my obsession.

I've always had a passion for photography. Seth told me a while ago he wanted to get me a nice camera so i could really take pictures. It finally happened. And i'm in love.

{Here's some practice pictures i've taken lately.}

I think she's precious when she cries.

Typical sweet little Nicci. When she gets in trouble she gives this look and it melts.your.heart.

I only have one complaint about my beautiful camera. It can't seem to capture how cute these girls really are.
It just might be... impossible.

I'm not a very good blogger i've decided. My apologies.

Many people have been asking for updates on Gracie. Let me just say, she is the definition of perfection. She and Nicci have such an incredible bond that continues to melt my heart. Now we understand why we felt so strongly to have her when we did...these girls need each other. Gracie has been having seizures daily since she was born. The doctor found out that her thyroid is present and functioning, so her Congenital Hypothyroidism could quite possibly be stemming from her brain. (This also may be connected to her seizures.) To be honest, we don't have any comforting or concrete answers yet, but over the duration of the next couple weeks she will have extensive testing and hopefully we will get some answers. In the meantime, we are just loving and enjoying having each other and such a beautiful family. There are a million pictures i need to post, but as usual i don't have the energy or the time to do that right now (Although i promise that i will soon)... But here are just a couple sweet moments captured during our wonderful lives lately...

Gracie Lyn Rasmussen- blessed on March 21, 2010

The girls were getting ready for bed and sweet Aunt Kaity brought over some cute hair accessories, and Nicci insisted on taking a picture with her sister. So tender.

This is a picture of the greatest big sister there ever was.

And SHE has surpassed cute. She's just edible.

Three generations of beautiful.

"I'm going to have to chew on the side of my binky since no one will put it in my mouth the right way..."

I'm a little bias but i think we're the cutest couple around. :)

We are so blessed. There are no words.

On a Happier Note

I get to stare at this beautiful piece of heaven every second of everyday.
