God, please don't make it rain...

"God, please don't make it rain because I want to blow my bubbles. Pretty Please?" --Madeline Grace

I overheard her yelling this loudly to God on our back deck today. So cute. Clearly I have a Washitonian child!

Love my Moby Wrap *bellingham photogrpaher*

Clara is a very persnickety baby. She isn't colicky, she just knows what she wants and cries until she gets it. Mostly that "something" is sleeping on my chest, or Chris' chest... or she just HAS to be held standing up. She fights sleep, thinking she might miss out on life. It's really cute, but tiring for all of us. So my saving grace has been my Moby Wrap. There are so many different carrying styles, and it is so soft and comfortable. Clara has been a happier baby since I've been using it. Coincidence? Maybe. But that's fine by me! Here is Clara bundled in the Moby. I'm doing the best I can photographing her with my camera in the air and me shooting blindly!

Cheers,

Soccer Mom *bellingham photographer*

I experienced my first season of being an official "Soccer Mom." It was everything I hoped it would be---and more... OK. So I really had no expectations since I still know nothing about soccer, and I'm a Harrell. All Harrell boys are soccer players, and I don't know how my husband looked passed this "flaw" of mine when he chose to marry me. Luckily for him, Madeline has taken a liking to the sport. I love the Whactom County Youth Soccer Association because the young kids play games of 3 v 3 so they can learn the sport better. Of course there's still a lot of random cartwheels on the field with these 5 year old girls! Here's to our first season of Soccer! Great job Madeline scoring your goals!

Cheers,
