Six!!

My sweet little guy,

Once again the year has flown by and we put you to bed tonight for the last time as a five year old. Tomorrow you are six!! You just finished transitional kindergarten at your new school and had a great year. You learned so much and met so many new friends in both class and after school daycare. You also just finished up your first year of baseball and you loved having dada help coach your team. You still play soccer and I think you prefer it a bit over baseball and you still take swimming lessons each week so our weeks are very busy between practices, lessons, homework and games. You love being busy and active and you have a hundred times the energy mama does. You lost your two bottom teeth a few months ago and were excited to have visits from the tooth fairy. Your big teeth grew in quickly so we didn’t have a gap toothed smile for long. You are such a happy guy – always singing and talking and you make friends wherever we go.

You still love playing with cars and dinosaurs and are into anything super hero and some star wars. You love building as well with blocks and Legos and can put together simple sets with little help. You love watching Paw Patrol, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Dinotrux, etc but will always let Ellie watch her Mickey or Peppa when you’re both in the room. You absolutely love your sister and we couldn’t ask for a better big brother for her. You play so nicely with her, help take care of her and are so sweet with her all the time, even when she is constantly taking your toys or her needs are put before yours. Watching your relationship with her grow has been one of my greatest joys over the last year and I hope you always remain close. Dada remains your best friend and you two are constantly going on adventures together to the movies, dino playground, Kids Concepts, out on your scooters, etc. Your cousins are close runners up and I’m so glad we all live close so you guys can grow up together.

You have been counting down for this birthday – you can’t wait to be a big six year old and a kindergartener in the fall. While I love watching you grow and change each year I wish time would slow down just a little bit – I know you promise you’ll always live close to us if not with us but I know that someday soon you’ll prefer hanging out with your friends to spending time with us. Until then I will enjoy every minute of watching you grow and learn. Happy Birthday to our first baby – mama and dada love you so much!

Fall Minis 2016!!

Can’t believe it’s time to start thinking about fall minis already!! There are lots of dates and locations to choose from this year – a couple new spots and some old favorites. Use the links below to book your session – if you have a prepaid session on file you want to use just shoot me an email with the slot you want and I’ll block it off for you:)Just a reminder that minis are for up to five people, immediate family only – no grandparents, cousins etc as they are short sessions and get too hectic. The mini sessions are not themed for the holidays as I know some people like to keep the pictures up in their home all year – they are just shorter lifestyle sessions perfect for getting both posed and candid shots of your family/kiddos. Feel free to email me with questions! Links for each day are located below the date/location:)
