my hands down most favorite baby item ever this round is our @snuggle_me_organic
mabel would probably only be sleeping in my arms if i didn’t own this. the way it snuggles her in is pure genius!
i cannot recommend this enough.

lots of squeals • halfway rolling • finally growing out of 0-3 size clothing • over 12 lbs • making us work hard for those giggles • smiles come easy • drooling all day long • celebrated your first christmas • first and second ear infections • getting ticklish • so entertained by your big brother • giddy when you see mama • found your toes
i love a fresh start to a new year. so many possibilities for growth and new opportunities. 2017 was incredible because it brought us our sweet baby girl, but i can just feel it in the air that 2018 is going to be amazing.
oliver is mostly excited it’s now his birthday month. can’t believe i will have a 4 year old in a few weeks 😳
christmas just keeps getting better and better every year!
dare i say, best santa picture ever??? we had everyone laughing pretty hard with this one 😂
we play dress up.
one of these months I will actually post an update on time...

little giggles • found your fingers and love to chew on them • drooling all day long • lots of babbling • smiles so easily • mommy is your favorite • 11lbs • still wearing 0-3 size clothing • prefers to be held constantly • swaddling is a must • still not a fan of your car seat • almost rolling over • slept through the night once • dream baby!
introducing mabel to my favorite christmas tradition, picking out a real tree! she lasted only a few minutes... 😂
not sure anything can top a fresh out of the bath baby!
the other day I was thinking about my days of when I was single and a full time photographer and thought i was SO busy! now i’m married, have two kids, and run a small business. add in cooking, cleaning, trying to find time for date nights, time with family and friends— i feel like i am slacking in some area of my life, always. I sit and laugh at my younger self who was stressed out. isn’t It crazy how the older you get, you just keep learning how to take on more and more and then even more? how can one possibly do It all?? we can’t, and life definitely isn’t perfect. but with help we can conquer so much more than doing things alone. - - - - -
what a crazy two weeks it’s been!
trip to the ER for oliver and a temp of 106.1°, launching a kickstarter, hand foot and mouth disease, thanksgiving, head cold for me, meetings with manufacturers somehow in between, and now a FULLY FUNDED KICKSTARTER. funny how things go opposite of how you plan or envision them to turn out, but I am incredibly grateful for the support during these weeks. can’t wait to see the final pieces of my collection that i have been working on for what feels like an eternity!
thankful for all my help given during these crazy days. I’m lucky to have understanding and helpful friends and family members, an amazing husband who hasn’t gotten mad for the constant messy house and ramen noodle dinners. plus my amazing team of employees who are all stay at home mamas with their own crazy lives too! i just love you all!
