Happy Birthday

Have a wonderful day!
We love you!

it seems like just yesterday...

he was 9 days old.

i was messy-crying every five minutes.
i was so fragile. physically. emotionally.
i was sleep deprived.
i was falling googly-eyed in-love with this boy.
i was learning to breastfeed.
i was starting to understand what the love of a parent feels like.
i was feeling so overwhelmed in the best way.

In 5 short days this sweet newborn will be SIX months old.


Where has the time gone...

Rowan is teething like crazy.
Chewing, drooling, and fussing a bit.

photoshop fun...

I finally had time (made time) to start learning Photoshop.
It is very detailed, and can be so overwhelming.
It has me so excited about photography again...

Couldn't resist starting with this sweet picture!

jump till you drop...

this was hilarious to Alan and I.
Rowan was bouncing away while we were
packing up to go to Alabama for New Years.
I noticed Rowan's eyes getting heavy and eventually he fell
asleep just like that.

Cousins at Christmas!

i just love this picture of my three favorite boys.
Rowan loves his cousins...
and well they kinda love him too.
i think.

from the top of your head...

to those sweet little toes.

i love you!


yes, you are.

i love how you are...
 starting to explore everything.
touching everything.
grabbing our faces.
jumping in your jumperoo.
starting to sit up by yourself.
jibber-jabbering all the time.
smiling at strangers.
blowing bubbles.
noticing when i leave the room.
loving your new toys from christmas.
bringing a smile to my face.
amused at yourself when you see yourself in the mirror.
loving your baby food.
sleeping so good.
cuddling more.

"they" say, you love your child more everyday.
with us lately. 
it's MORE every minute.
we love you. more. 

5.5 months

laying on mommy's quilt from when i was a baby.

loving you more everyday!

oh. dear.

sweet. boy. momma. loves. you. so. much.
