L has it. And bad. The memories of the traumatic births of our two children have, apparently, completely faded from her mind. Tristan Davison is mostly to blame, of course; If he hadn’t come along and been so stinking cute, we wouldn’t be where we are today.

Meet Tristan Louis Davison:

…he won’t be a little boy anymore. Someday soon.

Completely. Utterly. Irredeemably. Unabashedly! I never did anything in my life to warrant the blessings heaped on me by these two kids. Which makes them even sweeter. Like money for nothing.

Emmett now seems to be entirely over his recent bout with pneumonia, and Ava’s been crazy about getting out into the piles and piles of snow that still linger after our recent storm.

Our poor little buddy boy has had a rough week. Activities included falling down the stairs and pulling a full mug of coffee off the counter and onto his head (who knew he could reach the counter?!). There is nothing the kid won’t get into.

I suppose my choice speaks more to my blindness to any flaws of Ava’s or Emmett’s than it does to the technical merits of this photo, but gosh, my heart just swells when I look at this. The crystal clear aquamarine waves and powdered sugar beaches have nothing on these two.

Boys! Sheesh. Go figure. For every emotional challenge we had with Ava when she was younger, Emmett presents a physical equivalent. Over the weekend I watched him scramble up the *raised* side of his crib — from the floor — and flip himself over the top rail and onto his mattress, where he looked up […]

Gosh, I take lots of pictures. Lots and lots and lots. Sometimes I run to get my camera because I’m so excited to capture something I’m looking at, and other times, frankly, I have to drag myself to snap a shot. Sometimes I look at my camera and just can’t bring myself to touch it.

It’s really cool to see how Ava and Emmett interact with each other as Emmett gets older. Mostly, it’s still Ava acting upon Emmett, but he’s increasingly an active participant in their games. Like last evening, when they got decked out in beaded necklaces and cowboy hats. Crazy kids. Emmett also still doesn’t seem to […]

Spent quite a bit of time taking pictures over the weekend. What else is new, eh? Anywho, here’s one of the shots I got of the boy. He’s cute! Also, he loves cars (CAH! CAH!).

Our friend Danny alerted us to the hitherto unknown info that you can — and probably should — eat kiwi fruit with the peel. At first, I was incredulous; those peels don’t look very appetizing! So I conducted a test. Using Emmett. Of course.

I was sitting with Emmett in the living room the other day, listening to Ava cry about something or other out in the kitchen, when I looked into this face and said, “Emmett, why don’t you go give Ava a hug?”

I love it when Emmett looks out the window. Which he does a lot, especially now that he’s developed a passion for vehicles of all kinds (end especially tractors). In this shot, I don’t think he was looking at anything in particular, but then sometimes it’s difficult to tell with him.

Dear Emmett: You turned 17 months old yesterday, and I couldn’t help but think of your life’s very first moments, as I watched you running down the sidewalk–dragging a pumpkin on the ground–last night. As you tottered from house to house in your tooth costume, I was thinking about your big blue eyes and dark […]

No, your RSS reader isn’t messing with you. This is a new post! I wanted to put up what turns out to be the closest I could get to a shot of Ava and Emmett together in their tooth-themed Halloween costumes:

Emmett had a great time at our office Halloween parade last evening, and he didn’t even eat a single piece of candy (though he did carry around a Snickers the entire time)! Here’s a shot of him in his tooth costume.

I was changing Emmett’s diaper two days ago when I looked down to see him smiling at me and sticking the tip of his tongue out of his mouth. “That’s a really funny, cute thing to do,” I thought to myself. Then I went right back to changing him.

Emmett, I apologize. I’m sorry that the posts here haven’t been filled with the flowery paeans we lavished on your big sis when she was little. If it’s any consolation, the time we would’ve used to write those posts has been spent getting to know you (also, there haven’t been any recent posts about Ava, […]

I realized over the weekend that I’m way behind in getting shots of Emmett. Easy enough to rectify, fortunately.
