Emma came home to see the Omaha Bouchers.
Oh baby love.
Melinda and I took the boys upstairs to find some light and get a few pictures.
They behave like normal children. Full of life and glee.
I snapped and sweated and chirped and sang.
They wiggled and squirmed and screamed.
And then...a moment of tenderness and light.
Oh! They are so dear. They are really nice to be around. Matthew and Melinda are doing a wonderful job parenting the boys. It's a pleasure to see.
When it comes to formal portraits at this age, singletons are best for those perfect poses.
More than one child in the picture and I have to change my idea of perfection. In fact, it has to become about capturing the moment. I have never met a 2 1/2 year old and a 10 month old who will sit pretty for a portrait. And in order not to drive myself crazy I have to relax about it. In acceptance lieth peace.
They are such dear little guys.
Thank you Matthew and Melinda for making the trip and visiting us!
We love you all so much!
