Hot dogs, peas, and (mostly) giggles...

What kind of face would you make if your mom fed you hot dogs bits and peas? Naomi demonstrates a few options.

Out for a Sunday spring walk

Out for a walk in the beautiful spring weather!


This is a trick Matt taught Naomi. He says, "Who's SOOOOOOO big?" and she raises her hands high above her head to show that she's a big girl! The second picture is a variation on this; she apparently decided the peas on her dinner tray should be put to use and she rubbed them thoroughly into her hair.

Easter at the Merrell's place

Here is Naomi in her Easter outfit. Getting her to smile and look at the camera took some serious silly work. We didn't do Easter baskets or anything...figured it would all go right over her head and she would spend her time munching on the grass from the baskets anyway.


Here Naomi is playing with Lulu, her giant stuffed lamb. She runs toward Lulu giggling, climbs all over Lulu, lays down on Lulu when she's tired...we absolutely love this stuffed animal!

Stacking things

Naomi's brilliance shows through in her ability to stack items, such as her shoes on top of mine. She's terrific at knocking things down, but it's only been in the last few weeks that I've convinced her to stack things herself. Stacking our shoes was completely her own idea.

My stylin' husband...I actually titled this photo "Awful facial hair". (Disclaimer: this picture was taken quite some time ago)
