if babies are a gift from heaven… then six babies must be christmastime

We’ve had a little baby boom around here.

This year, six women – who all happen to be my friends and coworkers – have given birth… to these angels:

L-R: Caius (7.5mth), Lucy (16wks), Sage (12wks), Monty (6wks), Judah (6wks), Resina (3wks).


There are now six more reasons that the world is a better place:

And sixty more little toesies that are begging for kisses.

As much as moms need to lean on one other in order to flourish… so do our littles.

So glad we all have each other.

And so glad I have this one to call my own:


Dear friends, do you have moms near-by that you can share life with? I sure hope so. We were never meant to play this gig alone…

    This is true. No matter where in the world you are, your economic condition and the weather, you need friends or family (or both!) that you can lean on, depend on, laugh with and cry with. This is so important!!

    Great pics. They are all so cute. I have had a play group with the same moms since our babes were just a couple months old. The oldest ones are now in 1st grade. We still get together.

    Beautiful pictures, Adriel! I love, love, love babies so I can only imagine what a great time you and all the other moms had all had in getting the babies together for a photo shoot!

  • […] In November I showed off my six pack. Six pack of babies that is. (Pictured at the top of this post.) Then I wrote a poem (gasp!) about that moment – […]
