march 11. watching daddy shave. he used one of my razors (with the guard on) to pretend he was shaving, too. see that hero worship in his eyes? wants to be just like daddy.
march 10. peace out, Binkie.
march 9. a friend's yard this afternoon. photo taken with my iphone.
march 8. i told you this kid loves to read. "the letter O is broken, mama! fix it! fix it"
march 7. two plows, three grown men who do this for a living, one dog, and one set of chains cannot overcome today's measly snowstorm. must be pretty embarrassing for them considering we pay them to plow our driveway and one truck's been stuck here for almost two hours...
march 6. sometime in the middle of the night last night. he looks like such a little boy. i love his feet and how he has to sleep with about fifteen trucks, two blankets, one blankie, one binkie, one pillow, a couple books, a stuffed lion, and a tent every night. and he sleeps like a baby. wish our baby would follow suit!
march 5. what our life here in vermont looks like before 9 a.m.
march 4. em and her buddy andrew hanging out in a tent. i think daddy is going to want to have a talk with andrew if they keep sneaking off together...
march 3. the view from my kitchen window. this is eye level for me. literally what i see when i do dishes. i have been trying to capture the mounting snow outside the back of our house for some time (mostly from the roof), but since this part of the house never gets any sun, the photos have been subpar. But since it ain't getting any sunnier, i thought i'd share the view from here. ridiculous amounts of snow.
march 2. how is it that my 26-month-old was messier about eating his bagel than my 10-month-old?
march 1. jax at the door to our music together class, the purple crayon in woodstock, vermont. snow much? i wish he wasn't standing directly in that creepy tree's shadow, but the glare off the snow was so bright that i didn't notice at the time.
february 28. our birdhouse is still uninhabited. really, who could blame them?
february 27. my first photo taken on my phone with the instagram app. it's not a great picture (whiny child, bumpy road, lots of bright snow brightening up the background) but i'm just really excited to play with this4. and it was free!
february 26. i'm cheating. this picture is almost three years old, taken in kauai, hawaii. It's a secret little place that i am going to tell my friends diana and tim about tonight when we go visit them, and since i know she checks the blog, i wanted to get her excited for her honeymoon! heaven.
february 25. on the lookout for spring. nope. just another foot of snow. spring will have to wait.
february 24. i told you i love these puppets and was going to go buy more. such a fun way to play
february 23. how come he never makes eye contact like this when he is facing the light?
february 22. who's ready for spring?
february 21. tiptoe through the tuplips
february 20. jax pushing his cousin (and good buddy) tommy. loved having family around all weekend!
february 19. (iphone) jax taking em for a walk for the first time. 20 degrees and windy. watch out for snowbanks, jax!
february 18. showing grammy love and sharing stickers. what a great treat to have her and auntie aj here!
february 17. (taken with my iphone) exploring the new blue man group exhibit at the local montshire museum. worth the price of an annual pass
february 16. we're fired up for the first cocktails & crafts event! are you?
february 15. jax and his buddies andrew and colby at the purple crayon in woodstock. surrounded by nifty arts and crafts supplies, but playing with play-doh, which they all have at home. of course.
february 14. happy valentine's day to my beautiful children! little treats for you, with love xoxo
february 13. jax and my iphone sitting in a tree...
february 12. after two and a half years of thinking they were lost, found our passports and travel journal today. passports are replaceable; our daily thoughts and memories written down during our honeymoon while sailing the greek islands is not. thrilled and relieved.
february 11. iphone! iphone! iphone! (my husband is the best)
february 10. Note: I have been called out by a husband who shall remain nameless. I have been getting lazy and not posting a picture that I actually took that day; they've been pictures that I've had the time to edit that day. So in the name of honesty, I deleted my old picture for today and will post this one instead.
em's nap today. she resists it so much that she usually falls asleep sitting up and then falls over into any number of positions. i will continue to document this strange phenomenon.
february 9. i make chocolate look good.
february 8. hello, naked baby!
february 7. this pretty much sums up who he is. a few of his favorite things.
february 6. pic from daddy's blackberry: jax on a forklift in BJ's. how daddy kills time while mommy's away.
february 5. my husband. the vermonter. he's so handsome.
february 4. so excited about big boy underwear, he has to drum!
february 3. a leftover rainbow from our craft yesterday. something to brighten your day.
february 2. no groundhogs. just baxter, attacking an ice chunk. get it, baxter! (and yes, for those of you sunny californians, that's our yard)
february 1. changing an electrical outlet. daddy turned off the power so as to not electrocute himself. he asked jax to go run and get him a flashlight. jax came back with his helmet.
january 31. anticipation is the worst part of catching a snow ball!
january 30. self-portrait. me and my baby girl.
january 29. remember frosty, jax's first snowman? let's just say he's been neglected.
january 28. woodstock, vt. there's actually a picnic area and river underneath all that snow! jax is looking for it, to no avail.
january 27. jax and daddy. staying cool!
january 26. eating is a messy business. especially when manual dexterity is still in the developmental stages.
january 25. stuck in a snow bank. good times. thank god for friendly snow plows who are always up for helping a mini-van in distress.
january 24. the temperature at 8:30 a.m. -14.6 degrees. and i have to take jax to gymnastics. great.
january 23. crowing!
january 22. no coat. no mittens. no biggie. this is vermont, people.
january 21. percussion.
january 20. showing he loves her. finally.
january 19. my lunch. 4 zillion weight watchers points. started making brownies only to discover we had no eggs. would be a pity to let the batter go to waste. and apparently i've been known to do this before. something in my subconscious?
january 18. low lighting. my biggest enemy. used "aged photo" preset to minimize the graininess. didn't help much.
january 16. one of my best friends, dawn, and her son, connor. rocking their patriots gear, to no avail. trying out a lightroom preset, color cp 3. a little green but i like it.
january 15. already posted this on the blog, but it's what i got. oh i just love them.
january 14. slacker again.
january 13. he's giving her noggin, she's playing hard to get. ooh, this dvd cover is so interesting!
january 8. january 9. january 10. january 11. january 12. i bet you didn't think my kids went this long without having their pictures taken. stomach bug.
january 7. a bit too washed out, but i like how the flower is pinker than the rest
january 6. pretending to take a picture but really watching tv
january 5. hello, beautiful.
january 2. january 3. january 4. didn't plan on doing this 365 thing so no pictures. already a slacker.
january 1. meet frosty, jax's first ever snowman. Melissa and Doug toy screws make the best eyes.
