  • Now marked in the “when you’re having a bad day, look at these photos” folder. Especially the bagel, bib and mock “scream;” it’s a wonder you get anything done with all that collective cuteness around. Thanks for sharing.

    – the brotherly love

  • Jessica- Thank you so much for sharing Beau and your family with all of us. These precious pictures brought tears to my eyes and gladness to my heart. Beau is such a blessing to so many and you have made a difference in many lives. Merry Christmas to you all.

  • Gee … 3 years ago, would you have ever thought after just giving birth, that this child, your beautiful new born baby, was going to unite so so many hearts from all around the world, all because of his precious heart & union with a puppy.

    Two souls, new to this life, find in each other what we all dream of… unconditional love, acceptance, & honour of who they are.

    Thank you Jessica for bringing your miracles to the world. We are blessed to share with you. Much love xo

  • I love reading your posts. But this montage of photos of your little game changer was one of the best. Thank you for sharing. And happy happy Beau!

  • Your blog inspires me everyday and I can’t wait to be a mother. If I’m half as good of you as you I’ll be in great shape. Beau lifts up my heart everyday with your pictures. So with that I say Happy Birthday to him and I hope it was amazing. Thanks for everything you do Jessica.

  • Awesome photos. I think my favorite was the one with Beau and Theo in the crib. Happy Birthday to Beau and his Momma.

  • This one made me a little weepy. Your kids are so precious. It’s hard to see Beau growing up! And I’m not even his momma!! My grandson is about 6 months younger than Beau so I think I’m really feeling his growing up pains on my heart. This is a lovely post. Thank you for sharing. <3

  • Thank you. Thank you so much for sharing these amazing photos of your beautiful family. You have a real talent as a photographer and a beautiful way of capturing special monents. I look forward to reading your blog everyday. Simply awesome.

  • I just want to say I have never commented on a blog before. I discovered you and your family through Instagram and I can truly say it brings a smile to my day no matter how bad it may be. I wanted to give you a compliment on your ability to capture a true moment in a picture. You are going to have some amazing memories to look back on. Keep up all of the awesome work you and your family do. Thanks for sharing your amazing family with us.

  • This post made me cry!

    Your family is so beautiful and I cannot wait to have children of my own and to adpot a puppy so they can grow up together!

    Thank you for sharing!!

  • This is one of my favorite post of your of all time I think. When I found your site Beau was still little (with puppy Theo) and I had my own newborn…a blond little boy just like him! He just turned 2 and now Beau is 3…wow. Thanks for sharing his story and you give me encouragement & inspiration for my own little trouble makers πŸ™‚

  • Wow! How special πŸ™‚
