a saturday in may

Everyone in the family got haircuts this week (except Ben, who barely has hair) because we wanted to look nice for Ben's first photo shoot. Some wonderful friends pooled their money and, as a gift, hired the same photographer who took Daniel's first (and only) professional pictures to come over and photograph Ben. (She didn't take this one, though; Steve did.)


Daniel is getting over a hacky-cough, crusty-nose cold. I'm worried he's given it to Ben — one of Ben's eyes has goop around it and sticks shut after he's been sleeping. And I hope he doesn't give it to me because I need to be healthy when I start chemo.


I also hope he didn't give his cold to Father O'Connell, who came over last night to visit. He is the priest who married us and baptized Daniel. We think the world of him, and so does Daniel, apparently — he dropped any trace of shyness and ran around all evening saying "Father O'Connell" and wanting to sit in his lap. I took pictures of that, too, but on my film camera, not the digital. (Low battery.)

Emilie,
That picture of you holding Ben is just precious! (Cute haircut BTW) Steve could be a professional photographer with shots like that.

Such a cute shot of Fr. O'C and Ben. He's definitely one of the good guys. How nice that he came to see you.

Very cute! It's nice that Steve could capture a picture like that. I would love to have some pics like that without having to pay someone to do it. You know? I can't wait to see the pics you get done. Those of Daniel were absolutely gorgeous and I know these will be as well!

Love the pictures! Ben might have a blocked tear duct-warm compresses will help. Ava had that too.

What an adorable pic of Fr. O holding Ben! I remember a similar pic of Fr. O holding Daniel, at Daniel's baptism. Fr. O had the same arm position and everything.
