The very first family photo

25 July 2009, originally uploaded by mnssams.

This is the first time we've gotten a family photo taken. There was on taken back in April, right after Naomi was born. But there were others in it, and I'd be crazy to post that nonsense. I looked I'd had a baby the week before. :) Not so great.

Matt's going away for a month, to staff a discipleship training school (we'll see him at least every weekend, if not more often as it's only an hour away). I wanted to make sure he had an updated family photo. Of course, if I'd thought about this for a second, I'd have held Joshua's picture or teddy bear. But I was more interested in getting the four of us together.

I was shocked how much we all look a like in this picture. :)

Oceana's 3 years and 3 months. Naomi is 15 weeks old.

  1. beautiful! I happen to think Naomi is the spitting image of your mother-in-law, based on the pics of her that you have posted!

  3. What a great family foto! It can be a challenge to get everyone looking good when you've got little ones involved.

    I like Matt with hair. Handsome devil, isn't he? ;)

    Family photos are priceless treasures.

    I missed you while out of the loop... no computer on vacation. I will get caught up soon.
    I just love your photos.
