a few more photos i meant to share last week but never got around to sharing (oh the things on my to-do list that never actually happen… ever.) thanks again to my sweet friend carissa for taking these. and thanks to all of you for the kind comments on this post when i shared the first few photos from carissa and also some personal thoughts on motherhood. your comments and emails meant so much. i wish i had the time to respond to them all (on that big to-do list!) so thank you.
all photos by carissa gallo.

  3. These are gorgeous. Awesome maternity and baby shots!

  4. Beautiful photos! You 2 are so gorgeous xo

  5. she is adorable.
    and you look WONDERFUL mamma!

  6. These photos are so perfect, it makes me want to take cute pictures with my twins (someday when I'll have some time, I have the same huge to-do list as you). Your post on motherhood was very inspiring. I started following your blog because you are LDS just like I am, and I feel very close to the way you feel. Now that I have my two little boys, and now that I have felt what being a mother is, I just don't want to stop having babies :)
    You are a great source of inspiration for me.
    Thanks

    Okay, I admit it.
    On days when I didn't have anything planned, I scrolled back to the beginning of your blog. I read EVERY post. Every.single.post.

    Sidenote: After each reading session, I felt like eating pizza.

    Back to the point: I couldn't refrain myself from commenting now, because I think Eleanor's feet on the third picture (with the milkshake) are too adorable and I want to eat them.

  45. oh my, she's just a little piece of perfection! gorgeous photos.

  46. Beautifu pictures :) You guys are a cute little family ! :)
