pics with miss megan

I begged Megan to take Griffin’s six month pictures. Levi calls her Miss Megan. She has taken six month pictures of all my kids…Cora included. I love that. Right after our photo shoot, Megan decided she wouldn’t be taking family pictures this year. Phew…we were lucky. Hopefully my crazy family wasn’t the reason for her decision. πŸ™‚
Six month pictures are the one thing that all my kids will have that are the same. It might sound silly, but it is something that is important to me. When I see all of their six month pictures, my family feels whole for just a moment.
I feel like their little personalities start shining through around six months and I love how that has been captured in these pictures. What a gift that we had a peek into Cora’s personality even though she was with us for such a short time. They all have similarities and differences but they are each fearfully and wonderfully made unique by our Creator God…they are the only one just like them. And, oh, how I love them each so much.
Cora & Levi :: 6 months
Cora was serious. You had to work to get her to smile, but when she did she would flash you the sweetest grins. Pure little girl sweetness. Levi was a cheese-ball (and still is!). You didn’t have to work at all to get him to smile. He was always smiling. He gave big open mouth grins the whole time.Β 
Griffin :: 6 months
Griffin not only reminds us so much of his sister in looks, but also in personality. He is much more serious than Levi. He made us work hard for a smile. He was too busy being a boy and eating dirt and grass. But his smiles are pure sweetness when you finally get one. Levi can make him smile the most…but he was exploring the farm with Megan’s girls and wasn’t interested in helping us out much!
Β {there is that grass going into his mouth}
And a few of Mr. Cheese-ball himself.

I love this one.
It reminds me so much of this one we took with Cora.
Thank you Megan for being patient with my two silly boys (especially the big one) and for capturing these sweet moments with my family.
