Dominic, aged 25 weeks: We are nearing that six month marker! Oh so very close! This past week Master Dominic has grown his very own two front teeth. It's all very exciting and at the same time very final for me. No longer a newborn Laur, because newborns don't have teeth. He is also crazy for this remote control. He will go to great lengths to get it and put it in his mouth.

David, aged 2 years: What a busy week it was for him! He got his first hair cut in six months! His sister threw a rock at his face that left a tiny little mark on his cheek, as you can see it is too close to his eye for my liking. I recently invested in reusable swim diapers for him and Dominic and they look quite European running around with speedo looking things on. I shall call him Marcello whilst swimming in them. And finally, he has found Henry's load!!! Henry lost his load practically on Christmas Day and it was all quite disturbing for David. We assumed the load had ended up in the trash along with all the wrapping paper but! Henry's load was discovered under our bed! The world has righted itself!

Letteria, aged 4 years: My mother shared this garden butterfly book with her yesterday and she's been carting it around like a legitimate field guide, ready and waiting to identify any butterfly that should cross her path. This doesn't bode well for the butterflies when you consider the insect house and magnifying glass along with tweezers her Nonna also recently got her...

Past weekly shots here.



  1. look at those eyes on dom. swoon. and can we talk about the fact that i had NO clue what "henry's load" meant and i just don't wanna go there. glad a picture was there bc. well. NSFW. and letty has legs for days. stop growing child.


  2. Dominic is looking so different these days! And you're right, I do think he looks a lot like you. :)

  3. aww sweet letty with her butterfly hunting dreams!! m would be in HEAVEN if she could go looking for butterflies with her! :) and haha congratulations to henry! what a long time to be missing your load! and no newborns don't have teeth. that is nuts!!! how do babies grow so fast? once they're out of the belly that is...

  4. Good thing those butterflies tend to flitter pretty quickly. And that is a long time to find a missing toy! I'm sure there is some sort of missing something or other under the TV center though. Not moving that monster to find it though. Aww teeth. Those are pretty neat. I always liked Aria's gummy 3 tooth smile.

  5. Too bad the pause on that remote won't work on Dom. Or any of them for that matter. Precious. Yeah, that boo boo is a little to close for comfort. ;)


I love hearing from you. Honest I do. You won't find my response to you here, but in your inbox. F.Y.I.
