Yesterday we ran part one of photos featuring you guys and your parents. Since there were so many in the Flickr Pool we figured it made sense to split the posts into two. Without further ado, here's part two!

Check it! It's the family behind George's super hip bedroom.

Both the faces in this photo are priceless: baby is totally all, "Do you know what we're even doing right now?!"

OMG, joy+happiness+love+sunflowers+sunshine = this. So much bliss!

I think there's a distinct possibility that Kate made both of these hats — Mama-baby knit hat matching? YES.

Just because these posts are finished doesn't mean you can't keep adding your photos — we want to see 'em! It's so fun to see readers AND their kids. Send them to us!

    • I'm considering bringing back the Monday Mama Montages — quite a few people have mentioned them in the comments for these two posts. We stopped doing them in favor of the AM Adorbz.. but a rebirth might be in order!

  1. When you take a photo of your kid, you see so much love.
    When you take a photo with your kid, the world gets to see it too.
    That's why these posts are so beautiful.

  2. While I'm a knitter who usually covers my poor daughter in all the stuff I've made those two particular hats were made by our dear friend Bethany. The original article made me WAY more aware of how few pictures I'm in with my daughter. I'm actively working to fix that. Ever since I saved up and bought my first camera as a teen I've been the one behind the camera.
