“Who needs superheros, when you have a brother.” -Anonymous
As busy has life has been with two kids, working during the week, and shooting on the weekends, I’ve made it a point to take monthly photos of Ronan the same way I did for Jude. I can’t believe how quickly the little nugget filled out. He came home 6 lbs, 7 oz. and quickly made his way to 14 lbs. While he’s not exactly sleeping through the night yet, at least he gives me 4 hours of blissful peace right after I put him down. Then this hungry hippo goes back to 2-3 hour feedings. Life of a newborn is so exhausting!
Last weekend, I shot these photos of the boys together. I can’t imagine what life will be like when they start running circles around each other, but I imagine it’s going to be pure joy for these two. Just looking at the way Ronan already stares up at his brother and without prompting from us, Jude wants to teach his brother how to play with his most prized possession gives me all the feels to make my heart melt. When I designed Ronan’s nursery, I wanted it to be a place that Jude felt welcomed and could easily occupy himself. Fast forward a few months into having added our new addition and the new room has served its purpose. While one is laying down or sleeping, the other is up and playing.
May you two little crazy boys grow up to love each other, make up after fights, and share have each others back forever and ever!
