Julia Styles

18 February 2014


sweater - no tag via ThredUp
overalls - OshKosh via ThredUp
moccasins - c/o Minnetonka

Watching Simon unwrap his (super belated birthday gift) guitar:
Julia: oh wow! a piano!!!

As she dug for nostril gold before preschool one morning ...
Grace: okay ... let's try to keep the nose picking to a minimum
Julia: okay ... but I'm just getting it out of my system

During "nap time" from her locked (from the outside) quarters ...
Julia: (yells) MOM!!!
Grace:
Julia: (yells louder) MOM!!!!!!!!!
Grace:
Julia: (and louder) MOMMMMYYYY!!!!!
Grace:
Julia: (softly) sweetheart? are you out there?

In the middle of eating lunch:
Julia: do you think we could have some weed?
Grace: wait, what?
Julia: you know ... some weed?
Grace: no ... I don't think so ... I have no idea what you're talking about
Julia: you know some WEED ... like yesterday?
Grace: oh, Wheat Thins??
Julia: yeah! some weed

Watching me struggle to put on my freshly laundered (and dried to a fraction of their former size, apparently) jeans ...
Julia: hmmm
Grace: what?
Julia: well, maybe those are baby Theo's??

And on an entirely different occasion ... watching me get dressed in my usual tunic and leggings and boots ...
Grace: does this look okay?
Julia: well, don't you need pants?!

Last night as she waltzed into the bathroom and Theo sprint-crawl-followed ...
Grace: Theo, let's give Julia her privacy
Julia: oh, no that's fine, that's fine - sometimes I like an audience

And BONUS ....

A little guest appearance from our resident parrot ...


Until he started in on the mock-twirling and Julia said, "okay, that's enough of that."

  5. The jeans one reminds me of something my 3.5 year old daughter said shortly after I gave birth to her second baby brother. She found some of my underwear (the granny style brief kind, good for c-section scars) and said sweetly, "Oh! Mom! You got me a new sheet!"

  6. OK the weed convo made me laugh SO HARD!!! Oh my gosh I can't take it. I would never be able to keep a straight face around her. If you don't just laugh all the time you should ditch the whole stay at home mom thing and put that poker face to good use...like professionally!

  7. Always the greatest. My mood has been less than inviting today and I needed a laugh. Thanks, J. (The "sweetheart?" was my favorite.)

  9. Oh this is so funny! Julia is hysterically funny. And do you use a dslr or your phone to capture these shots? The photography on your blog has improved so much, and is one of the things that keeps me coming back for every post. :-) (just one)

  12. I mean... do you laugh at these things, too??? Or is it frustrating for you? Or a combo of both? And, how many days worth does it take for these gems to make a blog appearance?

    I cannot wait until I have kids one day JUST for the things they say. Ok, not JUST for that, but I think you get me.

    (Also, the skipping pic...ADORABLE! Epitome of kid happiness!)

  32. Presh. And my god, I think I have some of Baby Theo's jeans at my house too.....I will use that to explain why I wear jeans like six times before turning them inevitably into sausage casings once again. WHY.
