Ten Years Old

I still find it hard to believe my oldest is now ten years old!  I mean there's just something about that number that made it a little harder than normal birthday on his mother!  I love watching my kids grow up, but at the same time I sometimes wish to freeze time.  As much as these days are really crazy with lots of little ones, we are all together, every single day, and I love it that way. (well, at least most moments, believe me I have plenty of moments that I need a break from all those littles!)  Anyways, I'm trusting the Lord will give grace for each stage from the littles to now a kiddo in double digits!
So, Josiah is a serious book worm.  He read almost 100 books in a little over six weeks for the library challenge this summer.  Now about twenty of those were short books he read to his younger siblings, but still, the kid loves to read!  These old books that Tj has found second hand different places are some of his favorites.  He's read them over and over and so I thought it would be fun to include them in his photo shoot.
 Looking back over these pictures I'm thinking he looks too grown up and serious in all of them.  I mean he still is a fun, silly boy and I should have gotten some of those pictures too.  But for the time he was all business.  Well, except for the time he was wanting to stand on top of one of the walls for pictures, but mom vetoed that.  He's probably thinking let's just get this over with. :)

 My children love bubbles and I find them fun to take pictures of.  :)

Friday Favorites

My sweet kiddos on July 4th.  These two pictures were taken basically right after each other and I find it funny that you can see the girlie on the far right dancing around.  That is so her!  She doesn't stay still for very long.

Three Months

This little sweetheart smiles, laughs, coos and melts our hearts.  We are so in love with her!

Baby A: 1 Month Old

So these pictures are now over a month old.  I can't believe how quickly my baby girl is growing!  The time is going to quickly for me.  We are all so in love with our little sweet heart.  She is our first spring baby.  So when the lilacs were all in bloom when she turned one month I thought it would be cute to include some in her one month photos.

 These are just a few black and white pictures from a couple days later.

Sunshine Created

Two of my younger sisters, Joy and Frances, run an Etsy shop called "Sunshine Created".  They make adorable dresses and cute home decor items.  This dress was made by Joy and I love how it turned out!  She makes really cute, one of a kind dresses.  If you're looking for a sweet dress for a photo shoot, for church, or a special occasion, or just because you love to see your little girl dressed in cute dresses, you should check out her shop here.
I should say my daughter loves her dresses from Sunshine Created as well.  I bought another one along with this one that had pink in it. I don't buy that much pink stuff for my girls and they do love pink.  So, I was surprised that my girlie seems to like this one as much as the pink one.  
These pictures were even taken in Florida sunshine when we were down there a couple weeks ago. :)
