February Family

The second installment of photos from visiting our families in Houston a few weeks ago!


My niece Daphne playing with a roly-poly.


Alena playing with my old dollhouse.


Daphne could kill someone with this look!


I hope you remember my beautiful nephew Lennon. This is his perfect little family!


The whole group!


I brought in the crocheting project I’ve been working on, but as soon as the girls saw, they insisted I teach them. They gave up pretty easily, though, and instead enlisted me in making them these cute headbands (Alena had a necklace instead–I didn’t get a picture). Avery was posing (“like I’m graduating!”) with the Nancy Drew books I gave her for Christmas.


I’m not really sure if Joseph is up to this whole uncle business. I mean, come on. Stealing bottles from the baby? Not cool.


The next day we met Joseph’s family in The Woodlands for lunch.


After we ate, we spend a couple hours wandering Hubbell & Hudson, where Joseph and I bought some of our favorites from Italy–the tea we drank a lot but haven’t been able to find back here, Hits cookies, and speck (proscuitto).

Lennonberry

You might remember my nephew Lennon from a post last year. Well, it turns out he is some sort of mutant baby who ages at double-speed. He just passed his first birthday but looks at least two years old, doesn’t he? But he is still just about the most beautiful creature I have ever seen, so I’ll pardon his making me extremely confused.

His parents let me borrow him for some photos, which really were not difficult to get. Besides being gorgeous, he is extremely well-tempered! The best baby ever, truly.


Alena asked for a picture with her baby brother too!

Prompted 365: Days 241-273

I fell way behind on my 365 project, but I did manage it finish right on time–December 31! Unfortunately, In the Wabe hasn’t been caught up. I don’t want to leave the project half-finished here, but I also don’t want to bore you with every picture, so from now on I’ll post my favorites from each month only. You will only have to deal with three more of these posts! Thanks everyone for sticking with me over this long year.


29 August: Mirror


30 August: Close
It actually was not a close game at all. Every time I have seen the Rangers they have been truly awful.


31 August: Art
My friend Asma is a beautiful work of art~ :)


2 September: Library


4 September: Note
Found this in my wallet!


8 September: Falling
I completely fall into every new project I take on, especially when it comes to embroidery.


9 September: Favorite
There is no denying it. Leonardo will always chose me over anyone else.


13 September: Reality
There’s no repairing my skin’s years of sun damage. I’ve thankfully now learned the importance of SPF 85.


15 September: Dull


17 September: “An unexamined life is not worth living.”


19 September: Missing


26 September: Circle


30 September: Sensitive
Leonardo is pretty calm, as long as you don’t even think about touching his tail.

Life with Instagram




I fell into the Instagram trap immediately after getting an iPhone a few months ago. For those who don’t know, Instagram is an iPhone-only photo community.  It’s fun and simple and mainly consists of photos of cats.

A Few Months on Film

Here are some of my favorites from my second and third rolls of film. You can see the first roll here! I am having a good time playing with my dad’s old SLR but wish I had more things to photograph. My third roll took six months from the first shot to the last, which is pretty awful. I’m hoping to shoot much more this year! Though I will definitely need to find somewhere to develop–spending $15/roll at Walgreens is just not going to cut it. Please send me any recommendations you have!

Photos featuring myself, Joseph, a few family members (niece, sister, & my sister-in-law and her boyfriend), and my lovely friend Asma.
