I have one more of these posts. One. How is that even possible. My little guy is going to be ONE next month and I wish I could say that I’m planning a big first birthday for him but I’m not. I can’t! COVID-19 has struck and it has struck HARD. We’ve been quarantined at home for weeks now and we have no idea when it’s going to end. I’m thankful for our home, our family and that we have land where the kids can run around and really not feel the affects of this at all.
Graham will never remember this time in history. The only thing he may notice is that Evy had 40 people at her first birthday party and he’ll probably have 10… MAX…. because that’s the guideline right now. I hope our families will be able to get together to celebrate his first year but if not, I know we’ll find a fun way to celebrate with just us.
Graham has come out of his shell this month!!!! Here are some things that I want to remember from his 11th month of life! :
Wacky colors day at preschool and she was NOT feeling having her picture taken!
Learning how to cut with scissors with Grammie!
Kinectic Sand for the WIN!
Harper…. she is the cutest, most animated ball of chunk!
Just a random afternoon doing some yardwork… I have a feeling these images will be some of my favorites decades from now…. just a peek into our daily lives.
FRIENDS! Without PANTS!
Hanging out with Miss Erica while we work!
Making peanut butter energy balls!
Hanging with Miss Whitney!
Her love hurts sometimes.
This is one of my new favorite pictures of them….
Those blue eyes!
Quick play date with Sisi!
Bokeh Boy came home for a little while and Graham LOVES him…. but also grabs his face and Bokeh is NOT a fan of that!
This was the beginning of COVID-19…. thank goodness for these cars!
This bounce house was 110% worth the investment. We got it for Evy’s birthday party off of Amazon. It fits in a duffle bag and blows up in literally 1-2 mins!
Adventure walks with Mimi have resumed. We sure did miss her while she was gone after her stomach surgery.
Emy and I wore these dresses when we were this age! Seeing Evy and Harper in them made Mimi’s day!
Harper: “Ah! I’m naked!”
Harper: Gotta cover herself up!!!
These just melt me. I love him so much I can hardly stand it!
Joe Joe has started his own Transformational Coaching business and we’re so proud of him. We’re also SO thankful that he’s around all of the time now! These pictures are such a beautiful representation of the little moments he doesn’t miss anymore.
Quick family portraits during COVID-19!
It’s hard to believe I’m writing this… my fourth birth story in four years. I’ve given birth in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Just typing that makes me tired….. and so grateful…. unbelievably grateful. These last four years have been the best and hardest of my life. We cherish being parents and welcoming a new baby is hands down the most incredible thing we have ever experienced in our 18 years together. I’m so excited to introduce you to our newest member of our family and tell you the story of how he came into this world!
Whether you’re brand new to business or have been in business for quite a while, this brand new Youtube video is for you! Michael and I, early on in our business, struggled to relinquish tasks to other professionals outside of our business. Really…. It was more of MY STRUGGLE than his.
Welcome to December’s Student Spotlight!! It’s a new month and we have new photographers to celebrate!! I’m so thankful for them and for their willingness to give of their time and share their stories!!!
This shoot was supposed to happen about a month earlier on the exact day that leftover rains from a hurricane swept through Washington. I’m so thankful we rescheduled! Our reschedule date was absolute perfection! The temperature, the glow, the locations…. it was beautiful! Tyler and Abby’s outfit choices were wonderful and the leaves were full of color and still hanging on the trees.
When Michael and I were in our early years of dating, I would go on trips with his family for Thanksgiving and summer trips to West Virginia and I spent time with his cousins! “Bri-Bri” was so little! He’s the youngest of all of the cousins and it’s crazy to think that he’s old enough to be getting MARRIED! He’s actually older than we were when we got married!! We have known Shannon for years and we were THRILLED when we heard that Brian had proposed because we always hoped that would happen!!!
Maybe it’s just me…. but I feel like this fall is FLYING by! It seems like just the other day that I was sharing about three more KJ Students who are doing amazing things in their businesses! Well, this weeks marks the beginning of November and I have three amazing students to introduce you too!!!
