A few weekends ago, we took Baker to meet Santa and I absolutely died of all the cuteness. Our photographer, Chase Todd Photography, had it all set up at his house and I loved the rustic Christmas theme. This is definitely the way to do Santa pictures, by the way…no long lines or cheap backgrounds, just clean, efficient, comfortable, and cute! We were in and out within 30 minutes and got great pictures!
A few weeks ago, we had Baker’s first milestone pictures, 3 months, taken by our photographer, Chase Todd and I just have to share them! Chase did such a good job capturing her little personality. It fell perfectly between her nap and bottle and she was so happy and alert the whole 30-minute session–definitely a relief for our first real photo session since the hospital! Cory and I had a ball just watching Chase and Baker being silly while she hammed it up for the camera.
Baker’s first Thanksgiving has come and gone and I have to say that I’m a little sad that it’s over. In this season of our life, everything is new with Miss Baker and I love getting to experience firsts with her. Thanksgiving did not disappoint!
Go ahead and officially call me the worst blogger ever! This post is, again, a month behind (seriously, she was 4 MONTHS on 11/8) but I’m having the hardest time adjusting to being a working mom and still finding time to do things like blog or shower regularly.
But, I really want to remember these days so I’m composing this post from the notes I’ve jotted down in my phone the past few weeks. Also, Cory is chiming in today because this mama needed some help!
Three. Three whole months with our gal! Month three was such a bittersweet month. We slowly saw our newborn baby fading away and a smiley, more alert baby take her place. Her personality (which is laid back to the core!) really started to surface the past couple of weeks. I really, really enjoyed the newborn stage and while I know I will enjoy each new stage as they come, my time home with Baker was such a sweet, sweet time for us both. From the peaceful feedings to snuggly naps, I feel like I tried my best to soak up every single second I had while on maternity leave.
