The tagline for the PHFR series at Like Mother, Like Daughter is “capturing the context of contentment.” Now, I’ve been a lot of things lately–frustrated, exhausted, scatterbrained, overwhelmed, to name a few–but content is not one of them. Jem, however, is the poster baby for contentment, so as a reward he gets to be the subject for this special edition photo update.
My sister Leslie took some pictures of the kids for Father’s Day. We took these pictures at Bee Creek Park in College Station, which is extra fun because when I was in college my roommate and I used to come to this very park and decompress by sitting on the swings and talking about baby names. And now here are my babies sitting in that very same spot.
I could use any picture in this category; Jem is pretty happy whether we’re hanging out at home or on the go!
The last two pictures are from our mini-vacation to Wisconsin. We had a fun time at Lake Michigan and later enjoyed live music at an Irish pub!
I’m loving watching sibling love growing between Jem and Abby. I took Jem on a road trip to Milwaukee last weekend and a couple of times when he was fussing in the car, the only way to perk him up was to get out my phone and show him a video of Abby singing “Mary Had a Little Lamb.” Instant smiles!
Here’s some outtakes from the photo shoot:
Also, does anything say, “younger sibling” better than this? I didn’t think so.
