, except for the picture of me nursing Lucy that I thought you might not want to see... Anyway, I might frame this one, even if my bending down husband appears to be much shorter than me and Lulu is not looking up...|
|Opa towed the kids and my tentative Alex kept saying "Not too far, Opa, not too fast!" My fearless Claire was all smiles. :)|
|warming up with daddy|
