“many of the most deeply spiritual moments of my life haven’t happened just in my mind or in my soul. they happened while holding my son in the middle of the night, or watching the water break along the shore, or around my table, watching the people I love feel nourished in all sorts of ways.”
– Shauna Niequist Can you believe Joshua is already 6 months old?! The last time I saw him was for his newborn portraits, and earlier this week he came over so we could take some updated family photos! I’ve said it before and I think this post will prove it again, 6-8 months old is my absolute FAVORITE age to photograph! I love how smiley, expressive, curious, and engaging they are at this age! Joshua is just the happiest baby, and Jillian is SO smitten with her baby brother.. a perfect combo :) Nobody could make Joshua laugh as hard as his big sister could, and it seemed like everytime he would give a BIG belly laugh he would cover his mouth just like this :)
oh hey, buddy! isn’t he the sweetest?!
BELLY! again with that belly laugh for Jillian.. he couldn’t even hold himself up when he really started laughing! oooh these two, they make quite a pair :) I LOVE how much she adores her baby brother! Jillian is ALL about ‘family hugs’, I think she would spend all day right here if she could ! these quiet, sweet snuggles with her mama didn’t last for more than a few seconds, but man they sure are cute while they last!! such a happy boy! every mama needs a picture with her babies: Thanks again for coming over for the afternoon! Can’t wait to see you guys again soon! :) Happy Wednesday!
