it's a shame i couldn't get this little guy to smile...

he drooled on his mom, then looked at me like this:

matthew | 9 months

matthew's current accomplishments:

+ climbing the stairs
+ growing a mohawk of curls
+ storing toys in the vent

noah (my nephew) is awesome.

we hung out with my grandpa at the assisted living this week. the best place to sit is the solarium. tons of sunshine, plants and puzzles. bottomless cups of apple, orange or prune juice. noah and i sat and discussed toy story 2 and 3. he's all about 2, but i argued that 3 is much better. we also went and saw the birds where an old lady told him she eats little boys. it scared me more than it scared him. his new favorite thing to do is call everyone "poopy guy." my sister and i hid our giggles while my brother corrected him.

i love my family.

matt + kelly | wedding

two great families came together on a cold december day. the bridal party braved the cold and snow for some photos outside, then headed back to the FIVE event center for an evening ceremony. family and friends helped with the personal details throughout the day to make this wedding come to life. kelly and matt are adorable and their love is very real and contagious. kelly loves everything winter and helped me see the beauty in it.

the harriet island bandshell protected us from the wind.

"look warm!"

there was a gorgeous full moon that day.

the best man is also kelly's brother. so awesome!
