2x12 project | april

april was a crazy, busy month!!  and by the looks of my calendar, it's only gonna get crazier!  thus, the reason why i'm so glad i started this series.  reminds me to take the time to focus on joe & i (if only to get this crazy photo taken...  ha!  his words...  and i hope he's joking...)  ;)

this month marked my first wedding of the 2012 season....  soooooooooo stoked to share angela & kris' wedding pics this week!  (yes, THIS week!!!  i'm so close!!)  :D  as well as lots of portrait sessions, a baby session and more maternity shoots than i've had in a long time!  ha!  i LOVE it!!!!!  shot another one on sunday.....  :D  josh & katherine's sneak peek will be up sometime tomorrow...

k...  sorry.  back to our april 2x12.  :D  jacob worked the camera this time...  and i must say, he did a fab job.  (possible 2nd shooter someday?!)  ;)  how awesome would that be!!!!

anyhoo....this marked the last sunday night that daddy would be leaving us for the road....  well, the last one FOR A WHILE anyways (i hope!).

we look a little TOO happy the night that he's leaving....  ;)

thought i'd share a few more of my little family.  :)  enjoy.  xo.  and PHEWF!!!!!  i made it!!!!!  posted april's 2x12 IN april!!!!  ;D

he's special. ;)

ugh. please excuse my messy hair, bushes (eyebrows) that need whacked, etc...

PS - i thought we would FOR SURE use an umbrella for this month...  ;)

i'll love you forever...

you know this book?!

yeah, i don't like it.  (...)  ok.  no, not really.  josiah comes up to me this morning and wants me to read it to him.  haha.  i'm like, "dude...you gotta prepare mommy for these things!"  ;)  seriously, seriously...i could NOT get through even the first page.  because you know how it goes, right?!

A mother held her new baby and very slowly rocked him back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. And while she held him, she sang:

I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
As long as I'm living
my baby you'll be.

...and it goes on.

BUH.  i could not get through the first page.  i was a mess and trying to choke back tears.  and you know THAT doesn't work.  especially when you have a 4 1/2 year old saying, "mommy...readdddddd........"  ;)  i'm like, "josiah......."

it's really got me lately.  how quickly time is passing.  i was driving by josiah's preschool the other day and they have a big sign out front (as they always do this time of year) saying -- NOW TAKING REGISTRATIONS FOR PRESCHOOL FALL 2012 -- and my first thought...  i won't have anybody to register this year.  ;(  boo.

...and then i had a good cry.  right there in the car.

help me, God, to truly be IN the moment.  to treasure and savour the times i have with jacob, robyn & josiah, knowing that they're only little for such a short period of time.

thank You again for the privilege of being their mom.
