There's Gonna Be a Birthday!

The other day while my son was talking to someone a bit away from the children, I whispered to Matilda that I wanted to take a photo of she and Sebastian because their daddy's birthday is going to be in December.  I want to frame one of these photos  for him.

These first two photos are the result.  She smiled in such a precious way, then threw her arm around her little brother.  It so touched my heart. 

Usually they are running around and playing.  It's hard to get a photo of both of them together but thanks to Matilda, I got two great ones.  Then I noticed she was sitting with her legs crossed just like she did when she was about two years old - she'll be 5 in February. 

I remember that I wrote a blog about her crossed legs and feet when they lived in Colorado. 

 Sebastian never lets his dad out of his sight.  He's there with him walking, running, kicking the ball or watching a DVD.  Looks just like his dad when he was that age.

I am thrilled when I get these unposed shots.  Sebastian was watching a movie, but still holding on to his dad.  So sweet.

Unconditional love - it's THE best!

Really wonderful pictures Barbara. I never noticed before, but in the two close-ups I really see a lot of you in those little faces.

Wonderful of you to say Shannon! Sebastian has the "Schmidt" nose, which was my maiden name - that little button nose - so cute.

Matilda looks just like my photos at that age. She also looks like Jennifer, my daughter who passed. AND she has my daughter Julie's personality. She is a very sweet, determined and protective little girl.

I'm so blessed.
