new buddies and cake...

In less than an hour my sweet Annie Rice will be 1 years old! To celebrate the occasion, we did a little cake smash[and party-more on that tomorrow]...BUT this wasn’t just any cake smash. It was a VERY SPECIAL one because Liz and Todd’s son Charlie turns 1 at the end of July, so we did them together:) This is probably the most memorable and special photo shoot that I have ever done...It was special in the fact that I NEVER imagined we would have 1 year olds together. Todd and Liz got Charlie when he was just a few days old and I always imagined that our children would be more apart in age than they are because of how long we had to wait...It makes me so happy every time I look at these pictures! We joke that the wedding invites are already being designed:) The part that gets my heart every time is the simple truth that the Lord heard both of our prayers...”For these children, we have prayed...” Such a special time!




















 We had to clean them somehow...so we put them in the pineapple fountain:) Not sure if that's really allowed but at least for us, that night it was:)

Pictures are amazing. I can actually feel your heart bursting at the seams with joy and pride right through this post. Ask any adoptive momma - when you watch someone else's glorious "God" story unfold - it makes you relive your own all over again. Such a happy time. You are making beautiful memories with sweet Annie Rice. The expression where she wrinkles her forehead is priceless. She's beautiful and perfect in every way!! So happy for you across the miles and the internet. :-)
