Things I Don’t Want to Forget

-Annie’s first (and only) concert in the womb was shortly after we found out we were pregnant. We saw my favorite, John Mayer, and our girl was born on John Mayer’s birthday!

-When she came into the world, the song Eye of the Tiger was playing in the operating room. It was unplanned perfection.

-Sometimes I look at her and just start crying because I love her so much. Everyone is completely right when they say you have no idea how much love your heart can feel until you meet your child.

-She smiles a TON. It might be gas, but who cares, it makes for cute pictures. πŸ˜‰

-We have been blown away by how nice people have been to us. 😭 We’ve been overwhelmed with meals and gifts and generosity, and it makes my heart swell!

-Annie and I have watched almost every episode of Frasier and The Office during our maternity leave so far. Maybe twice. We also enjoy Planet Earth. Sometimes she’ll just fall asleep in my arms while we watch Netflix, and I don’t care at all that we’re being bums. (…I may never go back to work…)

-I have never been prouder of Jack than I have this past few weeks. I was a little nervous with how hyper he can get around new people, but he has been an absolute champ. He has adjusted so much faster than we thought he would, and he has beenΒ super gentle and sweet. He LOVES her!Β πŸ’•

We made them Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf for Halloween. πŸ˜‚

-I toyed around with the idea of shooting our own newborn session, but I am forever glad we had photos done with Trish. It was so nice to have someone else behind the camera, and I am OBSESSED with these photos! She’s a magician. πŸ™ŒπŸΌΒ (Go like her Facebook page here!)

I didn’t know Andrew could get any more attractive, but it happened. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜

Don’t you just want to squeeze those cheeks?!

This. Photo. Is. Everything. πŸ’•

There is nothing cuter than a pair of baby feet.

One of my “push presents” from Andrew (or “pull present” I guess since I had a C-section) was this necklace with her name and birthday. 😍

Life is busier and less busy at the same time right now. It’s weird, joyful, exhausting, fulfilling, challenging, and amazing. I love being a mom. Every now and then, I look down at her beautiful face and start tearing up remembering all that led to her little life. God is SO GOOD. πŸ’•

Happy Monday, friends!
