Confession: I never delete the pictures off of my iphone. Therefore: I have A LOT of pictures on my phone.
Every once in a while (often), I scroll through them...It's like taking a walk down memory lane. I'll try not to bore you, but today you get to walk with me. I really could almost cry looking through these, so much has happened in the last two years.
This is us newly married and newly puppied. Max was probably only a few months old here. I'm sure he misses these days when we actually paid attention to him.
This is from our trip to Chicago (which I don't think I ever blogged about). This was about 2 months before I got pregnant with Laney. Oh the days when you could just skip off to Chicago for a few days.
A bald Campbell, who was just learning to walk. It's hard to remember her being that little (tear). Baby Jack's high school graduation.
Buddy running his marathon. He was so proud and so tired. That's a huge accomplishment, I could never and would never want to do that. :) He's so cute.
Laney's first picture. Look at that little peanut! Also, this is how we broke the news to Max. Tortured him by putting him in a shirt and said, "Congratulations, buddy! Your life is about to completely change!"
Awe...the day we found out we were having a girl. I was totally shocked and cried as I was laying on the ultrasound table.
The Nashville floods. Breaks my heart. I don't know how well you can see it in these pictures, but the highway that runs by our house was completely flooded. That wasn't even the worst of it, there were streams like rivers running down people's streets. Nashville is still in the process of recovering 9 months later.
Two completely unrelated things: 1- I just think this picture of Eric is funny. It's from our birthing class. 2- Emily got engaged! 3.26.11. Looking forward to the big day!
Ok, I feel really vulnerable sharing this picture with you all. This was the night before I went into labor with Laney. It was REALLY hot outside, and I was ready to have that baby! So Eric and I decided to go for a walk (like a power walking kind of walk) at the park. I couldn't find anything to wear (because I was SO HUGE!). So, I took this picture and sent it to my mom so she could tell me that I looked fine. She did because she's nice like that and she loves me. It's funny because the very next picture in my phone is this one...
Boom! There she is! The miracle of life. It's amazing, isn't it!? God is so good to allow us to experience this. I was just thinking about this yesterday at church. We were singing the David Crowder song, "How He Loves Us." Having Laney has completely changed my perspective when I sing that song. All I could picture was Laney's little smiling face and how much it delighted me, and how much more our Father loves us and delights in us. Ugh. Amazing.
The many faces of Laney-girl. She now dominates the photos on my phone. I love snapping pictures of that cute little face. She's growing so fast. I can hardly believe it (did you catch the shirtless daddy in there? He might kill me for that :)).
Well, happy Monday! I hope this has been as fun for you as it has for me. :)
