when you're the slow one {#OneBeautifulThing}

Sometimes it pays to be the slow one in the group.


I always get the spur-of-the-moment photos. The ones from behind are the ones I love the best because I can catch them unawares.

They're used to seeing mama with the camera around her neck now. They know it goes with me wherever I go, and they've gotten to the point in their development where I get a lot more cheesy smiles than handsome ones.

So it's better to grab them from behind.

These boys, and all of our new adventures as a family, slow and easy, laid back and tons of fun...they're my one beautiful thing this week friends. What's yours?
