Great news!! We celebrated Graham’s (almost) 6 month birthday party today! It has been one wild ride, but we wouldn’t have traded it for anything. Finally, life has calmed down a bit and we’ve rebounded from the rocky start we had (3 hospital visits in Graham’s first 3 weeks).
We had the privilage to meet up with another sweet, fresh little family similar to ours. This sweet little family just had their litttle Scarlet 5 weeks early, and they got to come home on time! What a miracle! Then, a few weeks later, they found out she had a few minior complications and needed to go to Children’s Hospital of Atlanta (just like our family)!! Needless to say, I feel such a connection with Kirsty. Thankfully, both our families made it out unscathed and I got to head over to her home for a sleepy session with her adorable Scarlet.
Scarlet was awake when I got to her house.
We only had a few minutes to some photos with her eyes open before she decided it was her naptime.
One big yawn and she was asleep for good.
We swaddled her in Kirsty’s own baby blanket that her great-grandmother knitted! Yes! You heard that right! It was even the last blanket that she ever knitted. I love sentimental photos.
I looooved Scarlet’s nursery! The colors were perfect and her mom and dad got that awesome gray wing back chair and turned it into a rocking chair. Love it! And there was an amazing fuzzy rug! A photographer’s dream nursery. 😉
The next few are so priceless. I can just imagine seeing her adorable silhouette on one of those textbook images of a baby in the womb.
We had to get a few with mom and dad. Even though I’m not sharing all of the photos here, I promise we got some of dad’s face. 😉 There’s nothing more precious than holding a baby in your arms. I read a quote once that said to hold a baby and/or a puppy every chance you get. Holding my own baby, I know that holding him while he’s sleeping is one of my favorite things to do. I know Kirsty will cherish these photos to remind her of these precious, fleeting moments.
And before I left, I had to get some of Scarlet on the bed. Before her mom and dad know it, she’ll be jumping on this thing!
