Turning double digits is a big deal - it’s the last year all of your fingers can represent your age at once, transitioning into more responsibilities but still open to super silliness, and able to tolerate your picture taken with a little more maturity/a little bit of attitude/and a LITTLE bit of appreciation for your aunt’s humor ❤️....The world is waiting to see you realize all of your wonderful potential, young lady...Shine bright ❤️
When the joy in a mama’s heart is fully in line with that in her daughter’s... ❤️ One last summer session in before the football season takes over and busy schedules become more regular. ❤️ Having perspective on how your child fits in your arms or measures up seems to last so long day to day until there is a difference that sneaks up on you...Documenting your current ‘now’ is so special to bring you back to this very moment before it is replaced... ❤️ What is your favorite moment captured with your family in a picture? What do you wish you had a photo of to hold onto? I feel like so many memories I have stem from photos I held as a child...I hope that this mama remembers how blissful it is to hold her small children at this stage in their lives. ❤️ More to follow on my Facebook page...Double tap if you remember moments like these with loved ones...or feel a little inspired to capture them ❤️.
Moments go by in our lives when we think we will always remember how they felt or that they will last just long enough. When you are waiting for your first child, you know you don’t know what you are heading into fully, but you also don’t realize how fully that this life of just the two of you or just you will be on pause for a good long while. My hope is that these quick moments captured while no toddlers are running around or bedtimes are looming still are remembered as so very special…waiting for that light to arrive and still enjoying all of the glances and smiles that come knowing that their lives are becoming more fulfilled together… 💙 I can’t wait to experience the next chapter as they expand our family by one. Two grandmothers get to watch another grandchild become a parent, two sets of parents get to experience one of the best jobs (or so I have heard) of becoming grandparents, and I get to watch someone I consider to be my youngest brother become a dad with someone who has become like another sister-in-law (whether or not either of them know this). I wish them happiness and health in the next 6 weeks and a few more moments to pause and breathe in their now before their lovely world is shared with a new life (and @griffey_thebernedoodle becomes a big brother).
Today this little family will grow… The ability for a family that is centered around one baby to then love another just as much is amazing. All of their hands will have a new set of hands to hold, their noses can rub a new one. The arms of mama and dada will be a little bit more full. Double tap to show this family your love and support. Our world will be bigger and brighter today…
