I watched them be who they are.......

which is amazing....
beautiful.....
babies.........






they don't care what i do.....

they don't care that i have acne* like a teenager......

they don't care what i'm wearing....

they had no cares.......






these babies love their momma......

they love life....

they love having fun.....

they love loving......

they love summer.....




I sat back and just watched for once.....

and you know what.....it was amazing.


*acne caused by high levels of humidity....

So sweet of a post. I have tried to sit back and watch my kids, but it just doesn't work for me. They always start fighting and well...it ruins it for me. Don't your kids fight every 60 seconds for crying out loud?

Alicia said...

What a gathering of cuties cavorting!!! The fourth image just melted my big ole heart to a silly puddle of rainbows. The ultimate cutie!!!!!

Chantal said...

Beautiful children. Lovely pics. Hope you aches go away (humidity) and the dry air comes back soon. You may want to try cold compress on the area were it hurts. 10 minutes a few times a day. It helps to releive pain.

Kristin said...

Happy, beautiful, gentle and lovely! Beautiful children you have and might I say a wonderful hand a photographing moments that are beautiful in every way.

Jackie said...

Beautiful! I love watching my kids with each other when they don't know I'm watching...they have such sweet relationships with one another (when they're not fighting!), especially my daughter and youngest son - they just crack me up, the games they make up together!

Laura said...

I try to "catch my kids" in this sort of place, every day. Just for a moment.

And I use proactiv.

Bay said...

Precious! And great photos lovely as always.

Sarah said...

Isn't it wonderful! I Love when I can take ME out of the picture and experience THEM!
By the way, I am also an acne sufferer from the humidity! Glad to know I am not alone!

Lisa T. Howard said...

Beautiful pics of beautiful moments! :)

Leah C said...

One of my favorite things to do...watching my children "just be"! Makes everything okay again:)
Love the photos of your babies...they look sooo happy!

Zoë Moët said...

They're so cute together! Adorable!

Brenna LaPray said...

Oh my, they are so adorable. They all look so much alike. I'm guessing that they take after their beautiful mom, acne and all! I too just love to watch my children, but lately the smiles have turned to teasing and fighting. So, what's your secret?

Julie said...

I love those moments where everyone is getting along and you can just feel the love. :) They're rare in my house. And that unconditional love they have for their momma is the best thing ever.

precious precious precious.

The Hills said...

This is the sweetest post I've read in a while! I totally agree. It's those little moments, when you let yourself take a step back, that make it all so worth it.

(Their smiles are priceless!!)

Windex. Have you ever seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding?

Anne Marie said...

that was so sweet.....

Jenn @ youknow... that blog? said...

It's good to sit and appreciate the beauty of our children from time to time, rather than just letting it all go by and taking it for granted. Love the pictures :)

I'm blog hopping - will be carrying on via someone else's comment left on your blog! Got to you via a comment left on "French Charming".

You're invited to stop by my blog any time :)
