Photos & Video by Kavin Lindgren
There were a lot of really great things about this year….but the greatest gift was the arrival of our baby boy, Cru. In the weeks leading up to my delivery, my friend Kavin shot some footage of our family of three. It was such a strange and special time for me…knowing that in just a few weeks we would be adding another member to our family and life as we knew it would no longer be the same. I found myself really cherishing those last few weeks with Rylee. Soaking in her smile, her sweet spirit and her funny little voice. Feeling so grateful for the three full years I had with her as my only child. When Cru finally decided to make his entrance into the world, we all fell deeply in love. Watching Rylee and the way she loved him was more than a heart could handle. I knew right away what a great big sister she would become. A week after we brought Cru home from the hospital, Kavin was able to come over and capture our new family of four….and Cru at his tiniest. He put together this ‘before & after’ video that I will cherish forever and ever. We look tired and worn out (because we were) but also really really happy. It’s a snapshot of a time in our lives that I’ll never forget. What a year. Cru, you have been the greatest gift to our family.
Happy New Year everyone.
