so focused! adorable
You are KILLING ME with your children’s cuteness. My sister in law is expecting a girl in a couple of months, and your posts just make the waiting worse. And your son is all eyes. And I love stripes.
Moving on now.
I had one of those as a kid! And, unfortunately, my parents’ idea of “easy kid cleanup” was not to wrap me in a giant smock, but to let me paint naked. I have the embarrassing photos to prove it…
That’s smart! I bet the photos are pretty darn adorable.
Love love love it! She looks hard at work and that lil smock is so cute on her.
She looks EXACTLY like you in these pictures! Gus, not so much. Strange, because I always thought he and Eleanor looked the same, but with different noses. Isn’t it weird how a different camera angle can change the way someone looks, or bring out their different features?
I always think Gus looks more like me than Eleanor does, but I see me and Brandon in both of them.
SO CUTE! Look at that focus!
Am I a bad mom? Because my first thought when I see these photos is, “How fun! We should do that,” but the second thought is, “But what about the mess? Is she not worried about the rug?”
Also, I commend you that August looks as well-dressed as Eleanor always does. As a mom of two young boys, I’ve found it hard to find nice-looking boys’ clothes. I admit to fawning over little pink coats and purple dresses and sparkly shoes at stores…why does it seem that girls get all the cute stuff?
Girls’ clothes are always better than the boys’. It takes a lot more digging to find the stuff that isn’t covered in sports, vehicles, and licensed characters!
They are sooo cute and dedicated :) Happy holidays!
I love her hair! They are both so sweet.
Where is August’s shirt from? It is adorable.
The Children’s Place.
That is very cute.
This is sweet!
That is so sweet.
A friend of mine just recently forwarded me a website where you can scan in your children’s art onto canvases. I imagine that you could do that at any site like that and your daughter’s little master piece reminded me of it.
What a good idea! I saved this one because I liked it. Kind of chic with the all black look, right?
so darling :)
I love the little setup you have… easel, apron, wipeable floor! Eleanor looks so focused on her craft. Is Eleanor a lefty? So’s my Chloe.
We think she’s a lefty, but she still switches and used the right hand sometimes too, so we’re not sure yet.
Very abstract! Love it!
Oh no! August just spilled all the black!
There is some serious cuteness happening with those two.
Uh huh, did you catch that? :) The paint is very thick, so luckily it didn’t really spill. He did get paint all over his hand though, which he then smeared immediately on his face!
I can totally see you in your daughter (: did she look like you when you were her age? :D
I think so. I should find some old pictures of me…
So cute! Her apron is adorable :)
Is it wrong that I kind of desperately want your daughter’s haircut? So cute!
Adorbs!Your kiddos are too cute!
These photographs are so sweet and here artwork is like Franz Kline, did she choose the black on her own? So modern!
Isn’t she on to something? I kept asking if she wanted to use another color (like her other paintings have had), but she insisted that this was to be just black.
(p.s. These photos were with the nifty fifty. Thanks again!)
I love to look of intense concentration in the first pic. She’s VERY serious about her art!
I feel like this is weird, but I am totally jealous of a toddler’s haircut right now!
What a lovely photo story these images make – such a wonderful moment beautifully captured :o)
I can tell from the photos that Eleanor is already a natural with a paintbrush. So funny, my sister-in-law is an interior designer and artist, and her daughter (3) is naturally drawn to art, too. She was obsessed with coloring and art from day one. It’s so exciting to me to see really young children become fascinated with art, especially if their parents are artists. As an artist and writer myself, and my husband, who is a musician, we’re looking forward to seeing our kids (that we will have someday, but NOT today) discover their interests. I wonder what they will inherit from us? :)
I love how intensely she seems to be concentrating. So cute!@
I see a bird in a nest in that second picture! wonderful!
It’s so important to keep feeding that creativity…
