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

Waving to daddy... home early! 

It's the most heart melting treat to watch Little Smith's affection for his daddy grow and grow. They get up bright and early each morning (lately that's been 5:30AM and I think we would all be okay if that pushed just a little later- ahem), and play and squeal, when pop's at work I'm asked several times a day to go over how he took the 'big big bus to the underground choo choo train to the big big city'- so exciting!, and when he gets home before bed time Little Smith lights up with pure joy. The best.

A belated Happy Mother's Day to all of you! We spent mine working on that new kid's bedroom and at least there's a coat of paint now- it's just what I wanted. I'm a little behind here (and in the garden and everywhere else) due to kid's room obsession... tonight is my final evening of classes for the semester, so hopefully I can do some catching up.


  1. So sweet! Love that happy face :)

  2. What a doll! His bond with daddy will likely continue to grow when the new baby comes. My husband and son often pair off, leaving me and the girl to hang out together. I have to make an effort to spend time alone with my boy. :)

  3. Aawwww such a happy and bright smile! His eyes are beautiful.

    Btw i've followed you on bloglovin, hope you'll follow back too! Thanks :))

  4. YAY for the final evening of classes!!! And for getting the kiddos room done too of course lol. So adorable to see Little Smith grinning like a cutie!

  5. beautiful photo! belated Happy Mother's Day :)
