Two Months New

It has been two months since Bea was born.  It’s hard to believe that it has been that long and yet I can barely remember what life was like without her.  Partly because I’m so sleep deprived that I can’t remember much of anything!  Um, was I supposed to call you back?  Sorry!

It is amazing to me that in just eight weeks she can go from breathing air for the first time to smiling at us.  From not being able to see to cooing at toys.  She watches us and makes her sweet little sounds.

The boys are in love with her.  We all are.

She’s still so small and delicate.  She still scrunches her whole body into a ball when I pick her up.  She still has that newborn cry.  And yet, she has grown so much.  Her personality is emerging every day.  Her eyes get brighter and her naps get shorter. She is with me all the time.  I have only left her once and that was not easy (but we both survived)!

I love how she is growing but don’t want her to change.  She’s perfect just the way she is.  Happy 2 month birthday sweet little girl!

Valentine’s Mini Portrait Sessions

I have been busy with the new baby and enjoying my time with my family but I am excited to get back to work too and just in time for some winter studio photos!

I will be hosting a mini session portrait day at my studio in Peterborough on Sunday, January 29th!!  These will be on  a clean white background set up for some fresh fun shots of your children (ages 6 months and up).  Maybe your little one is having a birthday soon?

Images will be ready just in time for a fun Valentine’s surprise!  What better gift than some pictures of your special little ones!

Also, I’m doing a new “refer a friend” program!  If you recommend a friend (they have to be a new client and they have to participate in this session) then you receive a free digital file from your session!  That’s a $60 value!!  So spread the word!

Life Is Sweet

Found this quote and loved it.

A daughter is the happy memories of the past, the joyful moments of the present, and the hope and promise of the future.  ~Author Unknown

Ending a Year

If there’s ever a time to be neglectful of blog updates it’s during the holidays when you have a newborn.

Whew, it’s been a busy month with very little sleep!

I made a slideshow for my family of our year in 2011.  It’s amazing to see how much the kids have grown and changed in these 12 months.  Click on the picture to play:

Happy New Year!!

PS. If  it looks like Atticus has a black eye in this picture it’s because he does.  The night before we were going to take these pictures for our Christmas card he decided to jump from one bed to the other.  He didn’t make it.  I thought about rescheduling our pictures but decided that this is just us.  This is who we are and why not just go with it.  So here we are :)
