I never thought I could love so much. I still need to pinch myself every once in a while that I have this little guy. He has changed my life in every way. My sister always makes fun of me and says "I waited 12 years for a babbbaaayy" when he is driving my crazy. Mocking me.... :) smarty pants.....but, really it's true. I waited a long time (not by choice) for him. He was so worth the wait. I volunteered last week at his school for his classroom celebration. The class prays before every meal. I was so proud of him, watching him pray with his friends. I was lucky to grab this shot. A little out of focus, but perfectly imperfect. Just how life is sometimes. At the end of the day he has taught me to just appreciate all the little things. That's what I am thankful for. These tiny moments. I will cherish them forever.

This is me........

One thing that is really important to me is that True have a love of books. I have read to him nearly every night since he was around 9 months old. We get piles of books and cuddle in bed in our Pj's and it is our special time. I really wanted pictures of us being US. I asked my sister to take some photos of us when I went to Solvang a few months ago. These moments are the things I want to remember and hold onto after my baby has grown. I adore all of these pictures for what magic they are capturing between me and my boy. All of these were taken with her Contax camera. She is very brave shooting medium format film with her crazy nephew running around and acting silly. But you cannot duplicate the look. It's like butter. I am so happy, I love these!!
