Claire, Photographer Board


As part of our scheme for putting things on the walls of our house, I thought Claire might appreciate seeing her photos displayed. Danielle had the idea to make up a cork board with ribbon and fabric for her to hang some of her photos on.

Claire helped with every step. Quite a project for her. And she seemed pretty stoked to have it hanging over her bed. So, project success!

Superman Throws Down On Batman


I really want to make a No Gang Signs reference, but that jumps from DC to Marvel, sooo.

Shortly after this, Harper decided to put on Quinn’s footie pajamas. It was homage to Chris Farley. Hilarity ensued. As I tried to snag a photo, she fell down and Claire literally slid in for a photobomb.


My kids are coming into their own styles of humor and I love it. Proud papa.

Just The Calm


Not quite two weeks in and this picture is a good example of Quinn. She’s easy so far. Granted, she seems to think night is day. But, well. That isn’t so bad.

Honestly, there’s a not insignificant number of times that I’ve forgotten we’ve got the third baby in the house because she plays it so cool. Maybe there is no storm coming with this one. Maybe we should go for four. Maybe that’s the sleep dep talking and I should go to bed. Pay no attention to the man behind the blog. I SAID PAY NO ATTENTION.

“I’m The Boss!”

Claire is turning in to quite the mimic. We’ve been watching DC Cupcakes and Cake Boss as a family show. The girls have been enjoying it because, well. Cake.

Yesterday, Claire randomly pulled out the “I’m Buddy, I’m the Boss” line. She’s developing quite the comic arsenal. While I was writing this she was using her magic wand to spell her family into jungle animals. Danielle asked her who was the King of the Jungle and Claire immediately said “I am.”

SOOO. We’re either doing something very right or very wrong.

Do You Wanna Dance?


Claire asked Harper to dance. And it wasn’t to a Frozen song. You guys. I love that movie and I love Idina Menzel. I can’t stress that do much. It’s my second favorite Disney movie at this point.

I love that my kids know all the words to the song. Claire can sing the whole thing without a track. Harper even knows when to shout “Let it go”. It’s wonderful. But, well. Basically see here.

Things are continuing. People are healthy. We are all tired. That’s really all I can say definitively about that.

Hold Up A Second, Gotta Check My Twitters


HA! I just saw this on the photo stream as it played on the Apple TV. This is one that the hospital staff snapped for us. I’m actually checking this picture:


I wanted to make sure it came out clear enough to read! You definitely can’t ask for a do over on those. For example, there’s a photo I wanted to recreate from Harper’s birth. But, it’s outside the hospital. I’m just going to go back there one of these weekends and grab the picture. Can’t go back into a surgery for just like one picture people come on.
