Light and Loveliness

Reflections of Emily Sue Allen

Family / Motherhood

It’s a…..

Perfectly formed, magnificently created, dearly loved boy that will be joining our family in February 2016. The whole crew is excited, even the reserved one in the photo, who is only reserved because his balloon popped moments before I clicked. In reality, he’s just as psyched as the other brother who had himself a little victory dance around the yard. Girls no longer out-number the boys!

In other news, and not to be overshadowed: someone lost their first tooth last night and is rather excited about it.
