Family Photos

I love, love, love, love, looooooooooooooooooooooooove this little girl. So cute. I feel bad that she doesn't get held much because she's just so chill on her own. Most of the time. She maybe cries a total of 1/2-1 hour per day (about 5-10 minutes each time we put her to bed). Ridiculously awesome. And please note, my other kids were not so easy so I can really appreciate this!
She is currently obsessed with figuring out her hands. She will stare at them and move them and try to get them in her mouth. She is working SO hard to get her thumb in her mouth but can't do it yet. She gets frustrated but doesn't give up. She loves to suck on her fist. She's also getting so much better at reaching out and grabbing at her toys. So cute:)

On Monday we met up with our friends, Megan and Steve, to do a quick family photo swap. You might think that we get our photos taken a lot and I will say that yes, we probably do. It will be done every single year too. It's important to us/me:)

We just switched camera cards, took a few photos of each other's families, and we were good to go! It's always good to talk with them and hang out. Gary and Steve talk about cameras and lenses, and Megan and I talk life/weddings/kids/business etc. Good times! The kids had fun together too:)

I just wanted one good family photo to put on canvas in our home and I think this one is it:
It was nap time for Nya so she wasn't so into it but she did okay.

Um, how cute are the kids?! They wanted to get a picture together and of course, that was the one where they all looked nicely at the camera:) If one of our boys married one of their girls, imagine how many good pictures would be in their wedding slideshow:)

It is so crazy hot out there, I am so thankful that we don't have a wedding this weekend:) We have an air conditioner on our main floor that keeps life comfortable.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Love, Louise
