Claire Bear is turning 1!

Hi my lovely readers! Hope your week is going well so far. Today, I come to you with some shots of Claire that I took a couple of days ago. I can’t believe that on the 19th she will be one years old! It seems like she just arrived!

I loved using this vintage yo-yo quilt as my backdrop! It’s like a field of multi-colored flowers. :)

I shot these upstairs in the hallway where we have a skylight directly overhead. It gave me great even, natural light.

She is actually wearing her sisters tank top…so she is swimming in it but I love the lace edges and it happened to be within reach so I figured, what the heck?

This one is a bit blurry so forgive me but I had to include it because…well…that grin is just too cute!

I will be sure to capture more photos at her birthday party!

Much love to you all!

Sugar and spice and everything nice…

Hi friends! Yesterday, I found out we are having a baby girl! I couldn’t believe it! I had secretly wanted another girl (mostly because that is what I am used) but I refused to set my heart on either idea in an attempt to remain neutral. But…I have to admit, tears of joy streamed down my face when they announced it was a girl. Grace was so excited too – we stole her away from school today so she could witness the ultrasound. She kept telling me it was going to be girl! I grew up always wanting a sister, so I am over the moon that Grace will get to have one.

My mind is already designing the girly nursery!! Such fun!
