very merry

Oh hello there!  It’s been almost a week since I’ve blogged, and I hope everyone has been busy sharing their time with friends, family, and loved ones.  We certainly have.  William hopes YOU…

…had a very Merry Christmas, if you celebrate.  We don’t, but I couldn’t think of anything else creative to say while posting this picture of William pointing.

My sister Stephanie had William last week when his school was closed and I still had to work.  She made an impromptu stop at the studio with William and her kids.  Well, Stephanie has always been a briber, especially when it comes to getting kiddos to smile for the camera.  Apparently, she bribed William to smile (though clearly unsuccessfully here… good thing he’s cute!) with M&Ms.  She thinks it’s hilarious since I literally don’t feed William anything like that at all (personal preference).  I’m not mad because how could I be mad when she takes William to the studio for pictures? But… I was sure to load up her kids on sugar last time I was with them.  Yeah.  You’re welcome. 🙂

The night before Stephanie watched William, Audrey woke up in the middle of the night and told Stephanie, “I know how I’m going to get William to smile!  I’m going to say ‘what what chicken butt!'” Oh the mind of a four year old!

They’re both getting so darn old.  These two plus Jacob make the three musketeers.

Doesn’t that look like the cover to a CD or something?  No?  Just me.  Alright…

How about the three of them on Christmas?  When we actually celebrated Chanukah with my immediate family.

Back to studio shots…. and the best baby ever…

…with the wildest hair ever.  I know I say this at least once a week, but he is turning into such the little boy.  His words increase by the hour (literally!) and he grows bigger by the day (literally!).  Looking back, the newborn stage went by quickly, but this toddler stage is FLYING by.  I know I’m biased, but in addition to being extremely smart, silly, loving, and sweet, William is quite possibly the most beautiful baby ever!

Stephanie knows how much I adore black and white photos.

Anyone and everyone agrees that William is definitely a “Williams” (my maiden name).  He has all the classic Williams features, so it’s no surprise that people repeatedly mistaken him for a brother of Jacob and Audrey.  Do you see it?

Such cuties!  I adore all of them!

How has your last week been?

  1. Biased or not you’re right that William is really adorable – a little heartbreaker right there?! Your sister’s pictures are amazing. … and I like how you’re still paying her back to this day ;). Though I bet her children must have enjoyed the extra candy at your house.
