***The Lisa Leonard Designs giveaway ends at 10pm tonight. So if you didn’t leave a comment yesterday, scroll down to the next post and add your comment today.

Remember this post on planting a wheatgrass lego jungle…well a week later the jungle is in full force.

Here it is on the day of planting:

And here it is 5 days later….after lots of adventures and plane crashes


After the picture above I let the boys cut down part of the jungle…it keeps growing.

This would be fun to plant in little pots that look like heads – you could give them lots of haircuts.

And one more just because.

Wasn’t it just last week I said facial wounds were common around here? Actually it was in the same post as the original lego jungle post – just a different brother.

Big Brother and another little boy had a bit of an accidental run in on concrete while coloring with sidewalk chalk.

Just fyi – he was playing great with Biggest brother until I got close with the camera and then he did the sad, pouty face.

  • Jeannette Swan - I love the jungle – your kids have all the fun!! You have to get used to scratches and bumps with the boys…last week Jordan gashed the side of his head open trying to do some trick in the craft room. Thank God for His protection over them!

  • Carissa - Defniitely going to have to copy the wheatgrass jungle idea. Easton is obsessed with Legos and he would love this!

  • Lori Danelle - I love how little kids hurt themselves and are fine until you ask them if they’re OK, and then they fall apart and the tears won’t stop. Well, that’s how it is at my house anyway. :)

  • Trinity - Isn’t it funny how a wound doesn’t hurt until someone is giving out extra attention?

  • Brooke - This is too neat, I may have to try to wheatgrass jungle too! My little guy may like it!

  • lesley - Poor Hud, that pic made me think of the one of Corbett when he was little with the bear. So sad, but love the wheatgrass jungle.

  • amanda torres - He sure knows how to work the camera…male model???

  • Ben Mann - The pout is killer.

  • sheridan - I had no idea that wheatgrass grew that fast! I’ve got to get my boys some of that…they will LOVE it! I was so good to see you and that sweet baby yesterday! I’m loving the pictures and I’ve already placed an order to get others off the DVD. Thank you again!

  • Jenny Collier - These photos are too cute! You seem to be such a fun mother, Ashley.

  • Momofthe4 - I just love all your snapshots they always look perfect! Your children are so lucky to have Mom recording their memories so beautifully!

  • christina larsen - My son came in while I was looking at the pics and he said, “cool”. I think I might need to do some grass.

  • Croq Zine – The Blog » Blog Archive » Sprouting Wheatgrass - [...] Indiana Jones and the Wheatgrass of Doom at Ashley Ann Photography [...]

  • amanda torres - the world would be a sad place without family.

  • Melissa - I asked my four year old what she thought and her answer was “the world would be a sad place without love” – I totally agree.

  • Tess - the world would be a sad place without coffee.
    i don’t know about you but a cup of coffee makes me a very happy mommy. and a happy mommy makes for happy children…. just sayin.

  • Heather King - the world would be a sad place without Friends… both the people in our lives and all ten seasons of the NBC comedy… gotta love ‘em :)

  • Valerie - The world would be a sad place without chocolate. (Not a very serious answer, but true!)

  • Heather - That is a loaded question, but at the moment I feel like my answer would be: “flowers.” Winter is an awful season for me, b/c it is always so dreary, cold, wet, just icky. So, when spring and summer roll around, all the green and colorful flowers that come out really lighten my mood. Can you imagine if we never had that? YUCK!

  • AshleyAnn - CONTEST NOW CLOSED……..

  • Cath - I can’t believe I missed this giveaway :) In the other day I was just admiring Lisa’s shop!

I’ve been getting a lot of the question, “So what is it like with a daughter now?”

Honestly, right now it is pretty much the same. She looks like her brothers and acts like a newborn…I still call her “he” and “him” at times. However, we have noticed some differences. She always sleeps with a hand on her face or chin – which just seems delicate and girly. So far though one of the biggest difference is that I can take pictures of her with flowers and fun vintage tablecloths – I wouldn’t have tried that with the boys. When I did Biggest Brother’s 5 year pictures he pointed out how cute the flower garden was and that it would make for “cute newborn baby sister” pictures. So here you go bud…(more with her eyes open later).

Well the post is titled “my life” and sitting around taking pictures of my new daughter among flowers isn’t really reflective of the true nature of my life.

So here you go – a better look at my life right now

I encourage creative dress: Super Underwear Man & Super Underwear Man Too

I encourage independence: Littlest Brother highjacked the 4 wheeler from his Big and Bigger Brothers

I encourage joint conflict resolution: Biting the beanbag to win the argument makes sense right?

I encourage sibling affection: His kisses = her hair gel

I encourage modesty: He saw the monkeys at the Zoo and decided to imitate


I encourage teamwork: The Brothers joined forces and chased me into the house…

which I left to go out the other door and defeat them with a waterhose. No mercy.

I encourage self expression: it often backfires

And now I am learning what life is like as a family of 6


And life is pretty amazing…messy, chaotic, beautiful, and lacking any moments of boredom

BIG BLOG NEWS:

Tomorrow is a big day for something new…a first for my blog. So check back Tuesday morning for a little fun excitement

….hmmmmmm, what could it be?

Your family is adorable and the newest addition oh so sweet! Enjoy this time I wish all mine were so little again!

  • Emily Beaty - I LOVE this post! Thanks for sharing… you have an awesome family. :)

  • Melissa - So, I’m a little behind on reading your blog, and I just came across this. I absolutely love this post. So CUTE, and such a great idea. My favorite is the one with the arrows, about your life with all 6.
