It seems that when there’s more than 2 children in a household, there aren’t too many quiet moments. So, when I went to visit little Brielle a week after her birth, I was able to see a house with 5 kids (plus 2 visiting!) in action. And even though I was only there for about 30 minutes, I could tell there was LOTS going on! Even last week when I went back to hang out and get some “we have a new house and a new baby” pictures, it was still a party with just the 5 kids! But you know what, I loved it. Jim and Julia’s kids are precious… they’re so respectful and so loving. And yes, I know they are still kids and probably aren’t like that ALL the time, but it’s really hard not to love them :-)
Enjoy some of my favorites from our session!
From youngest to oldest… Yara
This is Jent.
This is Dayleah…
Auburn is the oldest. And I can’t believe he’s 11.
And you all know Brielle :-)
Isn’t she just precious? And how proud are these parents??
Yara still looks like a baby doll to me. And she was cracking us up as she played with Julia’s hair!
Oh my heavens, I love this one.
And I love this one…
And this one!!
These boys will be so good at protecting and loving their mom and sisters. I’m super excited to see the young men they’ll soon become.
And this is their new house! I wish y’all could see some of the before pictures of the inside… and what all they’ve accomplished since then. It’s beautiful!
Before I left, Jim wanted some pictures with each of his kids.
And oh my word, y’all know how I get seeing daddies with their daughters! SO PRECIOUS!
I’m hoping we have some cuddlebugs of our own one of these days. I love this.
Dayleah, you are growing up! I still can’t believe it :-)
And Auburn? He’s almost not even a kid anymore!
I just wanted to say thank you to everyone one more time for last week. We were able to raise some awareness for some amazing companies with incredible causes AND we were able to donate towards them! And you guys made me feel so special on Friday for my birthday! Between the blog posts and Facebook wishes, I definitely felt loved. So… it’s time for the last winner announcement! I’ve had so much fun clicking the “Pick a Winner” button and waiting while the little wheel spun to see whose name would pop up! And this morning was no exception! The winner of a pair of TOMS of her choice is… Joanna Baldridge!!! Congrats, girl!
Happy (cold!) Monday, everyone! Prayers are going out for those up north as Sandy comes through… stay safe!
