Our sister/bro-inlaw/niece family is awesome! It has been beautiful watching them become parents to adorable Tia. I love my mama-dates with Alyssa during the week– talking about sleep (or lack of) and simple living and families — while we both nurse our daughters….I am so blessed. We had a perfect-weathered Saturday morning to all hang out, catch up with life, and grab some updated photos of the group!IMG_1451

Oh these cousins. Ethan cuddles these baby girls and it’s just out of control adorable.

Then I had the brilliant idea for them to hold hands…..the process was long and somewhat dangerous but it actually worked pretty well! (i’m sure in a few months this will be much easier :–)

In celebration of Tia turning 6 months old, I grabbed some photos of this beautiful family. It has been such a joy watching them navigate parenthood, raising their daughter, and be so supportive of our crazy family!

And at the end of our morning, Luke grabbed some fabulous family photos for us too! IMG_1591 IMG_1597 IMG_1606 IMG_1614 IMG_1621 IMG_1624 IMG_1631
