We recently had the pleasure of exploring the beautiful Chestnut Hill neighborhood of Philadelphia, and discovered this gem of a boutique! Oxford Circus Toys carries all of my favorite handcrafted and european toys…Vilac, Haba, Moulin Roty, Plan Toys…and on and on. It’s a cozy and well curated space jam packed with handmade goodness-I highly recommend a visit! Check out my vine for a quick tour!
The nine month mark arrived on saturday…yes, I said nine. Wha happen?! (That one is for all the christopher guest fans out there.) Our latest shoot at Little Nest resulted in these keepers…I mean wow. These kids really know how to work it for the camera. They’ve grown used to it with mommy’s lens in their face from day one! At nine months, they are both very mobile and things are getting crazier…Marie is walking (with a walker), and Henry just began crawling, gaining speed every day. They make each other laugh often, and the babbles and sounds are becoming more coherent. Last night in fact, Marie crawled into my lap, looked up at me, and said “mama”. MELT. For the record, I now know the earlier one from Henry was a fluke (even though he looked at me and made the sound with purpose, he has not done it since)…so I await the day he says it again. Every day is a pure, joy-filled adventure!

Marie + Henry’s nursery is featured today on Hellobee, which happens to be a favorite site of mine for parenting and little ones inspiration. If you are linking over from there…welcome! I would love to get to know you and your littles…you can also find me HERE.

I’m so flattered to have our family featured over on Reverie Bébé! I’ll admit, revisiting my pregnancy journey and the precious newborn photos of Marie + Henry brings back such beautiful emotions, and moves me to tears. My sweet babies…has it really been eight months?! It is unbelievable how much and how fast they have grown!

Henry and Marie are ready for spring, despite mommy’s wish for more winter! It was the first time in their Oh Joy for Winter Water Factory outfits (ironic considering the brand name), gifted to us by the lovely Courtney Apple. It made my day to see that Joy added this photo to her facebook album!
You are my wild is a weekly portrait project, with 14 different photographers sharing how they see their children. It’s making the blog rounds, but I just had to share…love the concept. Check out the site to learn more and be inspired!
Friday, I don’t think I’ve ever been happier to see you. This photo pretty much sums up the craziness, chaos (and cuteness) that was my week. With mr. fleurishing away on business, it was a true challenge. Babies crave routine (as does mommy these days), and especially with twins it is essential to stick to one. Between him being gone and our basement being renovated, this week’s routine went out the window. Which means I am completely spent. Done. Cooked. Exhausted. However…I realized that no matter how tired I am, every moment I am with them is a gift-I’ve never felt this happy.
*wishing you all a relaxing weekend*
A big THANK YOU to Curbed Philly for this lovely article about my services!
Marie + Henry are seven months old today! So this video should thoroughly confuse you as it was taken halfway into their six month with the knowledge that editing time would mean sharing it around Valentine’s Day! My apologies for the tardiness but I think this bit of digital baby love should make up for it. Wishing you all beautiful and life changing love…all year long. If you already have it, treasure it.
p.s… can someone please tell father time to develop amnesia?! ah!
