I am the youngest of four children in my family, endearingly known as “the baby” … well, my brothers had different names for me, but we’ll just stick with that one. ;) I have three older brothers (yes, you can feel bad for my childhood full of headless Barbies and scratched-up knees), all of which have married gorgeous women and have created incredibly adorable children. Like, seriously adorable…I’m not sure how they all received the best of the “looks genes.” I’ll be honest, I’m just praying that when Mark and I have kids, they’ll measure up to the cuteness! ;) When I married into the Duvick family, I gained another niece, who is also a beauty and I couldn’t be more blessed! I am absolutely smitten by my nieces and nephews and wish I could spend so much more time with them! Whenever I get the chance, I try to capture their growing and changing personalities and love every bit of it! All of them (I’m not just being nice, this is the truth) have the sweetest little hearts and I am so proud to call them family. So, today, I want to share these little loves with all of you.
First up, we have Thomas and Kathryn’s kids, Tommy and Taylor. Two blonde beauties who love each other, and also love to bother each other…as brother and sister should. ;) Common themes in this household include lots of giggles, Thomas the Tank Engine and riding bikes….as much as possible.
Next up are Russell and Sami’s daughters, Tessa and Joby. More blonde cuteness with a really sweet sister relationship. These two will often be found making and writing music while dancing as princesses. There is also another little babe due in December and we can’t wait to meet the newest member to the Allen family.
And this little bundle of joy is Jameson and Allison’s son, Jaxon. At 8 months, he has grown and changed so much, but it is so clear how much he loves his mommy and daddy! He is instantly mesmerized by Jameson playing his guitar and very early on loved to follow Allison’s voice around the room with his eyes.
I also really love being an Aunt to Jax with this girl, Joy, my childhood friend and Allison’s sister! :)
And last, but most definitely not least, we have Mark’s brother, Luke’s daughter, Mya. This curly-top is all girl. She loves to twirl and sing and pick flowers! She’s an absolute doll!
I hope you enjoyed a little peek into my lovely growing family! I feel so blessed. :)
