In Short Supply

I think that these might be the only pictures that exist of Roman and I. Not kidding. That's the thing about being 'the photographer''re never in the pictures. And so far, no one has been able to produce a shot of me in the hospital with Roman either. Maybe I looked SO BAD no one dared, in which case I say thank you. But still. I'm going to have to do something about this situation.
This photo was taken on Roman's blessing day. David did a beautiful job. I mean really. It is always so incredible to listen to words from his heart, given through God's power, bestowed upon our children. I'm grateful.
I always think to myself, this is the first of many father's blessings, and the first of many ways David will be a blessing to our children. David's role, his presence is something I could never duplicate. I am so happy he is eager to be a father in the truest sense.

He ain't heavy, he's my brother

Greatest gift my parents gave sisters and brothers. I hope to find the magic glue they used to bind us together. The love I have for them is immense, territorial, and unconditional. The joy that comes when I see this same budding relationship amongst my own children is incredible. It helps remind me that this work, this job I've chosen, is pretty important. Pretty important to me.

Celebrating 365

How does it happen so fast!? Seems like just yesterday I was taking THESE photos of the little babe. And now, Brock is walking around and has been initiated into the 'I love birthday cake' club.

Zoo - KC style

Happy Birthday cousin Brock...he turned 1!
The thing I love and hate about the Kansas City Zoo is how spread out it is. Takes a LONG time to get from exhibit to exhibit.
Good: the animals have lots of space to roam, you can walk amongst the kangaroos, peacocks and such, great exercise for me!
Bad: kids get tired of walking, I'm not into the triple stroller idea, and if you happen to get stuck in a downpour (like we did) your heart out.
We haven't been since we lived here 2 years ago and were pleasantly surprised by all the upgrades and new features.

Mr. Roman slept the whole time, saved all his smiles for dad.
