a few oldies

Okay, so they are not really that old. But when your babies are growing up so fast, three months ago seems like a long time! My friend Laura took these when she was here visiting…Griffin was two weeks old. 
Our first family picture with two boys. Look how little Griffin was…and those cute dangling baby feet!
A daddy and his boys. Nothing sweeter.
Laura also took a few big brother, little brother pictures. I am laughing as I think back to this little photo shoot because Levi was SO not interested. I am amazed Laura got the shots that she did.
Levi tried really hard…he just does everything so fast. When you tell him to hug his brother, he does…for about one second. When you tell him to hold his brother, he does…and then pushes him off one second later. 
When you tell him to lay by his brother, he does…and then one second later he is ready to play. When you ask him where his brother’s nose is, he shows you…he just honks it really hard. At least that only lasts about a second too! 
Such is the attention span of a two year old, right?
But it is always worth trying. Because every once in awhile you catch a moment like this. This is the one that we used on Griffin’s birth announcement. My favorite. Pure sweetness.
Thank you for these precious pictures of my boys, Laura!

  • meg duerksen - wearing….not war in. 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Caroline - oh my goodness…. they are beautiful!!!

    I did some silhouettes of my kids, you can see them on my blog, but anyway I thought it would be so neat if you could do three silhouettes for your children, It would be one way you could have all three children up on the wall together.
    You would just need to find a profile shot of Cora, or even find one close enough and draw it on your own.
