Pumpkin Patch

September 29, 2018 | My favorite time of year always includes the pumpkin patch, and we decided to try a new spot AND go on opening weekend. Normally this is a bad idea for kid-activities, but for this instance I think people weren’t feeling “fall” yet so it was pretty open. This place was really great, and M did so well napping in the Ergo! E even took my camera for a change…she’s credited with the family-shot. We bought a huge pumpkin, and spent hours there. Let all the Fall-things begin!

Bandit Sisters

September 27, 2018 | When we put M in the outfit and called her a Bandit, E was very confused. Which led to lots of explaining, and laughing about a baby being a robber, and ultimately E wanted a few photos with the BABY BANDIT in the front yard…ha! I’m happy to oblige of course!


September 22, 2018: Attempting to shoot a little different than usual…darker. The things I note about these images are E’s whispy hairs, and M’s sweet baby profile. Also her reflux medicine…twice a day for that poor belly! The YL Diffuser, and the bottle drying rack…such a snap shot for this time in our life…

First Sleep-through-the-Night

September 21, 2018 | Baby M slept THROUGH THE NIGHT!  It is amazing what a full night of sleep can do for you…for the first time in 4+ months.  She is such a joy this girl. Full of babbles, drools, flailing arms and legs, and for the most part general contentment!  Also rolling over happened for the first time while Mom, Abbey and I were watching her on the monitor.  We were running the garage sale at Abbey’s house, so M was just on the floor in C’s room.  It was pretty funny — and ridiculous — that we watched it via a night-vision monitor. Hello 2018!

E continues to be a really great big sister. In fact, I think she assumes the role of co-parent with us more than sibling! She genuinely helps, talks to her (in the same words/tone I do), and loves on her all the time. It’s so fun, and I cannot wait to see how much better it gets as M grows. Will be she like her sister, or totally different? E is such a good kid, there’s no way that M will be as easy-going, right? 🙂


September 19, 2018: This particular day, M happen to be in a black onesie. And the dining room happen to have this headband recently purchased, next to this blanket that was purchased a long time ago. I attempted to snap some cell photos, and quickly realized they were awful…and there sat my DSLR! Looooooove

the Sunflower Field

September 16, 2018: I have to hand it to my family — I get this wild idea to run somewhere for photos, and everyone does such a good job! It was hot, there were lots of bees, and asking a 4-year old to hold a 4-MONTH old isn’t easy. But both girls did amazing, and I have some of my favorite images ever taken in this collection! That bubble-wand is quite the bribery-tool… 🙂
