A Panoply…

…of Beatrix.

(Annie I learned that word from you and have been dying to use it.)

I don’t have time to articulate thoughts this morning, as we are running out the door to go fossil hunting, but have a random bunch of pictures of Miss B that I want to share.

While I do have her napping in her little playpen, she must be laid down already sleeping, the naps are brief, and when she wakes up and realizes that I am not in the room she immediately starts screaming. She’s really something. I don’t care. I don’t believe you can spoil a baby. Larkspur was a wonderful baby who hardly cried, slept through the night in her own little basket at 6 weeks, and is now a HOLY TERROR.

Hating it.
The kids found this old wig that Jonny used to wear snowboarding (don’t ask-he says it kept his head warm) and wanted to wear it and get their picture taken. Well, all of them but Seth and Larkspur who refused to participate in the fun. The other kids’ pics are on facebook. They are pretty funny. Moses, Ezra, and Keats were all into it and made a lot of funny faces. Beatrix only kept it on for a second.

Beatrix has been pulling up to standing for weeks now. I doubt she’s going to wait until 15 months to start walking like Larkspur did as she’s only just under nine months old now and already doing this.

Okay-we are off to “site 5” woohoo!


  1. I figured it out. Thanks

    too precious and cute for words.

  3. Elijah looks just the same in crib!

  4. Too cute in the wig! She looks like an entirely different baby. I think I prefer the Mohawk to be honest. Speaking of which she does appear to be showing signs of red in her hair. I think the best you can hope for is strawberry blond. Spoil her all you want. She's only 8 mos old once in her life (and 9 months, 10 months, 11…) The point is to simply enjoy her no matter what her age. Worked on my shawl all day today and thinking about getting set up with two needles to start my legwarmers tomorrow. May as well do something for myself for a change. Right?

  5. Love these photos. Ash has the same reaction to his crib.

  6. Found your blog today…Love it! Your daughter's a cutie too!

    Oh my goodness, the pic in the pen is hilarious! LMAO!Clearly your child has been jailed and is screaming her innocence at the injustices foisted upon her. Dangling from the rail, desperately calling for attention to her plight. Sooooooooo cute!

  8. Yes, my one easy baby is now a terrible two… my most difficult baby is now a 7-year-old angel. Go ahead and "spoil" her all your want. 🙂

I love to hear from you!
