 I cannot for the life of me get this girl to look at the camera and smile.  She's been teething and is moody right now. Ten months and this girl is a mover!  She crawls everywhere, stands everywhere and looks at me like she's unstoppable. She loves playing in her little kitchen we made for her and the boys.  Lots of baby babbling, squealing and her first tooth just came out today!  Her favorites: watermelon, sweet potatoes, avocado, black beans, bananas, Yes- fine, she eats anything I give her.  She still sleeps through the night and loves her one looooong snoozy nap in the afternoon.  Little miss has been demanding that we read five times a day by yelling and pointing at where we keep her books on the wall. She will do this every time we walk in and out of her room.  Throws a complete fit if we don't stop and read those darn books.

Life with Jane is full.  She's happy, healthy and sweet- I couldn't ask for anything more.  I wonder how we'd ever get along without her.  She's brought so much fun and happiness to our home.  I love my girl and her patience with me as we've had to figure out how to manage time with three babes.  She just sits and waits her turn and if I've forgotten her (it happens) she lets out a little yelp and a smile.  Tonight we put all the kids in the tub together- I think it's the very first time they've all bathed at once.  Jane was thrilled to be in the big tub, she usually gets the kitchen sink.  She went bananas in there with her brothers, so big and proud of herself.  The splashing and dancing did not end until I made her get out.  She loves her time with the boys and daddy.  Nobody can make her laugh the way that Griffin can.

At bed time we still sing our lullabies and rock.  The boys never really let me rock them for very long or cuddle them too much- but jane will sit with me, her head on my chest and hold my hand.  She'll look up at me every few minutes and point to the things around her room.  I could just rock there in the dark with her forever, there's nothing I love more.  Do not grow up my sweet, sweet girl.

Seriously, what?  Did I really not post these Christmas card photos?  I'm slacking in the blog department.  Blame it on the day job- three kids has got me in some sort of haze, man.  Moving on.

If you think these photos look somewhat reminiscent of The Sound of Music, good!  This is exactly what I was going for in my head.  Look at that mountain please, does it not scream the hills are alive?  There was snow on the ground, the children were in sweaters, the baby had a bonnet, all good things.  I love my dress and I love that I found it on clearance for 12 dollars or so- one hour before this shoot.  Love me some Loft clearance racks.  

Also, how cute are my babies?  Every second I look up they're breaking my heart again, growing up and things.  Griffin with that cutie smile and a comb over.  Avett, sweetly talking to his sister.  Most days he just scares the crap out of her with his loudness and crying.  He just SO LOUD.  Speaking of crying, I do believe each child took a turn during this 20 minute frigid, sound of music photo session.  Poor lydia, she gets stuck shooting all of our family photos.  At least the good ones.

Baby Jane, 11 weeks.

This girl is so much fun... lately she's always smiling and happy.  She's growing at lighting speed and we really need to find a way to slow this whole thing down.  I love every day I get to spend with this little peanut, my baby janey.
