it's an iPhone life + giveaway winner!

Sometimes iPhone gets jealous of all this Cam talk. 
But don't worry, dear iPhone, you'll always have a place on this blog...and in our hearts. 

First and foremost, this happened last week: 
We were at my parent's house when little sister, Lizzie, walked into the room.

We all looked at Chas. 
Then at Lizzie. 
Then back at Chas. 

They'll tell you it was a total coincidence. 
Don't believe them. 

Next is this pup. 
Archie hates when we dress him up. 
I call this look "depressed hipster at the coffee shop." 

Then there was that time in Nursery last Sunday. 
I'm trying to wipe the eyes of one crying girl while simultaneously reading a story to another little guy. 
A father of a child (who isn't even called to serve in Nursery) is in another corner trying to wrangle three other kids and distract them from the boy across the room screaming for his mom. (When one cries, they all start crying.) 

In the midst of all this chaos, I look for Chas. 
He's sitting happily on the floor, by himself, building this: 
...and taking pictures of it. 

Good thing I love him. 

And last, but not least, we have the sweetest face in the universe.
Baby Banks, circa 3 days old. 
I'm his favorite aunt. 

And the winner of the custom blog header giveaway is...
Samantha!


Oh hey. Cool name.

SarahAnn said...

I would have to say that, next to my own daughter, of course, little baby Banks is the cutest newborn I have ever seen.

LC said...

Matching outfits are hilarious. And adorable. Is sissy in your 'stripe' gang too? Also, that picture of Archie needs to be submitted to hipsterpuppies.tumbler.com w/ some sort of wonderful caption. Banks is a handsome little lump of baby!
