Our First Family Portrait, and more...

I know, but I have tons of Nash pics (as you all know) but I hate my picture being taken, and kept saying "when I lose the baby weight"....well, I didn't lose it and gained more when I went back to work when Nash was 3 1/2....

So, when someone on the trisomy21 board said Get your faces in front of the cameras ladies as your kids need pictures! I did it....

I love the ones of Nash and Seger! These were taken back in February when Nash just turned 6 and Seger was 4 months old...






and this one.....ok, maybe this one is my favorite!
