Bronx Kiddos

Today we took a little trip up to the Bronx to look things over again and snap a few pictures for our video presentation.  I took a couple pics of the kids at the park.  The progression just cracked me up – this is what it takes to get four kids to all look at you at the same time!

I was a little nervous to start with – I was putting my two babies on a park bench, over a concrete sidewalk, to sit with their siblings who are only 2 and 4.  And I was the only adult available to catch them in case of catastrophe – Ben was getting the van.  And I was behind the camera, trying to take a picture.  But we survived without the feared catastrophe!

“Nolan, stop playing with the paci!”

“Elaine, I’ll make Libs smile.  You look at Mommy!”

Bronx Buddies
“Nolan!  Let go of the paci!”

{I reposition both babies, who looked quite uncomfortable}

Bronx Buddies
{I wait for the dog to walk by – only Nehemiah thought I was interesting enough to watch!}

Bronx Buddies
“Nolan, you’re choking Nehemiah!”

Bronx Buddies
{okay, good enough!  Liberty doesn’t smile on command anyway}

Elaine picked her shirt out at the store because “Liverty has one with this kind of doggy too, and then I can match her.”  How could I say no?

And maybe this will be our neighborhood park, sometime in the not-so-distant future!

  1. Way, way too cute. Love the running commentary and the attempts at getting the great pictures you finally got! We used to shoot a whole roll of film for ONE halfway human-looking family picture. And, we only had two children! Proud of you! :o)
