holden just turned 5 months & the doctor recommended that i start offering him some different foods.
my baby is growing up!
i love when they start eating & don’t quite know what to think of food- it is so cute.
I LOVE family pictures (:
Yesterday I got the opportunity to be behind the camera with my little family & Kay from One Two Snap Photography did a fantastic job! I actually won this session from liking her facebook page (I was the 1,00th like)- Lets just say I was really excited because I have never won any type of contest before & this was the best kind to win- a free photo session (: (: here are a few of the shots that she got- Thank you so much Kay for taking these amazing shots! We are so thankful (:
We Heart Chick-fil-A! Almost every saturday Justin, Shane & I go to Chick-fil-a for lunch. We have been doing this since before Shane was born- probably for almost 3 years now- & now I crave chick-fil-a on saturdays I can not even help it I have gotta myself addicted.I know that it is something silly & little, but it is something I look forward to- just spending some quality time with my two favorite guys. I love spending time as a family of three- it is the ordinary every day little things that bring us closer as a family & for these things I am so grateful 😉
Here is a couple iphone pictures of my little family at our favorite lunch spot.
What are some of your family traditions?
My Mom & Me
I recently had the opportunity to go back home to visit my family. It is is always such a good time. I cherish all the time we get to spend together seeing it only happens every couple months.
Anyways, while i was home my mom pulled out my old baby book & for the first time it REALLY meant something to me. Being a mom myself now I realize the deep love you have for your child. I read a letter my mom had written to me 24 years ago & it was so sweet to see that my mom was just like I am now. It brought tears to my eyes & joy to my heart because in that moment I realized just how much my mom really does love me. She is the one who taught me how to love this way- deeply & fully. My mom is the most loving person I know. She loves completely without reservation or stipulations. I pray that I can always love Shane & my other children this same way. I am so thankful for the way my mom has loved me & the wonderful example she has been in my life.
Love you mommy!
Shane 1st birthday is slowly approaching & I could not be more excited…eeek. I have been planning this since he was 3 months old.. You think I am joking, but I am not. I want his first birthday to be so special. I will have a full post on all the details after the event, but for now I just wanted to share the theme & the invitation that I designed 🙂
