Strega Nona

There is just something about wrapping a little boy in a towel. Pull up the little hood and they look adorable. I have a few of these shots as the boys have grown and I love everyone of them.

This time though, something hit me. Oliver is Strega Nona reincarnated. My son, my second born is literally a old Italian lady who loves pasta.

IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW!

Eight Months

Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but it feels like just yesterday that this little chunk was born. A lot can happen in eight months… when you take a step back and think about that amount of time in a vacuum it seems like forever, but in this case eight months have flown by.
