Pregnancy Glow

I had the priviledge this weekend of spending some time with Brad and Jessica who are expecting their first baby in October!

After attending Sandy Puc's Bellies and Babies class, I asked them if they would be interested in some maternity photos...I was so afraid they would think I was crazy and say, 'NO', but to my surprise they eagerly said, 'YES' and were so excited! They totally trusted me and went with my crazy thoughts and I can't help but think ;0) ... that what we captured was AWESOME! I so wish I had these kinds of photos when we were expecting our own children!

Brad and Jessica are going to be the best parents! They are both glowing already!!

I am so anxious to meet their new little bundle of joy!

Could Not Possibly be Any Prouder ....

How Did I possibly have a child with legs this long???  ;0)

I love the emotion in this one..... it takes Dalton a few minutes to cool down to take in the race!

Proud Sibilings!

Trying to find shade before the race!

I do not know how Emma talked P-Pa into doing this!  It was soooooo HOT!!

And they are OFF!
Go Dalton Go!

This almost looked like a smile of accomplishment to me!
It was an uphill finish so he was looking 'up' to the finish line!

Dalton's first race fell on Poppy's Birthday!  Poppy was so proud! He said it was an awesome Birthday Present!

Here He Comes!

Super Fast Cousins!

Has it really been 7 years?

I have come to my blog twice today to upload new pictures from the last few days, but it just didn't seem right.....

Has it really be 7 years?  I remember exactly where I was standing at the office, what I was doing when I saw everything unfold LIVE on The Today Show.  

Just so hard to believe that it actually happened.  

I can still see the images from pictures and news stories just like it was earlier today and it happened even before Emma was born!

I thought this poem I ran across was very fitting:

Mother Teresa's Anyway Poem

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

[Reportedly inscribed on the wall of Mother Teresa's children's home in Calcutta, and attributed to her. However, an article in the New York Times has since reported (March 8, 2002) that the original version of this poem was written by Kent M. Keith.]
