Dominic, aged 19 weeks: He's no longer stationary. If we lay him down in one spot and check on him a minute later he could have rotated or somehow wriggled his way off the rug, etc. He is getting stronger with his tummy time and dare I say, might actually enjoy it for five minutes. I think we've gotten to the we have lost all the hair we are going to lose stage. Let's start growing it, shall we?

David, aged 2 years: This is his signature "I'm tired" move. He even does it when you are holding him, legs wrapped around you, worming his arms under his chest and his hands by his belly. It's always been some kind of comfort thing I guess? He won't sleep this way anymore, not since he was a baby, but he still does the move. Also! I am letting his hair grow out again and I am just starting to see the first signs of a curl and it makes me have all the heart eyes. His hair here was perfect!

Letteria, aged 4 years: I am sixteen going on seventeen.... that's what I think in my head whenever I look at her and catch a face like this. But we have a very little girl problem, one of nail biting. She has an ingrown nail on her hand and her foot, because don't we all trim our toenails that way? They are looking quite bad and painful and we need nip this in the bud. Or the nail.

Past weekly shots here.



  1. I love love love the wiggle move stage. I always got a kick out of finding Aria up underneath the coffee table. Always backwards.
    lol to the toe nail biting. I wouldn't put it past Aria. She likes to finish her snack in her cup then put her foot in it. Not quite on the same level as chewing on her toe nails though.

  2. um look at that sass! oh girl. :) and dom is just the happiest of all happy babies and that's adorable. david is adorable with long hair. long hair for the win! (as i grow mine in solidarity too :) )


  3. When I was little I bit my nails all the time.. it was terrible. They were gross and they hurt. My mom put this stuff on them that left a really sour taste in your mouth and it worked. I stopped biting. Also.. not sure how much of a girly girl Letty is but I find if I keep my nails painted at all times I don't want to bite them.. because hello I don't want them to chip and look ugly and I also don't want nailpolish chips on my teeth lol. And maybe stressing how gross your hands are because of how many things they touch and why she shouldn't want that in her mouth? lol.
    The boys are so big and cute.

  4. Haha David. Wow Letty looks so old!

  5. the second pic is fab...
