finn: baseball season has begun for this cute face.
dot: the nap of a fourth child.  you take it where you can get it.

phoenix in february: clothing optional


here's a little peak into the life of a phoenix baby in the middle of february...
limited clothing, no shoes, outside all day, messy face, eating snap peas off the vine.
it's a pretty good life, i must say.


if you are somewhere snowy or cold, feel free to come visit.
we'd love to have you :)

lucy:  my sweet goose.  love her in her uniform and braids.
finn: finally getting one of those top teeth. not sure we'll recognize him with teeth...
dot: this little lady is getting too big, too fast.  and i'm not ok with it.

on why that post-nap time of day is one of my favorites.


the first reason is obvious.  post-nap would imply that a nap was actually taken and that right there is a good enough reason to make it one of my favorites.
however, i really love post-nap time because it is one of the only times my usually active little baby will let me snuggle her and just be still.  she is happy, but still a little sleepy and usually a little goofy. 
she has taken to sleeping with her bunny annabelle these days, which is super adorable, so i guess i will add that to my list of reasons, too - listening to her wake up and talk to her stuffed bunny.  "hi, annabelle!"


dot insisted that annabelle needed to be held up, so she could see harry bunny out the window...

there you have it.  post-nap deliciousness.

{april 2013 - april 2014}

jack: another day, off to another soccer practice.  
lucy:  teaching her little sister a song in the backyard.
finn: he can't not smile.  seriously.  even when he's getting in trouble sometimes...
dot: mismatched shoes and a scraped up nose.  life is never dull with this lady.

"a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, for one year"
{april 2013 - april 2014}

jack: if he's not playing soccer, he's playing foosball.  this gift won christmas this year.
lucy:  a desk in her room, a desk in the playroom, a kitchen table... and this is where she does her homework.
finn: drooling over catan. (in finn's case, literally...)
dot: a baby bonnet, blue chalk and a mini chimi... the randomness that is dot's life.
