I am not sure how 4 years can possibly fly by so fast! You can go through the everyday not realizing it, until a momentous occasion brings you to reality, leaving you to wonder where the years have went. Today our oldest son turned 4, leaving us questioning where the last 4 years have went. I truly feel like he was just a baby, and now he has grown into a fun loving, little boy! I can’t believe how much he has grown in the last 4 years, and how much his Dad and I have as well. I was telling Koeplin at lunch that Derrick and I had never changed diapers prior to his, had held a baby very sparingly, never fed or bathed a baby etc. It seemed so crazy that the hospital was sending us home with this little innocent living creature….oh were we ever clueless! But of course we figured it all out soon enough!
We wanted to share a few recent portraits of him from an impromptu session we did with him and the short film that is his video invitation to family for his birthday party. A little chocolate shake bribery may have been brought out during the session. (a trick we learned from so many of our clients who have to pull out the bribes during their children’s portrait sessions!:)
Happy 4th Birthday Koeplin! We are so lucky to have you in our lives!
