My days are busy with a baby girl on the verge of crawling(already propelling herself across the room by flipping or scooting) and my 4-year old son who has an insatiable desire for pretend play, painting, and books. Photography is a part of my busy days–whether at home in the role of a “Photog-Mama” trying to preserve precious family moments or away photographing other families’ special moments.
Recently, I had the opportunity to test a Once A Month Menu plan, which promised to help speed up meal preparation around here(I tested the gluten-free/dairy-free menu but there are many other options available). I felt crazy shopping for so much food when I took the menu’s list to the grocery store but kept telling myself I was shopping for a month’s worth of meals. One rainy Saturday, Alan helped me to assemble some of the meals. We couldn’t get it all done in one day because of having to tend to our little ones. Having frozen meals (or the starts of meals) has made the last few weeks less stressful so far so I definitely will try Once-A-Month cooking again.
Did I mention that our adoption of our baby girl was finalized in April? So relieved to be done with the adoption process. Loving watching her as she grows & learns. She’s 8 months (by the calendar) and 5 months adjusted age. She weighs over 15 lbs now and is replete with sweet baby pudge. So wonderful to see a healthy little baby after having met her when she weighed less than 3 lbs!
Warm weather is here and I’ve still got some room in my schedule for portrait sessions on-location. Wanna meet me at a park or somewhere special to your family? I’ll bring my camera and creative eye…together we’ll celebrate your family in portraits you will treasure for years to come.
