A {sweet} trip down memory lane.

Our lives, full of pitter-patter.
Cute, chubby arms.
Rocking little ones to sleep.
Siblings sleeping together... because they wanted to.


Girlie chatter.
Big hugs.
Daddy playing the role of  "cheese monster".
Mommy making fast grocery runs,
before the snacks ran out that occupied lil' fingers.


Big sister.
Pre-Kindergarten.
Reading.
T.V. completely hidden by masking tape 'art'.
No Tooth Fairy to make an appearance. 


Little sister.
Bare feet.
Band-aid bandit.
Scribbler on skin.


Living room tents.
Dress up.
Exploring.
Tumbling on toddler bed mattress,
on the floor.


"I do it myself."
Eating colors.
Art with Mom's favorite lipstick.
Singing.
"Swing me higher!"


"That's too high!"
Hair bows.
Counting... "2,2,2,2,2,2".


Barney.
Dora The Explorer.
Veggie Tales.
A refusal to potty-train from a certain 3 year old.


Fatherhood.
Motherhood.
An answered prayer to infertility.
Toy-strewn house.
Content heart.


Strong spirit.
Simple faith.
Unconditional love.


This was over 5 years ago.
One of my first {picture-happy} photo shoots with our girls.
Point and shoot Kodak.


Same spot, different year.
Where has the time gone?
Invested.
In the hearts of those we hold dear.

Sweet Shot Day

  10. I absolutely adore this post and the photos are gorgeous, but of course they would be with such beautiful subjects! My how this makes me
    miss those days oh so long ago, with my kids! I don't know what happened... I blinked and now they're grown. Wait a minute, does that mean I'm old now? How did that happen? Lol.

    I love how you edited the pics, the sepia tone is lovely. Did you use a sepia action? Do you mind me asking? It's hard to find a sepia tone that I like and I love yours so I just had yo ask. :)
