These baby legs have got me swooning: Baby Legs

Look at Caroline's baby cousin. They are both diggin' their little piggies:
is this socially acceptable?

I felt like quite the American last wednesday on Lewis' birthday. We went to a local burger joint called Dickie Joes. I ate a beef burger with blue cheese, a handful of fries, and topped it off with an ice cream sundae! wow. It was amazing. Lewis wasn't as into dinner (oddly) but he had no objection whatsoever to his birthday ice cream cone.

What's Colson been up to lately? Well right now he's got a dress shirt halfway tucked into his underwear, his pants got wet so he's not wearing any. He's flying around the house with some toy or another and a pair of binoculars hanging from his neck. The other evening K.C. was sharing with me a mini sermonette when he said, "The only thing they have is hope." To which Colson pipped in, "Excuse me, hope is one thing. And the other thing is money."

Today at church as I was coming back to my seat where Lewis and Colson were sitting next to each other in the pew holding hands I heard Colson responding to something Lewis was saying, "...Right, Lewis. God, That's right."

Colson continues to love on his baby sister; he smothers her, in fact. We have to tell him to back off. It's true that he was the first person to really make her giggle and when I told him that he responded, "The first time a girl laughs a fairy is born. I heard that from Peter Pan."

He's been listening to a bit of Johnny Cash here and there and has started talking with a southern drawl. He is quite the adventure.

Lewis Turns Two!

Two years ago, shortly after Easter dinner, my water broke. We headed into the hospital to endure what was the most painful couple of hours of my life.

When he was born, I didn't even think to check to see if my baby was a boy or girl. I was only glad we made it out ok.

Now the pain is a distant memory as this little man has made his sweet little way right into my heart.

I can't believe my baby boy is two, yet I can't remember what life was like not having him shine in our lives.

Happy birthday, Lewis. Cheers to looking forward to a full and fun year ahead and to enjoying you as you are today.

Can I take you home?

A Lawson Morning Documentary

I spent this morning with the children at my folks' home. My dad cooked us omelets. My dad always cooks us omelets. And I always eat them. Because when you cook omelets that often for your children and their children you get a lot of practice. And practice makes perfect. So a stint up I-5 is worth the perfect omelet, among other things, too, of course. To top it off, the morning light was streaming into the kitchen, and I got quite giddy as my camera was calling me, beckoning me.

Lewis has found his way into Grandpa's good graces and enjoyed receiving the benefit of being in "the know" with the man of the house - Benefits include a VIP pass to the omelet stuffers - only he was the one getting a sausage stuffing.

While Grandpa was busy with breakfast, I decided to play a joke on him and go outside to take pictures, leaving all my children behind, letting them all to fend for themselves, Grandpa included. Muah hahaha! I couldn't help it. The light was perfect.

Strike a Pose

I've been teaching Colson a few things about my camera. He took this photo of KC and I after he prompted us to make a silly face. It makes me happy.
