something of a miracle

nora + jacob, their birth here

grief and joy

sweet Sophia girl, you are with Jesus now and I am so happy that your eyes are completely and perfectly fixed on Him. there is no one better for you to be with. your parents love you so much and experiencing their joy for you was such an honor. what an incredible gift it was that I had the opportunity to hold you and meet you. meeting you has truly left a mark on my heart that will forever be there. thank you for your sweet presence in our lives and I can’t wait to really meet you one day. Andrew, you are hope. you are joy. I adore all eight precious pounds of you. you have the most loving parents in the whole world and a big sister who will mother you and protect you with a ferocious love, I just know it. thankful beyond thankful for you, baby boy.

This is Emma. Twenty minutes older than her sister and I have a feeling that might be used to her advantage someday ... :) She has the prettiest blonde eyelashes I ever did see and her chubby cheeks are just asking to be kissed!

This is Chloe. Tiny and dainty, she never made a peep and slept so soundly for her entire session. She made my job easy peasy and loved snuggling close to her "big" sister. :)
