beating like moth's wings

blessing day.
jonah wore a simple shirtdress i made from a simple fabric that reminds me of sitting cross legged on the floor in a friend's home as a child, playing chutes and ladders after school. -- i think it was the bed skirt or maybe the window treatment that was a perfect white eyelet.
worlds colliding, both of our families lined the back four pews at church. there are a lot of us and baby girl is lucky to have so many who love her already.
it was a happy day and a welcomed calm that doesn't seem to happen near enough.

since then i've been binging on some happy tunes: passion pit -- to kingdom come

perfection.

I like your outfit and your hair. (that sounds weird)

I love all the family portraits on your porch. it's fun to notice all the little changes over the same backdrop. I keep fast forwarding and thinking of what the time line will look like, looking back.

I love you guys so much. miss you.

the family looked great, especially miss jonah.

i got a little choked up when i read the family filled pews part. that is what it's all about.

A beautiful blessing it was.

Great looking family picture. Your boys expressions are fun - and for once you are looking at the camera and smiling - yeah that's right, I vist your blog every so often via Jen Ray's - hope you don't mind.

What a hot little family. Is it weird seeing a family picture with three children instead of two? It looks so much more... complete... not sure how to explain it. Anyway, I am rambling but I love this family pic. Love the dress you created, it's perfect, and I love the red coat on you.
