Soft & Sweet – I Heart Faces

Sweet and Soft - My Sweet Izaiah

It kills you to see them grow up.  But I guess it would kill you quicker if they didn’t.  ~Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams

My sweet Izaiah. My husband told a lady at the restaurant yesterday he was 14 months. Why do men not see what’s wrong with aging them even a month?! He is growing up too quickly, I guess that’s an advantage to growing another baby in my belly. But this growing baby will too grow up.

He was 12 months in this photo. We live in Texas and every year make our children go out to the middle of a field that is sprouting our state flower the bluebonnet. We ignore the cactus (YES! this field had cacti), ant mounds and bees and enjoy a day of making them laugh, bribing them with candy and capturing moments that we will forever remember.

This week over at  I Heart Faces is Sweet & Soft week, check out the other entries at




  1. Such a great entry. It’s nice to see a boy in the mix of photos. I think so many thought babies and girls for the challenge, but boys can pull off soft & sweet just as well.

  2. BTW, I saw that you have tons of posts for the iPod and iPad. I am a huge fan of Apple. 🙂 I just bought the new iPad and love that it can be projected in my classroom. It has totally expanded my ability to use it at school.
