christmas card photo.

Here is the photo I used in this year's Christmas card:

Here is the unedited version:

Do you think the camo fleece pants and polka dot leggings should have been kept in the shot?  I lay awake at night analyzing these decisions.

instagram.

I am obsessed with Instagram.  Here is a picture I took with my iPhone at the top of the Empire State Building.  It's okay, but not the best.
 
Then I ran it through Instagram, and after a crop, a filter and a boost, I got this:
 
 
I need to have this on a wall in my house!

Another beautiful photo of Caroline taken by Kathy Wolfe for Beibamboo.

beibamboo bambino.

 
A couple weeks ago, Pittsburgh-based photographer Kathy Wolfe had Caroline model for a new Finnish clothing line, Beibamboo.  Here is a sneak peak of the photo shoot!  It was such an exciting experience, but you know what?  The girl WOULD NOT SMILE.  Thankfully, Kathy is absolutely gifted beyond words, so I knew that between her talent and Caroline's oh-so-pretty (smile-less) face, it would work out just fine.  This picture is just so sweet, don't you think?  Oh, my little girl!  I'm pinching myself right now.
 
The Beibamboo clothing line is made of - you got it - bamboo!  You wouldn't believe how soft (and eco-friendly) it is.  All of the clothing is made to feel extra soft against baby's skin; even the tags and zippers are on the outside, rather than the inside.  The clothes are very sweet, simple and easy to put on and take off.  The company has won several design awards in Europe recently, and they are trying to make a presence in the US market.
 
I have to mention that if you are in search of a baby/child/family photographer, you have to check out Kathy here.  Not only does she do amazing work, but she is also super fun to work with.  Professional photo shoots always stress me out, but Kathy is so relaxed and easygoing.  The first time I met Kathy was when I had her take photos of six month old George. 7 years ago already.  Oh, how time flies!
 
I hope to share more pictures soon!

timing is everything.

I was going through pictures I took over the summer and came across these two.  I just love this picture of Teddy and how the two sheep in the background seem to be posing for the camera.  The second shot was taken right after the first.  They say timing is everything

a lesson of sorts.


Here Caroline, would you like to play the xylophone?


No!  Don't hit your brother!  Hit the instrument!


Yes, baby girl, just hit the xylophone.  What?  You think it's boring?


No, Caroline!  Leave your brother alone!


What are you doing now, girl?  What is this? 
Are you taunting?  Mocking?  
HYPNOTIZING???
And I thought your brothers were bruisers . . .

growing up with brothers.

"Mom, Caroline is awake.  Can I go in her room first?" Teddy says to me after Caroline's nap.  "Yes, go ahead and I'll wait," I tell him.  Teddy goes into her room with George not too far behind him.  The baby's cries stop and I listen at the door.  The boys like for me to wait because as soon as the baby sees me they lose her attention.  It's a routine; almost daily.  Often times when I walk in I find all three of them in her bed, as I did today.  I chuckled when I noticed that one of them located the Boppy pillow (which she really doesn't need anymore) and so thoughtfully placed it around her.  Such attentive brothers.

This picture is blurry but I only had one shot to take this picture without them knowing I was watching from the doorway. 
Later this afternoon George was taking his grand old time changing his clothes in the sunroom after a dip in the backyard pool.  Finally Kevin said, "Hey, George, put some clothes on man!  Your sister is in the room!"  Then Kevin and I shrugged our shoulders and decided that Caroline will grow up to be one of those girls who does not get bothered or grossed by anything, and doesn't get too upset about the weird things that MEN do.  She'll be one of those girls you hear say, "Oh, don't worry about it.  I grew up with BROTHERS!"

how times change.

On a day like today (90+ degrees, humid and yucky) . . .

I'm dreaming of a day like this (20+ inches of snow, crisp and pretty) . . .

the first lady.


Kevin and I had the opportunity to meet Michelle Obama recently.  I was so excited!  How often in life does this happen?  To spend some time with the First Lady of the United States?  I planned ahead in my mind what I would say to her.  Nothing too cheesy, nothing that would take too much of her time, nothing that would require anything of her.  Just something thankful.  Something appreciative.  I mean, what a sacrifice it must be for her to do her job!  So I thought about it.  After careful consideration I decided that I would simply tell her how thankful I am for her work with veterans.  I recently read something about her push for employers to hire them.  Perfect.  So the time came and as soon as I saw her in all of her radiance, confidence, beauty, and well, height, and everything else, I turned into a complete idiot and squealed, "I AM SO EXCITED TO MEEEEEET YOU!"  What a cheeseball.  So I didn't manage to say anything that I wanted to say.  At one point she asked me how old the kids are.  I just looked at Kevin thinking, uh . . . do we have kids?

not your typical lavatory.

Can you guess where this picture was taken?
(Hint - it's decommissioned.)
