There is much to be done as far as unpacking/painting/decorating goes. But I have to remind myself that there's no rush. Our days have been so packed lately--and that's before we add in homeschooling two children. Liam will be starting 2nd grade and Kai will be starting Kindergarten. I just need to find some spelling curriculum for Liam. Any suggestions? He's an excellent reader...but spelling isn't his strong suit.
Anyway, before too much more time passes, (how has it almost been 6 weeks already?!?!) I wanted to share these pictures from the first time the kids got to meet their baby brother.
we'll have to work on those smiles. I promise they were all super excited to meet him
our first photo as a family of 7--not the best...but I love it.
I think this picture accurately portrays Liam's love for his brother
With all the craziness of life, I have barely been able to pull out the DSLR. It makes me very sad. I'm so thankful for phones with cameras. It sure does make it easy to take (hundreds!!) of pictures. But I love taking pictures with the DSLR. So I hope to be able to use it a little bit more in the near future. When Desmond was about 10 days old, I was able to take a few pictures with it. I have no idea what I'm doing with newborn photography but Desmond was the perfect model. He slept through all the re-positioning.
I just love that sweet face!
Now we're in the midst of picking out paint colors and making lists of what we need to buy for the new house. I was thinking about sharing the listing pictures of our house on my next blog post to document the "before" condition of our house. I'm excited to finally start changing things up and making this house a home!
