Kicking off this week’s double-header blog posts is the Tacconi Family!
Heather is Caleb’s second oldest sister and lives in Rochester with her husband, Steve, and their two daughters. We get to see them fairly frequently as there’s only about an hour drive between us. We rarely have more than a few hours together, though. So vacation was a real treat!
Our kids LOVE playing together! Amelia is 3 years old and is definitely the “mother hen” of the cousins. Maybe it’s all the practice she gets as a big sister, but she is always watching out for the smaller kids and encouraging them. Phrases like, “It’s OK, Sweetheart,” and “Come on, Sweetheart, you can do it!” are totally normal around Amelia! Paige is 1 year old, and the youngest of the cousins. That doesn’t stop her from keeping up, though! She is full of personality and Elizabeth adores her! Last week Elizabeth was naming her family members and the list went: Pop Popp, Grammy/Mimi, Mommy, Paige. It’s really the sweetest thing to have cousins so close in age!
As you may have guessed, we did the Tacconi family session on the same day as the other family photos. What you probably haven’t realized was that all of the children had just been, or were about to be, sick with a nasty virus! In addition to not feeling well, it was only in the upper 50s for temperature and incredibly windy! You would never guess it by the photos though! I’m so proud of those kids for sticking it out and doing their best to smile for the camera! Of course, it doesn’t hurt having parents that will tickle you and spin you around, either. And when it comes to making their kids laugh, Heather and Steve are pros!
