A quick programming note before posting one last “Dear Murphy” post here: We are moving to blogging only on our site at http://www.nickelcitystudios.com . Eventually, we’ll have a blog-only site at nickelcitystudios.com that will display all of our photographic work as we shoot it…to include more personal stuff like the photos of the boy and other side projects aside from just our wedding/portrait business.

So never fear – more ridiculous videos and photos will continue to be posted – WordPress has been good to us, but it’s time to move on. All the current Dear Murphy posts will remain here until the internet breaks or WordPress goes out of business or Murphy sues us for defamation of character and emancipation – you know, whatever…..

Dear Murphy,

You, my tiny offspring, are quickly approaching two years of age. This means more independance and also a lot more belligerence towards us. We’re always looking for new outlets for your energy, because we’ve generally found you’re a lot better baby when you’re exhausted.

Enter Kai, your new little best friend. Kai is about a year older, but you are way into doing everything that he does – which will hopefully soon involve multisyllabic words. A few days ago we hit up the park together with Kai and his mom.

First things first? Tempt death on the slide with diamond-plated steel steps while your father looks through the viewfinder:

The photos we can post on our other blog are a lot bigger, and will be downright huge once we go through a massive upgrade with our designers this fall…

So never fear – more ridiculous videos and photos will continue to be posted – WordPress has been good to us, but it’s time to move on.

Dear Murphy,

You, my tiny offspring, are quickly approaching two years of age. This means more independance and also a lot more belligerence towards us. We’re always looking for new outlets for your energy, because we’ve generally found you’re a lot better baby when you’re exhausted.

Enter Kai, your new little best friend. Kai is about a year older, but you are way into doing everything that he does – which will hopefully soon involve multisyllabic words. A few days ago we hit up the park together with Kai and his mom.

First things first? Tempt death on the slide with diamond-plated steel steps while your father looks through the viewfinder:

Luckily, if you had slipped Kai would have broken your fall.

You like that haircut? Yeah, me neither. I don’t actually remember asking the lady to give you the short Lloyd Christmas cut, but what’s done is done – we’ll just hope it grows back out soon. Here’s some photos of you swinging with Kai:

And just Kai:

So, the reason we went up to this park is because there is a giant…well, magical mushroom thingy in the middle of a pool that’s about 15 inches deep:

Yeah, pretty cool – you guys definitely got your parallel play on:

I assume that the above was some sort of dancing…oh, and then you guys both figured out that there were bugs in the pool…and so “Operation: Rescue beetles and hand them to a parent” commenced.

A good time was had by all…I can’t even begin to imagine what you’re scowling at in this photo – but it’s cute:

And so to all of our faithful readers (both of you) – adieu from this URL, and we’ll see you soon at the NCS Blog. Adjust your RSS readers accordingly.
