Family Photos | A Bundle of Perfection

Remember this beautiful maternity session from a few months ago? Well, I got to meet the one-month old for family photos last weekend. Check out the photos – could he be any more perfect? There’s so much love in these photos, I had an incredibly hard time narrowing them down!

Miss M | A Few Snapshots

It’s funny how you take so many fewer photos of your second kid than your first. (Please tell me I’m not the only one?) I’m also much slower to upload, sort, and edit. In this instance, I finally pulled photos off my camera from a month ago. Here are a few keepers of Miss M … now 14 months old. (I also forgot to post her monthly photo – so I’ll post 14 & 15 months in a couple of weeks!)

She may be a pro at walking by now, but she still loves to hold our hand. (If she didn’t, my heart would break.)

Miss M | Thirteen Months

Miss M is a full on toddler now – toddling from here to there – usually with her hands straight up in the air, either for balance or because she’s used to holding onto our fingers. She loves to eat, she’s a great sleeper, and she does pretty darn well traveling. She’s starting to be more opinionated too – don’t you dare grab her toys, spoon, or paci without a fight!

See how she’s grown over the last month, or compare her to her sister at this age.

Miss M Turns One

My baby is ONE! My emotions aren’t sure whether to be excited or sad about my littlest turning one today. I think it’s a mix of both. She’s had a busy week with 4th of July festivities, and she’s got a busy weekend ahead with her big birthday party. She’s now drinking cow’s milk from a sippy cup, climbing up everything (like up and over the couch), standing up from the floor, and taking a few steps! She’s starting to say more words with meaning now – it’s fun to have two-way communication with her!

Check out how she’s changed since last month. Since this is her last “first year” photo, I’ll be moving away from the rocking chair pics to photos standing with Daddy, like we did with big sis.

Miss M | 11 Months Old

Looking back at last month, I think Miss M has grown a lot! I believe she weighs about 17 pounds now (still petite), but she loves to eat! She can eat a whole Chick-Fil-A kids meal by herself, and she regularly consumes more at the dinner table than her 4-year-old sister. She’s cruising along furniture and getting into more stuff every day. (Her favorites are colored pencils, gel pens, the cat bowl, and the stairs.) She has started saying a few words, like “light,” “agua,” and “uh-oh” – my personal favorite. Best of all – her sister is great at getting her to laugh!

Miss M | 10 Months Old

My little girl turned 10 months old on Saturday! After taking these photos, we found out she was sick. Looking back, I can see she doesn’t look like she’s feeling well. But, she continues to change so much each month! She loves food and is putting on some weight, but is still little at 15-16 pounds. She pulls up and grabs everything in sight. She likes to climb stairs and stand up on stools, climb into the dishwasher, pull up on hanging bath towels, eat crayons, and all sorts of crazy things her sister never did. I think she’s going to be our little troublemaker! She also started clapping, signing “more” at the dinner table, and making more sounds that mimic real words.

See how she’s grown since last month (and see how much the weather has changed).

Miss M | Nine Months Old

This girly turned nine months old a few days ago. She had a big month! She popped out two teeth and started crawling, pulling up, waving, and eating finger foods. She loves food – we haven’t found anything she won’t eat yet. She still nurses great, but we’re going to start feeding her more high-fat foods, because she’s weighing in at 14 lb, 14 oz., just the 5th percentile. She stands 26 inches tall, about the 10th percentile. Her sister was small too, so we aren’t too surprised by her petite stature. See how she’s changed since last month. (You may also notice that it’s much colder in Kansas this month than last month.)

Miss M | Eight Months Old

My little girl is eight months old today! This was the month of “almosts.” She is almost pulling up. She is almost crawling. She twists and scoots around both on her tummy and on her bottom to reach everything in sight. She can get from her tummy to sitting position and vice versa. She finally started rolling onto her tummy at night, so she’s now sleeping through the night – almost. (She still occasionally wakes up.) She gobbles up most baby food but her tummy doesn’t like yogurt – perhaps a slight dairy intolerance like her sister had. She loves to talk and mostly says “mama” still, which I don’t mind! She also trills her tongue better than any adult I know – Wookie in training! I think she weighs about 15 pounds.

See how she’s grown. And check out her sister in the same little vest a few years ago!
