    That is the cutest thing I’ve seen in quite some time! Are those your glasses or hers? Also, I LOVE her dress :)

      I like everything we’ve gotten from them! I buy more for the kids than I do for me, but I’ve liked the women’s line too.

        The mini Boden clothing is so, so nice. Mikey’s favorite pants are from there.

    Mathias does the same thing (aka work like mommy) but does it with Skype :D My friends and sometime clients get 3-year-old chats… which they find hilarious, thank goodness!

    I asked him yesterday if he wants to do mommy (web/graphic designer) or daddy’s (sys. admin) job. He told me he wanted to do my job, aka make pictures on the computer and print them. Good boy! :)

    I like the large print botanical fabric hanging over your office chair in this pic – what is it? Thx ~

      It’s a tablecloth by Rifle Paper Co. from BHLDN. I was looking at it and picking paint colors, and I just happened to leave it folded over the chair. (It doesn’t really belong there.)

    I love Boden clothing! I always get compliments on them and I love that I’m not going to see my clothes on a million other people. I can’t wait until I have a little one to dress in the mini line. I’ll probably be broke before their first birthday!

    Thanks for the inspiration! I wear glasses and my daughter likes to get them sometimes and “be like mommy”. She’s been typing e-mails to Santa. Think I’ll get cute frames and add them to her Christmas gift which is going to be a different dress up outfits :)
