I’ve been all about getting more family pictures lately – usually our pictures are just of one or two of us – and I still don’t have any of all four of us, but between this photo shoot and this one, we’re close. I secretly adore the realness and imperfections of these pictures. Sure, I wish the baby wasn’t crying – but at the same time, was she likely to do anything else with a grabby three year old holding onto her not so gently? He tried, but seriously. I do love all of MM’s goofy faces and Dan’s expression in the last one just says it all – we may be sleep deprived and occasionally weepy, but we are still… filled to the brim with love.

    You’re absolutely right. Even though you’re both sleep deprived, Dan looks like he’s totally content. And BB will have to get used to all of that love from MM sooner or later. *g*

    Forget the perfect family pictures! These are precious!!! They show personality and you’ll look back on these and just laugh!

    (Your husband’s smile is awesome! He looks tolerant and happy all at the same time).

    My favorite is the second picture…just wait until BB is older then you’ll really get some good/funny pics.
