So here we are one year after our Jack and Lily were born and we are wondering, where did the time go. Yes it was one year ago we were all just sitting around waiting for these two bundles to arrive. I can remember how uncomfortable Jen was during that time. But it has gone by fast and everyone has survived the first year. Maybe a little sleep deprived still but things are starting to settle down even though now they are getting around quite well and you can’t take you eye off of them for a second. But that’s what being a parent is all about. Yes we all love them to pieces but keeping them safe is the most important. We haven’t had their first birthday party yet but we did do these pictures with their first little birthday cakes and that was fun. I love the patriotic theme for the cakes too, it made the pictures that much more colorful. When Jen and Jim arrived at our house for these pictures they brought in a huge tub filled with all kinds of STUFF. That STUFF was all used for these pictures and was pretty much from one end of the studio to the other when we were done. They were actually afraid that Lily wouldn’t cooperate too much as she had not had her nap that she needed. However everyone was good and only had a few meltdowns (and that was Jim and Jen, LOL). When we put them in the car to go home Lily was asleep before they Jim and Jen got in and they all slept when they got home. Oh well, our little Elyse (Jack and Lily’s cousin) is up next. She is one month after Jack and Lily. Having grandchildren is an awesome job. Especially when you can create lasting memories with the ones you love. You get to take the pictures and spend time with family. It doesn’t get any better than that. Enjoy!
