{pretty, happy, funny, real}

Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life.


 My pretty baby loves to be held by her daddy.

My first attempt at making a quilt.  I wasn't sure about putting these fabrics together at first, but I think they go nicely.

The top of Katie's shirt is pretty soaked, but I liked how nicely what she was wearing went with the colors of the quilt.


 This goofy girl has been obsessed with chopsticks since we got take out from a local Japanese/Chinese restaurant.  She wanted to learn how to use them after being thoroughly impressed that her daddy could use them to eat sushi.

She's happily trying to catch a goldfish or two.

The girls had off from school last Friday so Ellie asked her big sister to draw her a chalice and host like the one on the candy moldshe found on the kitchen counter.

Katie is quite happy with the crinkly ribbon tag square I made for her.  It's one of only a few toys that she genuinely seems to like.

Look at that, I made it into another picture.  Bryan's still not used to taking pictures with the new lens

Sometimes happy little smiles turn into goofy faces in a split second.


Madeline loves picking up Katie and carrying her around.  Katie, however, does not always have the utmost confidence in her big sister.  I think her expressive eyebrows say it all.

Minutes after Katie rolled over for the first time she tried again, but her arm kept getting in the way.  Look at how her left leg and hip are off the ground.

She didn't like that Bryan, Madeline and I (Ellie was still at school) were standing around her waiting for her to roll again.

  4. I'm learning that a quilt can look good with all sorts of combinations which would surprise you. And, what you choose for the binding also makes a great difference to the whole. Have fun with it!

  5. Good job on the quilt! And your baby is gorgeous :)
