Sharing my Sunshine












My baby is growing up...so fast it hurts sometimes. My head is spinning. The last time we had his pictures taken by Jael, he was only 6 months old. (As evidenced on my header and sidebar)- can you believe the difference a year made?!?). She was even taken aback by what a little man he has become in the last year.

At seventeen months old, he's walking, babbling up a storm, and completely engaged. When I saw these pictures, I saw every single thing about him that I love so well. His humor, his curiosity, his engaging smile, his beauty, his charm, his intelligence and contemplation.

We are so blessed by our son.

Have I mentioned we're in love? Hook, line, and sinker...


**These pictures were taken two weeks ago by the very talented Jael at Jael DeYoung Photography. (She's a friend of the family) If you're in the Dallas area, I cannot recommend her enough...

You can visit her website HERE for more details.

I honestly thought you were going to say those photographs were from a modeling shoot! They are incredible! Such a precious boy.

Any updates on the speech evaluation? I've been thinking about you.
