Each morning my daughter and I snuggle up on the couch in our pj’s with cuddles while miss Aurora Rose enjoys a warm bottle of milk. Without fail, after some precious snuggles, my baby girl jumps up and points at the canvas prints hanging above the couch and says “Dada!”. I ask her, “who?? who?” and she points and says over and over, “Dada! Dada!”.
I mean really, how is your heart NOT melting?! That “dada” and baby girl are my treasures- the two in the whole entire world that I cannot imagine living without. And each day, our family is changing and growing. We, husband and wife, are learning new things about each other, growing more deeply in our love for one another, and sharing new adventures. Our baby girl is transforming every day into a little girl, with new talents, abilities, and personality. Being father and mother is constantly transforming our view of life and love.
I capture the changes of the little one on my iphone literally every day, but rarely do we snag any pictures of the three of us. That is why, consecutively throughout her first year, we have had professional pictures taken of us. We believe and promote the value of capturing life’s best memories and to treasure them in images for many years to come. And that is because we value that for our own family. We enjoyed these images when our wonderful photographer delivered them to us, we enjoyed sharing them in our Christmas Card and with family and friends, but the enjoyment didn’t stop. Now we enjoy them every day hanging on our wall and our daughter gets to see the memories we made and loves, loves to see her father even though he is gone all day. And I am enjoying them again here today. 🙂
All of the above taken by Lindsay Davenport Photography, we couldn’t be more grateful for her use of her talents to bless our family.
