Fall Leaves

The other day Jesse noticed that our crabapple tree's leaves were starting to fall, so he raked up a pile and took Naomi out to play. Stephen joined in the fun and then Jesse came back and got the camera- so he is the photographer here.

Naomi and the Vacuum

Naomi hates the vacuum when it's running. She wants to be held, and she will go to the tallest person around to get farther away from it.
But when it's sitting and unplugged- well, it's a perfect seat.

A big bowl of Naomi

Aw, how cute is that? She pulled out a big bowl from the cupboard and sat in it!

And then she didn't know how to get out of it!

The worst of the story?
She kept climbing in and sitting... and getting distressed because she couldn't get out. She fell out a few times, smacking her face on the floor. So I put the bowl away... and she cried.

Naomi Dancing

I was looking at my cousin's myspace page and her music came on- Naomi liked it and started dancing... and I actually grabbed the camera and caught it!

Luke and Naomi

I like this picture because they both have the same "zoned out" look. he he!
Luke and Naomi have a special bond... maybe it's the "cute glue" on her pinky. He doesn't like her to cry or "cry" (if you know what I mean!). He will carry her around where ever she wants to go or just stand and hold her.

Naomi watching for the boys

Jesse and Stephen went outside to play. Naomi sat in the window and watched them... then they went into the backyard. So she started calling for them. It's more like louder noises- "Jesse" is almost clear, but not always.

And then they came back and talked to her.

And they left again...

Then Jesse came back to talk with her.

Luke and the Camera

Luke was taking some pictures the other day and realized that the viewer turns completely around so he could take a picture of himself:

Ina May Gaskin

When I was 16 and realized I wanted to be a midwife, I read all the books I could get from the library. One of them was Spiritual Midwifery, by Ina May Gaskin. I never thought I would ever meet her. A couple weekends ago there was a midwifery conference here and I was able to go. Ina May was the main speaker. I will say that she has become more medical (in my opinion) over the years, which I think is too bad, but she still has a ton of knowledge and it was very cool to actually meet her. And now I have a signed copy of Spiritual Midwifery.

Holding a Zucchini

This year my garden didn't do so well- no idea why, but we just now have a zucchini growing. So I wanted some zucchini bread and we were out of town and drove by a farm stand- so I stopped and bought a couple huge zucchini for $.50 each. Naomi was really impressed and wanted to hold it all the way home.

Misc. Pictures

I have a bunch of miscellaneous pictures on my desk top, so I figured over the next few days I would just post them on the blog- randomly. :-)

Here's the first one:

Naomi sitting on the trunk by the window waiting for the boys to come home.

Naomi and Stephen

All the boys take piano lessons... and Naomi has them wrapped around her little finger. They sit down to play and she runs up and says "all done, all done." Meaning: "I'm "all done" being on the floor, I want to be up there with you." They, of course, pick her up and let her sit beside them. She plays and sings along with them while they practice and she doesn't put up with any slacking. If their hands aren't on the keys- she puts them there! Check it out:
