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!
I just feel like I need to say…. prepare yourself. Prepare yourself for some of the most gorgeously styled details I’ve ever photographed. Prepare yourself for fun portraits and the sweetest ceremony and lastly, prepare yourself for some serious JOY!!
I bought the RF 100mm Macro because I wanted to compare it with my EF 100mm Macro! I’ve had the EF for YEARS but since I upgraded to the R6 last year, I’ve slowly been replacing my lenses with the RF models.
This Dover Hall Estate wedding was one for the books! Wow! Just incredible! From the planning to the florals to the dress and creative use of the property. It was just gorgeous!! We met Ryan and Danielle at their engagement session a few months back and we fell in love with them. They are truly as kind and thoughtful and sweet as they appear.
Oh you are something!!!! We are starting to lose you around the house! You crawl under tables, behind couches and soon, I just know you’re going to discover the stairs! You will walk laps around the ottomans and you LOVE to pull up on everything. I’ve caught you multiple times trying to splash in the toilet and it’s just hilarious… your brother or sister NEVER attempted that!
This day was one for the record books. It was the first time we had photographed anything at the beautiful Ivy Rose Barn and let me tell you, it’s a dream! It was also the first time that I was able to meet Sharon and Turner in person!! This is SO rare for me!! Normally we’ve already met our KJ Couples beforehand but thanks to the pandemic, we never had a chance to!
We’re in a quite a new season. Rhett’s seventh month has been the month where he decided to start moving! No cord, cup, small choking sized object is safe anymore! This happened literally the week he turned seven months and he has been on the go ever since.
