kariotto22 Adam and Asher are stampeding through the house completely naked, bawling their eyes out that we don't have fruit snacks. Aurora is lying in the middle of the living room floor, and I'm getting fish sticks in the oven (I'm so fancy). This is our crazy, messy life and I kinda want to cry...but I'm in the pantry eating gummy candy orange slices and scrolling through pictures of my happy kids...sooooo, onward and upward! # 2d

kariotto22 Today Adam woke up and ran downstairs squealing, "It's morning now?! It's a new day! I love new things! I love new toys. I love new food. I love new everything. I love all the things!" And I love YOU, Adam Orion. You light up my life. 4d

kariotto22 Dear 2 1/2 Year Old Asher,
Look at you. You still have the sweetest baby face (and that trademark stink face) that makes everyone swoon. You are talking so much, and your raspy voice makes everything you say sound hilarious and adorable. Some of your favorite books are Good Night Gorilla, A Good Day, I'm a Dirty Dinosaur, all our That's Not My books, and anything by Leslie Patricelli. Your favorite color is orange. You love to sing, especially "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star." You are our crafty little fox...crafty in that you love art projects like coloring, paint, and playdough and crafty because you are a sneaky little stinker! You are seriously so mischievous! In matter of seconds, you can manage to color on the walls, dump out boxes of cereal, take off your soiled diaper, pester Adam, climb up my body, wake up Aurora, and then just stand there with a little smirk and say, "I not sorry." To say you are exhausting would be an understatement! But I could put all my energy into loving you everyday...and I do and I will! I love you, my sweet boy.

Congratulations on your 4th baby boy...please tell me there's plans for a boy band in their future. 3.) Sorry my creepy claw hand ruined this picture. 6d

kariotto22 "Let's go around back and take pictures by the willow tree," the bride summoned. Dragonflies and dandelion seeds whispered through the air. I couldn't stop staring at her. She was the epitome of a bride: so in love, so happy, and simply glowing. I burst into tears when I first saw her, and I just couldn't stop smiling and telling her how beautiful she looked.
Life is pretty amazing, isn't? One day, you're just sitting there with your Lisa Frank notebook playing M.A.S.H. with your favorite friend in the 4th grade, and then years later, life can feel completely different yet simultaneously exactly the same...and then you're standing next to that same girl watching her live out her fairytale. Yesterday was seriously magical.
Congratulations, Emily and Billy! You two are perfect for each other. Thank you for letting me be a part of your beautiful wedding day!
