Little White Bear

August 18, 2014 at 10:12 am

I’ve been wanting to do this shoot for awhile, ever since my mom sent these super cute moccasins that she did the bead work on for my little! I knew I had this adorable tee-pee at my in-laws’ that the grandkids all love to play in! I just needed to wait for my husband to come and help since this little guy doesn’t sit still for very long! But he did amazing and was such a cute little indian! Now I know this kid just seems too pale to work for this shoot. But he is 1/16th Shoshone Indian! I say it counts! My cousin gave him the little nickname of ‘Little White Bear’, which is just perfect for him nowadays since he’s taken to bear crawling when he’s not on the carpet!

Mr A is 11 months!

August 6, 2014 at 10:00 pm

So I’m a few days behind! but I’ve been busy editing lots of great sessions! But I was able to get in a quick 11 month shoot of my little guy! He is EVERYWHERE these days! I’m about to nickname him Speedy Gonzales cause I’ll put him down and if I do any sort of task other than watching his every move, chances are I’m running after him to save him from pain or some other furry creature from pain. Any moment I’m not watching his every move, I’m either feeding this chubster or baby proofing! He’s crusin’ these days and will push off from surfaces, hang for a moment and then fall to the floor….good thing he’s not far from it! Walking is really just a matter of him realizing he can actually do it. And because walking will mean more independence from Mom, his severe attachment to me might buy me a couple more months! This exhausted mommy can only hope!!

A few of his favorite things: Mom (he’s a bit obsessed these days!), cars, balls, ears (yes, ears) and the color orange! He’s gravitated towards all things orange for the last several months! However, Sweet potatoes are a No-No food! All other food he LOVES!! Can’t you tell, my Tubby-Chubby loves food?! Oh and by the way, if he ever head butts you gently or not-so-gently, it’s actually his way of giving you some love!

9 months!

June 5, 2014 at 2:16 pm

It’s been quite the wild ride we’ve gone through in the past 9 months, but we’re all the better for it! Especially this little guy who continues to amaze me and spread his happy personality everywhere we go! It warms my heart when people stop what they’re doing to come closer to see this happy baby! Sure it makes my errands take 30% longer….but it is so worth it to see the impact that this amazing little soul has on others. Even though he is a lot more work than the others were, he truly is my sunshine. All three of them are! I grow more and more in love with these 3 kids every day and I am so lucky to be their mama!

 Yes, he is on the move! Not fully crawling just yet, but he sure gets around. Got to keep my eye on him always! If you look real close you can see that little tooth that caused mama to lose a month of good sleep!

Mr A is 8 months!

May 2, 2014 at 3:29 pm

Took a little time yesterday to document my son’s 8 month mark! Here is a few I wanted to share! I wish I had been better about taking monthly pictures of my other kids. I love looking back on the previous months to see how he’s grown! Though they are all miracles, he took his sweet time getting here and we had to work hard to prepare his way.

Ask me about the special discounts you can get when you bundle a month-to-month, or milestone photo package. They grow too fast, capture it while you can!

My baby is getting big!

April 2, 2014 at 9:39 am

Hard to believe he was a preemie, this lil guy seems to be growing every day and it makes me want to cry but also shout for joy! I’m so happy and relieved that he is healthy and growing wonderfully, but he’s my last baby and I kinda want him to stay a baby! Yesterday we celebrated his 7 months in this great, big beautiful world by doing a little session that I’d share with you all! This little guy is my sunshine, he’s rarely sad, and always bestows plenty of smiles! He is loving life these days! We’ll see if that keeps up once he starts cutting teeth! He’s sitting like a pro now-a-days and loves to stand at the couch and play! He’s getting to the point where he gets excited and tries to jump! Don’t worry Mom stays close by to catch him when the excitement is just too much for his balance! Thanks for letting this mama brag about her cutie pie!

3 months Mr A!

December 12, 2013 at 1:31 pm

My entire life has changed in the past 3 months, definitely for the better! I wouldn’t want to imagine my life without him! He consumes nearly every minute of my day and it’s such a different feeling than with my other two. maybe it’s because I’m a more confident mom! But our struggle with infertility has definitely made me soak up every little thing this baby and my other kids do. I find myself purposefully memorizing details of our daily lives, and thanking our Father in Heaven for each one of our little miracles! My memory isn’t so good, that is why I’m extremely grateful I can capture these moments in time to preserve them forever!
