Dear Ivy,

You turned 1 today. 1 and a bundle full of silliness, joy, curiosity, giggles, love, and adventure. You have filled our lives with so much happiness. Your smile is contagious and your giggle is the cutest thing I have ever heard. You’re on the brink of walking! You’re standing up all the time on your own now, and should take those first steps any day. You spent the day with Grandma Betsy! She took you to church this morning and said you grabbed her hand just like everyone else was during singing songs. So adorable and sweet! You loved the Jesus statue and all of the lights and candles! She fed you your favorite, mac and cheese, and Mommy even got to see you over her lunch break :) Later in the evening, your Daddy and I took you for a ride to the park in your new wagon. You ate probably a hundred Veggie Straws and talked and smiled the whole way! You loved the swing and climbing up the play set to go down the slide. For dinner, we had your favorite, baked beans (specifically from Look’s) and chicken. MMMM. I gave you a nice warm, bubbly bath to wash you up and got you ready for bedtime. We read your zoo book and touch-and-feel animal book, and I hugged you real tight one last time and told you how much I love you. I whispered goodnight and laid you in your crib, snuggled you up with your blankie, and shut off the lights. I hope you have sweet dreams baby, you’re the sweetest thing there is.

We love you, xoxo

Mommy and Daddy

Newborn Photos

October 9, 2013

Newborn photos – hoooow exciting! I’ve really been looking forward to these! Seeing what Marie at Finished Vision does with the babies is incredible. She has the cutest little vintage and hip props to get a little mix of everything you could want. Marie has these ADORABLE little headbands that I just totally swooned over for Ivy. The pictures turned out just perfect. I mean, really? How can one baby get soo stinkin’ cute!

Maternity Photos

August 20, 2013

Today, I had to get into a dress, do my hair and make-up, and smile. All of the above are NOT happening lately as I get larger and larger and basically don’t fit in to anything. Maternity photos at 35 weeks pregnant can be challenging. Nonetheless, I gathered myself together to look my ultimate best. I was a bit leery as the rain was coming down while I was curling my hair (add frizz here), but the clouds parted and created the most beautiful sunset scenery, just what I wanted :)  The darling Marie at Finished Vision, captured these intimate, loving moments, between husband, wife, and baby girl.
