Over the last couple weeks, the letter Z has morphed into Edie's favorite thing. She loves to say Z. She loves to point at Z. She even knows when to say Z in the abc song and locate where it occurs in Dr. Seuss' ABC book ("I'm a Zizzer Zazzer Zuzz as you can plainly see.") So, I made Edie a Z shirt to celebrate her love for the letter Z.

Oh, Sundays... we at the TrygKerz house LOVE Sundays. Here are some pictures from our Sunday home together (also, Kris' birthday!).
Oh, and here is are a couple pictures from this morning. My wonderful friend Ashley sewed this adorable cloth diaper (as well as another one with a porcupine) as a first birthday gift for Edie. Ashley, by the way, is an amazing (AMAZING!) quilter based out of Bismarck, N.D. Check out her business Sew Addicted.
As many photographers (and other people who like to be behind the camera) know, getting pictures of you and your family is sometimes difficult. Though you have loads, and loads, and loads of pictures of your family, there really isn't that many of you in the pics. Thank goodness for good friends who take good pictures.
My friend/colleague/neighbor Morea so generously photographed Edie, Kris and myself a couple weeks ago. She swears this will happen at least annually, so, you may just see pictures of our whole family more often.
Thanks Mo. We LOVE the pics.
The picture below is my absolute fave!

Yesterday, we drove out to the Trygstad Compound to pick up little Miss Edie Pants after a weekend of fun with her grandma (now nicknamed "MeeMa") and grandpa. After hanging out for a bit, we went over to my aunt and uncle's cabin on Lake Lida and hung out with some extended family. Edie was able to play (and by play I mean steal toys) with her secondish cousin Brooklyn. What cute little ladies ;)
The rest of the day consisted of bead threading and walks in the garden.
This has been the highlight of my week:
Yep, that birdhouse gourd is hanging from a tree.... five feet from the ground. Uff da! The gourd spread it's vines at least 20 feet into the tree canopy... so, we'll see if there will be any other floating gourds before the season ends.
Just this morning, Edie sat and ate the table for the first time. What a big girl!

We spent another Labor Day weekend at the lake with our close friends and celebrated UsFest III. Of course, I couldn't resist photographing all the kids. But who could blame me? We adults stay pretty much the same year after year. But those kids.... those kids just get better and more awesome every year. And with one for sure on the way (Damon & Joslyn) and another one a maybe (Evan & Heidi adopting), UsFest can only grow bigger and better.
I love our friends.
All of us :)
