oh my goodness, i cannot believe that these photos were taken only a year ago!
hanging out in the backyard, in the peaceful countryside, soybean fields + purple flowers.
asher - just a year old, romping around in his cloth diaper, little peachy-pie hair curling in the wind,
roman - four, flying paper airplanes and always running commentary in his own little imaginative world...
we have moved two times since then. to our little cabin house in town and now to our condo in colorado. it is just crazy to think what all can happen in a year. and yet, everything feels comfortably still the same. although they look a little younger + chubbier, the faces and personalities you see here, are just the same as the ones i am loving on today.
asher, tearing about, arms always flailed out to the side, stopping here and there to notice nature's treasures.
and roman, leaving behind a fury of tape + paper, his mind spinning with thoughts and ideas.
so here we are, another summer passing by, only to become another sweet long ago memory. i can already feel fall in the air, and slowly but surely we will need to start hunkering down at home, busing ourselves with schoolwork and jobs, kindergarten at home for rome, and the never ending task of trying to entertain asher while he is climbing all over us reminding us to slow down
because babies indeed do not keep. ;)
p.s. thank you to those who left comments on my breastfeeding post. breastfeeding is something that i am so passionate about and i absolutely loved hearing the different takes on what breastfeeding has meant for you and your little lovely ones!
