I can't believe MY BABY is 13!! When did he go and grow up? I swear one day I blinked and he went from being a sweet lil' baby to this amazing kid. I call him my big boy now.

Sadly, we lost almost all his photos from under age 5 when our home burned down but I was able to find this one … [Read more...]

I love this time of year. Clearly not for the weather but because my kids let me take tons of pictures of them. I have such a hard time coordinating clothing for them though since Sawyer is in toddler sizes, Gavin in big kid sizes, and Johnny is officially in adult sizes.
