April onetwothreeFOUR

This guy.

We're doing no-TV again and so his brothers beg him to read the comics to us one more time? I overheard him reading the Children's Bible to Ivy after they were supposed to be asleep but I didn't say anything, because The Bible. 

These two.

There's a bond there that in a weak moment I might just admit I am jealous, the way she looks at him and the way he responds to her.


During the recent hot spell, I was scrambling for warm weather clothes for the kids and went through a stack of hand-me-downs for Gray. He- the it's too shirty child - examined one of Carter's old tops with a collar and buttons and said so matter of factly "I'm going to have to start getting used to tags." And he put it in the keep pile.

my April FOUR

This is reality. Noah's shoes are never tied, and Gray well. There's Gray.

I love them so. 

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 monthly photos here.  


  1. I love the sibling-ness of this. I just do.

  2. Oh I just love it - one... then two, ... then three and then the fabulous four!!! You love your kids so much that I can't help loving them too!!!

  3. Gray cracks me up. He always makes me smile.

  4. I always wanted an older brother! Ivy is a lucky girl to have three of them!! :) Hope you're doing well, Steph! Miss you!

  5. Wow, a reminder. I remember that everyone always told me that my son's childhood will pass before I can blink! It is, and one day he will be reading the Bible to a littler one and I will be so proud. Your children are lovely. I am grabbing your button so I'll remember to come back and visit often!

  6. He's going to have to get used to them?!? I love it. Glad he's getting used to them.

  7. I used your idea to be our #3 pregnancy reveal. :) http://iamstricklyspeaking.blogspot.com/2012/04/three.html
    And I LOVE love love these pictures at the beach. Beautiful kiddos. I die every time I read the phrase "it's too shirty". So hilarious.

  8. I adore adore ADORE your family. Your children are the best. <3

  9. Yeah, it's the Bible--you've got no room to say anything. Read away until the wee hours, I say ;)

  10. I'm still keeping with the 3 on 4 trend, got my photo today and will post tonight... :)

    Love your order of things... so sweet and perfect!

  11. What awesome pictures!!! I love how you constantly manage to be places with awesome backgrounds.

  12. love, love the ivy and carter photo.
    i always look forward to your four on the fourth!

  13. The Bible! Just in time for the Holy Week and Easter eh? Wish I'd have another boy and then a girl like your lovely bunch.

  14. I love these sweet moments! And your older two look so BIG! Hope you guys enjoy a lovely Easter weekend :)

  15. I'm always amazed at how they LET YOU take their pictures in a group like that. I tried yesterday to get four of them together. I ended up getting two in the pic and only one looking at the camera.:) You're lucky to have such a great collection of photos of them. And they always look pretty happy...when I get all mine together, I usually have lots of "Mom, why are you making me do this????" faces.

  16. These guys are gorgeous, and take such a great photo. You can really see the bond they have through these pictures.
    Off to read some more of your lovely blog x

    Come visit our Easter Link Up Party!

  17. You have beautiful kids, Steph. I so love the photos, specially the one with Ivy and Carter. That is so sweet!

  18. Great photos. Ivy and Carter are so sweet, and GO Gray! You know, it had to be HIS idea, right Mom? ;)

  19. I like your "4th of the month" photos and musings so much.

    Our girls often stay up to talk & giggle past bedtime, which I don't mind as long as they stay in their beds. :)

    Also - Liv went through the same thing with tags. Then, she turned three and was fine with them just like that. Overnight.


  20. This may very well be my favorite four post yet.


Your comment is gonna totally make my day!
