Family Pictures!

We got our family pictures taken a few weeks ago at the Lauritzen Gardens, down the road from were we live. Eli is 2 months and Ava is almost 3. I love the pictures with them together, you can tell how proud Ava is to be Eli's big sis. I'm so thankful for the beautiful family I have been blessed with.
I ordered this book called "To Children Love is Spelled T-I-M-E". It has been a great book in helping me rememeber the most important job I have is being a mom. I've been making a special effort this last week to enjoy the small things like: holding Ava's hand while we are watching a movie, all the little kisses she gives me throughout the day, the many expressions Ava gives as she is talking to you, the many coos and smiles Eli gives me (especially in the morning) and enjoying his little cuddles. And of course, I couldn't have any of this and be so happy if it weren't for my wonderful hisband, Justin. It is so comforting knowing they are mine and I am there's, forever.
