After much waiting (I know, 2 teasers later), I'm now able to introduce you to little misses Carson and Harper. And these girls bring me such joy. I've known their mom for about 3/4s of my life. Her parents lived across the street from my grandparents. And after they both passed away and my family moved, I then lived across the street from Rylen and her family. Now we're a happy neighborhood, my parents, Rylen's parents and me. Rylen announced late last summer that she and her husband Jim were expecting. And not just one, but two bundles of joy. It was such a blessing to watch them (and Rylen) grow, and then to finally meet them and hold them. It's been so much fun to see how they've grown and developed in the past 8 weeks. And I look forward to being part of their lives as they continue to grow into beautiful girls.
At the point of taking their pictures, they were already a couple weeks old. Not optimum for newborn pictures, but we made it work. Look how happy they are!
That white background. Ladies and gentlemen that is an IKEA deal! Be resourceful!
Carson and Harper, you're Aunt Courtney loves you very much. I'll always be there for you...
