When Wren was a couple of weeks old we tried to assemble ourselves in nicer clothes, I threw on some makeup and curled my hair, and we attempted a few family photos by just propping my camera on windowsills and dressers and setting the timer. Typically family pictures result in some frustration and tears from a few kiddos, but this time it was relatively quick and surprisingly smooth. I mean, it wasn’t entirely tear-free:
But as long as Brandon randomly yelled out “snozzcumbers!” and “bellypoppers!” from the BFG book (the kid’s favorite lately), we got some good laughs and smiles. These children all love Wren so much and all want to hold her so that helped, too. Philippa and Noah wanted to take some photos with their “phones,” making clicking sound effects as they did.
Tired, puffy (me), and wrinkled though we were, I’m thankful we grabbed a few pictures to remember these early days with our March girl, these early days of becoming a family of six. Already she has grown and changed so much!
