Dakota: Three Years Old!

Okay, I love these kid interview things, so I wanted to give Dakota one… Here are her responses, no prompting/suggesting answers on my part. But a few answers warranted a follow-up question, and I’ve clarified a few of the answers for posterity as well. 🙂

What is your favorite movie? Finding Nemo [disclosure: I listed out the movies she’s seen because she doesn’t know the difference between a movie and a TV show]
What is your favorite song? Twinkle Twinkle
What is your favorite food? Broccoli [disclosure: we smother her broccoli in butter, which probably helps. :)]

Mal: One Month Old

Mal is a month old, hurray!

mal 1 month

He’s not quite as big as Dakota was at one month, but he’s certainly trying to look it with that double chin. 🙂

I’m still taking pictures in the living room, but I laid the (awesome handmade gift) blanket in the middle of the floor instead of on the couch, in the hopes of somewhat more even light. And while the legwarmers were fun for Dakota, I figure there’s enough going on with this new blanket so I’ll keep the clothing super simple this time.

I do have a stuffed animal for his pictures, but I completely forgot about it until I went back and looked at Dakota’s one month photo. Curses! But I’m not going for perfection here, and I’m happy with the shot I got, so I’m not going to drive myself crazy trying over and over. I’ll just have to remember for next month. 🙂
