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

Embracing January.

Every time I hear someone complaining about the heat during the summertime, I remind them that here in Austin we have 3 beautiful, doors-open, windows-down, al fresco seasons.

Yesterday, we packed our lunch sack, scooped up Uncle Cory, and loved the warmth of the sun on our cheeks. We celebrated 13 months in the life of Eddy with Pirate's Booty and a yellow bell pepper.

And on any sunny day, no matter the temperature, this is what you can find our girl doing:

We call it "getting her D" (vitamin, that is) and it's what she is doing as I type. Near the end of her daily siesta, she likes to toss back and forth a few times, her four long legs saluting the sun. It's my very favorite thing to catch her doing. Then, she comes to the back door all toasty, covered in grass and looks at me like, "Is there a problem?"

Did you catch that sweet little mamacaseprint on Eddy? ;)


  1. Your little man is the cutest! (Puppy too!) Oh, and your blog + shop. :) Haha! Is that an amber teething necklace, and has it been helping your little man? We've been thinking about getting one too.
