Instagrams (April)

 The last day in April came and went and I totally forgot to post my instagrams for April. I had it planned on my blog calendar (yes, I even have a plan for blogging); but posted someone cuter! I was going to skip posting April instagram’s simply because well it’s not April anymore. However I got over my type “A” personality and decided to post them even if we are in May. Pictures, especially these, help document my everyday moments that I want to remember.

eating breakfast together.

her hair is getting so long and i love it in a pony tail.

when I looked at her from the kitchen I could not believe how much older she looks to me.

I love the chair she is sitting in that we are borrowing from the Millens!date with Grande (my mom) at Starbucks and then a trip to Trader Joes! Myla loves pushing her own cart.A trip to Leesburg VA with Amanda Austin Interiors.

Another date to Starbucks. We went to talk about myla’s question, “How can we hear God if he is in heaven?”

an Easter picture of the two of us.Easter egg competition: Lyndon won!!Myla loves her babies!!!new wall art by Made by Girl in pink of course.Trip to visit Gigi and Bebe with cousins!!!One  hot day in April we made a trip to Lititz Park to meet Kaleb!She is signed up for Pre-K in the fall! Half breaks my mommy’s heart that we are already at this new stage together!a wonderful trip to NC to visit good friends!!!

My helper

I have loved capturing Kaleb over his first year of life. I love his big brown eyes, his happy spirit and his smile!!!  I, however can not take the credit for getting him to smile on his one year old session. Myla usually does not join me on a shoot however I was thankful she did. I am not a child photographer and as I realized how Myla gained Kaleb’s attention fast then I could, I put her to work. Myla would stand behind me and call Kaleb’s name! He looked. Myla laughed. Kaleb laughed. Myla made a silly face and Kaleb laughed some more. She has turned into a BIG helper! Myla listened so well, payed attention to directions and held onto the balloons for the end of the session. Well, at least till the very end  of the session until they made their way up into a tree! And yes,the balloons were all tied together with a weight!!! I’m hoping one day that she will not be holding the balloons, but a camera in hand and shooting along side of me.

If you look closely you can see the bunch of balloons up in the tree in the picture on the right!

awww…. I love that!!

Kaleb: ONE

I now can not call him Baby Kaleb. He is officially ONE!!! As a mother time just seems to fly. You look back and see how quickly a year passes and how much your child has grown. I love pictures as they freeze these moments of them that change before your eyes. He is now walking on his own! I forgot how fast little walkers are and how they just keep going! There was no slowing Kaleb down once out of his mama’s arms! Kaleb has the sweetest spirit! He loves being around people and there is always a smile on his face! A BIG smile of happiness! It was such an honor to capture him through his first year…you can see three months here, six months here, and nine months here. Thank you again Mirjam for allowing me to capture your little boy! Enjoy!!

LOVE his hat and those dark brown eyes!!!

such happiness!!!

He is now a big boy walking on his own!!I loved all his sweet touches between him and his mama!!Look at his little hand on his mama’s face! O-so sweet!!Above is a favorite!!!And, yes, that is a baby bump! Kaleb will be a big brother come late fall!!!And what is a birthday without cake??!!I think he loved it!!!All done and cleaned up from the cake!!
