I don't know if you've noticed, but things have been a little slow around here lately. It turns out it's challenging to parent a new baby, take care of and homeschool two other kidlets, run a home business, and blog. Who knew! (You can see a day in my life here.)
I thought something fun would be just to show off a few of the cute pictures of Karsten since the last time I posted a Wordless Wednesday when he was not yet two months old. He just turned five months and is a chunka-chunka burnin' love, but I've edited pictures only for the rest of two months through three months. Yup, photo editing is one of those things that's hard to fit in as well!
Anyway…here are some adorable pictures of all three kids from December and January!
Mikko & Alrik writing on the sliding door with a gift of window markers from Nikolaustag
Big brother Alrik
Wild & woolly weather
Warming up with "shirmp," as Alrik calls it
Or with other snacks, as appropriate
Taking in the Christmas lights
The big & little brothers. I wouldn't have been in the shoot except for one invisible fact: Karsten had pooped all the way up the back of his "little brother" onesie. I'm holding multiple prefolds in place on top of it so we can take the picture, pronto.
On the beautiful oceanic quilt Shannon created
It's business casual if you don't wear pants.
Those tiny fists!
The kitties insisted on making an appearance.
Christmas morning, in matching jammies
Christmas cracker fun
King baby is not amused.
Doing a geography box from Green Kid Crafts
Baby Hulk smash!
The danger of having such deliciously squishable cheeks
is people take advantage.
Zonked with his dad in one of the mei tais I made
Visiting the Pacific Science Center with friends
If you look closely, you can see Karsten in the other mei tai I made,
upside down, BabyLegs swinging.
Visitors have paid court, my parents and Sam's mom among them.
Karsten enjoyed many new acolytes!
Mikko's so patient with his baby brother, even when it's not easy.
Mikko and Alrik both are incredible helpers and so helpful and adoring.
All of us
