Five Minute Project || Waking the Baby One Year Later

Lifestyle Personal

The other morning – at 6:45am – my littles were being especially sweet and I couldn’t resist the opportunity to sneak in and complete a little 5 minute project photo session with them. These photos were taken almost exactly one year after the photos from this post – and I really can’t believe the difference that one year makes.

These two little ones have certainly changed in that short year, but I can honestly say that they still adore each other as much as they did one year ago. Briggs still loves to sneak in a greet his sister as soon as he hears her stirring and he often insists that he must be the one to give her her first kiss of the day. As time keeps marching on, and these babies grow and grow, I hope that their love for one another is one thing that never changes.

Honoring the Sorrow
The first time I heard someone use the phrase "The rightness and wrongness of adoption," I didn't get it. I thought I did - I thought I understood the depth and meaning of that phrase - but looking back now, I know that I didn't fully understand.I thought that right and wrong were opposites, that they were separate from one another, and that the "right" covered and erased all the "wrong." But now - after seeing the face of my sweet son, after hearing his story and learning about his mother - NOW I get it. The day we got our referral, we excitedly made our way to the homes of each of our family members to share the good news and proudly show o ...
Race for the Kid
I'd like to reintroduce you to someone. Do you remember the bag-giveaway we did in February? And do you remember our big winner, Stephanie? That's right, the Stephanie who was so excited to learn that she had won that she shouted in the library. Yep. I'm talking about that very same girl. Well, you see, Stephanie is doing something HUGE for us next week. It's 26.2 miles of huge. I had the privilege of having coffee with Stephanie about a month ago. I took a picture of us that day because I wanted to tell you all about her. Unfortunately, I lost that picture. Well, unfortunately for Stephanie I lost that picture because all I have to show you ...
