LAUNDRY DAY

Today, was laundry day in our household. And when I say day, I mean it. And not because we have a lot of clothes, because that isn’t it either, my husband only has 50 pieces in his wardrobe (shirts/tees/pants/shoes/jackets/suits)…maybe even less now, as we like to sort through our wardrobe often, to sift out the unnecessary. (My side of the closest has more, about 75 was the last count I think we did…) But it is because we have a hand crank laundry machine. When we got pregnant, one thing I became a bit obsessed with is figuring out how to cut our laundry. I mean, we do not have laundry in our apartment, it was costing us about $3-4 each load, and took way too much time & I refused to do it as we needed to go to our apartment’s basement. So we bought an option we could do in the comfort of our own home for like $80!

Any who, today, was laundry day. So Oliver stayed in his jammies/play suit and I did the laundry, although, at one point, Oliver “helped”. 🙂 Now, a side note, I still did not finish the laundry….only could do about half, as our drying system is to hang the clothes on a shower rod in the shower, therefore limiting our amount that can dry at one time. And I needed to pause throughout the day to capture some of these too cute moments and his “I’m dying I love these soo much” jammies. I’m consciously “look[ing] for the moments without distractions”.

COUPLE: EAGER(s-to-be) ENGAGED

Kyle is not a fan of getting his photos taken, but Chelsey and I had a plan. We started off Chelsey & Kyle’s engagement session in their apartment and then moved outdoors. I am so happy Kyle was along for this ride because I love their love and I loved capturing it. Chelsey and Kyle are some of my favorite people on this planet and they truly compliment each other so well. So, thank you K+C. I can’t wait for your wedding!!

To capture the love of grandma and grand-baby is really special to me. Having a 7 month old myself, it was an absolute pleasure to get to spend some time watching the love and play unfold between these two. Linda is a natural grandma, enticing and loving-on Ava throughout, it was so beautiful to see.

BABY: DECEMBER O

My little suga’ is getting older. And it just amazes me, his little personality. He’s calm in nature, has his wild impulses, contagiously curious, unpredictably stubborn, and constantly stunning. David and I were just talking about moments when it catches our eye of our habits/looks that Oliver replicates or naturally produces. It’s so weird to see. Like the other day, I saw my twin in Oliver’s facial expression and I see David often in Oliver’s stare, but you can also see in these photos, Oliver’s smirk, it’s quite his own. What a wonder, a baby is!

FAMILY: PARK CUDDLES

Living in an apartment, smack dab in the city of Hollywood, we have to make an effort to go outside, to find green. We explored before having Oliver (**read found one place we liked & repeatedly went there**), but after having Oliver, it feels like a completely different experience here in the city.

For all the negatives, of not having our own yard or garage or nice property manager, we have at our fingertips so many positives: activities, people, parks, resources, hikes, play groups, that I am now willing to explore, for Oliver. It’s strange, I want to have Oliver see when he is older that his parents and him really Vivan Los Angeles.

So today, I woke up and said, let’s go outside, and so we did. We went to a park we had driven past many times, but never stopped before. And it was lovely. I brought Oliver’s bear suit as it was perfect LA Winter weather for it and we had a ball rolling around in the Beverly Hills dirt. I think every baby needs a bear suit, just saying.
