Sweet baby boy

This was my first time meeting this gorgeous family – I was so nervous for their session because mama is a photographer herself and wanted some pics with her boys. We had to reschedule once so their sweet boy was a little older than my average newborn but he cooperated so well for the session – sleeping for part and giving us lots of smiles the rest of the time. Big brother is so handsome and was so sweet with his little brother. I ended up loving almost every image from this session – was so hard to narrow down a few to share!

graces . . .

1. Plugging along at my 365 project! Determined to keep at it till the end and make a book!

2. Just finished The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up and have started kon maring my house – already feeling less stressed over the rooms that have been decluttered – highly recommend!

3. The memory card I washed in my pants pocket yesterday was empty – thank goodness!

4. When we tell Ellie to do “ojitos bonitos” she bats her eyelashes at us – so so funny!

5. An afternoon of board games with my little guy yesterday

Slides and ducks!

I have been to this park many times but have never really explored it before – during this session this cute little guy helped me find some awesome slides and a cute little boat that was perfect for duck watching:)

1. Christian seeks out the sample carts at Costco now – pretty sure I didn’t need to feed him dinner after his haul on Thursday!

2. Dinner dates with good friends after a busy few months!

3. Ellie took two steps yesterday! Pretty soon we will be chasing her around!

4. Well on my way on my 365 project – decided to switch over to my iphone since it’s more convenient so will have to make an effort to take more pics of Ellie on my big camera

5. Ellie’s Easter dress has been purchased thanks to Well Dressed Wolf – I’m serious mamas – check them out!
