The best part

"Welcome to the best part of the day!
The part where you and me become we."
~Winnie the Pooh






I think the best part of motherhood is the part where you are really together with your kids. And by together, I mean playing, cuddling and living in the moment. I don't do it near as often as I should.

I could spend all day kissing Sophie...her adorable pucker kills me, and I love that she spontaneously gives kisses all the time.

I hope she never stops.

My mom took these pictures in her backyard this weekend. No worries, I'm not trying to steal her thunder. Remember, I watermark photos to deter the thieves, not to be snobbish. :) Thanks for these great photos, Mom!

  8. I got my hair cut on Friday. I finally resigned myself to the fact that I can't have long layers or trendy dos, it's gotta be a bob for me, or else ponytail land. So, a bob it is.

  20. Lara, I love your hair that way! One thing I miss about Utah is straight hair. I have wavy, harder to control hair out here where we have humidity.

  21. LOVE IT! SO Cute... I was wondering who took the pictures! Good job GRANDMA! It's fun to see how fellow bloggers look.
    In your avatar or whatever, you can't tell what color your hair is. You are such a beautiful fun mommy!

  22. Those are beautiful photos (and beautiful subjects!), and I love your hair! I'm glad to see pictures with you in them—I know how that is, since I'm the photographer in my family/circle of friends, too. I never know how to act in front of the camera, because I'm usually behind the lens!
