I guess I can guarantee at least two posts a year to this blog, and they’ll both come in September. Today was Mary’s first day of preschool. After watching Simon go all last year and constantly asking when she would get to go, today was the day. It’s a fun exercise to compare the kids at their various different milestones, so here’s a link to Simon’s first day of preschool. She’s so little compared to him! Requisite pictures below.

First Day of Preschool
They love each other.

I officially have no more pictures that need to be processed. Well, I have no more pictures that *I* feel need to be processed. Others may disagree. Never mind the fact that I haven’t really shot anything in about a month and a half. I’m caught up, that’s all that matters. It may be another decade before it happens again.

I’ve discovered that taking a picture of one kid is pretty easy, compared to getting a picture of two. Today we took the kids out to try and get a decent picture or two for our Christmas cards. In keeping of the tradition of posting outtakes, here’s a small taste of what we had to deal with.

I am DONE with pictures!
Dude. . .relax

Sick on her birthday, but she still enjoyed her cake!

This is the final picture in the Mary Weekly set. As with Simon, the majority of Mary pictures from now on will be flagged Friends and Family only on Flickr. If you’d like to keep tabs on Mary and aren’t already a friend/family on flickr, let me know!

Happy 1st Birthday, Mary

On a stool, next to the oven. . . nothing good can come of this. She’s definitely one.

This weekly photo was delayed both in it’s taking (taken on Monday 6/21) and it’s posting due to sickness. Now SHE’s the one who’s sick, on her BIRTHDAY. One more picture to go, hopefully at her party on Saturday. My poor baby. Happy Birthday, sweetie.


Those two bottom teeth have been around for a while now, but are just starting to show up well in the pictures.


She ate her weight in strawberries.

By the end of 2 days at the beach, she was exhausted.
