I have been blessed with so many sweet nieces and nephews, and it is a privilege to photograph them! These 3 are on my husband’s side of the family.
Alisha is 1/2 yr. older than Kirsten, and they are the best of friends. I remember when they were little, how they would fight sometimes 🙂 Times have changed, and I’m so glad they have each other, because after them came the wave of boys 🙂 Alisha, you are growing up into a beautiful young lady!
Next in line, Zachary. We call him Zac, and he loves to tease 🙂 Love that grin, Zac!
And last is Brandon. I won’t say his nickname. It would embarrass him 🙂 He and Zac are 11 months apart. Yes, their momma had her hands full when they were little 😉 My boys love to be together with them! Brandon, your smile is terrific!
Like I said, I am a blessed aunt 🙂
I hope your weekend went well, and your week ahead is even better 🙂
She sits on my lap, never still, always wiggling. And proceeds to (how to say this delicately), pass gas. And the smell, it is bad! Then she hugs me and says, “Mom, will you forgive me?” Of course I will 🙂
The bed is her stage as she looks at herself in the mirror, talking to herself. “You know I’m gonna be a Jenna sister? Yes, yes I am, Mom said!” (She means a big sister) 🙂 I think God knows when I need some encouragement 🙂
I lay on the recliner. My hair is a sight, still in my pj’s, because of that yucky morning sickness. And she hugs my neck, and says “Beautiful mommy”. I love her!
On a side note, whomever came up with the term, morning sickness? Does anyone really only feel sick in the morning? At any rate, one day at a time is how we get through, right?
She has perfected the shoulder shrug. She sees older siblings in action 🙂 And then she proceeds to say, “That’s so lame!” We have our hands full with this one 🙂 And all the others 🙂 Sometimes we think what are we doing bringing another life into the world? We just don’t have this parenting thing figured out! But you just do the best you can, and ask for so much grace. And God gives it. More than we deserve.
