More pictures. Really?

I think this may be one of my favorite ages. Smiles, cuddles, unconditional love, sleeping through the night (most of the time). I love watching Brittain explore and just delight in simple things.

I know I've been posting pics of the kiddos like crazy but we've been cooped up. Writing hurts my brain. Photography is therapeutic.

There are more pictures of Brittain here. Some of my favorite to date. If you're bored.

And now for a totally unrelated tidbit. I know I've posted before how crazy Sunday mornings tend to be. But I do love Sundays. Here are a couple of reasons why. First, every time I get ready for church Mason says, "Mom, you're beautiful." or "You look like a princess" albeit a little incredulously, but still, so sweet! And lately Avery has taken it upon herself to make my breakfast. String cheese, an apple, or occasionally hard-to-swallow-toasted-on-the-floor-heater bread (I eat it anyway, even though I know where it's been.) She can be such a sweetheart. It really gets the Sabbath day off to a good start. Last Sunday Ryan didn't have early morning meetings so he was home and Avery made breakfast for both of us. Ryan told her it was Fast Sunday so he couldn't have any. A little later she asked why I wasn't eating my breakfast. I told her again it was Fast Sunday so I wasn't eating. She got wide eyed and asked, "How fast is it going to go?" Honey, not fast enough. Guess we need to explain that in a little more detail.

Priceless! I still hope the chocolate chips are for breakfast when I get there instead of the floor heater toast...but that is so sweet she fixes you breakfast.

so cute. I don't know how you do it every sunday. Larry was branch president many moons ago and I would have to get three ready and was pregnant with Ethan. So not fun. We lived 40 minutes away from the branch building too. Ugh! You do a fabulous job at not looking frazzled. And your children are always so cute and happy.

Keep the pics coming, we love them! I loved that age too, but find I love each following stage just as much! They are quite entertaining! How fun to have such great pics of them all the time!

These pictures are so cute. I love seeing your kids. Sundays are forever going to be a challenge. I too get the kids ready and out the door by myself. I'm impressed that your kids fix breakfast. That's awesome!
