there are two dried up, motionless little earthworms on our back patio.
they have been there for several weeks.

because they have not moved, oliver believes they belong to him. cute little wormy pets.

he will stand at the back door and call out to them
"hi mommy wormy. hello baby wormy."

the other night, he was riding his bike on the back patio. being ever so thoughtful,
he called out to them
"watch out little wormies. watch out. i am riding in circles."
and he rode in an extra wide circle, careful not to get his wheels too close to his tiny friends.

i love children. i love that they are this sweet. that they are innocent
and funny (histerical really). my children melt my heart a million times a day.
sometimes i think i could have a dozen.

and then i glance across the room at my new closest companion
mr. breast pump

and i think
two is a very fine number.

TWO of my favorite subjects to shoot:
two lovely little lovies,
a very dynamic sister duo

say hello again to juliana + rebecca:

thank you J + R.
always so much fun ladies.




(this one is for my mom who's relentless hope always amazes me)

hope is the thing with feathers
that perches in the soul
and sings the tune without the words
and never stops at all.

fall in love: miss mia.

i put miles in the sweetest pair of brown & white stripey pajamas this morning.
i remembered oliver in those same sweet pajamas.
i swear it was just yesterday...

and now

as i sat on the couch feeding miles this afternoon
i glanced out the window at oliver
standing at the edge of the back patio
in a t-shirt and rain boots
his pull-up around his ankles
a steady stream of pee-pee watering the grass.

i had three immediate thoughts:

a) how did my little man get so big SO fast?;
b) who told him he could pee in the grass?; and
c) i hope our neighbors are not outside.

time is so much more fleeting now that we have littles.
must be why
we take note, we dote over little moments, all the things they do
big, small, silly or sweet.

and we take pictures. lots of pictures.

meet miss mia (i dare you not to fall for her):

what a bella!
what a gorgeous family.

i hope miss mia's obsession with her little feet is not too fleeting.
it is the sweetest.
