3 month pictures

When Asher was 3 months old we got pictures taken by Megan of Collide photography. It was a little mommy & baby picnic :]

our matching squints-even though he looks more like Nic here.

i carry it in my heart

Today is the 12th anniversary of my grandmother's passing & this poem sums up so much of my feelings. Its  seriously one of my all time favorites.

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
- e. e. cummings ~

isn't she such a beauty?

Four moments that changed my life;

One; 02/19/10- The day I met my Nicholas. I never knew that skipping school because my heart & soul were in desperate need of healing would have led me to the one who would make all the cliches my life.

Two; 08/10/10- Our wedding day. I never thought I would be one of "those girls", but its true I married my sweetheart after knowing each other less than six months & I haven't looked back.

Three; 02/26/11- The day perfect little boy was born. One year to the day of our first date-he came into our lives sooner than we would've expected, but I wouldn't change a thing.

Four; 07/13/99- The day my dear Grandma Crane passed away. I had known other people who had died and been to funerals, but none struck me quite as hard as hers did. It was my first taste of real loss & heartbreak. I still wish with all my heart she was here to spoil my baby with love like she did to me.

(I have to add an extra) Five; 06/25/10- This day I met a wonderful little family. They are such a blessing in my life. I know we are so lucky to have such an open and loving relationship with them, and I thank God for that every day.

three favorite foods, movies, colors.
Peaches; chocolate; ice cream.
How to Train Your Dragon; My Sassy Girl; Hachi
Purple; gray; red.

two words that describe your life right now.
emotional; joyful.

one confession.
 sometimes... sometimes I just want to cry and vent. There is no wrong thing to say, no right thing either.... all I want is for you-in your own way-to tell me you love me.

As I sit here with my boy sleeping in mylap, in the outfit my mom bought him while I was pregnant- I feel his heartbeat & listen to his noisy breathing and I'm overwhelmed by how blessed I am to call this little human mine.
