okay so i’m being bias. well, because its my blog … i think i can be. my neice and nephew are adorable. like totally adorable. i love babies and toddlers but nothing beats having a neice and a nephew that you can just send back to their parents when you need a break. everyone asks matthew and i after three and a half years of marriage when we’re going to have one and we always answer with, “we have morgan and irelyn and love spending time with them and then sending them back to lucas and tara.” or our answer is. “we’re practicing with zoey,” which might i add is an adorable baby too 😉
we are thoroughly enjoying these first 4 years of marriage together … spending so much time together, taking random trips, and just living life. we love it … but nothing beats spending some time with these two kids. i love them. with all my heart i absolutely love them. like i said … i love kids but its so different when your sibling has a child … you almost feel as though its your own. especially for me with these two. my sister tara and i are best friends … bff’s. we do everything together, talk everyday … and rely on eachother so much … its sick actually. but i love it. i couldn’t ask for a better sister and friend. so i often times get to pick a child when i’m with her … seriously. if we go out to eat she usually asks which one i want for the day and we handle that child. as of now … i usually pick irelyn because she is pretty easy going and well … morgan is in his terrible twos. so i would say i’m quite the ‘mom’ when i’m with tara … like i said … i feel as though they are my own sometimes.
we always joke with tara that the few things she’s good at is 1. bowling 2. hair and 3. making babies. tara grew up not being that athletic but after delivering these beautiful babies … we have found her calling. i’m thinking she might just carry mine … (totally joking … but it has crossed my mind! haha)
during the winter months … i sometimes find myself getting bored and needing to get out of the house and snap some pictures … so of course we call on tara and the kids. we snapped a few inside my dad and step mom’s house that has amazing natural lighting and i actually ended up getting some great ones of morgan and needing to get a few more of the birthday girl, irelyn … maybe next week. karol (my stepmom) has some amazing vintage pieces in her house so we had some fun playing with the kiddos.
*** notice irelyn is quite the DIVA. she seriously knows how to work an iphone … lucas and tara are in bigggg trouble when it comes to this princess. 😉
