1st Family Photoshoot

First I have to say, thank you to CC Curtis with Clearly Candid Photography! She did an amazing job, and the pictures turned out more beautiful than I could have imagined. We SO appreciate her. She has a heart of gold, and was incredibly generous with her time. CC's mom used to live where I work. CC was such a dedicated daughter and visited almost daily. That's pretty rare in my industry. We developed a friendship during the time she spent at my work. She became a big part of our work family. We are so blessed that she came into our lives.

These pictures were taken just a few days shy of Liam's 10 month old birthday. I know, I'm a bad mom. Waiting 10 months, before I had my son's life professionally documented. Oh Well. I'm so happy with these photo's, they make up for all the guilt I was feeling.

CC was great at catching good smiles of Liam. As you know, Liam is a very observant, serious, and most the time stoic baby. Just taking in his surroundings. He saves all of his smiles for mommy and daddy at home where he is most comfortable. If we are out, there is too much for him to look at and you have to really WORK to get a smile. Luckily, CC was so patient and she was able to capture his few precious smiles. Thank You!

It was such a beautiful day, and these pictures are exactly what I dreamed of as a little girl.  Yes, when I was a little girl the only thing I wanted (besides being a famous actress) was falling in love, and becoming a mommy. My dream has come true! Thanks for capturing it all!

Sick of being Sick!

Ugh. The stomach flu. How I hate you, and what you've done to my perfect little boy. Before you came around we slept through the night, loved to laugh, play, and eat. Now we can't do any of those things, and I'm mad. You've caused sleep deprivation to take over our home, and made being mommy, not so fun. You almost made me yell at my precious boy! Please go away so I can have my sanity back, and so my little boy can laugh again. Pretty Please.

The Worm

Liam has officially started "trying" to crawl. However, it looks more like the 80's dance move "The Worm". He hasn't got the whole coordination of hands and legs yet. However, he is getting REALLY good at pulling up on furniture. He should be walking in no time. AHHH! I'm not ready for all of this!

4th of July!!!

4th of July Celebration
This was the first weekend Matt and I had off together since Liam was born. I had a four day weekend, and it was glorious! I could definitely be a stay at home mom. I loved being with Liam. He is so fun!
We went to Matt's parents house for a weekend of fun. It started out with a BBQ and swimming, we went to my aunts house for some swim time, and ended it with more swimming and fireworks. Liam and I didn't quite make it to the fireworks. They didn't start until 10:15pm and we just couldn't stay up that late. But, Matt was able to go with our nieces. It was a wonderful weekend, and I will always cherish these memories with my new little family.

Nakie Baby!

Doesn't it look like we put rubberbands on his arms and legs? He is so chunky, and I love it! I wouldn't have it any other way!
