Our First Family Session

These precious moments were captured so beautifully by Laurel at Poppy Lea Photography.

There is never a moment I look back and say,…”dang I wish I never captured that memory.”

SO with that in mind, I needed to hire someone who can freeze in time our little life we MADE!

And I am so glad I did-She was such a joy to work with and I could cry at how perfect they are!

Here are some of our favorites (:

Our Birth Story

As most of you know, my pregnancy seemed like forever....and a day. 

Every day past the due date got harder and harder until walking ended up feeling like I was dragging a ball and chain. A prisoner of my own body!

Thanks bed rest.

I kept thinking she was coming early especially due to the specialists having me believe she was deemed to come early! But...at 42 weeks...She was hanging in there tightly and induction was seeming at this point...really nice! So Friday was the day and it couldn’t come fast enough.

Baby Girl's Name & The Faith that Comes with it

What’s in a name?

Well, my whole life…it was just something to be referred to as.

But if you ask me now, a name is everything. Its your identity that has ability to tell a beautiful story.

8 years ago, Jesus gave me my baby girls name while sitting eyes closed in prayer.

& When that golf ball exploded pink at the gender reveal, I just about lost it.

A BABY GIRL?! I am just beside myself in excitement.

Sorry, Aaron. You dontttttt have much say in the name. haha!

It was beautiful, the name. It spoke to me on such deep levels and I still get butterflies saying it.

My Favorite Pregnancy Must-Haves

I say this with a full heart when I say that I didnt know what I was getting into when I first became pregnant. I always dreamt of being pregnant and of course having kids, but really didn’t know a thing about it.

Sickness? Pshhh…bed rest, movies, and popsicle with a stomach ache. Whatever.

NO. Talk about not wanting to go to sleep because you dont want to wake up and do it over again!

I laugh now.

It took me to the 14th week to start feeling normal again, with the occasional, “babe pull over…i need to find a bush!”

so glamorous.

Because morning sickness is so dang HARD and there is nothing that worked for me other than sleep and carbs. I have little advice. I just lived on applying peppermint and lavender to my temples and under my nose and smelled lemon essential oil whenever i got nauseous! I also took b6 which I cannot recommend enough! I linked that below ;) Just do your best babe, you got this! Call me if you need a smoothie!

So today, I will share the things that I do LOVE that are worth your while no matter how far along you are!
