Being your mommy is a dream come true and so much more than I ever expected! I am beyond excited every morning to walk into your room, take you up out of your crib, shower you with kisses and see how our day unfolds together! As I pick you up each day, I feel you getting heavier and see your baby face maturing into a little girl, I am reminded how quickly you are growing up and I feel desperate to soak up your sweetness! During the quiet moments of our day when you are sleeping in my arms or playing peacefully by yourself, I find myself staring at you with a smile on my face and feeling so proud to be your mommy! I love you!
I can’t believe last year at this time I was starting to pack my hospital bag, we were finishing up your nursery and anxiously awaiting your arrival! Now, we are listening to you say mama and dada, watching you get ready to take your first steps and planning your first birthday party-how time flies when you are having fun!
One of your favorite things to do is play in bed with mommy and daddy! You love to play peek-a-boo under the blankets with us and jump on to our fluffy comforter! It makes me so happy to see you smile and enjoy playing. I remember when we got this outfit as a gift, it looked so big to me, I thought you would never fit into it. And here you are, fitting into it and growing up before my eyes. Part of me would love to freeze time and keep you my little baby, but the other part of me is having way too much fun watching you grow into an amazing little girl!
Life could not get more beautiful then it is right now! These have been the best 11 months of my life!
There is something so sweet and angelic about little girls! I could have cuddle Baby Ashlyn all day-she is so tiny and delicate! I loved photographing her beautiful 9 day old face this morning!
Happy Easter little bunny, we love you more than you will ever know and savor each sweet moment we have with you! You, daddy and I had so much fun last evening taking these cute pictures, and even though when you are 16 you will probably hate me for them, it will be so worth it because you look adorable! Love you baby!
We hope everyone enjoys a special Easter with their families!
Here are a few of my favorites from a very fun session we had at Palmetto Bluff this past weekend. This family was wonderful to photograph and their children were naturals in front of the camera! Please visit their website Race for Ellie to learn more about the foundation they have set up to fund research for Mitochondrial Disease.
You lifted your arms up to me today and my heart just melted! You are a true angel……
What a perfect weekend with our little babe!
