My parents came out to visit and help shortly after I had the twinlets.  They were here for about a week and we had a wonderful time even with the chaos of two very demanding little boys.  I think I was in the stage of acceptance at this point, accepting that I could no longer make it from my upstairs to downstairs with both boys ready in less than an hour, let alone out of the house. However, if you know me at all, you know that given that boundary, I have to break it…or at least see how far I can push it! These were taken 17 days after the twinlets were born!

Just a couple days before my parents left we ran out to do a quick mini shoot of them and their first grandchild. He has touched their lives in so many ways as he has mine, leaving us forever altered. I love these photos for so many reasons, but mostly because you can just see the personalities so clearly of some of my favorite people.  I couldn’t post them until now because of course I had to use a photo as a Christmas gift. Now that it’s been shared with them, I can share with you.

Mom and Jim, I love you all dearly! Enjoy!
