love affair.

"i'm gonna be a golfer when i get big, mama!"

little beckham makes this proclamation pretty regularly much to the delight of my husband who is kinda sorta for
sure a golf fanatic. however, why shouldn't he be...he is amazing at the sport and has a passion for everything about
it!

i'm pretty sure i'm looking into beckham's future a little bit when i hear him ask to go golfing, hit balls, or try on
his golf shoes throughout the week.

i wonder if 3 year olds can have passions about things like this...well, things other than batman, pirate
ships and m&m's.

oh, how i love how he loves everything his daddy loves. he is so much like him. i can only imagine how that
makes jeff feel inside.



peyton enjoys whatever her daddy does as well. okay, i am a tad envious that the kids are all into what their
daddy's into. she, especially my big girl... i have tried, with complete failure, to get her into a sweet love
affair with her dolls, or ballet classes, or even real babies. nope, it is her daddy she wants to please
with her golf swing or bicycle balancing.

"let the dream die, heidi!" the hubby says with a sly smile. i just want to slap him...but i don't. he's right.

it's okay. peyton's her own girl and i'm proud of her. no more french fry and ice cream bribes at dance class.
i finally let her quit after i found it to hard to watch the other little tutu'd ballerina's dance and my little one
have zero interest.

realizing that i have a lot less control over her life than i used to. dang...i kinda liked being in full control:)

my little love. just wanting her to be happy doing what she enjoys is all i can and will ever want for her and
her baby brother. that's my story...

my passion isn't as healthy...


and baby brother playing big brother...
to baby nella and lainey!

xoxo

FINALLY! I've been trying all morning, and, finally, all the pictures to your new post loaded!!

I was surprised to read that Peyton wasn't into her dance class, probably b/c she looks so girly in all the pics you take of her :)

Glad to have you back!! Happy day to you ...

So fun to "meet" you. Your chilren are darling. And the one of your son with Lainey and Nella. {Perfection}.

And your sweet daddy's girl? She's beautiful. I am so wanting my Ivy to be a girly girl. Always dressing her in fluff and frills. I have a bad feeling that she's going to rebel and never want to wear dresses again by the time she's 5! :)

Beckcom really looks like a mini golfer. If he keeps it up he will have a golf scholarship before we know it.

Wait, LOVE LOVE the pix!!!!!! You're so talented, I honestly can't deal. I love the one of Beckham pointing to where he's going to loft the ball. Classic.
BTW, you need to seriously consider taking photos for a kickass cookbook. I'm 100% serious. Send 'em in, girl. Martha Stewart is waiting. You've got something special in them there foodie pix... (Also send them in to food magazines. I have the 2010 Writer's Market with all of the contact info you'd need...)

I love that first picture. ...and, of course the last one. If you squint your eyes on that first picture, you can see Beckham in about twenty years. Just littler.
xoxo I've seen you so much lately, I miss you when I don't!

Jeff, is an amazing golfer and I know this because whenever I get a chance to golf with him I am in awe of his raw talent...so much so that I just want to put the clubs away and hang out in the spa with you! Tucson in May my summer friend hope your ready to find ghosts in the desert! Of course I am going to make you bring your camera so that we can take pics together and I can get free lessons :-)
