As a threesome, they have a band called "Celebration."
Christian, the oldest of the three, is passionate about music, the guitar especially. From what I observed this summer, he spends every spare minute practicing or studying other musical artists. I also noticed that he's very quick to take advantage of opportunities to serve even when it's not expected or required of him. I've never met a young man (and I've always felt this way) with so many selfless attributes. I completely trust and admire him and know he has a very bright future. On the outside, he's handsome with the perfect amount of curl in his dark hair. He's got big brown teddy-bear eyes, broad shoulders for his frame, strong legs and an oval-shaped head very similar to mine. I often look at Christian and think, "We look alike!" He's soft-spoken with a distinct and memorable laugh that makes me smile each time I hear it. Because he isn't too outspoken, he has a mysterious side to him that often makes me wonder what he is thinking.
Next up, Lissie. She hops when she's excited. She has extremely small fairy feet. Her hair is long and thick, yet fine--very feminine. Personality wise, she is very giving, always willing to give me a back massage upon request (I miss those!). She dreams of becoming a professional ballroom dancer. The way she feels about dance reminds me of the way I used to obsess about gymnastics at her age. She's a math whiz and Harry Potter fanatic. I think she is perfect and always wanted to grow up and have a daughter just like her. It's crazy how much Maggie reminds me of her--my wish was granted!
Bryant is completely lovable and playful. He has a blue eye and a hazel eye. He has dark brown hair and a very masculine and attractive square jaw. He loves to read, play soccer, and casually kick around his ball. He is so good with my kids. While he was here, we'd all go on morning walks together. He would push Maggie and Magson in the stroller with spins and speed that would challenge any kid ride at an amusement park. When he's concentrating, he flexes his mouth into an over-extended smile and then relaxes. He's a complete natural in front of the camera. He's got a lot of style and makes friends easily. He's fourteen years my younger, but I look up to him and admire him a lot. :)
I know that was choppy and disjointed.; it's late and I'm tired, tired, tired, but wanted to share some random tidbits about three of my favorite people in the world...totally missin' you guys today!

I'M GONNA MISS YOU! I love, love, love you!
Total true love,
That's what's scribbled on the whiteboard when I look up from my computer. My 14-year-old baby sister wrote it the night before she flew back home to Germany. We stayed up into the wee hours that night! I miss her.
We went on so many photoshoots and I LOVE them all. Below is our first session together. Lissie has a thing for horseback riding (and a thing for cowboys), so when she spotted that teal cowgirl hat while we were shopping, she had to buy it. Sooo, this set features the cowgirl in her, and the singer in her (she has a beautiful Taylor Swift-sounding voice), all while strummin' her guitar. Oh, and she loves to dance, so I had to sneak one dancing photo in there, too.
Total true love, right back at ya, Lissie! ♥♥♥
PS. In other news (for those of you who aren't friends with me on Facebook), I'm pregnant and due in March!! We're beyond excited and can't wait to find out the gender this month. Also, I'm booked through November. XOXO to everyone who supports and encourages me.
