Terri - Enjoyed reading the blog about Grayson. He is a very precious little boy,who won my heart on his very first visit to our home. He has the most wonderful smile and the biggest beautiful blue eyes. I enjoy all the pictures and videos that hisv mommie sends to us. I am very excited to hear how he is becoming mobile and is working so hard to reach his toys. He is very blessed to have the most awesome parents in his life!


“If we take care of the moments, the years will take care of themselves.” ~ Maria Edgeworth I’ve found myself taking less photos most days lately and instead enjoying the moments with the kids.

Nance Kidwell - The pictures are absolutely precious. I am a friend of Gabriel’s grandma Deb who shared these great pictures with us. What a perfect way to remember how beautiful new babies are and how lucky we are to have them in our lives. I love the pictures of the feet. I took one of my son’s when he was only a couple months old as I knew they would never be that tiny again. Of course I was right as now grown he wears a size 14.
