A Picture Each Sunday....

A Picture Each Sunday....

This past week I decided that I needed to start a new tradition with my little ones. They are growing and are soon not going to be so little. When I think back on how little they actually once were, it makes this mamas heart clench a bit. My sweet little babies have grown and are now 10 and almost 8. Gaw! How did that happen so quickly? I remember my Mom telling me that those baby years go by in a blink of an eye. I don't think I truly understood what she meant till recently. Over the holidays, as I prepared to make some calenders as gifts for my Grandma and parents, I was overwhelmed with the realization that my red headed babies were no longer little. They have grow up in what feels like over night. As I searched for pictures to include in the calenders and I wiped a few of my Mama tears, I realized that I actually did not have many nice pictures of my kids solo or together. Sure I had those candid moments and tons of all those funny silly faces, which I absolutely love, but sometimes I want a simple, facing forward with a smile kind of picture..ya know? As all of us Mamas know, this can be quite a feat with little munchkins, no matter how old they may be. Because of this, I decided to try something different this year. I got the idea from Stephanie, who has been taking a picture of her family every Sunday. I loved this idea and thought how great it would be to have those pictures at the end of the year to look back on and see how much our family has changed and grown.

I am very excited for this new photo challenge I am giving myself. I want to capture our Sundays, no matter how crazy they may be. I know that I will not always get those "perfect" pictures I am hoping for, but I know that I will make memories with my little ones, as I snap away.

This past Sunday I took our first round of Sunday Pictures. Oh how I love these little munchkins that God has entrusted me with. They truly make this Mams heart so very happy. Throughout the year I will be using the #apictureeachsunday. Feel free to join in with me, as we document our lives.
