She is even more beautiful and precious than I could have imagined.
Hope you all had a lovely and blessed Easter.
Yes, that one on the right is my disgustingly swollen pregnant foot in September 2006. People probably think I exaggerate when I tell them I had Fred Flintstone feet, but you can see compared to my mom's foot on the left, my feet were freakishly swollen. Thank you Lord it has not been near as bad this time around.
I also love how you can see my bags were packed for the hospital and the outfits we planned to bring the [then gender unknown] baby home in were ready to go. I think I may have had Logan the day after this photo was taken.
This time around I am taking a similar approach but with less time on my hands I discovered this brilliant idea:
...adorable little monthly stickers that go straight on to a onesie. I can't tell you how many "oops" pictures I have of Logan trying to eat my signs or drooling on them. I think these will make the process a little easier (and it doesn't hurt that they are so darn cute).
Even though it can cost a lot of time and effort to print, store, upload, organize and edit photos, I was reminded yesterday as I went through the piles just how priceless those little photos really are. Each little photo captures moments of time - and usually the little details we have long forgotten until we stop to enjoy them again.
Sitting in our bed last night, Ryan and I went through several albums with Logan just eating up the photos of himself growing up ("dat baby Nogan! awww!"), and it was such a nice memory in itself. So in the meantime, I'll keep on printing and collecting these albums and taking the time to stop and show Logan and Lauren the years of photos we will have collected of their precious childhood - and in turn it is my hope that they will discover just how sweet our life has been because they were in it...
