mother's day portraits
hey, so i'm sure you all heard we jumped forward an hour. and can i just say i freakin hate it. i love everything that it indicates; more daylight, spring is coming, pizza dinners at the playground, etc. but why do i feel like i've been beaten up over the loss of an hour!? point of fact, i am an insane night owl. so yesterday, dragging myself through the day, we headed over to the in laws for weekly sunday dinner. it was good to be back to that act of normalcy. our first sunday back from CA, the one that was the day after our return, we had to skip due to older child having fever and an incident involving vomit. moving on...over the course of the weekend my friend gave me a bunch of hats she had crocheted on the sly for me. ah they are so cute! i am really nuts for any hat with ear flaps, pom poms or ears. nuts. so of course, yesterday being a sunny day i thought hell, i'll bring em over and see if i can find a head or two.
it just so happened both baby niece and baby nephew wore colors complimentary to the hat. so i looked around for a well lit spot. my in laws do not have great light in their house. have i mentioned that? (ha...ha...) so i had to open the front door to the house and then just propped myself in the threshold of the door. and pretty much just let them play. we hung out for quite a while actually. this has always been me. even as a kid bopping from place to place with my mom to visit friends, i always found the youngest kid in the house and hung out with them. i babysat as soon as anyone would leave a baby with me. i am very soothed by the presence of these little souls. especially when they're not mine and i get to be a bit more relaxed, haha.
Henry decided my finger was a good teething toy. i agreed. sometimes, when i think about all these little nieces and nephews that love all us aunts and uncles the way they do, it kinda makes my heart explode.
i can not wait until Mary is sitting, because currently it is difficult to get a pic of the two of them.
and guys, i'm not sure if it signals the coming of the apocalypse, but my big kid let me take his picture. and instead of looking borderline insane, he instead looks almost happy, but also like he almost might cry. i'll take what i can get.
ok, Mother's Day Mini Sessions! April 17th! stay tuned for a post later in the day with all the details! xo isabel
