Morning Stoop

Three sets of bare feet, and as many sets of pajamas - and the puppy of course.

2 milks, 2 pieces of swirl bread, and 1 orange juice.

Every morning the fours of us step out on to the front stoop of our porch.

Fig explores the yard. Big and little brother drink and eat as they talk between themselves.

I sit on the first step and try to say as little as possible :)

The morning air sometimes cool, more often now - thick, lets us know.......it is still summer.


We slowly wake up.

The two boys talk more and start to explore.

I am now able to respond to their questions.

"Mama, What's this?"  "Mama, Look at that."  "Mama, What is that noise?"


After a few more minutes, it is off to the races. :)


Thanks for reading.

Asheville Summer 2014


Recently we took the first of several road trips we will take this summer.

First stop. Asheville, North Carolina.

Here we spent time with one precious little nugget we don't get to see that often.

My most favorite thing of this trip was the three sweets you see above. All birthed within a span of 16 months, these little cousins are three birds who love to flock together.

Every time we get them together, it is the happiest and most comfortable reunion. When we have to part ways, they look at us parents with such confusion......as if to say "Hey, he belongs with me.....where is he going."

I love being with them as they bumble along through their day - a band of three.


One lazy afternoon, we strolled through the neighborhood in search of treasure.

Oh, my goodness, this moment was one of those where time stood still as we took in all the noises, smells, and sights through the eyes of our three little ones.


So much we found together.


Including a round, hard object we weren't sure about......


Until he peeped his little head out and started on his way.
