He was amazed, unsure, happy & 
afraid all at once :).

I love watching my babies grow and discover new things. I love to see what they love and what they dislike...I love to see their reactions to new things. 


I love to see the wonder in their eyes. 
It's beautiful.

also...I forgot to tell you... my little miss is crawling....

  4. That is going to be my favorite part of being a mom. Iris is only four months old and I can already barely contain myself when she learns something new and gets so proud. It's an incredible feeling!

  5. so sweet.
    i love the face aiden is making as the frog is hopping away. PRICELESS!
    one a baby starts to crawl it's so bitter sweet, they become so independent. you now what i mean. you want it but don't all at once.
    have a wonderful evening.

  7. I do so love to see the world for the first time in my babies eyes. My 2nd little boy actually catches frogs with his bare hands. And this weekend, both boys learned how to FISH for chipmunks (w/o hooks and the bait is cookie)! SOOOOO funny to see them get excited about God's world!

Your precious children will never wander what it was like when they were babies - y'all have done an amazing job documenting their lives.
