Celebrating 8 years of marriage!!

Today Moises and I are celebrating 8 years of marriage! Happy Anniversary to us!! :) It has been a wonderful 8 years, it truly has, & I am so blessed to have such a loving, selfless, considerate & affectionate husband. I love him completely, & it has been my joy to respect, love, and honor him thus far & to be called his wife.

Here are a few of our wedding photos! (They are scanned from our wedding album.) Ahhh the memories that run through my mind as I look at them... :)

And here's the most recent photo of us, taken in December (I was 5 months pregnant). Oh how much we've changed in 8 years! :)

A baby session!

Over the weekend I had the wonderful opportunity of photographing Daniel who is just a little over 2 months old. He is soooo cute! He was so tired & would doze off for 5 minutes here and there but mostly just wanted to stay awake to entertain me! :) hehe :)

I love it how babies look at their mommies :)

Wide-eyed, exploring the world around him.

I love how his arm hangs in this one- he was definitely out! :)

32 Weeks

"Before you were conceived, I wanted you
Before you were born, I loved you
Before you were here an hour, I would die for you
This is the miracle of Mother's Love."

The curls came off!

I finally got the courage to take my baby boy to get all his curls cut off :( He sure didn't want to go! He kept fussing & saying "I don't want to get my hair cut!" but to be honest I was tired of styling it, both his and Aricin's hair. Their hair is curly so before going anywhere I always had to re-wet it, put mousse in it, fluff it around.. ugh. Plus I have to do my hair too! Well, I said enough is enough.. I have 2 boys, not 2 girls! lol :) Still, when I saw all the curls falling to the floor he looked so much like a big boy to me.. it was such a bittersweet feeling. Those of you with curly-headed little boys can probably relate, right? ;)
Aricin has had his curls all cut off before but I always just let them grow back a bit because he doesn't like to go get a haircut either. "It makes me all itchy!", is what his complaint is :)

At this point, you're probably thinking, Where in the world did you take them?? :) Aricin found it amusing. He looked around and said, "Why are there so many cowboy stuff in here?" ;)

Here is before & after. He was happy to be home! :)
