The kid-comparing continues (did you catch yesterday’s post?)! Here are the 8- and 9-month side-by-side photos. What do you think? Can you believe Baby Powers is 10 months today?! 8 months old and smiling… (also, just because: the girls in the same outfit and bonnet – though a few months apart, age-wise) 8 months old […]

side by side sibling photos: 6 & 7 months

Well, well. I’m not sure how best to follow up a blog post that went insanely viral. I’m going with the “do nothing for 2 months then post pictures of your kids that only their grandparents care to see” approach. Also these photos aren’t even recent. I do enjoy the side-by-side sibling collages but since […]

side by side sibling photos: 3, 4 and 5 months

I’m only about four months behind on putting together these little photo collages, which isn’t bad as compared to some other projects I’m behind on.

Just The Two Of Us

You and me, three days a week for six straight hours. You, me, the dog, the errands, the cleanup and mess-making, the NPR in the background and the openness of the day before us like classified ads. We could do this? or maybe that looks fun? We could see what our friends are up to? […]

A little Tuesday list…

I just calculated the number of quesadillas I have made in my lifetime and I arrived – quite conservatively – at 1,560. There is a grosgrain ribbon in my house that will not go away. Everywhere I look, there it is. It’s red and white striped and would look lovely as a gift wrap accent […]

Two Conversations

These are two conversations that made me laugh yesterday, and if I don’t write them down I’ll forget them, and if I don’t write them down here, then why do I have a blog? Right?
