Well it’s about time that I share these pictures that my sweet friend Ali took for us…almost 6 weeks ago! I wish I could say it was a perfect, blissful morning full of joy and laughter…but the truth is, it was far from it. I was stressed to the max, my armpits were sweating like a teenage boy’s, Nash refused to fall asleep (even though he’d spent his whole life sleeping up until this point), and Arden…oh Arden…she was a disaster with a capital D. I know she didn’t wake up thinking, “Today, I’m going to sabotage Nash’s pictures”…but it kind of felt that way 😉 We offered everything under the sun to get her to cooperate for a few shots, but even the promise of ICE CREAM couldn’t get the toddler mess express under control.
However…by some miracle, Ali put up with us AND got some amazing pictures. Even though the chaos of that morning is burned into my brain, these sweet pictures are a reminder that underneath it all there is a whole lot of love.
I mean…just look at those faces. I can’t handle it.
Chris likes to call these pictures “Ebony & Ivory”
This little peanut. He looks so different already!
I spy Hazel…
This must be what it feels like to stare into a mirror 🙂
Thank you, Ali!
