I know you’re stalking the blog, hon, so I had to throw one up here. Would you believe this one isn’t even my absolute favorite of the bunch?
1. Is there anything more precious than a snuggly newborn?
2. Isn’t his room SO amazingly decorated?
3. See the scratch on daddy’s arm up above? Yeah. That’s one of his battle scars from mommy’s labor. I had to leave it in there…for now at least.
I don’t even know if I can type it out without tearing up. She is 6 months old. 6 months. One half of one year has gone by since that wonderful day when she came into our lives. Sure, I’ve been a little sad each time I realized my kids are growing up, but with her…well, I can’t even bear to think about how fast this amazing time with her is going by. I don’t even have the words to say how connected I am to her and how much she is loved. Happy Half Birthday, Sweet Amr-o! (By the way…do not adjust your screen…yes, there is a little blue spot on the bridge of her nose. I guess it’s a birth mark of sorts. It’s been there forever. I’ve always photoshopped it out, but I’ve decided to just leave her perfect, just the way she is.).
The Bump Mini Maternity Sessions at Baby Coco are back by popular demand! So if you’re expecting, mark your calendar for Saturday, July 18th to get your maternity portraits taken by Pinkle Toes and to shop around at Baby Coco (sigh…who doesn’t want to shop around in that store?).
Our last Bump sessions were a huge hit. Our moms-to-be said:
To all the mom’s-to-be debating doing this, me especially being an older expecting mom, the Mini-bump session was a ball. Go for it!
Michele! This is going to be so hard to choose! I love them. You made me look so pretty! I think I want them all.
My picture arrived yesterday and it is stunning. I didn’t know what to say when I saw it.
See how much fun we had here and here. We’re going to change things up a teeny bit, so stay tuned for the full details. Meanwhile, if you think you might want to come play, please sign up. (This isn’t a final confirmation of participation, so no worries. I’ll be in touch soon with all the info you need to decide).
(OOF, but I still love it.)
…she greets me every morning with a grin that melts my heart, completely calm, completely happy, ready to start the day. This might melt your heart, too:
To say his arrival was timely would be an understatement.
Absolutely incredible experience.
He is perfect.
A quick FYI, I will be “out of the office” (and quite possibly out of my mind ;-)) today through Sunday. Bear with me if you’re waiting on an e-mail or phone call. Thanks so much!
Drove all the way out to Dripping Springs for this, but such a beautiful piece of land and home and family…totally worth it. More from Miss Smiley’s session.
