Amelia- 10.5 months old

I can't believe how big my little girl has gotten. Almost 11 months old! How is it possible I am already planning her 1st birthday party?? I get teared up when I think that she's almost not a baby anymore..

I got her some rainbow striped leg warmers at the craft fair yesterday. I know it's July, but they are so freakin cute. and check out this hat my sister made.

It matches perfect! I love her mischievous little grin and her chubby cheeks :)

My sister also made this tutu for her. I think it suits her perfectly.

She really just fills my soul with love every time I look at her. I can't believe she is mine. My sweet, perfect, adorable girl :)
And I'll leave you with this picture- Amelia showing off her goods.

Gotta love those cheeks!!!

Things I'm loving right now

-This weather. Humidity is gone (for now) and it's so beautiful outside.

- That I got the lighting for my studio today. So. Excited.

- Newborns. I did my second newborn session yesterday. I feel really good about it. Here's a peek:

I love that this job allows me to get my newborn fix without having to actually have a newborn. It's much better this way. Go here to see the rest.

- Tastee Freeze. More specifically, their Strawberry cheesecake hard ice cream. Best. Stuff. Ever.

- The upcoming holiday weekend. It will be much fun with great Friends.

- Birthday party planning. I can't believe my baby will be 1 in just 2 short months.

What are you loving now??

Father's Day

Today is Ben's first Father's Day and to celebrate, we had lunch for him and my brother at my mom's. It was a wonderful meal and I ate way too much, as always. Later, we went over to my friend Sam's house for a dip in the pool and to hang out since she and her parents just got back from a vacation to England and Ireland. (yes, a tad jealous here) Even though Amelia was pretty fussy and cranky and I got this look a lot

it was a good time and I got some good sun which is always nice :)

Wait, here's a smile

and my two loves :)

The one thing that did keep Mia smiling were these two characters

Rudy- He would sneak (and by sneak I mean deliberately walk up and lick as many times as possible before someone yelled at him to stop) as many baby kisses as possible. He is so funny. He also LOVES to swim. Especially jumping in the pool and splash everyone.

And Buddy, who is too scared of Mia to get within 3 feet of her and who is also terrified of swimming. So he stands on the outside and catches water in his mouth that you splash at him.
All in all it was a very relaxing day and I hope Ben enjoyed his first Father's Day. I must say, Amelia has the best Daddy I could have ever imagined. Ben loves her so much it overwhelms my heart to see it. I mean, I knew the guy was a softy deep down, but this
this is something, you can't even explain. Pure, true, love. He tells me all the time just how incredible he thinks she is and I have to agree. She's amazing. And I'm not sure, but I think she really thinks he's awesome too
That's one lucky girl and daddy. And I am the luckiest of all, cause I get both of them. Happy Father's Day Ben. You are the best :)

Summer :)

Aside from the blistering heat and the overwhelming humidity, I. love. summer. I love it even more now that I get to share it with the most beautiful little girl on the planet.

just watching her soak it all in, the outside, the sun, the....bugs (she tries to eat them) just fills me with this passion and zest for life. There so much I can't wait to do with her, and so much I can't wait to show her.

Yesterday she got to experience the splash park that right next door. And boy did that girl have a ball.

We will without a doubt be spending more time at the splash park. I could never get enough of her smiles and giggles. They make my heart swoon.
And check out these thighs! Aren't squishy babies the best?? I could just eat them up!

More summer posts to come. Promise :)
