Meet sweet little Ellie, shown here at less than a week old.  So much beauty in this tiny person...

A space shuttle has rocket boosters that power liftoff and the shuttle engines are at maximum throttle until the shuttle breaks through the earth's atmosphere and can more calmly cruise out in space.  The rocket booster phase is a turbulent yet exhilarating time, just as it can be for a young family. These years are filled with adding children to the mix, and perhaps moving houses or even cities or changing job responsibilities. It is a thrilling time and adrenaline is often what gets you through! After breaking through the atmosphere of parenthood and things seemingly calming down a little, I imagine you get a beautiful perspective like an astronaut does in space. I'm thinking of all this as I look through the pictures of this beautiful growing family and imagine both the excitement and the craziness both Ellie's parents and grandparents might be feeling during this phase. 

This is my friend and former colleague, Moira. She looks beautiful here, although she might kill me for putting a picture of just her on the blog. :)

I can only imagine what it's like in the next phase of life - to look at your children, mostly grown, and grandchildren starting to come along. I imagine it's pretty rewarding to look at the vibrant, full-of-love family you've helped create by your faithfulness in the daily toils of life...

The newest member of the family gets to reap the benefits of this love. What a beautiful and blessed little baby. :)

Bob and Moira, you certainly picked the right photographer to take your family pictures. When a picture can capture an emotion and the viewer can "feel" what they are seeing it is magical. You and your family are beautiful and these pictures have captured it. God has truly blessed you.
