When I was deciding on newborn photos for Noah, I knew I really wanted a Lifestyle shoot, right in the comfort of my own home. I’m not one that is huge into props, I tend to prefer a more organic feel to my pictures. Also, the idea of dragging the family (a newborn and two 17 month olds) to a location for pictures after just having a c-section was a bit overwhelming. So when Fulleylove Photography asked me about doing pictures,
I can’t believe that Noah will be 12 weeks old on Friday – it feels like just yesterday that these pictures were taken. When I was younger, I didn’t want to listen to my parents when they would tell me to enjoy the moment because time goes by much faster the older you get. Now I finally understand what they meant. We are all so busy living life that its easy to get into a routine and miss those moments.
This is my second Mother’s Day and now I have three baby boys! We don’t have much planned for the weekend but honestly, I’m really looking forward to it. Time is flying so fast. I can’t believe that the boys are almost 20 months old and Noah is close to 3 months. I told my husband that all I wanted for Mother’s Day were pictures of me and the boys. Since my mother in law was in town as well,
I had so much fun planning the boys 1st birthday! I had so many ideas initially but ended up deciding to go with Where the Wild Things are theme. I started planning their party 6 months ago on Pinterest but to be honest, waited until the last minute to actually put it all together.
The last few months have been a bit crazy but exciting crazy – I am officially out of the first trimester. I never thought that I was going to see a positive pregnancy test again, let alone one without doing IVF! Yes, this baby is all natural…he is our little miracle! The day I took the test I was so nervous to tell Brent. I knew he would be excited but completely shocked just as I was.
We had such a fun weekend – I am so sad that it is already over! We decided to take the boys to the pool (this was only their 3rd time) and they had so much fun! I found these floaties (these are similar) at Target and man they were a success; the boys loved them! They even went into the adult pool. It is so nice having a resort like pool in our neighborhood.
I thought I would finally share a post about our high chairs. I searched everywhere for a chair that would fit nicely in our home. I contemplated getting the Ikea chair since it is so reasonably priced and there are a ton of super cute Ikea covers now (I also just came across this one –
These three know the way to my heart. I had so much fun taking pictures of these guys for Father’s Day. Brent is such a doting dad – he truly adores these two! His heart is so pure, so full of love and kindness – he challenges me to be a better person each and every day. On days like today it is hard not to think about all the hopeful dads out there.
Our trip to OKC started out as a bit of a disaster. I had packed for two weeks straight so that it wouldn’t pile up at the end. I purchased a cute backpack from Zara to help with all of our carry on items as I knew my hands would be full – thank goodness I did, it was a lifesaver. We also carried on our Ergobaby carriers which we love!
My very first Mother’s Day. I never thought I was going to say those words. I am so blessed and thankful for my family – my heart is spilling with love and joy! I woke up to beautiful flowers, cards and gifts from Brent, Max, Hudson and Casey. I was completely spoiled rotten! A few weeks back my photographer who took my maternity photos and the boys newborn photos offered a free Mother’s Day session to her clients for the year.
