merrill and I come from some pretty tight-knit families. well, our moms’ sides at least. both of our moms come from big families (my mom is one of 7 merrill’s mom is one of 9), and we still see the majority of all of those cousins.
it gets kind of confusing when you refer to someone as your “cousin-in-law”. so we just call each other “cousin”.
so this is my cousin (merrill’s cousin), and her baby.
beautiful story of a couple who tries and tries and tries for a baby, and 9 years later, when they have basically given up, are surprised.
he is such a wonderful surprise!
such a sweetie… I loved how happy he was, his many expressions, and his silly little tongue!
so happy I got to see you carrie and take shots of this sweetie!
