Little Beauty!

I feel so fortunate to be able to capture the spirit of children.

From their playfulness, to their seriousness, to their tender little hearts.

A childs beauty never ceases!

A few short weeks...

36 weeks

Dear little June bug-

We are almost there!

We finally got your room painted and daddy started putting

together your crib that we got from auntie Heather. We also put together your stroller and practiced folding and unfolding it. Daddy was being so funny (you'll realize he is like that a lot!)You continue to move and shake and amaze us every day.

I find myself being so excited I could almost burst at times!

Me and daddy got maternity pictures done around the land here last week...yay,

pictures of the two of us!

You are our little (BIG) blessing.

Just a few short weeks and you will be in our arms.

Nearing motherhood...

I hope to be as good of a mom as my mother has been to me.

I hope my child knows that they can come to me with anything and that

I will be there for them no matter what.

I hope that I can teach values through simple lessons and modeling.

I hope that I am generous and patient with them always.

I hope to give them the freedom to play without constraint so they can discover their dreams.

And I hope that my arms and shoulders are as comfortable as my moms too.

Thanks Mom!!

Cuties in Spring!

This little boy turned 3 at the end of March and we have been waiting for a nice day to get pictures outside. The day he turned 3, his little sister turne 6 months! SO, finally last Wednesday they came for picture. I just love these two...they happen to belong to my dear friend Emily.

He is such a big boy now...we were playing between trees!

Just look at those eyes and those cheeks!!

Seriously adorable!

Emily bought this bench at a garage sale last year...score.

So sweet!

It looks like he is telling her a secret! I edited this one a little

different; I like the old time feel! While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.

Our bodies will separate and you will rely on me to listen

to your cues for what you need. Baby, I will do my best

to give you what you need and be attentive to your cues.

I will hold you and love you and give you all that I am!
