photos and such

I need these reminders almost constantly. Why doesn’t this ever feel like enough? It’s both the best job ever, and also the one I want to run away from the most. Thank goodness HE is up to the task, because I’m really really not.

Miss Adelaide’s 8 month photos. The child doesn’t hold still, and I have a maximum of 1.5 minutes to complete the whole “shoot” before she tips the basket and speed crawls away with various items stuffed in her mouth like a puppy. I feel like this shot is nothing less than a miracle actually.


This one shows off her personality a bit better though…


She is currently an incredibly happy, content baby. But there is something hiding there under the surface of all that easy baby business. A flash of temper, an insatiable curiosity, a cheeky glint in those smiling eyes… I think we might be in for it with this one!

And then one with my precious little helper-


Juno told me this week that being a big sister was the best thing in her life. HEART WARMED.


Ok so, that’s blog post one after a hiatus and redesign.  I’m fighting the urge to try to make it something spectacular.  Instead, I want to reclaim this space to record our little family moments and memories, and find again the joy I once felt in just writing it all down.
