TWO months old today!! ❤️ Leighton is such a sweet baby...she loves to smile, especially when I pull out the camera! She loves being with mommy, watching her brothers, and play time with daddy before her bath. We don’t spend a lot of time in her room right now (as she’s still sleeping next to my side of the bed), but when we do go in it she seriously lights up and starts smiling at everything! It’s like she knows ‘my mama went crazy in here and it’s all for me!’ 😂 Everyone says she looks just like her brothers, especially Cam. I love that she recognizes our faces now, and her sweet little coo’s just melt my heart. And if you couldn’t tell by now...I am not enjoying dressing her one bit. 🤷🏻♀️😉 (I couldn’t pick just 1 of these pictures because of her cute different expressions, so you get both! 💕)
I was 7 days postpartum in this picture and today I almost...almost...decided not to post it. I almost picked a different picture without me in it because of my puffy and swollen face. But then I reflected on this past year and what I’m most thankful for and said to heck with not posting it. This past year has brought many highs and some low’s for us, like most, and has taught us a lot. We’ve done a lot of growing (the two little boys in the middle almost too much), traveled and made so many wonderful new memories, overcome and survived difficult parenting moments, and today all I can think about is how grateful I am for our health, our home, my hardworking husband, all of our supportive family and friends, and my virtual business that has continued to allow me to not miss a minute with my children. MOST of all...our greatest gift this year has been our sweet baby girl, who we prayed so so hard for. The missing piece to our puzzle that has made our family 5x sweeter. I look at her and the boys and am reminded how incredibly blessed I am. I’m also super thankful for this community right here and for following my little corner of this crazy internet world ❤️ Love you all!! Happy Thanksgiving!
I can’t even handle this girl 💙💗 Sunday snuggles (and two napping toddlers) don’t get much better than this...
“I won’t go crazy buying bows” she said...which happens to top the charts for the most untrue statement I’ve ever made. 💗🤷🏻♀️🎀
Currently: Constantly going back and forth between wanting time to stand still and also being really really tired but the happiest yet ❤️ You are the absolute sweetest our little miss Leighton...💕
Happy Friday from my little fall babe! 🍁🥰 Can’t believe she is already 5 weeks old!!
Never have I ever seen a cuter toothless smile... 😍😍 Happiest. Kid. Ever 💙
I blinked and our little Leighton is ONE month old today on Halloween! 🖤 I was so nervous about having a 3rd and how we would all adjust, but it’s been smoother than I expected (that’s not to say the first few weeks weren’t total survival mode) and now we’re getting into a nice groove. I can’t imagine our life without this little princess...we are all so smitten with her. Her favorite things are being held and bath time. 💕 She has been giving me some longer sleep stretches at night🙌🏼 and naps really well on the go (stroller, car seat, or when I wear her!) We found out pretty early on that she has reflux, but since then we’ve made some adjustments and she is so much more comfortable and content now! 😊 The boys have been calling her “cutie cutie” lately...something that Grayson randomly started and Camden has also picked up. Girlfriend is also already out of newborn diapers and clothes, which makes me tear up a bit since she’s our last. We love you so much, baby girl!! Thank you for completing our family! ❤️
I know I keep sharing pics from our newborn session but you mamas get it ❤️ I just love this one SO much because it shows exactly how the boys have been with Leighton...so gentle and loving. They are so sweet to her, I can hardly handle it. And her little expression and bow dress...😭☺️ My heart is so full amidst all the chaos!
✨ My precious little girl, you are everything I dreamed of and more ✨
They are the beat of my heart. The purpose in my step. And the loves of my life👦🏻👦🏻👧🏻 Excuse me while I go stare at this picture for hours on end and sob happy tears... ❤️😭 photo by: @pattirosephotography
💚💙 There’s more to life than scaring! 💙💚 Happy (early) Halloween from our little monsters!!
2 weeks old today and I decided these pictures needed a permanent spot on my feed...😭🎀 We are so, so in love with you sweet baby girl!!!
Messy hair, no makeup, minimal sleep...all worth it for those early morning snugs with my girl 💕☺️ Her little face...I can’t 😭
Leighton’s first (of many I’m sure) OOTD! 🤗 We made it through week 1 at home with 3 littles under 5, so that deserves some celebrating! And by celebrating, I mean 1 white claw & an early bedtime tonight... 😂🤷🏻♀️🎉
To my baby girl on her due date-It’s been one week since you’ve arrived into the world, but I feel like I’ve known you my whole life. You are absolutely perfect and have made our family so much sweeter by being in it. Your 2 brothers will always be your biggest supporters, they are so protective and smitten with you already. I love how you already have Daddy wrapped around your finger and having you, my beautiful girl, as my daughter is a dream come true... I will never stop loving you, and will always be your best friend💞✨
Dear neighbors: The circus is not in town, the Krysh family just decided to go on our first family walk yesterday! ☺️❤️ Dear future boyfriends of Leighton: Judging by the amount of time I actually got to push the stroller (about 30 seconds) these two brothers of hers are fiercely protective of her. Good luck ❤️
The boys meeting their sister for the first time at the hospital... 😭💗😭 These pictures make me want to cry! They kissed her, sang lullabies to her (watch Grayson sing to her here!), held her and told her all about their toys, and picked out a teddy bear for her. She is so so lucky to have them 🥰🥰
Here we go, heading HOME with our princess!! 🎀🎉 The boys are so excited to give her a “tour” of her room, and I can’t wait to soak up every minute with all 3 of my babies!! 💗
My beautiful baby GIRL💓😭 You have no idea how much we prayed for you! ✨
