bite size love


My friend Shannon and I got our two little ones together for a mini love day shoot.  They are quite the pair-- complete silence when they are together, but random professions of their love for each other to their mamas while they are apart.  Haley must have told me 4x before they got to the house that her prince, Jed, was coming to marry her.  And a week or so ago, Jed confessed to his mama that he wasn't just going to kiss Haley on the cheek! Oh my!

We had a bunch of cute things on the agenda:  tin can phone calls, sharing a drink: one bottle, two straws, and plastic flower exchanging.  After all, when a boy gives you flowers that will never die as a token of his love, you know he means forever.

Although Haley and Jed weren't much for it... we did get a few cute shots of the two.
Let me know if any clever captions or sweet quotes come to mind for these, please!
