I don’t know how, but this girl just turned FOUR and this boy just turned TWO?! WHAT?
My threenager is no longer. She’s still rotten, but sweet. Driving me batty, but knows exactly when Mama needs a hug. Often too
smart and gets herself in trouble. (She has Nico make the bad choices for her and then rats him out. But she’s yet to realize we are
onto her game and she gets in trouble too.) She really is the most loving Jr mom. She takes care of babies like they are real. I
swear she’s running an infant daycare out of her room most days. If she had it her way, she’d have 3 younger siblings by now. Gorgeous too, eh?And this kid. Shew. He knows how to charm anyyyyone. He can empty my entire makeup case and apply it to himself, the floor
and the walls and yet with a little smile and bat of his eyes, I’ve forgotten he did anything wrong. (He did do that by the way.
Because Nori told him to while I was slammed with media requests. She even climbed up and got out my scissors for him to cut.)“CHEEEEESE” often gives him this hilarious underbite. I took these in November but it was still pretty cold. Nori was freezing and I told her she could get back in the car if she gave me a
good smile. Bahahahaa. Then Daddy decided to be silly behind me. 🙂Ninety percent of the time they are best of friends. But like all siblings, they smack each other, scream and steal toys in between.
And mostly make me never want to have another kid. And then they hug and kiss and then I want 4 more. We needed to update a cousins shot for Adam’s folks, so the other Paces met us for a couple quick shots. Don’t you love how
Nico is looking up at Nori. The cutest. Thanks for the family shots Uncle E!Unless Mommy is holding him… :0 Poor kid was cold too. But I had to steal a shot of him crying because people keep saying Pax looks like Ralphie from The
Christmas Story. I see it most when he’s upset. 🙂 I was so impressed with the kids. In the middle of Over the Rhine, I set up a tripod to get a group shot and it only took two takes!! The only thing that could make this more perfect is a baby girl! No, I’m not announcing anything, I’m just wishing a future
baby girl into their family. 🙂 For my whole life I’ve always gone to cut down a Christmas tree with my Aunt Dale. Along the years different people have joined,
with the last ten years being Adam. He even went with Dale when I was living in London in college! Now that we have kids, it’s a
different experience but still so fun. And giving an old rusty saw to two toddlers will keep any afternoon exciting. HUG ME BROTHERRRRR.Isn’t this just the cutest? I love it. We had a wonderfully relaxing New Year’s Day as a family. I hope everyone’s holiday season was delightful. How in the world is it
already all over? We have lots of exciting stuff coming up this year. Couple trips where I can’t wait to shoot! 2013 was a great year
and sure ended with a BANG!! 2014 has big shoes to fill! Thanks to everyone who has continued to support us! I hope I can
start pulling my favorites from last year one of these days soon. I usually have a lot more free time in the winter but we had
3 winter brides this season! Those blogs coming soon! HAPPY 2014! Heart, Melanie.
