Merry Christmas!!


Tyrannosaurus Wreck

When Ellis is upset, he makes the loudest dinosaur sounds, so I call him Tyrannosaurus wreck. Getting him a dinosaur for Christmas seemed like a suitable thing to do. Needless to say, they became fast friends. Ellis thinks he's a dinosaur!

Boat Feet

Already too long for his newborn clothes.

Ellis

Baby Ellis has been here for a little over a week now. He has changed our lives completely.
In a single moment, a love we never knew existed, feeds our souls like nothing ever before. I am forever full.
His first pic... he already thinks I'm crazy. It took at least 50 shots the get this peaceful sleep. Babies aren't easy to photograph...
 Snug as a bug
2 days old... our folks came and took care of us for a few days... breakfast, lunch and dinner!
His favorite place to be is outside on a stroll. The thing he loves most is music, especially classical.

Roy: the horse dog

Meet my brother, Roy the horse dog.

Orion's Belt

Sisterhood is a braid as strong as rope,
unbroken no matter how steep the slope.

Interwoven from our roots to our split ends,
with character of different colors, it still blends~ BC

Baby Bird Blend

Can't wait to meet our little lad. Blending pics of Michael and myself from our spring chic days.
Will he have green or brown eyes? Straight or curly hair? Will he bite his nails? 
I don't care, as long as he's happy and healthy.

Meet Miss Panama

Such a vibrant and loving culture.
Miss Panama couldn't decide on what color to dye her locks...
Here is a Portrait of Panama that I made, in all her glory.

Live like a waterfall...

Roar with enthusiasm,
Stay active,
Go with the flow,
Let your worries fall away,
Create your own music,
And immerse yourself in the seasons of nature.

26 weeks

Today is a big day... I can eat broccoli once again without forcing myself to do so.
Up until this point, baby bird wouldn't approve of such a thing.

Counting Sheep

This pregnancy diet is not easy for me. Constantly hungry, but not able to eat my regular portions. I'm nibbling all day long. This is an example of one of my 12 plates throughout the day that I can handle without feeling like I'm going to burst:
~1 measly clementine
~5 strands of cheetos, (Trader Joe's Baked cheese crunchies) so that makes it healthier, right?
~2 spoonfuls of cottage cheese
~2 grapes
~8 kidney beans
~1/2 an avocado 
Grazing among the avocado hills, 
are two sheep dressed up in cottage cheese frills.

While standing on their hearty limbs of kidney beans,
the clementine sun with cheetos rays light up the scene.

Having my #1 pregnancy craving of red grapes as a head,
I'm looking forward to counting these before I go to bed.

1, 2..... zzzz
Goodnight!

Our California turned Tennessee kitties

These girls have been to more states than most humans get to see in a lifetime, and to think that it all started under a house in Marina Del Rey... 
Back in 2009, on hallows eve my husband rescued these sweet little angels. He heard a crying from under the neighbors house. The moma was locked under the house for days. Michael slid through the crawl space to discovered that the sweet little alley kitty that we have been feeding canned tuna to everyday, had been pregnant. Her three little girls were nearly dead. We nursed them back to health by feeling them with a bottle, and they now live in Nashville area. Their mother was too feral to take in, but I wonder what she would think of their adventurous life. She would be proud.

Mabuhay in San Fran

When you walk into this cheerfully decorated children's shop, it puts a smile on your face. It's an art gallery for the younger heart, featuring both local and globally designed clothing, art and toys.
So happy that Naturehood could join the clan :-)

Cassis in downtown Boise ID

This little gem has the best selection of boutique baby clothing, toys gifts and books a child could ask for. If you are looking for the coveted "going home outfit", this is your place for tiny luxurious softness, and books for the growing mind. Naturehood is beyond content here:-)
Forgot to snap a shot while I was there, so here is a good old Google map image for ya.

Polliwog- Portland,OR

Polliwog is my favorite children's store in all of Portlandia. This family owned business offers one-of-a-kind products~ clothes that have style rather than logos, natural materials, organic fibers and toys without batteries and books with valuable lessons.
Naturehood is happy in this new neighborhood!
