Nash's photography

Getting a new camera for my birthday means that I can let Nash do something he's been trying to do for months - use my (old) camera to take some pictures of his own.
Through Nash's eyes, here's his world.
This is his blog post.

"My little sister, Margot, is always reaching for something!"


"Here's my Daddy, I take a ton of pictures of him. This is only the 60th time he said 'cheese' in 10 minutes."


"My super-sweet train table."


"Here's my kitchen, where I spend a good part of the day makin' dinner for my Mommy."


"This is me, the artist, Nash."

What we do in the cold...

Here are the two kiddos at the scene of the crime. Laundry Basket Mischief.


Margot is quite a climber. I really have to keep my eye on her! This is how I found her the other day...


She's been walking pretty much exclusively for 2 or 3 weeks now. And she is sturdy on her feet. She just looks adorable with her little blonde curls bouncing around. At least her Mommy thinks so.

Nash loooves "projects". Projects, according to Nashy, includes: stickers, paint, beans, glue, q-tips, cotton balls, play doh, scissors, lots of construction paper, contact paper, tissue paper, pictures, dried pasta and on and on and on and on. And he is very proud of his work, and absolutely LOVES having it displayed in his room. Talks about it every single day. We're also starting a rotating art display in our living room of Nash and Margot's work... yep, Margot loves to color too!


Nash spends a lot of time looking through this, so I turned it around on him and took a picture. He thinks it's really cool. Sorry if you think it's weird, but this blog is for him :)


She likes to undress herself. Yes, that phase.


Nash is way into cars, trucks, buses, dump trucks, recycling trucks, tanker trucks, hiccup trucks (pickup trucks- hee hee), trains, combooses (as he calls cabooses), box cars, airplanes, etc. We like to teach him to build them with blocks. He's pretty good at making an airplane!


We've been stuck indoors because of the super cold weather, and we're all a little stir crazy, I think. We're having a few warm days now and I'm really looking to this long weekend and getting out and having some fun. Hope you all do too!
