Have You Noticed for Saturday Snapshots

I needed a picture of Patrice and I for a piece I wrote this week for the Academy of Certified Nurse Midwives.  It sounds like they want to use some of what I wrote for promotional materials about midwifery.  In case you didn’t know, I love my midwife and believe strongly women should be educated about the value, safety, and benefits of midwife care.  I am praying they use my words to help do just that.  But, back to the picture.  I realized I have VERY few pictures of me with any of my girls.  I am not that fond of pictures of myself, but I don’t want to not have photos of me with my girls.  So this week we took a bunch of Patrice and I.  Here are a couple.

    Yes! We moms need to get out from behind the camera a little more often and get in some pics with our littles!

  2. Yep! I have tons of pictures of Jojo and daddy, and almost none of me and Jojo.
    Its so nice that the big girls are big enough to start helping out with the rental property, and I'm sure they had fun doing it too.

  3. Lovely photo's! I'm sure they will be treasured by you and Patrice in years to come. Oh, and you are both so pretty! 🙂

  4. Very true! It wasn't until my grandfather developed Alzheimer's that we really started to notice how few pictures we had of him. He was always the one photographing the events. Conversely, the few photos I do have of my grandpa are therefore that much more special. Still, don't put your girls in that kind of spot 50 years from now.
