What can I say that I haven't said before? I love them. But yeah, I've said that before. Let me say it again: I love these dear friends, a lot.
The Grays just get better with each babe they add to their gang. I am so grateful that I get to document them regularly, and feel lucky to bear witness to their amazing love and awesome togetherness.
Sweet, yes indeed. I should probably show you the photo that follows, the one where the girls are yelling at the ducks. They are fiery, these Gray girls.
It just doesn't get better than completely spontaneous dance parties. I don't remember what prompted Memphis and Odessa to bust out their Beyonce-inspired moves, but I am ever so glad they did!
These girls, they can be apprehensive, particularly of the camera. But something happened between our last visit and this one, and they just turned. it. OUT. Memphis, who has been described by her mama as "all business," completely let down her guard with me and gave me so much of her natural self that weeks later I'm still feeling all squishy about it. Memphis Ella Merritt Gray, the biggest of the big sisters; I've known her since she was just a few months old, when Tiffany and I met in a group for new moms. She and my girl rolled around on the rug next to each other, and Memphy gave my camera the stink eye. I'm telling you, serious business this girl. You can't really blame me for loving her a little something extra.
Raleigh "Roo," looking a little bigger (okay, a lot bigger) than the last time I saw him.
364 days apart, these girls, and even closer in their hearts.
Can we get a resounding "STUNNING!" amidst the chaos that is three children?!
Thanks for letting me and my camera into your world again, Gorgeous Grays.
I do love you five.
