embrace the camera: dec. 15th


embrace the camera.
it's about documenting memories within your family.
looking back, don't you want to be a part of your families memories?  regardless of what you look like, or how you're feeling.  they won't care about that.  they will only care that you are actually in photos.  once you're gone, what will your family have to remember you by?
we are embracing with olive this week.
i want to remember these sweet moments.
those squishy cheeks, kissable lips, snuggle time, the squeaky noises she makes, late night breastfeeding (when i know i need to be sleeping, but rocking her is just too precious)...i want to remember these first, precious moments we have with her...our daughter, that we never expected to have.
 {i could just eat her}

2. link up your POST, not your blog.
3. link back to our blog by a text link or using our button IN YOUR POST.
4. and lastly, have fun and visit each other!

  6. This picture of you and Ms. O is sooo sweet. Congrats again, Emily! Not sure if you're the type to share this sort of thing, but I'd be very interested to hear your birth story. Ya know, when you get time to type it out with all six littles in the house, Christmas a week and a half away, and the other demands of daily life. Ha!
