Little Ones:: Little Flock

These two love to be outside and winter is no obstacle. Fabienne will often walk into the living room with her snow pants on and exclaim, outside! Sometimes it takes me longer to suit up three little ones than the amount of time they actually last outside, but it always feels so good to get fresh air. And that last photo.. Abe often grabs Faba’s hand like that and it pretty much melts me.
Little Flock of Horrors recently sent along some clothing made from 100% merino wool. If you are not familiar with merino clothing, you need to be! It is super soft, easy to clean and dries quickly. It’s warm in the cold and cool in the heat. It’s breathable and anti kid smell! But seriously, it’s odor resistant. Little Flock uses New Zealand merino, which is totally renewable and sustainable. Their collection is full of fun colors and sweet designs, perfect for your little monsters!

On Fabienne: Rogue Merino Pullover | On Abram: Touf Pattern Tee

Thanks to my bearded mister for the lovely photos..

Fabienne was just 9 months old when I found out I was pregnant with Abe. Although I was a bit overwhelmed, I was excited that my babies would be so close in age. It has been such a joy watching them grow together. They are becoming little friends and keep each other entertained. Fabs doesn’t have many words yet, but she imitates her brother as much as she can. It’s almost like they have their own little language. Sometimes it’s exhausting having two toddlers but I sure am glad they have each other.

The crying photo with the cat photobombing is a good dose of reality. I always go into these shoots with such high hopes. But reality is, getting two toddlers to stay still enough for good photos is pretty much impossible. And an excellent exercise in patience. 😉

LITTLE ONES STYLE // WORLD DOWN SYNDROME DAY

World Down Syndrome Day is celebrated on 3/21 to symbolize a third copy of the 21st chromosome in those with Down Syndrome. On October 21, 2010 I was scared and didn’t know what life would be like with a little girl who had Down Syndrome. I have learned so much these past couple years and am happy to share with you a glimpse of what life looks like with a little girl who happens to have Down Syndrome…
