I remember very clearly being pregnant with Caleb and wondering how it was going to be possible to love two kids. I knew that I would… I just couldn’t imagine it. At the time, a friend of mine told me that my love for my children wouldn’t be divided when Caleb was born because my heart would just get bigger. And it sounds so cheesy to write that down. But it’s true.
Caleb turned one on November 20th. And for that day, and the week leading up to it, and all the days that have followed since, we celebrated the life that joined our family one year ago. He has blessed our family so richly, and I can’t believe that he has only been with us for a year! He is such a sweet and laid back little man. I love how he smiles easily and likes to cuddle. And every time he learns something new, it feels like Christmas at our house! (That’s partly due to the fact that Maggie screams and jumps up and down in encouragement.)
Caleb isn’t the easiest subject to photograph, but I brought my three-year-old assistant on this shoot, and she helped me hold his attention.
On Caleb’s actual birthday, we had all of our nieces and nephews over to celebrate!
And I’ll end with this last photo of my kiddos… Caleb’s expression makes me laugh out loud!
