So it has taken me nearly two months to get these pictures up here! The problem is that Susan takes such amazing photos it is nearly impossible for me to narrow them down to just a few. We seriously spent hours pouring over them to choose which ones to print for our wall. Here's what we came up with.
At my prenatal check up on April 23rd, the Tuesday before Addison was born, my specialist recommended an immediate induction. (I know, I still haven't shared his birth story. Coming eventually, maybe.) I talked the doctor down to waiting a few days to see if things improved. We still hadn't done maternity photos and I was definitely not feeling up to it. And it was such short notice to ask our friend with five little ones to drop everything and come do it. In the end I text her and explained the situation and she said the next morning would actually be perfect to come. I am so glad we did it since Friday I was admitted to the hospital.
I have so many other photos I love from that day I could seriously put hundreds of them here. The cherry tree was in full bloom and we did a lot of pictures there.
I think he looks just like a doll baby here.
Every time I see this man so tenderly caring for our newborns, I fall more in love with him.
Ellie is a great big sister. She has an endless supply of kisses, blankets and stories for Henry.
Big boy feet.
Samuel has grown so much this year. His two front teeth are almost in.
Brothers. So special.
We call this spring snow.
These three girls are the most amazing daughters and friends a mama could ask for.
I swear she gets more lovely each year.
Emma Rose is following in her sisters' footsteps and has grown into a beautiful young woman.
Our up and coming graduate. How did that happen so fast?
Too much cuteness for words. I am so grateful I got a few more years of pigtails with this sweet girl.
There are not many smiles in the world that can light up a room like Elisabeth's.
You are always at a disadvantage around here if you are a ticklish person like Nathaniel.
