Collen's Easter Photos

We had Collen's Easter photos done a few weeks ago by our friend Lauren. She is a talented photographer and a great, great friend. Lauren did some photos of Ayden when he was 4 weeks old, and she also took pictures for us at his memorial service. She is a very close friend, and she was and has been such a comfort and reassuring voice through losing Ayden, the grief, and welcoming Collen into our lives. It's such a blessing to have such friends in your life...and we've been blessed with a lot of them!

I think the Easter photos turned out beautifully! We decided to do them in Ayden's garden at our church's playground. It's a place where we as a family feel more complete, and it's somewhere we want Collen to connect with his brother.

Take a look! I couldn't include them all, but these are some of my favorites. I can't believe how big he's getting! The little stinker is trying to pull up these days.....and he learned how to dance today. :) Never a dull moment, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
