Fall Family Fotos

We had family photos done again.

This time with my Momma as she was in town for Thanksgiving.

I love the last family photos we had done but I know I am not happy in them.

In fact, I had been crying pretty heavily right before that shoot.

The last 9 months, and who can believe it has been 9 months, have been a rollercoaster of emotions I couldn't have ever imagined.

It has gotten so much better. As you can tell by our Wordless Wednesday photo yesterday "The Silly" has returned to both Yvan and me. Ade is mastering the silly as well and fits right in with us.

To be sure there are still hard days.

Being a parent is a bigger job than I ever anticipated. It opens a whole new can of worry, guilt, anticipation, love, work, dishes and laundry then one can put in words.

This time I cry when I look at these new photos because I have fallen more in love with my husband because of his strength and love over the last 4 years.

My heart literally swells with love, happiness and pride when I look at Ade.

I love the family we are becoming.

What a difference a few months makes.

Here are some of my favourites!

These photos are courtesy our fantastic friend Randeem at Randeem Andre Photography

Thanks Randeem for making it so much fun!

Absolutely wonderful pictures - you can see the love!

It's amazing how long the journey to truly become a family takes... it's so much longer than the adoption process (and here we thought we were done!! lol)

My best to you guys!!! Wonderful pics!
