I heart this city

I have lived in Portland for most of my life, and in my neighborhood for most of my life.  I love it so much!  And we have the sweetest neighbors too.  I am so incredibly blessed!!!  Thank you God!!!

These photos are from those difficult early days when William first came home from the hospital and we weren't getting any sleep.  What a hard adjustment that was!  We all survived it though and are currently thriving!!!

I heart fall

We take walks nearly every day as a family.  We live right by a butte, so we are lucky to have a beautiful place to walk.  It is really important to us!  Great stress relief!

The Thumb is Discovered!!!

The Thumb is Discovered!  What can I say???  I thought it was a bad thing, but actually it's a really good thing, but then in a couple of years if he's still doing it, then it will be a bad thing, again.  LOL!!!  Long live the thumb!!!

Sweet Slumber

Ok, I am addicted to how beautiful my son is when he's sleeping, as I'm sure any proper mother is!!!!  C'mon all you mamas out there, you know you feel like that too!!!

hello happy

I love how concentrated William gets when he's studying his toys.  He doesn't so much play with them as study them.  It's hilarious because he totally gets it from his papa.  How is it made?  How does it work?  Etc...yeah.  I'm not like that AT ALL!!!!!!!  ADHD right here!!!

family at play!

We are a super playful family.  We try to not take things too seriously.  Since Aurelien and I are both passionate, sensitive artists, this is REALLY important!!!
