A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Okay, I know that is a cliché, but all new parents (and grandparents!) know what I mean.  Every day passes so quickly that we treasure the photos of our little guy and remind us how quickly he’s growing and changing before our eyes!

I’ve been thinking about doing this post for a long time now, but I never knew where to begin.  Then yesterday, Reid and I had lunch with my great friend Beverly and I knew this would be a great place to start!Reid & Bev enjoy a nice warm lunch on a rainy day in Austin, 2-8-10Most people who follow our family blog know Beverly because she’s been in my life for more than 14 years. (I can’t believe it!) We’ve been together through some of the best parts of our adult lives, including standing up for each other at each of our weddings in 2005, the same year she started her professional photography business.

Fast-forward a few years and she was with us to document the big belly.Daddy has big hopes for the big belly She and David were some of the first to meet Baby Reid.  Reid woke up to greet Beverly! :) 4-4-09This pic from Bev is *one of* my favorite pics from Reid's first few week. It already shows his great, happy personality!!Bev took the photos for his birth announcement when he was six weeks old.

Over the summer she took photos of my dear friend Elizabeth and her family, and snapped a few of the Remingtons, too.

Before the holidays, Bev was kind enough to take some pictures of our family for our holiday card, and also to document this special time in our family.  Here are *just a few* of my favorites (that weren’t on the holiday card)!Bev's photo - Reid, 12-13-09Bev's photo - family, 12-13-09Bev's photo - family, 12-13-09Bev's photo - Daddy & Reid, 12-13-09121309-021Bev's photo - Reid, 12-13-09Bev's photo - Curious Reid, 12-13-09We feel very lucky to have such a loving friend in our lives.  And the fact that she blesses us with such wonderful documentation of our family, is truly one of the greatest gifts!
