this afternoon: Andrew started organizing the garage (it’s currently 10:27pm and he is still out there). the twins did not nap (Alice took off her pants and her crib sheet for the third day in a row). Anne played outside and went through three outfit changes (and ended the day naked). and Jane and I went shopping for a new bicycle, a drill for Andrew, and a surprise for Anne (some stuff for gardening, hence the gloves). #100daysofsummer
@mattmorizio was literally hooked in the lip, Phillip hooked through his own shirt. But countless fish were caught, giggled over, kissed and thrown back, and the day ended with ice cream for dinner. So we’ll count today as a total win. 🐠🍦and it just reiterates that @mattmorizio is our entire families catch of a lifetime.

This image makes me laugh and makes my heart happy. Here’s the story of what is going on so you can look closer. I have been working on repainting our front entryway. I was taking a picture of the job I had accomplished for the day when my husband came down the stairs and saw me outside with my camera up. He stepped into the doorway and flexed his muscles for me to make me laugh. You can see him there above the reflection in the glass and you can see me below taking the image. It is kinda the perfect image for us as a couple. In so many ways he is what makes this marriage so wonderful and he is what makes this little family as happy as we are. I don’t have enough words, which is something for me, to tell you what a fantastic man he is. If you met him I bet you would like him. He has an easy going nature and a kind and giving soul. Let’s raise a glass to all these guys just doing it right, being awesome people, loving partners, and father’s to write cards about! Happy Father’s day everyone! Go tell the dad’s in your life that you love them!
I LOVE babies. But NOT on a plane!
How old were your kiddos when you dared to venture on a flight together? How did it turn out for you?
I definitely waited for my own crew to reach at least two and a half... but then, possibly, the babies that joined our current trip were around that age two?
I honestly don’t know. What I do know is that babies are certainly free to explore the areal transportation. Or may be there was scheduled some baby symposium near my destination... Anyway, at this plane ride, I was thoroughly and completely surrounded by babies. One in front, one at the side, three at the back. And regardless of their age and levels of adorableness - each of them adorable in their own way... and each of them was similar only in strict adherence to a theory, that a red-eye flight is the the most ideal place for vocal exercises. Oh, little cuties launched and full dress rehearsal that would leave Metropolitan Opera suffocate in the tears of envy. With the minute precision, they took deliberate care to ensure that show must go on. All night long. Once one did them would pause to catch a breath, another one would instantly take her place and keep the arias glaring at full force. Sometimes they acaprlla would transform into a chorus. And sometimes, even into a dialogue, where one of them would challenge the other to a full fledge competition. And neither would fail to raise to the challenge.
Oh, it was loud... Than, suddenly, it stopped. Not a single one of them was making a wimp or a sound. It was beautiful... even deafening... And that’s when my own precious little angel opened his blue eyes and declared: “Mom, I’ve had enough of sleep.” While I was able to argue that 4 hours definitely not enough, he silently proceeded to wiggle, wobble, wimple in his seat.
It was hard to say what was affecting all my sleep efforts in a worse way: past audio, or the current kinetic... But at that moment I was thinking that the only ones more miserable than I could be only poor babies’ parents... they had not only to witness the show... So, how young did your ones started collecting air miles?
A RARE moment of stillness from Rylee Emersyn.
It’s been three whole months since I’ve randomly documented her life. I go through times of not wanting to pick up my camera, but then three months passes, and she’s totally changed and i regret not capturing it!
She can walk now.
She has a mind of her own.
She’s off formula.
She’s strong willed.
She’s my whole world.
Stay tuned for more of my wild one ♥️
@kimdenham reached out to me this week to see if I would photograph the birth of her first child. She wanted more than anything for me to capture his first few breaths, and those words kept ringing in my ears as I clicked away.
It was an incredible experience, and it gives me even more respect for the amazing nurses and doctors who deliver babies day after day.
Welcome to the world, Montgomery Denham Jones. I’m honored to have captured your first moments on earth.
