Snuggling by the tree

A rare moment when Marlo isn’t shouting marching orders to her sister through a megaphone.

Sans les lunettes

I know. You’re wondering where her glasses are. You are not alone.

Adventures in babysitting

Not so much an adventure in finding help as it is a lot of luck and living in a state where everyone is exposed to kids.

Sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching…

… stuffy head, fever.. why yes I DO memorize all cold medicine commercials. What?

Cliché or tradition, it never hurts to take inventory of they who make my life so wonderful.

Even when she couldn’t walk or crawl she liked to give him hugs.

A portrait of the moments leading up to the pounce.

Vintage Bobo

Not so much terrible at two as she was terrifying.
