My mother-in-law gave me this Christmas quilt at my baby shower when I was pregnant with Ryan.
I love it. Every year I have dragged the boys to Sears for portraits in front of it. This is last year’s picture. We haven’t taken the historic picture yet this year because I avoid the studio and its complete choas during this time of year–early January is so peaceful! I have them framed in identical 5×7 frames that I set out during the holidays. They are my absolute favorite things to unpack when decorating for Christmas. None of the pictures are perfect portraits, but when placed together they tell a story about a family expanding, embracing and trying to sit still.
