{phfr} Patrick Smiles Edition


Can mud be pretty?

I think so.

This is one of those rare moments when Mae isn't a blur of motion.  And as I searched for "pretty" pictures I'd taken this week my eye kept coming back to them:


Happy is always easy.  He has got to be one of the smiliest babies on the planet:


More Patrick cuteness for funny.  He doesn't fit easily into the sink anymore and it's nearly impossible for me to find time to go upstairs when he's awake to give him a bath in the baby bath.  

Poor kid.  It's not like he gets a ton of baths.  Per doctor's orders to avoid soap we mostly spot clean, but his hair badly needed to be de-Vaseline-and-Crisco'd and so I had to find a way to make it work yesterday.  The stock pot was perfect.

This was his all time favorite bath time ever.  The stock pot was definitely a win!


Poor Daddy.  Doing yard work with such good helpers.  There's hardly anything for him to do!

Or any space to scoop up everything when little hands are grabbing the shovel/rake/whatever he happens to be holding at the time:

  1. I think those are the clearest pictures of Mae I've ever seen. She is such a pretty little girl! You have such a lovely family <3

  2. I love the pictures of Mae! Patrick looks so happy in those pictures. I love big baby smiles. They're the best!

  3. Over from LMLD! Had to comment as the stock-pot-baby-bath just warmed the cockles of my heart! Total joy!


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
