i was able to meet these fine people last year. they traveled quite a ways to come see me and the poor little guy never quite snapped out of the fell-asleep-in-the-car-and-im-not-finished-with-my-nap phase. but hey, he wasn’t crying at the end…and was still so cute. :) a lot of times people think that family pictures need to go perfectly. well, i’ll tell you a secret…they never do. i think it’s a great and important thing to capture your children AS THEY ARE NOW. pacifier, loveys, stuffed animals and all. i bet this mom doesn’t look back at the pictures of her son crying on her shoulder and wish for anything else! they grow way too fast. way. too. fast.
