January FOUR

getting ready for the picture

I almost missed it by a day again. Totally thought yesterday was the second. But we made it. It's the January Four!

Cheshire cat
I love this one even though it looks like Noah's head is growing out of Carter's shoulder.

Pretend to be sad

So to get them to loosen up sometimes I prompt them to make a silly face or think about ice cream or something like that. Here I said to act like they were sad. They totally committed to the part!

January FOUR part deux

I think this is when I begged, "Smile like you love your mom!" and then Ivy must have thought I said pose like you're mom. And Gray? Well, that's Gray.

I've been hearing with the new year that some of you are also posting monthly photos of your kids, which is wonderful. Please link up in the comments so we all can visit, too!

I used to take photos of my kids on the first of every month, now it's on the fourth. Four for four... get it? You can see past month photos here.




ED: Two birds one stone Small Style


(l-r) On Gray: Tea Collection (take 25% off sale items with code 25OFFSALE), on Carter: Mini Boden tee + Old Navy pants, on Noah: school tee and Old Navy pants, on Ivy: Truly Mine dress and Baby Sara leggings via Zulily , headband from Gigi's.

  1. I love your pictures of the four together. I love Ivy's hair cut (she's probably had it forever and I just noticed but I'm a dork like that). :) I hope you don't mind that I stole your idea.

  10. Just look at those four smiling "I'm having fun" faces. I really need to try harder at taking more photos. I have the equipment but need more time! And more willing participants ;)

  14. I didn't do mine until today and I want to do it on the 3rd since I have three. :) I just can't seem to get it together but I guess one day difference isn't that bad. ha!

    I've added it to my calendar so that I can remember now (hopefully).

    Gray's faces crack me up! ;)

  26. Love your idea, and have been copying you since last spring. :) Your children are adorable, and so many of your posts make me feel "normal." Thanks.
    Not sure of the best way to link up, but here's one to copy and paste:
