DC in pictures

 

I realized I never wrote a good DC post.. so here it is.

 

I have no fashion sense so I was texted a friend pictures of shoes. Notice my 2 helpers in the background. I thought of JLK a lot that day. I could take her anywhere with me... except shoe shopping. She HAD to look at every pair... TWICE!!

My first thought seeing this picture was ...she looks so grown up ..I hate it!... I choked on the words though.. I love having her as a baby.. but I cant wait to see her grow up. I was always the mom who was truly a bit hysterical every birthday eve for my kids..I thought I "hated" that they "had" to grow up. Now I am scared to trust that it will actually happen.

I asked Tony to try to start taking random pics of me with our kids. He nailed this one for sure. I love it.

In the lobby of our hotel. She was so good in her stroller this was her release. She was so cute .. and happy.. and fast. You can see why we got so many comments on her. This was one of my favorite dresses on Jennifer. She actually wore it in the maternity photo shoot we did when I was expecting Jonathan. I dont know what I am going to do when she wants to pick her own clothes...  I love putting her in Jennifer's things.. or something that connects my girls.

One of my favorite parts of the trip. Live butterflies. Charlotte was so excited in there.. squealing with delight and being so good to approach the butterflies slowly.

  1. Libby you truly beautiful inside and out. .Your words are powerful and your eyes shine with passion and purpose. ..I still believe your two voices! Both incredible angels working together!

  2. Such great photos! I love all
    Of them. My favorite one is of Charlotte and Pinkie. Such a sweet yet heartbreaking photo. You’re doing big things Libby! Keep it up! Ps the one that Tony asked you to take of him. Too funny!!!

  3. Beautiful pictures and they do radiate happiness even if it is overshadowed with missing JLK. Charlotte is a charming little princess, so cute! I’m glad you had some good moments on this important trip. You’re all doing a great job with Unravel!!!xxx

  4. Beautiful pictures! I dont know if you have heard of this or not but I thought I might mention it. There are people who make teddie bears out of a loved ones clothing after they pass away. It might give you a use for some of the clothes charlotte is growing out of and give all of you a pretty great gift that can last for a long time. One friend of mine has one made from her grandfathers clothes that she even brought to college! It brought a lot of comfort over the years.

  5. “Feel the Flutter!” <3 <3 <3 Baby Charlotte is so gorgeous. Thinking of all 6 of you! Sending love & hugs. XO

  6. Another thing you can do with the clothes that belonged to both of your girls is to have them made into a quilt. You can keep it on your bed and snuggle “with them” every night.

  7. Charolette is such a beautiful little girl. Just like Jennifer. Your kids are all just gorgeous. Great picture of all of you!!! Your on a mission Libby to get some action on Pediatric Cancer and have so many people behind you. You got this my friend and Jennifer is telling all her friends in Heaven what a great momma you are and how proud she is of what you are doing. So am I and waiting anxiously till I can do my part for your mission. We are on our way to find a cure for this monster disease that took away our precious Jennifer but I pray that with everyone’s help things will change for the best!!

  8. It’s so nice to see a smile on your face, Libby. Even if it was forced, it is contagious!

    I was able to spread a little glitter today here in Texas. While wearing my #love4jlk tank I was asked, ‘who is jlk?’ – I am guessing the cashier wasn’t expecting such a story!

    Hugs to your family.

  9. Thank you for sharing,baby girl is so beautiful, you and Tony are amazing, I’m spreading the glitter,forever love for JLK

  10. Looks like you had some fun and that is so great to see. The photos are gorgeous, especially the one with Charolette in the flower girl dress. Tony is doing a great job on the photos of you:) Thank you so much for sharing!

  11. The pictures are amazing. It looks like you all had a wonderful time there. Another step toward change. Thankyou for sharing your pictures. We love you all ♡♡♡♡♡♡

  12. I actually love the crying one of Charlotte. Nice to remember all the moments, happy or not. And that little crying face! Still adorable.
