Growth and Our Morning Routine

I finally remembered to do the kids’ photos with the giant measuring tape. Actually, Aaron may have been the one to remember. Ilya has grown about one inch since he’s been home and Lena has grown TWO whole inches!

It has been warm here, wonderfully warm. I promised myself when it got warmer, we’d go out every morning before lunch. All 6 of us (me, the two little humans and the three big dogs) would go out for a walk. We went out on Valentine’s Day and it was SO sunny…

We didn’t go out yesterday, because some of Aaron’s family was visiting. But today, we went out again and it was a bit different!

I learned dense fog makes a lot better photos than bright sunshine!

This girl has too much personality.

She was telling me she knows that the train is that way, but she can’t see it.

Ilya has a tendency to get almost peed on during our walks. He always looks so disturbed when Cache lifts his leg while Ilya stands a few feet away. But, hey, I warn him not to stand so close every single time. (And no, he has not actually gotten peed on… yet.)

It’s not MY fault I almost peed on him.

Ilya and Lena play this game, where they look each other in the eye like this, and then one of them takes off running and the other chases…

This sums up their relationship.

Doesn’t he look like an advertisement for LL Bean? Just ignore the Nike logo and the fact that LL Bean doesn’t sell pre-ripped jeans.

I asked Ilya to make the face he makes when he doesn’t like something. It is like this, but minus the cute smile.

This is just proof for Amy that Josie is alive and well… and still muddy.

  1. Oh my goodness, I want to smooch Josie's muddy little face! I didn't realize how much I missed her until I saw her face. She looks just as she should:)The kids are adorable as always. And yes, foggy days & overcast days are the BEST for taking pictures!

  2. They are SO adorable, and it warms my heart to see they get along SO so well (ok, so surely they fight too lol, that's what they're siblings for, right?), but those pics are really heartwarming. I am sure they've been of huge support to each other through the entire process. You are one BLESSED momma!

  3. Yep, cloud cover is best for outdoor pics. Softer light, like a softbox. :)We had that weird fog/mist all day yesterday too! Glad it cleared up, but when it left it took the warmer temps with it!
