Miss M | Three Months Old

Little Miss M turned three months old today. I’ve been back at the office full-time for a week, and I’ll admit it’s hard to be away from her all day. It also takes me two hours to get myself and both girls out the door in the morning, and that’s with an hour of prep the night before. But we’re adjusting well, and she’s such a blessing! She smiles and talks and continues to grow like a weed. She’s 12 pounds – so she doubled her weight in just 3 months! Check out how she’s changed.

Family in the Fall

Large portrait sessions are sometimes hard to coordinate. We’ve been planning this one for almost a year, but a couple of circumstances delayed it for quite a while. It’s almost like it was meant to be – the weather was absolutely perfect! This family was full of laughter and jokes. Many changes in my life have slowed down my photography this year, but they made me remember exactly why I love taking portraits. Thank you for that! Oh, and a throwback: I took photos of the youngest a couple of years ago.

Baby Abigail

One of my favorite photo families welcomed their third baby girl last week, and I had the honor of taking some newborn and family photos of them. They invited me (well, I invited myself) into their home just a few days after birth, because I was hoping to get both those sweet sleeping baby photos (the ones where you can pose them however you like), along with some awake photos. Unlike my newborn daughter, Abby was wide awake the entire time! I may not have captured a lot of posed shots of her, but I definitely got to showcase her beautiful newborn eyes and get some great shots of the family. You can tell they’re so in love with their newest edition!

Miss M | Two Months Old

This sweet girl is two months old today! I don’t have official stats yet, but she’s still growing like a weed! She still loves to sleep and eat, and she has been going about seven hours at night between feedings. (Though sometimes her last evening feeding is at about 7 p.m., so we’re working on adjusting her time schedule.) She likes to give us smiles and has strong legs – pushing herself forward during tummy time and pushing herself up in the bouncer. I just realized she no longer vocalizes with newborn grunts, which makes me want to cry. I only have three more weeks with her/working from home before I’m back to the office, so I’m savoring this time.

Smiles!

My Miss M is already seven weeks old! She had her first smiles at five and a half weeks, but she’s just now really starting to smile for us. I actually caught a few on camera today! I included a couple of her typical serious face, too.

Miss M Meets Great-Grandma

My dad, the girls (ages 3 and 5.5 weeks), and I took a 7-hour round trip to Shelbina, MO yesterday to visit my grandma. She was tickled to meet Miss M and see Lil’ Miss K again. She’s 93 years old but still hasn’t lost the “touch” when it comes to babies! Miss M has now met both of her great-grandmas.

Miss M | One Month Old

I can’t believe my baby girl is already a month old…and I have to start thinking about work in a week and a half. *Insert sad face.* But oh my, how she’s grown! She is gaining weight much faster than Lil’ Miss K did (who had reflux and a milk protein allergy) – I think she looks like K’s size at two months! She doesn’t even feel like a newborn when I hold her anymore. *Insert another sad face.*

Here are her first comparison photos that I plan to do each month.
