Essence of Now (April 27, 2012)

I’m starting a new series on my blog, called the Essence of Now. These will be periodic photo posts that capture what’s going on in our lives in a way that particularly resonates with me. I hope you enjoy them.

The baby is finally sleeping again. Not as long as I’d like. But enough that I’m feeling more like myself.

After dressing himself (yes, that shirt is on backwards), the boy apparently thought he’d take his show on the road. Solo.

Watching them learn to love each other is a beautiful gift.


What’s going on with your family?

    I love the idea of this. I need to capture more of our every day moments too.

    Oh, that last one is just precious.
    Good job for letting your little man keep his shirt on backwards! It’s hard to let them do things all by themselves sometimes.

    Great photos.

    I am hoping for the sleeping kids in our family this weekend. I think they are allergic to sleep.

    Pictures do paint a thousand words. Thanks for the reminder that we should just live in the moment. Life becomes less stressful that way :)
