When my friend Ali suggested we take Nash’s one year pictures in Manhattan, I was instantly excited (never mind the fact that this conversation took place at his newborn pictures, almost a year earlier). Ali lives a few hours away in Wichita, but her family also has football season tickets, so meeting in the Little Apple on a game weekend was the perfect choice. Plus it’s just so darn pretty there. So a couple Fridays ago we loaded up
half of our house the car and headed west, getting there just in time for dinner and bedtime. After the kids were asleep, I laid out our picture clothes, set alarms, and even tested the new lip color I’d bought for the occasion. And then Nash (the star of the show, mind you) decided not to sleep…AT ALL.
I mean…isn’t that the way it always goes?
But still, somehow, he managed to look rested and so darn adorable…our happy camper, indeed 🙂
And because they wouldn’t be family pictures if they didn’t end like this 🙂
Happy Birthday Eve, Nash-Man!
