Easter Pictures

Sometimes when I get in a funk, I fall back on pictures of my kids to say the things that are heavy on my heart but somehow won't come to me through words. There's something about staring at the adorable cuteness of your kids on your computer screen long after they are peacefully sleeping for the night that restores your sense of purpose and love for life.

Well, this week I've been struggling a bit to find my footing, so I might have gone definitely went overboard on taking pictures of this kids for Easter. (no comment from the hubs here, please)

Anyway, I left the other 300 in a file on my desktop and decided to share my favorites with you here. (I promise to give my trigger happy camera fingers a rest for a while and feel free to roll your eyes at me for being one of "those moms"-whatever that may mean)

Have a very blessed and happy Easter!

(yes, as I confessed on facebook, as I pretended to go completely insane, they smiled more and more. Apparently "crazy mommy" is much more hilarious than "cheesy mommy". go figure.)
(If you're wondering why she always looks like she has a touch of dried yogurt in her hair it's because she is now responsible to feed it to herself each morning. And yes, a good bit of it ends up in her hair.)

(for now...crazy mommy can come back at ANY time...unfortunately)

  17. I seriously LOVE how happy your little lady is ALL THE TIME. Her pictures are the best. Anyone who is having a bad day should look at Addison and see how the whole world can be a wonderful place. . .especially in the eyes of an adorable little girl. Never apologize for taking pictures. There is no such thing as too many pictures :)

    Our little guy was born on 4/2/12 with a very rare chromosome anomaly (a deletion on the 4th chromosome). Your pregnancy and diagnosis sounded very, very similar to the emotions we experience that I started following your page. While our little ones have different chromosomes anomalies they are the same in how much joy they bring to everyone's life. Thank you. If you ever have a spare moment feel free to check out our blog as well.

  19. Addison has much more expressions than Carter. do you think it is because of her age or do you think it is because she is DS? I was wondering if ds children have more happy expressions.
