The idea behind the some of these names (hazel & jane) is that we are creating an alias- a
mysterious female character.

Two Midwesterners and Their New California Boy….

It’s baby time! Seems like everyone we know is multiplying… which is fun for me.

Meet Michael, the son of two amazingly talented and loving people. When he gets a little bigger he will no doubt: play music, grow vegetables, go to Antarctica, love hiking, and have cute dimples just like his parents. But for now, he is moving to San Diego to start a new life with his parents, and we all wish them the very best.

This was the crib his mom slept in when she was a baby… yay for reusing!

See, you can kind of see that little dimple forming on that big juicy cheek.

I’m Back… and happy about it.

I am back from London and trying to climb out of my photo editing pile. I have lots and lots and lots of photos to work my way through… but in the meantime I am trying to balance my computer time, with some fun time. And this morning, although I promised myself I was going to work all day, I couldn’t resist an invitation to breakfast in Inverness to visit some of our friends and their new baby.

I wasn’t intending to take photos… it was just supposed to be a visit, but as soon as Edison woke up from his nap… without a word, Arann went to the car and came back with my camera… and so… I just couldn’t help it… but come on, how could you not take photos of this kid?

And really, I have a good excuse, he is literally the only baby boy I know. All of my friends and friends of friends are having girls…. so I needed some baby boy photos…. and these are some of my favorites.

This is Edison having his second plum ever…. fresh summer plums make for very happy and messy babies.

Taylor

This is Taylor. She just turned 10 and for her birthday she wanted to have a boy-girl dance party. Her favorite presents were a razor to shave her legs and a toothbrush with a picture of a new boy-band singer who sings when you brush your teeth. She is wearing her new favorite clothes she got for her birthday.

Unfortunately the party was not a huge success, because it seems 10 year old boys are not as into dance parties as 10 year old girls and so Taylor spent most of the time upset that her boyfriend was not acting the way she wanted. And by the end of the party there was a rumor that he was going to break up with her which made her upset because she really wanted to have a boyfriend for the fifth grade. Taylor’s mom (left) and step-mom (right) tried to make her feel better by giving her their relationship advice.

Moments later the grandmother’s ex-husband, who she is dating again, rough-housed with this dog until the dog bit his arm and made him bleed.
