Quick share of this sweet photo of my daughter. I actually took this a couple of weeks ago, right when she turned 18 months old. We have been spending a lot of quality time with her lately (doing many “enriched” activities like the museum, the zoo, the arboretum, parks, swimming lessons, and on and on). This is partly because she’s developing so much these days, and also because we are anticipating the impending arrival of our son in a few weeks’ time. It’s such a crazy thought that she won’t be our only baby anymore!
Along with hundreds of other Houstonians during beautiful weather, I was at Hermann Park on Sunday afternoon with the Tanner Family. I met Michelle along with her husband and beautiful kids for some photos, and I have to say, I’m so impressed with their parenting skills! They are my heroes — twin baby boys under 6 months old, an active (but so sweet) toddler, and a Big Kid, all under the same roof! And the whole bunch did great for family pictures. I really enjoyed meeting this family and am glad they were willing to brave the park crowds!
I spent this morning with one of my favorite couples, Laura and Dave. Laura is an old friend and colleague of mine, and Dave is the most interesting man in Houston (not really, but sort of). We walked together along Buffalo Bayou through Sesquicentiennial Park in downtown Houston for some photos. The weather was beautiful for us, and though the morning started out a bit cold, it turned out to be a fantastic, clear, sunny day that never quite got hot. March weather is one of my favorite things about living in Houston, and if I’m ever looking for more reasons to love Houston, this couple is who I go to — they are what I would call “in the know” and they can always share different tidbits about anything from the Heights history to favorite coffee shops. Here are some pictures from today:
