Sunday Snapshot {family portraits}

I can now say that I'll meet my youngest child in less than a month. 

Nesting has officially kicked in.  I just feel the need to be "settled" here in our new home before we cross the ocean .  That means that I've been picking up steam in working my way through boxes during nap times.  Yesterday I hit a big box of pictures in frames that was packed before Kylie, Ian and I left our old city.  There were about 30 pictures of us in that box, roughly half of them representing the first seven years of our marriage ~ just Ian and I ~ and the other half our little family of three.

Leaving that house was less than three years ago. But those pictures are pretty outdated.  And now I find myself wondering what to do with so many pictures that don't represent us very well anymore.  Our family sure has changed in just the past 4 1/2 years...

"Sunday Snapshot is just a way to capture that special someone or something right now, because we all know time is fleeting... right now will be a distant memory before we know it!"

I can't believe Daniel is only a month away. It seems like both a very long time and a very short time! Stay calm and get unpacking and packing :)

WOW! Less than a month! That is so super exciting.

I was thinking you should make a collage of how your family has grown.
It's your story. From beginning to now...
can't wait to see where you all go from here!

I can't believe in just a short month this little boy I've prayed over for so long will finally be united with his family! I can't wait to follow your journey to bring him home and will be praying for you all as you prepare and bond together! A new family picture will quickly be in order! :-)
Blessings!

Kristi, I loved seeing the progression of your growing family in your pictures. You should put them in something to show how you all have been growing and display them! Love it! Oh, I love the pic where Daniel is checking out his new family. So exciting!
