as i was scavengering through last month’s photos i came across some precious images that blessed my heart – pictures of our sprouts together. a rarity for sure. these days sterling rarely stays in one place long enough for me to capture him in digital format and even more rare* are those opportunities to catch our sprouts together… without a little too much squeezing going on or a little too much crying.
in this picture i can hear myself saying: “oh for the love of stickers please sit still and look at mommy! just one more!”
look at those precious smiles… so thankful i was able to capture this amazing moment in time!
and now for a little piece of real life – bath time. and a chance to document our humble attempt at ingenuity… turning an oversized and useless desk into a diaper changing/bathing station.
notice the rags cuddle each one is holding. sterling loves to cuddle when he’s tired… and apparently he thinks liberty does too ’cause when he cuddles he also likes to make sure she has a cuddle of her own.
the playmat has proven to be the most likely place to capture images of our sprouts together. thanks playmat. you were worth the $12!
in the midst of all his boy-ness there’s still a sweet tenderness…
and now for the perfect end of day top-off…
givin’ and receivin’ some love…
we end our days together by thanking God for each other. sterling gets a kick out of stealing mommy’s list: sterling, liberty and good health. i’m also especially thankful for the sweet gift of our sprouts… together.
* rare in this case refers to the number of outtakes there were!
