Day 97 – Pictures Worth a Thousand Words

On April 3rd, while the kids were on Spring break we partook in a maternity / family photo shoot. I could not be happier with the pictures that Kelly took of me and my sweet, sweet family. I’m so glad we decided to do this — just sorry I didn’t do it with my previous pregnancies! These are such a beautiful keepsake of this precious time we know we still have with Nora. Here are a few photos from that day:

The one of Greta blowing the dandelion “dust” brought me to tears!! That was such a spontaneous, candid moment that I had kind of forgotten about until we got the pictures back.

β€œAll people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord endures forever.” (1 Peter 1:24-25)
