Babies and Gentlemen...

Gone are the days of chubby fingers and dimpled knuckles. Gone are the days of cribs and the mis-pronounced letter R.
My babies have grown into little gentlemen. They have grown into the 5th and 2nd grades. Are you kidding me right now?
And now we have sleepy mornings with grunts as they get out of their comfy beds. We have homework and ninja fights. We have Minecraft and “Kickin’ It”. We have “Momma, can you show me how to drive?” and “I’m not a baby anymore Momma.” We have bribed cuddles and shy dimples. We have “Momma, turn the radio down before you pull up to drop us off” and “Can I have a sleepover with my friends this weekend?”
We have the "beiber" hair swish and "peach fuzz" under armpits. We have "girlfriends" and iPad users. We have Michael Jackson lovers and movies under Teepee tents. We have ice-cream lovers and potato haters. We have... a tweenager and a big boy.

I had the most amazing opportunity to photograph my hilarious brother, sweet sister in law and her little tiny baby bump last night. The joy and sweet tenderness my brother shows to his beautiful wife and baby boy is amazing. Proud doesn’t even begin to describe the feeling. Tearing up I captured their sweet moments just weeks before they welcome this little bundle of blue to the world. And this little guy couldn’t have picked better parents.

Happiness. Right here! From the moment Trev called to tell me he was going to be a daddy to the captured moment of preparing for fatherhood. This guy is good! And Jo! I love you sister!!!
