Red is the Color of Love

On Valentine’s Day, I got to watch the boys after we all met for a LOVEly lunch. Since Jayden had recently turned 10 months, I took advantage of a photo op since he is officially a walker now. He took his first steps at 9 months and at this session, he was confident standing alone […]

Seriously- how is it that Jayden is already 10 months (OK, almost 11)?!? SLOW DOWN! His walk is so adorable- and I love that he smiles the entire time that he does it.

MJ? Seriously, M and D- you are gonna have girls SWOONING.

Pretty in Pink

Simone is 10 months old today (the 28th) so I’ll be taking new pictures soon, but just had to share these little cuties of a few weeks ago. Megan and Robby were having a date night, and brought the girls dressed matchy-matchy in some shirts I’d bought them … just in case I wanted to […]

OH! Those eyes, those lips, that hair in the third picture is too much for me to handle!!! It shouts “FRAME ME!” Love the second picture as it completely captures Syd with Simone- snuggling up behind her and grabbing her for a big sister bear hug.

Ten months. Boy do I have a treat for you.

[…] the last post of Simone called “Pretty in Pink” Megan wrote a comment ending with “Ten months. Boy do I have a treat for you.” […]

Meet Orlando … Oh So Sweet – But He Wouldn’t Sleep!

Little sweet Orlando Easton (or “Lando” as they call him) was so precious but apparently his momma forgot to tell him he was supposed to sleep during his newborn session. I guess he didn’t want to miss a thing, and as long as he was swaddled, he was quite content. He was just five days […]

Oh my goodness Mary! These are beautiful! Thank you so much for your patience that day! These pictures represent very beautiful memories and we will cherish them always!

Oh my hell, what a cutie! Kill me with the tie picture and the dragon slayer. I think I want one! 😉

He is so handsome! ( I thought all my boys would look that way because of Matt’s coloring. ) I love the way the dark hair frames his tiny face.

Baby A [Newborn] » - July 29, 2013 - 7:36 PM

[…] say everyone has a look-alike in the world and I think we found Baby A’s … Orlando. Not only do they look alike but Baby A slept even less than Lando! All his mom and I could do was […]


Lily is the granddaughter of my good friend Gloria, a Jr/Sr high school friend that I reconnected with five years ago. We have a great time when we get the chance to get together, which is often with another good friend of ours from high school — and another Mary — who cuts my hair. […]

OMIGOSH! I havent seen all of those!!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for showing the world how beautiful my baby can be! (when she’s not grouchy from teething…) ^_^

Happy Valentine’s Day

Just a little treat that is oh so sweet! MJ is my oldest g-babe, born three years ago in October. He’s a smart little guy, using a rapid succession of words all through the day. 🙂 He loves to help me in the kitchen, loves playing police cars, fire trucks, and little people in “his” […]

Oh man have I missed your blog- and what a sweet treat to check tonight and find these adorable lovey faces looking back at me! I love the individuality and thought you gave each kids’ commentary and I hope MJ is sporting fire hearts in his room!

BTW- we have 8 teeth and guess what I found in there when I was looking today? A MOLAR thinking about poking through. WHAT? Poor thing- sick and a molar! Tough little cookie, right?

Happy Valentines Day to you- so glad we’ll be getting to see you!

Seriously, those Gerichs Girls are the toughest I’ve ever seen!

Tracey - February 14, 2013 - 8:18 AM

Mary I have tears in my eyes from looking at these darling
children! All of them are so cute. I would love to just
give them each a big bear hug. You and the other grandmas
and grandpas have such blessings. I’m glad they did such
a great job at letting you take their pictures. Kodoos to
the parents. Doing a great job all of you! Happy Valentines
Day to you all!

Fairly Candid - February 14, 2013 - 9:06 AM

Tracy, thank you for sharing that bit of love today! You are special! Mary

Dawn Wickham - February 14, 2013 - 3:01 PM

Oh Mary! Gloria gave me a copy of this picture last night and I’m completely enamored! She said that Lily was a little monster, so I’m shocked you got a smile out of her. (You should have seen her at her family birthday shin-dig. HORRIBLE ^_^ )
Thanks again, you definitely create magic!

Danielle - February 14, 2013 - 8:41 PM

Loved this post, love these kids, and LOVE your pictures! Thanks for a great Valentines Day!! Love you guys.

Hi Dawn,I thought Lily was just the most beautiful precious little thing. No monsters were at my house! 🙂 Mary

Fairly Candid - February 15, 2013 - 7:39 AM

It truly was such a special Valentine’s Day. Thank you for all you did as well to make it so. Love you right back.

Thank you for taking the time again to snap some perfect photos of all 4 beautiful kids. Agree what Megan said about the individual comments about each kid.

Fairly Candid - February 17, 2013 - 5:06 PM

Thank you son. They sure do make me proud … along with all four of you big kids who are raising them up so beautifully. Every one of you are sure are a joy in our lives! Love, Mom
