It was an event over a year in the making. A time of firsts and introductions and gathering together as a family. The beginning of a new era, three cousins born within 9 weeks and bound to be friends and brothers for life. We had eagerly waited and anticipated for this day.
I was the first to announce my pregnancy, something I had kept secret for months, waiting for the perfect moment to spill the beans. Our families celebrated and rejoiced with the news and a few short weeks later found ourselves beaming with joy again to hear that another baby would be added to the family, due within weeks of ours. I was elated to be pregnant at the same time as my sister! Little did we know that God was planning for an additional baby to be added…three sisters…three boys…in less than three months.
Both of my big sisters (plus the rest of my family) arrived in Kansas City for the 4th of July and it was our first time to have everyone together since the babies were born. Something I’ll always remember and cherish! This month was full of family time and so my camera card was full too, documenting all of the moments and memories. I love that Max’s 7th month video and pictures are filled with cousins and grandparents and aunts and uncles…people that love him and will always be there for him. You can watch his monthly video here:
A few snapshots of our time with family over the last month:
I had so many pictures this month with all of our family, but I wanted to include some of just Max to show his growth over the months. He’s becoming more and more mobile, army crawling around the house and getting into anything he can find. He said “mama” this month, a gift to my heart as he’s always been a daddy’s boy. I watched my mom and brother’s relationship over the years and I’m starting to experience the special mother-son bond. Nothing like it!
