It’s sunny today (I’ll kind of sort of try to forget that it was snowing when I went to bed last night) and I am planning on sneaking in work on my website during Cole’s naps 🙌🏼 Equally exciting and terrifying to be transitioning to be more of a portrait based business - but I can not wait for this next phase ☺️
My first wedding of 2018 is on Saturday, and I’m sitting over here practically giddy about it!!!! I’ve loved this time off with Cole - but I am very excited to be back to work ☺️ Happy wedding week, Brad and Veronica!!!!!
Dreaming of this prickly pear margarita right about now. Mother Nature, get your ACT together!! 😡❄️
How we #Friyay 😏👶🏼😴 *edit* I was going to do the hashtag #fridayafternaps as a play on #fridayafterclass - and guys.... there are only 400 posts with the hashtag Fridayafterclass 😱 is FAC not a thing anymore!!?! Was that just an Iowa thing????
“Let me tell you bout my beeeest friennnnd” 🎵🎶
Happy opening day, Cubbies!!!! Remember when we won the World Series and it was nicer the day after, in November, than it is today? ❄️⚾️❄️
We woke up to an inch of snow... BUT it’s supposed to be in the 70s by the end of the week 😱 (and then drop back down to the 40s but we aren’t going to think about that). I’m having conflicting emotions... continue being annoyed and wondering why I live somewhere that can have an inch of snow on the ground mid April... OR be elated that what I consider to be SUMMER weather is right around the corner?! Gahhhhhhhh SO MANY EMOTIONS.
Two months ago today. This is what I saw from the operating table when I turned my head just moments after Cole was born. Today I used this moment to calm some unexpected anxiety that hit me during my MRIs. It wasn’t a full blown anxiety attack - but more a surge of emotions. Laying on that table today I was brought back to a very specific moment in my life that I’d rather not think about too much. I had forgotten about how, when i had my MRI at 37 weeks, each time the machine would start clanking the baby inside of me would kick like crazy because of the noise. I was so worried I was scaring the baby, and felt guilty that I was subjecting it to this awful sound for 45 minuets... when i was convinced that nothing was wrong. In hindsight - I’m very glad I had the MRI, and I knew they wouldn’t have had me do it if there was ANY risk to the baby... but those feelings of guilt just came back in full force today. I knew that to get through the next 3 hours I’d have to shake it off - so I literally thought “happy thoughts” (If you watch my stories you know I recently watched Hook - so I’m guessing that’s where that idea came from lol). This photo represents the tippy top of my happy thoughts list. Cody has been an amazing dad to Cole, but an even better partner to me through all of this, and I couldn’t be more grateful. BTW after thinking happy thoughts and calming myself, I began to distract myself by seeing if I could do complex math problems in my head. why? I have no idea. But it distracted me... and also made me realize that a cody should prob be the one who helps Cole with any math homework 😬🤷🏻♀️ #sharetheeverymom #twomonthold #chicagolifestylephotographer #thisisms #csection #theviewfromhere #mamastakenote
How I feel about it being FRIDAY!!!!! Although tomorrow is going to be filled with three hours worth of MRIs for me (thanking God im not claustrophobic) 😑 The weekend means some much loved family time. This weekend we also have a friend coming into town which makes it extra special. I have a feeling while I’m gone tomorrow the guys (including this little one) will be glued to The Masters. Anyone else have golf on non stop the next few days?
Give me all the squishy babies ☺️ an oldie but s goodie from Miss Meadow’s one year session.
When i was pregnant I googled “can baby kicks break your ribs?” Because... OW. Now I get to see these little feet kick away all day long, and it is one of my very favorite things.
