Well I’m not technically late with this blog post and that’s a first! We’ve been loving life with our sweet nine month old!! He’ll be ten months old soon and I’m just not ready for double digits. I have noticed that I am holding on to his little-ness so much more than I did with Evy. I can SEE it slipping away from me and I just want it to slow down. I remember something my Nanny told my momma when she was sad that we were all growing up so fast… Nanny said “Brenda, if they weren’t changing this fast, something would be wrong.”….. and that’s a good perspective when I get sad about losing my tiny baby.
He’s changing so fast because he’s so healthy and is the most amazing gift. I’m so grateful that he’s healthy and I never want to take that for granted. I’m allowed some tears over losing my tiny baby but remembering the gift of how healthy he is makes those tears just turn to thankfulness. Graham is thriving and changing each day. Each day we see him do something new and it honestly catches me off guard. I’ll see him clap or pull up on something or try to reach and take a step (still hasn’t officially taken a step) and I can’t believe he’s my little rainbow baby that I JUST HAD!!!
How has he been outside of me longer than he was ever inside of me!?
As I think over this month with him, I have a few things I want to remember as a parent! :
These Powers kids are huggers!
Erica is our lifesaver most weeks! SO thankful for her!!!! Post-cousin-sleeepover!!!
Getting them all on the same couch was incredibly hard!
My poor boy had HFM!!
My poor baby! HFM is miserable!
These pictures of all four of them are miracles!!!
The babies look thrilled. lol.
Graham “Mom, really? You couldn’t have found me pants that FIT?!
I just can’t get enough of him! I hold him close when he nurses.
Graham! Bahahaha! Those eyes are impressive!
This beautiful day way unlike any wedding I have ever photographed before. It’s hard to put into words how powerful and inspiring it was.
If you’ve been following my updates since I got the R6 two years ago, you know I LOVE it!! It has been a game changer for me! But there is ONE mistake that I’ve made that cannot be fixed afterwards!
There are things that EVERY photographer should have on their website! We will walk through some students’ websites to see how small changes can impact their perceived value, and for you to see if what they’re missing is something that you are too!
You know what I’m realizing? I’m realizing I am loving getting to see people I love and miss in this very busy season of our life.
We’re gearing up for wedding season and there are so many ways to market yourself DURING a wedding to keep new clients coming in! I have been a wedding photographer for 13 years, and I have never paid for ‘traditional’ advertising!
I am eating my words again! For years, I have used InDesign for everything… but Canva had a HUGE update last year which changed everything!!
