It's NOVEMBER for crying out loud!

It's NOVEMBER, and Kumeu just went for a dip in the river. Usually we're sinking in several feet of snow by now (that may or may be a SLIGHT exaggeration). We've been having an uncharacteristically beautiful fall... and I like it.

Pitfalls of this November, however, include MOVEMBER. Yes, Lowell is attempting the mustache growth once again (gross)...

Kumeu Trick Reel - age: 6 months

Kumeu is now 7 months old, but let's take a little trip back to his 6 month birthday.

He had a half birthday party and a monkey cake (because he's such a little monkey). He didn't eat any of his cake (as it was chocolate- oopsies), but he was eye-ing it alright...


We made a new trick reel in honour of his half birthday. Here he is, ladies and gentlemen: Kumeu Einstein T.

You also need to re-check his 12-week trick reel. HE'S SO TINY AND CUTE! We shed a few tears as we reminisced...

More trick reels to come as he gets older!

I don't know what it was about turning 28, but Carlynne and I completely independently decided to hack our hair.

Twinnies BEFORE:

Aaaaaaand AFTER:

Switchin up the style and angle...

Carlynne has gone funky short like this before. I, however, have not had hair this short since the pre-pubescent-crop days of elementary, and it's taking some getting used to. In the 3 weeks that it's been shorty short, I've ventured out into public with it down TWICE. I'm the queen of bobby pin trickery (i.e., going hog wild with bobby pins to disguise short hair). It's weird. Very weird... but also kinda fun.
