LOVE this shot, I forgot my other lense and could not get a picture of him moving so he faked it for me:)
Sara Helen and Madeline. Madeline made us tell her the story over and over about how we all thought she was Sara Helen when we first saw the babies. Julianne knew instantly who Madeline was and the rest of us were wrong!
Mia, Sara Helen and Madeline
