when they met.


I realized today that I haven’t posted the pictures of Aiden & Ainsleigh meeting Apple for the first time! (5 weeks later) 

I really want to have these on this little space to look back on… I love how you can see the tenderness in their faces. Perfectly captured. 

They have been so sweet with her. She is doing fabulous and has transitioned into our family just perfectly. All her have been great! Just looking back on these I am reminded again how grateful I am to all be home together.

 We are a happy crew over here :).

    This is so precious Casey. We found out Monday that my sister's baby (she will be deivered on Monday via C section) has water on her brain and will go straight to the NICU and possibly have brain surgery. I immediately thought of you as I prayed for strength for my sister and our family. Thanks for always sharing your raw feelings

    LOVE LOVE LOVE Aiden's face while looking at his little sis. I got a little weepy there πŸ™‚ My favorite pic (possibly even of all time from you) is the one where he's got his little cheek resting on his arm and all those sweet bandaids up and down his legs- p.r.e.c.i.o.u.s.

    how sweet that these two kiddos don't even realize that they were in that same exact spot; tubes and wires everywhere as such a little soul. how precious that they get to see their sister and love her.
