Hospital Bag Must Haves

Today I'm 39 weeks and 6 days pregnant. We are so close! I packed my bag and baby's bag the other day and I wanted to share what I packed. I have to warn you, I have always been an over packer but I'd rather be over prepared than under prepared!  Let's start with my bag! I mostly packed things that I use on a daily basis but added a few extra things. Along with these things I'm bringing ... Read the Post

Week 4

4/52 39 weeks with this little babe in my belly. I don't know you yet but you have been with me the last 9 months. I don't know what your little voice sounds like but you hear us singing and talking all day long. I don't know what your fingers and toes look like but I feel you kicking and tap dancing on my bladder every single day and even more at night. You haven't met your big sister yet but ...

Week 3

3/52 She tells me that she has a baby in her belly too and today she told me that when he cries she's going to pick him up and make him feel better. My mama heart is melting! I propped up my camera on a pile of Vivien's books on top of our dresser and I used the canon remote app on my phone to get this shot. Metadata: 1/200, f/1.4, ISO 6400, 35mm   ... Read the Post

Maternity Pictures

I don't get behind the camera very often but documenting my growing belly was something that I knew I wanted to do. We prayed and prayed for this sweet little baby and I want to look back at these pictures and remember how thankful I am that I got to carry him for 9 months and be his mama. These were taken when I was 34 weeks pregnant. I set up the manual settings and gave the camera to my sister ... Read the Post

Week 2

2/52 In our last house we didn't have a bath tub and I had no idea how much I would miss it! Vivien is a shower taking pro but nothing beats bubble baths and wrinkly toes. It's also very sad being pregnant and not being able to take a bath, trust me I'm making up for it!  Now if only she would let me wash her hair without making that face in the last ... Read the Post

Week 1

I'm here again. Taking one picture a week (maybe more!) This time around there are no themes, no pressure, just life. Picking up my camera and taking pictures of our everyday and I'm excited to share. 1/52 Our year started with a pink birthday! My girl turned three and I can still remember when she was teeny tiny with no hair. Now she has enough hair for a bun and is always on the ... Read the Post

A New Year

2019 A new year. New plans, new goals, new routines and new BABY! This year instead of a resolution I chose a word. My word is Thankful. This last year and a half has been a year of struggle, growth, change, a new normal, happiness and restoration, it wasn't easy but I am so thankful for it. We moved from Oregon to Washington, we got new jobs, we moved a couple of more times. I took so many ... Read the Post
