  1. I love watching inchworms. Did you make Lily’s hat? Both it and she are gorgeous! Emma’s explanation of makeup is hilarious, and Johnny is so articulate now!

    1. This inchworm was a lot of fun! My aunt made Lily’s headband (looks like a hat in that photo). I want to learn how to make one like it!

      Johnny’s speech has improved by leaps and bounds this fall – so wonderful to see!

  2. That is one of the cutest pictures ever of Lily! In the top picture we are looking at a little inchworm (caterpillar of the geometer moth) that I found on our leaf blower bag. The kids thought it was really funny how it inches along.
