sweet kids

i had so much fun with these 2 little ones the other day.  i’ve photographed this gal i think 4 times now and it’s amazing to see her grow over the years – shy and cheeky much like little A. her little brother just kept filling my pockets with treasures.

this morning little A said to me after hearing little M’s explosion, “i bet the little munchkin is proud of himself”. yes i hear myself in that statement;

“it’s my room. i can do what i want.” We’re reading Charlotte’s Web at bed times so i assumed he was weaving a web but no, it’s for a circus tight rope show.

it's my room i can do what i want

i just hope he can untie them as well as they’re knotted;

water painting – a happy sun and a happy little balloon – this is looking a little like Bob Ross;

M’s new favorite spot. i can’t believe he digs the maya wrap of all slings. so far so good but he’s only 14lbs and sure to grow heavier on my 1 shoulder;

we’re spending more time at home than i think i’m comfortable with during summer but they are both so happy at home until about 2/3pm when we finally get out to do something.

another beach day

Spanish Banks @ low tide to watch the skim boarders, dig more holes and dip our toes;

Littlest bean is a mellow fellow but he startles easily. i felt his little body tense at the sound of each wave rolling at our feet. Sometimes Little A’s quick enthusiasm sends Little M’s arms up over his head before his lower lip turns upside down trembling. It’s so very dear and we’re quick to reassure that all is well with the world.

Little A was really proud of his baby brother for grabbing hold of the umbrella – he requested i take this photo.

Post beach take out. There was no getting around it. Sweetbean M was excited seeing his big brother so excited;

Himalayan High.  i’m really trying to minimize our waste but i’m exhausted trying to explain it in a creative way to my 6 year old.  He says “yes, but can we still get one?” and so we did and it was good. on my list of things to acquire and carry on us are our own cups and some stainless steel straws.

I think tomorrow will have to be a day without sand. The beach is a love hate experience for me.
