Chatham Family Photographer | Week 24 | Project 52

I think at 8 weeks out, we are finally starting to find a groove with this whole ‘two kids’ thing. I say that now, and in about 2.5 minutes things will change and I’ll be trying to stay above water again. But in all seriousness, the newborn fog lifted around 5-6 weeks and my body has officially adjusted to the sleep deprivation, and I feel like I have a handle on things. Getting out of the house is easier and staying home is easier, and we have had less tantrums and tears (these are not exclusive to the 2 year old). Why am I telling you this? I don’t know…. on to the eye candy!

With summer in full swing we are spending a lot of time outside, and when we are inside you can almost guarantee someone is in just their underwear.

You might have already seen these on my Facebook, but I can’t stop gushing. I left the room one afternoon and came back to see Archer holding Gryffins hand and chatting away to him. I obviously sprinted for my camera, and boy am I glad I did. I know their moments together won’t always be so tender (why are boys so rough?!), so I am happy to have this memory in the bank.Chatham Family PhotographerChatham Family PhotographerChatham Family PhotographerChatham Family PhotographerChatham Family Photographer

To get my creative juices flowing one afternoon I thought I would do a little mini lifestyle shoot with the boys (story of their life), so we went outside to do our favourite things and I tried to get a few more details than I normally would.Chatham Family PhotographerChatham Family Photographer

The week ended with some Father’s Day festivities. Believe me when I say we have some pretty awesome fathers in our life – Eric, of course, and both Papa and Pepe are strong influences in our life. I am thankful everyday to not only have these men for our boys, but also for me.

Meme and Pepe couldn’t bring a gift for Eric without bringing one for Archer. He has barely let Optimus Prime out of his sight since he got it.Chatham Family PhotographerChatham Family PhotographerChatham Family PhotographerChatham Family PhotographerChatham Family PhotographerChatham Family PhotographerChatham Family PhotographerChatham Family Photographer

I can’t leave this post without saying how great of a father Eric is. I have never been more proud of him and the way he continues to rise for us. He is the most hardworking guy I know, and he is already instilling that into the boys. I knew on our wedding day that I was making a good decision, but never did I expect this much good to come of it.Chatham Family PhotographerChatham Family PhotographerChatham Family PhotographerChatham Family Photographer

Happy belated Father’s Day to all the great Dads out there!
