life 2013

happy new year! i finally finished our “life 2013” film. i was going to post this yesterday but i had a few minor technological setbacks. what a great year it’s been. i thank everyone for the kind words and encouragement this past year. mostly, i thank my children for allowing me to stick this camera of mine in their faces almost everyday.

month eleven and the baby is the first to crack. i had my money on Kingston. kids can be so unpredictable. only one month left in this series, thank goodness.

as you can see from Kingston’s face, he is sick of the monthly shot. just two months to go guys–we can do it. i think?

“We all have souls of different ages”

jt, you are many, many things all rolled into one. you are funny, witty, smart, independent, and a perfectionist. you are moody, pouty, loving, adventurous, and compassionate. you love to fish, dress up, play sports, and play your Wii. you have a tremendous imagination that can tell a thousand stories. you are an inquisitive little soul with so much behind those blue eyes. you are very head strong, and at the rip old age of seven, you think you know more than your parents. you are perfect in every way and we wouldn’t change a thing about you.

tomorrow this little guy goes to school for the first time. he’s been here with me, in our home, for five years. growing, learning, laughing. i am so happy for him because i know he will love it; but i am also very emotional because time seems greedy when you become a mama…

do you think they’ll let me continue to take this shot every month until they leave for college?

a girl and her dog

DSC_6362_fb

this bond. our dog bianca and our daughter boheme. bianca thinks boheme is her baby. i always find her curled up right next to her baby, loving on her. she kisses her all over and boheme giggles. she keeps boheme company while i am in the shower or cooking dinner or helping with summer reading. boheme cries for bianca if she can’t see her. i know this because as soon as bianca comes to her, she stops. i tell bianca everyday what a great mommy she is–her tail wags because she knows it’s true.
