family photos

I had been wanting to take family pictures since Scarlett was born, but after looking for photographers I could never bring myself to pay the big bucks. I totally think pictures are worth the money, but I couldn't justify the high price tag when I knew other things (like diapers) were more important. So I enlisted my sister and we went out and did a few snapshots outside. I am so glad we did, I know I will cherish these first family pictures forever. It also happend to be the Saturday before our Scarlett girls blessing, which makes them even more special. 

Thanks Jenny for taking these... you are totally a natural photographer!


a 1 month babe

I'm about three weeks late but I didn't not want to post these sweet pictures of a 1 month miss Scarlett. I wrote this in my journal on that day....

      One month ago we had our beautiful baby... I'm so glad we have survived! We love you Scarlett and you make our family feel whole. I'm so thankful and grateful I get to be your mama and that you are so willing to love me through this big learning curve. 

It has been such a fun month filled with more love than I could imagine. There has also been lots of tears, so many diapers, and not so much sleep. I wouldn't change any of it. 

we love you Scarlett girl.
