Adalynn and Devin

I already posted Lyla's photos from our session in Utah. Here are the rest. The day we had them taken Lyla woke up with a fever. Of course. Of all the days for her to wake up not feeling well. And she was very grouchy the entire time. I actually could not even be in the room because she would look at me and start sobbing--so all month I had no idea if we even got any decent ones of Lyla. But you really wouldn't know it looking at the pictures--there were a lot of cute ones, so I am really happy about that.

Devin was so good. He is so much better at getting his picture taken--he really took about 5 minutes and he was done. Awesome.

I had to leave the room with Adalynn too because she kept looking at us instead of the photographer. Lately Addie is all about the forced, unnatural smile, so again, I was pleased with what she got.

 For months, Devin has been telling me we need a new family picture and he was really excited to get one with Lyla in it.
 And one of all the kids. I wish Lyla was smiling, but hey, she isn't crying.

Lyla is one!

One year old today. And yes, it went by way too fast.

I love this little girl. With all my heart. It really is amazing how quickly you fall in love with your children and how you can't imagine your life without them. It is times like today I wish I was a better writer--because I never seem to be able to express how I feel.

When I was pregnant with Lyla I was pretty sick. And I gained 50 pounds. And one time I peed my pants while I was throwing up. And then once she was here, there was all the stuff that comes with a newborn--nursing, waking up every three hours, months without a full nights sleep, etc. She was totally worth it--I would do it all again in a second.

She has been SUCH a blessing and joy. We all adore her. The past year has been one of the happiest because of her. I'm excited to see her grow up and love that I am her mom.

And now some pictures of our little lady. We are so lucky!
