11/52

a portrait of my child once a week, every week, in 2013

Snuggling with his besties, monkey and firetruck.

part of Jodi's 52 series.

Hope you all are are having a Happy St. Patty's day! I've got a good chunk of Irish (my maiden name is very Irish... I'd tell you what it was but then you'd google it and find embarrassing school projects- it's always the worst stuff that ends up on line!). Anyway, I love St. Patrick's day and while I no longer party until the wee hours, we still get out our green and celebrate. 

We enjoyed an afternoon of catching up with friends at their lovely new(ish) place and Little Smith tested the limits of their childproofing. He did pretty well, but he kept finding a way to weasel into the master bedroom, making himself comfortable lounging on the bed as though it was his own. He's not shy! I usually make cabbage soup and soda bread, it didn't happen today so we're having a re-do tomorrow.

And just a splash of green in honor of the day.

  1. I didn't even know it was St. Patrick's day until a few hours ago! I would have sworn we were only in the 10s or 11s of March. I should unpack my calendars? We may be doing a do-over ourselves.. Love these pictures! The last one is TOO CUTE.

  3. Very sweet pictures! He looks so happy. :) I basically forgot it was St. Patrick's Day until this afternoon. And I'm half Irish. The shame. One year I will get a party together.

  4. Such a cute dude. I love his long hair. We didn't do anything special for St. Patrick's Day. Maybe next year.

  6. My son had a monkey stuffed animal version of what your son has! Monkie was the only stuffed animal he loved & when he got worn to a thread paper we had to hunt down an exact duplicate. He still has that one, sitting on a shelf in his room {the original is safely tucked away in his baby box}.
    What a cutie little Smith is turning out to be!

  11. What a cutie in green! Some cabbage soup and soda bread sounds divine right about now. Although I must be part Irish because that always sounds so, so good. Happy belated St. Patty's day!
