The Bride and The Stylist

Autumn insisted that I sit down so that she could make me pretty. Pretty apparently consists of a dress-up wedding veil.

Climbing, climbing, always climbing.

Now that Nicky can walk, it is IMPOSSIBLE to keep him in one place. He is into everything, everywhere, always. The worst part is the climbing because I worry about him being safe. But even though he sometimes falls, most of the time he does it like a champ.

Just for kicks, I documented one day of his movements.

In the morning at the desk:

In the afternoon at the desk:

On the toy garage:

On the storage containers:

On the guest bed:

On the ottoman:

On the kitchen table:

On the kitchen table with a hat:

On the kitchen table taking a rest:

And, this is my favorite. He climbed onto the couch and cuddled up to watch Calvin play a video game. A rare moment of stillness:

Just one day of his movements. Can you see why it's completely exhausting trying to keep up with him?

A New Haircut

Autumn was insistent that she get a new haircut before school started. She wanted to go short. I begged her not to because her hair has been so cute lately. She insisted, so I gave in and scheduled the appointment.

Here she was before:


Autumn is thrilled with how it turned out. I'm a little sad, but she's adorable no matter what. To celebrate her new look, we went out for mommy/daughter Italian Ice. It was delicious. I'd call the day a success!
