Wordless Wednesday: It's A Sure Sign of Spring

Dirt.  Everywhere.

Above the Law

With each baby boy I have taken pictures of him with his daddy's dress hat from the police department.   All of the boys have one at 6 months old and I treasure those photographs!

Can you tell which baby is which?

Before/After Photography Post

Such a great photo of my aunt, Sara, and our little Lachlan. I was disappointed in the lighting with the picture turnout and with such a small window of time to capture it.  I use my Canon 1000D set at 1/60 and was using no flash, as the lighting seemed right in previous pictures.  I lightened the contrast and played with the color saturation.  Not a great turn out, but a moment saved.

Time sure flies when we're having fun!

A Lot of Lovin'

It's hard to believe that these babies of mine are getting so big and are getting to be such little men. I'm amazed at who they are as little people, how they contribute to the family, their friends, and one another. They are such a blessing. Despite the chaos, the craziness, the mess, and the refereeing, I am a proud mom of three beautiful blessings and I wouldn't change anything about my life with them.  Each of our boys is intricate and special with personalities that sparkle.  They amaze me.

Sir Gentle Spirit
He is the leader of the trio by far.  With a gentle spirit and a sweet disposition, he helps his brothers to understand and learn, often correcting and making right what may be wrong. He is the pleaser of the boys, always wanting to make right his wrongs.  Sensitive and loving.  A once "hyper" boy has settled into a quieter, calmer state of being, but is not ready to give up his mischievous ways. Still testing the limits, but careful while doing so. Thrives on love, respect,
and attention from Mom and DadA true lover.
Favorites:  Anything outside.  Singing and dancing. Playing with his brothers,  Coloring and drawing, special time with mom or dad, and French Toast. 
Not-so-Favorites:  Sweets (especially frosting), napping, and getting cold.

The Big-Hearted Tester
Maybe I should call this brother Most Improved.  He's our tester.  Always checking out what and Cans and Cannots are for virtually every situation, and when he comes across a "cannot", he's got to see what the consequence might be.  We often times forget that Mr. Big Heart is technically a toddler still, but with his quick wit, exponential vocabulary, and mature ways, we often have to remind ourselves he's still just a baby.  He's quickly learned what it is to be a big brother, but with brute force.  He forgets his strength and is often found to be hugging and kissing the little ones a little too roughly.  We keep a close eye on him.  He has the heart of an angel.  Always affectionate and great manners.  He loves to pray to Jesus and thank Him for all of his friends and family (he'll go on for hours if you let him), and enjoys to sing praise and worship songs.  He's got a personality that shines and often makes us laugh and shake our heads at the same time.
Favorites:  Eats anything and everything, LOVES sweets, enjoys time with his brothers, loves cuddles with Mom and Dad
Not-so Favorites: Depends on the day and time.  He's a toddler, remember!?

The Angel
For sure the most loved by his brothers.  A true angel.  His smiles light up a room.  He sleeps through the night next to mom and dad, a great cuddler.  He loves to giggle and squeal!  Most recently he babbles and laughs loud for all to hear and giggle as well.  He enjoys his brothers' crazy antics and often roots them on, even if the actions aren't "good choices", to his brothers' delight. He plays on his own. Loves to see new things, and can't get enough of new foods, toys, and anything else he can get his gums on.
Favorites: Pears, Applesauce, Blocks, and cuddling
Not-so Favorites: Being left alone, loud noises (brothers), and being in his carseat

We've got a lot to be thankful for and lots of loving to give!We are blessed.
