Watching our friends’ families grow is wonderful – and this summer there has been no shortage of babies to help us keep watch. Laura and Erik were on this list… with their second baby… a boy this time.
Baby Evan came along in mid-June and he wasn’t exactly a little guy, but oh-so-handsome. The first time I saw him, he looked like a little man sitting in a baby bouncer. A square baby jaw and a cleft in his little baby chin, there’s no doubt that he resembles his father. But only with a little less beard. ;)
And Claire – oh how she’s grown! – thinks Evan is funny and calls him Buddy. Which is quite possibly the cutest thing in the world and was witnessed several times throughout their session. I believe mom and dad enjoy this too as Laura’s eyes would meet mine and she’d repeat Claire’s words. “Hey Buddy.” Words that are sure to never be forgotten and endlessly heard for years to come. That’s what I love about growing families – their stories.
Laura’s a beautiful momma. And that smile is a perfect Laura smile.
Baby toes. Who doesn’t love baby toes. And a favorite of mine. ♥
Evan was fighting a nap. Until he laid in dad’s arms like this. And then the sleep hit hard and he snoozed away.
Funny how one position or one pair arms can just change everything in less than a minute.
Claire with her little brother. A major series of “Hey Buddy” and “Hey Brother” and cuteness galore. But of course, there’s always Mickey Mouse to turn back to when Baby Evan doesn’t talk back…
To say I love this family isn’t saying enough – we’ve been friends for years, have many memories that we’ve shared from college until now and I know that only more will be made. I just like that they keep me around and let me play with their kids and influence them with wacky animal sounds. Yeah, I love that. xoxo
