Abbey’s life in pics


a lot of firsts have been happening in our house. it was a surprising morning a few weeks back when i rolled over in bed to see this image with blurry eyes (yes, she sleeps in our room). of course i ran to get the camera! i think the image is just as blurry as my eyes were. today we welcomed the first tooth and although she wont let me get a picture of it just yet, i am determined so stay posted.

soon after that came the crawling….

…and the wave…

…and boo boo…

…and this one just because i like it.

she’s 12 weeks old and i haven’t posted a thing. bad blogger mommy. i’m getting back into the swing of things, but i have to admit, the time off has been such a blessing. motherhood is so much more wonderful than i ever could have dreamed of. i’m cherishing every minute of her sweet little face.
here ya go…

thank you to heather golka for one of my favorite pictures.

thank you to jenn hopkins  for this!

only a photographer mother lets her baby cry while she runs to get the camera.

so here it is…back in the beginning of april, drew and i found out we can reproduce. come december we will be adding a baby to the mix. many of you (that don’t follow facebook) have been asking for updates, so here they are from start to….now.

my family headed to the strawberry festival in february for a concert so i decided to bring along the camera in hopes to capture some nightime lights of the rides and vendors. i wish cameras had “smell-a-picture”. i love fairs and all the delicious popcorn-corndog-cotton candy mix of smells!

this one is my favorite of the day.

it feels like its only been a couple of months, but on september 14th, drew and i were officially married for a year-and a great one at that. at the risk of sounding cliche’, i am more in love today than i was when i married him. i am so grateful for such a loyal husband-and funny one to-boot!
with our work hard, play hard philosophy, we decided to treat ourselves and took the weekend off and headed to sanibel island. relaxing and quiet?…yes. plenty to do and see?…no. oh well, we have fun wherever we go.

i love it when she comes back home. i think i go through withdrawl when she leaves. kel, cade, and i made our way over to the zoo once day last week. cade had a blast!

sharks and fish!
