Well friends, I can’t believe it’s already here, but it’s time for me to officially post my maternity leave! With our sweet baby due any day now, I’ve been on unofficial maternity leave for the past couple of weeks (our babies just normally come early!), but now it’s official, and it’s so crazy to think that baby Goosie could be here any day! I will be on maternity leave through the end of March for lifestyle sessions, and through the end of May for weddings.
Brynna turns ONE today!!! I can’t get enough of her crinkly nose, dimpled cheek smile, and those piercing blue eyes! This year has been full of ups and downs, little sleep (there IS such a thing as a good night sleep right!? I haven’t had one in over a year, so I’m starting to doubt that it ever existed…), and so much laughter and joy and love I can’t even put it into words! I remember when Wyatt turned one, I was so very sad that the year had flown by so quickly. With Brynna Kate, part of me aches to hold her as a newborn again, but I’m actually more excited for what’s to come!
For the last couple of weeks I have asked Wyatt what he wanted to be for Halloween (throwing out many, many ideas), and EVERY time he said, “Mm…no. Just Dy-ditt.” (Wyatt-ese for Wyatt) Even after seeing Brynna dressed up today, he stood firm, which is just adorable to me. So, here’s our little giraffe and her big brother, dressed as himself! ;-) Have you ever seen a cuter giraffe or big brother?? I think not!
Last week I shared a bit of my heart as I talked about why things are quieter over here on the blog. The love and support y’all gave was so encouraging, so thank you to everyone who took the time to comment or even text or email me! It meant the world. :-) I adore being a momma and I know it’s the most important job that I will ever have, so I don’t take it lightly. That being said, I thought it was about time I share a quick update on the kids with you! If you follow me on Instagram, you catch a peek of them now and then, but a lot of our day to day happenings are over on our personal Instagram (feel free to follow along there).
I am so thrilled that you have found your way here! I’m Karen, a wedding and lifestyle photographer with a passion for ice cream, dogs, and Gilmore Girls. My blog is a place where I can share love stories with you, whether it’s an engagement, a wedding day, or the welcoming of a new baby! It is also a scrapbook of my life and a little glimpse into our home, our love, and our family. I hope you will enjoy following along!
