Harper has started to request to eat at the big table with all of us. I love this picture of her at the table this morning eating her breakfast.

I ran across this today and like it enough to share...

Hope works in these ways: it looks for the good in people instead of harping on the worst; it discovers what can be done instead of grumbling about what cannot; it regards problems, large or small, as opportunities; it pushes ahead when it would be easy to quit; it “lights the candle” instead of “cursing the darkness”....

Didn't pick up my camera today for too many reasons to discuss on here... Another Iphone picture from our evening at Sea World yesterday. At least I still posted. I'm just patting myself on the back for posting something today.

At Four

Four years ago you made me a mother. It changed me in ways I never anticipated and filled me with love like not any I had felt before. That day is etched so deeply in my memory.

I went through today remembering the details of your birth day so vividly it makes it impossible for me to believe it was four years ago. Our first night together feels like yesterday. You so tiny and new... me so unsure in my new role as your mother. I hope those memories of that day stay with me like that forever.

But time marches on... and seems to march a bit faster since I have become a mother. At four you are still my sweet boy. You are so kind and caring. You are a bit cautious and apprehensive at times. You are so silly. You love to dance. You love your sister with everything you have. You protect her and look out for her.

You are all heart. You can still get upset when I leave... and always tell me you missed me while I was gone. We are so close and have a connection most days I can't explain. My sweet, sweet boy. I love you Sam.


My 4 year old 'boy'...

Did some engagement pictures for our previous nanny tonight. It was so nice seeing her and I loved being able to take their pictures! Here is a little sneak peek...

Then... and Now!

I spent some time with one of my closest friends I met in college yesterday. We lived together in grad school and we have tons and tons of great memories together. The first picture I am going to guess was taken in 2000- the second last night. So fun to put them side by side- thanks Amy for the idea:)

Birthday Celebration

We celebrated Sams' 4th birthday yesterday at the Science Center. It really was such a great party and so wonderful to see so many close friends. Our good friends Jamie and Ross and their baby Finn from Oregon were able to make it and it was so nice spending time with them after the party. Sam really enjoyed himself.

Nothing like an evening spent with old friends...

Sams' first birthday present from my mom and dad... a cool space shuttle toy with aliens. He loves it. He is turning 4 Tuesday and we are celebrating his birthday this weekend. I really just can't believe my baby is 4.

My sick baby girl who is starting to feel better today....

Monday, July 12, 2010


I didn't pick up my camera today. Harper woke up from her nap with a pretty high temperature and was glued to my side. Her fever came down and she seems to be doing much better.

Instead I will post another picture from yesterday. This picture captures their personalities perfectly. Sam looking a bit cautious- Harper laughing out loud. They couldn't be more different and I couldn't be any more in love with each of them...

Today was the perfect Sunday. We headed out to the park and then met up with my parents for lunch. The kids really had so much fun and enjoyed the day. I can't believe my boy is turning 4 soon. In these pictures he looks so grown up to me.

Caught up with an old high school friend when they were in town today to take some family photos for them! It was so nice to see her and their daughter was such a cutie with the most beautiful blue eyes.
