the joy of love - then and now

I took this picture of my boys on February 26, 2008. I remember that day like it was yesterday. It was the day after they were released from the special care nursery in the hospital and got to come home.

This was their first photo shoot. My mom helped me set this picture up. We tucked them into a wicker laundry basket and I started snapping pictures. Shortly after I started, Owen peed on Ethan.

This is still my favourite picture to date. Nothing else I have taken comes close.



Next week on Valentine's Day, my little boys turn three years old. Unbelievable.

Beautiful pictures Jen! It's hard to believe that three years have gone by already!

What did the boys say about the baby picture? Do they believe that was them? Too adorable - then and now!
Oh my GOODNESS! This picture is soooo cute! I love how you have them holding that picture in the now picture. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!

I bet they get a kick out of the pee story. Brilliant idea to have them hold the "then" photo.

The first picture is amazing. They are so close, minus the hospital bracelet, it looks like a sneak peek into the womb! Love the shot of them holding it. They probably can't believe they were that little either!

I think you should change their names to Morris and Mortimer so they can truly be the Mo-Mo McDougall boys...
