Like putting together Aberdeen's room, having family pictures taken was one of those "normal" things that I really clung to while I was pregnant. Though it took 11 months to finally get them done, I treasure them greatly. The day was a little on the hot and humid side, so after being in the backyard for a little while, Aberdeen let us know that it was time to move things indoors. It wasnt what I'd planned, but since very few things since her birth have gone according to my plan, we followed her lead. I'm so glad we did. These photographs perfectly capture how I've felt about the last year and are everything I could have hoped for.
