how cussin' cute is this kid?

Mike and I are taking a Fantastic Mr. Fox approach to cutting swear words out of our vocabulary.

In any case, this kid? So. Cussin'. Cute.

It is probably unfair the amount of fun we are having with her these days. She is so sweet, so funny, so personable. This picture is of her cracking up as Mike plays peekaboo from around the dining room door. I can't look at it and not smile.


  1. Hilary, I read your post about the birth of Natalie and was so touched by your willingness to share such a private, difficult time with other mothers. I can't help but think you have helped someone you probably don't even know by opening up about the most personal experience a mother could have and being able to show others that you can feel the intense grief that goes along with having a plan change so quickly and drastically and come out healthy and happy on the other side. You are an inspiration to me and to everyone who reads your wonderful blog I'm sure. Thank you for sharing your life with us all and Natalie is a lucky, lucky girl to have you and Mike as parents. Love, Sal
