Yes, it’s been over a month since I’ve posted. And yes, it is completely because I am soaking up every second of this sweet season with my baby girl. Our little lady has already brought us so much joy in her two months outside the womb! I LOVE being her mama. This morning, I rocked her by the Christmas tree and cried happy, ugly, emotional tears. She’s a little picture of how faithful God is, and our hearts are full.

All my days are blurry. They’re full of SO MUCH, and they’re going way too fast. Here’s a glimpse into our lives the last month. ❤️ (And by glimpse, I mean a giant heap of photos.)

We took family pictures with our ever-growing families.

We celebrated our first Thanksgiving as a family of three.

Annie posed for lots of pictures. 🤗

Jack continues to exceed all my expectations in the role of big brother. He has been SO GOOD.

I’m so excited to watch them grow up together. Their relationship already gives me all the feels. 😭

Andrew continues to steal both our hearts. ❤️😍

Annie was super smiley and super sleepy for her first visit at church.

And it was fitting, of course, that her first restaurant visit was Longhorn. ☺️

If you follow me on Instagram, I apologize for the heap of Insta stories. Except not really, because look at her.

I did not know it was possible for a newborn to smile this much. It’s like she’s a photographer’s kid or something. 😜

She even smiled in our group pic at her first Christmas party. 😂

But yes, she cries too. Lol.

Styling.

This peace sign kills me. 😂

She slept through her entire meeting with Santa, but it was the best. (Super cute Santa at North Park mall by the way.)

We’ve been on top of our monthly pictures so far, but to be fair, we’ve only had two. Haha. I’m already sad at how fast she’s growing!

Apologies for all the baby talk. It’s our life right now, and it’s awesome. 😉 Have a happy week, friends!

The Final Countdown

One week from today, you’ll be in my arms.

You’ll get to see your Daddy’s handsome face for the first time.

You’ll get to meet your grandparents, your aunts, your uncles, your cousins – all the people who have been praying for you and loving you so well already.

One week from today, I imagine the Lord will be smiling as the little family He’s creating begins. ❤️

Enormous thanks to Kristi Cormack and Alyssa Ulrich for taking these photos for us. (And to Andrew, who took the last three pictures and graciously endures all my photoshoots. 😉)

ONE MORE WEEK. ❤️

A Pregnant Pause

Last week, I finished all my shoots and editing for the year. 🙌🏼 The past several days have been spent cleaning and re-organizing my entire house. It has been the most exhilarating feeling ever. 😉 I am SO excited to finally have some down time again! With just under 4 weeks until our little Annie arrives, I am planning to push the pause button and soak up all the free time I can. And while I’m still working one job, it’s nice to have put a hold on the CaitPhoto side for now. I plan to clean and nap as much as possible the last few weeks before baby joins us. 😉

The past month has been full of baby showering, date nights, and nursery work. I can’t believe we only have a month left before she’s here!

These sweet beauties threw us the BEST baby shower! We are so thankful for all the sweet people who already love our Annie!

Mom-in-law strikes again. 😉

I’m at a party if there are Uncle Mitch cookies. 🍪

I love this sweet BFF so much!

All the feels.

My not-so-little, little sister looked so pretty. What a grown-up. 😭

I win at in-law family. 😉

Sweet Mama. 💕

People who get me gift me things like this. ❤️ (Thanks, Molly!)

Having a moment with Goldie. 😍

Love these cutie coworkers of mine!

This picture makes my heart happy. I have so many good memories with these babes! 💕

It was such a fun surprise to have my cousin and aunt come out from Georgia!

And finally, Annie’s namesake – just being the cutest. 🤗

In other news, we’ve been eating out entirely too much, but we figure we’d better cherish it while we can! 😉 Halls Pizza Kitchen was a winner!

And Flint is always a winner for breakfast.

We’re still exercising (every now and then lol) to keep those calories at bay. 😉

Baby laundry is so much cuter than adult laundry.

I’m also soaking up the snuggles with this pooch. His world is about to turn upside down. 😉

I waited my whole pregnancy for the fair to arrive. 🙌🏼

And it did not disappoint. 😉

I’ll do a full post on Annie’s nursery when it’s completely finished, but here’s a little peek for now. 😊 (Jack is so proud.)

Happy Sunday, loves!
