love this pictures! I am so out of the loop... and don't think I'm crazy stupid!? I did now know you could breast feed all the way through your pregnancy! And what will you do when baby comes? Breast feed both? Just wondering how all that works and you see pretty darn open and the type of person who wouldn't be offended to be asked such a strange question!
OH, and the funny thing about me not having a clue about all this... I milk cows:-D lol... not that maybe that's the same at all..? But, they milk right up until about a month before they're due, and that's because you "dry them up." some would just keep on milking.. it's hard on their body's though, so we chose to give them that break and to vaccinate. ANYWAY! lol.. I know more about cows milk and reproduction then my own. I don't have kids yet, so can that be my excuse??
AMAZING!!!!!! i love these photos. how gorgeous are you and your family????
should be 'portraits of our beautiful little family'. i love those blue socks and shoes. wonderful and special photos.
Tessa,Thanks for bringing up the topic of breastfeeding during pregnancy/tandem nursing. Your questions are not stupid!Indeed, it is possible to continue nursing throughout pregnancy and there is no evidence that doing so has any adverse effects on the unborn baby. Likewise, nursing a toddler and newborn at the same time (tandem nursing) is not an unusual arrangement, and can be beneficial to both children. Here's a link with a ton more information about this: http://www.llli.org/FAQ/bfpregnant.htmlEveryone does what works best for them, and for me and the Kiddo our nursing relationship has continued quite blissfully through this pregnancy. I look forward to nursing both children soon, and expect that sharing that bond will prove to be a positive foundation for their sibling relationship.
oh my mercy. So lovely!The shot of T and the Kiddo is perfect. Just beautiful. And I am delighted to see that we're not the only ones who let our baby run around as naked as he wants all summer long! :D
LOL, Meg. The diaper and shoes were a compromise! He would've much preferred to be in his birthday suit. Forget about the shirt and pants I was angling for him to wear!
These just made my day, my week, my month, my year! You three make my heart sing. Thank you for this post.And thank you, Liz, for these magnificent photos!xoxo
COMPLETE PRECIOUSNESS. Leigh, i just adore your family. Every cute post about them or your parties, i just want to come over and spend a whole day with you guys. You guys seem so warm and loving and open about it.these are beautiful.i loooove the first one. i love the one of you all laughing.
Gorgeous family photos. What a cutie you have. I also love your hair and that necklace is insane. Congrats on your soon-to-be-bigger family!
What would we do without Liz? The photos are wonderful! Thank you SO much for sharing with this pining mamaw. You guys are a sight for sore eyes!!!
Oh, these are so gorgeous! Glad I'm not the only one with a toddler who's on a clothing strike! :-) But honestly, that part made the photos even better.
I am not sure that I have ever seen anything more precious than your baby in socks, tennis shoes, and a diper :)
thanks for the interesting answers. I will look at that site...
I absolutely LOVE your blog!! Wow, these pictures are amazing! and WHERE did you find that necklace?!
Gorgeous Leigh, you're such a pregnant glamourpuss. I love the shot of you both holding the Kiddo's hands over the water. Looking forward to electronically meeting your little one very soon.xx
Such lovely photos! I adore that they look so natural, not 'catalogue-ish' at all. Kiddo running around in a diaper, the three of you making faces, it's all just grand. And the breastfeeding photo is beautiful.
you're looking so 'beautiful, bountiful, blissful'. I'm sure you've read the book of the same name, if not, check it out. That first photo of you breatfeeding your little one is divine. You all look so happy and considering I'm still nursing my almost ywo-year-old I'm finding your whole story so inspiring. x
Absolutely beautiful photos and family!
Each one is so beautiful but I love the first one the most!
oh, leigh, i am in love with these photos. i LOVE the one with taro and the kiddo with their hands behind their backs -- like father, like son! so cute!!!!!
These are so sweet! Your son is beautiful. He is so cute in his little diap and sneaks! And btw I love your necklace:)
Lovely, lovely. I especially like the one of T and the Kiddo!

these are so so so beautiful! Just wonderful.
I love those photos!!!!
These are wonderful, I love the deep colors. And you're so rad for nursing your toddler while pregnant!! It appears we'll be doing the same thing as neither Sam nor I are ready to give it up and we're thinking about having another! I imagine it probably helps ease the transition from only child to sibling, the tandem nursing, don't you think? Anyway, thanks for sharing your lovely photos; they're wonderful.
Fantastic family photos!
Beautiful, beautiful. Love the nursing pics, I have so many of these around the house. I miss my little nurslings.
So are you still able to nurse pregnant? I heard somewhere that at a certain point u have to stop breastfeeding your oldest because the colostrum begins to develop?? im curious, do tell! u look beautiful as always.

i would just be repeating, but lets, well, REPEAT: gorgeous photos. so inspiring and old-fashioned modern!
