Miss P at 16 months | personal

Well, time is officially flying. I’m 25 weeks pregnant and Parker is growing so quickly! She’s starting to understand simple commands like, “put that in the trash” and “feed Thomas the train some cheese”. Which is hilarious…because I thought she would feed him a piece of cheese like I feed her…not shove his entire stuffed animal body on top of like 20 pieces of cheese. Ohhh with kids its the simple things that make your day.

Here are a lot of random pics of Parker from the month. We had some nice weather so we got to go outside! We went to feed the ducks (epic mommy fail…I had dreams of amazing photos of her feeding the ducks…with lens flare and cute candid moments… and what we got was Parker just wanting to run straight down a slope and into the water. That just means she was filthy with dirt, no ducks and a lot of tantrums), Miss Caroline and Parker hanging out (or Parker taking away all the toys and then sitting on Caroline), and a playground trip.

2015-01-29_0007I love this photo…it perfectly describes what a mess she is right now. She has her necklaces, made a total mess with all her toys and decided to take a break in the middle of it all.

miss p | 1st birthday party | night circus party

YAYAYYAY!!!

My little girl’s bday party was this past weekend and we had so much fun! A huge thank you to all friends and family that could make it and also a huge thank you to friends and family that wish they could have come.

I had quite the mommy fail moment…Parker had her one year shots 8 days before the party and it was chicken pox and MMR. As the nurse was sticking her legs, she said she would be active with these shots for 7-10 days… SO that meant Miss P was a walking germ for her b-day party! Many of her adorable little friends (younger than a year) were on the safe side and not able to make it. So sad! Well, I won’t make that mistake again haha!

miss parker | 9 months | am + ee

Each month the amazingly talented Amanda Marie Lackey and I are getting together to do photos for her upcoming style blog, and also to get up to date pics of the rapidly growing Parker!! HOLY SMOKES, she’s almost 10 months! People say the same thing all the time… “it will get better” … “the time will fly” … “they grow up so fast”… And I haven’t felt like those sayings are always true in relationships….but when it comes to pregnancy and babies, HECK YES. Even though, when I was sick for the first 20 weeks of pregnancy I just wanted to punch the next person that would say, “it’s totally worth it” … and also I wanted to totally have a freak out when they told me, time and time again that after month 6 it would get easier….at the time I was thinking..I’m BARELY surviving the current 24 hours! How am I going to handle the next few months?!

It’s hard to believe that months have passed since those rough times, but here we are. Going on 10 months and this chunky adorable baby girl is showing so much spunk and spirit, it is such a beautiful experience. She’s a daily reminder to be so thankful for all the blessings we have been given. Indeed it does “get easier and more enjoyable”, and “they grow up so fast” so ENJOY EVERY MINUTE OF IT :D :D

My dear dear dear friend traveled with me to help photo a wedding in Puerto Rico!! We had one day of fun after photographing the delightful couple and we were determined to get some good pics. I wanted to do a collage of all these crazy faces in front of bright walls…but surprisingly it was a bit trickier than we had anticipated! ((hence the many attempts!))

Thank you Brandi for coming with me–even though I did a TERRIBLE job booking our flights….lol (My flight booking privileges have officially been revoked….a four hour flight ended up be a 12 hour journey home!!). Love you Mrs. Patoon. Bahaha

My husband spent the week in the field (Army stuff) so that means us ladies had a week of fun in my home town! I got to snuggle all over these three little babes! The weather warmed so we even did a little mini swim shoot of Parker! hehe

miss parker | five month session | personal

Someone is 5 months!! The things she can now do:

- produce copious amounts of spit trying to make the sound “bbbbbb”
- semi-sit up with assistance
- attempt to “stand”, and always wants to be held up in that position
- laughs at that other baby in the mirror
- attempts to eat her feet and rice cereal. more successful with the feet.
- splashes water all around during bath time
- grabs things and puts them into her mouth. daddy’s ear is still a work in progress.
