Last weekend we spent our Saturday making the backyard pretty. Peyton loved helping us pick flowers at Lowe’s and after lunch she was all-hands-on-deck to help Forest get them in the flowerbeds. I can’t wait for these plants to get bigger with more blooms so enjoy all summer!
This weekend, just a few days shy of 38 weeks, we got a little dressed up and headed out for a few maternity pictures. I recently photographed a family session at a nearby public gardens and I knew it would be the perfect spot for maternity pictures for baby #2.
I don’t have any pictures of an easy breakfast with cute Easter jammies this year. Our church moved their first service from 8:30 to 7:30 for Easter so we were all pretty rushed to get out the door on time. But the service was good – I always love the songs we sing on Easter. And then we came back home for Peyton to open her Easter basket (bath toys, bubbles, summer clothes, and 1 piece of chocolate) and do a quick Easter egg hunt before Aunt Amanda needed to get to the airport.
We moved Peyton out of the nursery at the end of March. She’s now in what was the guest room but is now her big girl room! It’s bigger than the nursery – more room for her toys and playing! – and it’s farther away from our room – which makes no difference, really, because I think our walls are made of paper.
I was completely against the idea of moving Peyton at first. We decorated that room for her and I didn’t want to take it away from her. But the idea of having a baby in a bigger room didn’t make sense. So I agreed it would be best to move her. I was nervous she wouldn’t transition well (I was dreading multiple middle of the night wake ups) but she didn’t have a single problem.
A few of my favorite pictures from my 2017 Project 52 (I started it as a 365 project [one picture a day] but I’ve already missed some days and instead feeling guilty I just switched to a Project 52 [one picture every week]) – I just sent January and February to be printed so I’ll be sticking them in my album soon!
Little snippets that remind me of moments forgotten.
Until next time — Cindy
