Something to be thankful for

This post is totally random, but totally necessary.

Today, I finally began the process of sending baby pictures of Henry to Costco for printing.  No biggie.  It's just almost six years later.  :/
Anyhow.  After I chose the first batch, I couldn't help but keep looking at the thousands of pictures we took of our first child.  How can you not?  How in the world is my first baby almost SIX?  When did he lose all that chub-a-dub?  Why in the world did we take so many pictures of him doing the same thing?
How did I get so lucky that he was surrounded by little boys who would be his bestest friends from birth?  I love coming across old pictures of Henry and his buds when they were but mere babes.  They had such love even then!  Also much fighting and crying over toys, but I can hardly remember that.  *cough*
You know who else they all loved to pieces?  Aunt Becky.  No exaggeration, all our kids have always loved Becky.  Like, in a they all flock to her when she's around kind of way.  I saw these pictures and had to post them, 'cause I think it's obvious why they do.  Look at how she loves those boys!  Look how much they love her! (and her fruit!)  Nate is curiously missing, but we were at his house, so I know he is there. :)

Cute, eh?  (<---that's for you, Jenna!)  Also, fun to remember that there were 3 babies cooking in their respective ovens, getting ready to join the crew.  I love looking back at my glowing, precious friend, with her firstborn in her belly, lovin' on all our boys.  Little did she know that 5 years later, I'd be looking at these pics with tears in my eyes!

Love you, Becks!

Who doesn't love Aunt Becky! She does have a way with them. For some reason the pictures are not working yet. I can't wait to see them! I love our kidlins and their mommies!

Sweet comment big sister Sarah and Stephanie's sweet blog. This Mama and Nina is so blessed to get to see the blessing of these precious little ones in our life and get to watch them grow. Love my little Beckita. Thank you so much for the sharing of these pictures that give us a full heart and tears of thanksgiving.

Awww...I just LOVE these pictures! My, oh my how those boys have grown!

I've always loved and appreciated how close you ladies and your respective families are. And, now that I get ready to enter motherhood, I pray that my close girlfriends will share that same special bond. :)

Oh goodness! Yup...I'm crying..are you surprised? Nope. Thank you for such a sweet and touching post. You know I love those boys and feel so blessed to be their auntie. What fun memories and what special ones to come. Can't wait!

PS...I love Henry's face in the first one when he realized there is some fruit being given out. Wow! They're all so tiny!

How can a mother express her thankful heart for the day you entered my daughters hearts and mine. It is a mothers daily prayer for a friend like you. When I think of you I just smile in my heart and thank God. I just love you so much. God is blessing the next little generation with this friendship that can only come from heaven. I just had to tell you my sweet Stephanie what my heart was feeling . I don't always leave a comment twice but I just had to (: (:
