Five. Five whole months with our precious Baker Bea. Five months, on December 8th, with our joyful, smiley, happy girl. I blinked and my baby is approaching half a year old. Cue all the tears over here!
(Cory took these pictures hence the crazy hair and no bow but that smile!)
Four. Oh hey, month 4 (She was 4 months on November 8th and my goal is to to get caught up over Christmas break!). You were such a fun but difficult month full of all kinds of new adventures! We have been slowly adjusting to life as a full-time working parents and just when things started to feel normal, we were thrown for a bit of a loop. Our first sitter quit unexpectedly quit on us on Halloween, but thankfully our friends and family stepped up to help until we were able to find another sitter. I feel like this was the first month that we struggled. Our sleepy-all-the-time newborn is gone and we now have a very active, needs-much-more-attention baby. We love how fun this stage is but there were some really long days adjusting. I also felt like my hormones were the most out of whack this month. It could have been Cory’s busy work schedule, but there were many days that I felt very overwhelmed. But, we all survived and made some wonderful 4-month memories!
With a whopping 4 days to spare, this mama got her Christmas cards in the mail! Whew! Talk about a tight deadline! I’ve had them for about two weeks now but we ended up going out of town last weekend and it threw me off my schedule a little.
Are you tired of hearing about our wonderful photographer yet? I hope not because I have to rave again about how good Chase Todd did with our Christmas tree farm session and designing our cards for us. I typically like to do that myself but it sure was nice not having to this year!
