maternity photos | part two

hubby and i found an amazing old mill near our house with just the dream location of some more maternity photos. i wanted to get a few this weekend outdoors because i'm now 35 weeks...and lets face it, we're getting close!! still feels weird sharing so many photos of myself & baby m, but i know one day- it will mean a lot :) thanks to my hubby for capturing these shots...truly amazing! 

maternity photos | part one

a few weeks ago i had an impromptu photo session with yes, myself. i have been enjoying these last few weeks of pregnancy so much that i wanted to make sure i captured it better than i did with my first child. i only took a few photos when i was pregnant with madison but i really want to remember the tiny kicks and movements while pregnant with baby m. i feel super weird sharing these photos, especially because there is a maternity photos part two- but i'm just gonna roll with it. these were taking in our bedroom, by me, with my tripod. some are a little out of focus, mainly because i was hitting the button and running into the frame but enjoy :) still weird seeing so much of me and baby m-- but i feel so blessed!

first day of school 2013

today is the first day of school for both of my loves...just a little update on some BIG changes for our family! madison begins first grade today...yes, first grade! where has the time gone? it feels like we just moved here and she was starting kindergarten. matt took a new teaching position at mount tabor high school in winston-salem and today is also his first day. i couldn't be any prouder of these two-- always adapting to change and growth. as baby m continues to grow in my tummy-- we have about 6 weeks until we have an addition to the family :) 

and just a peak into the first day of school last year 2012

madison's 6th birthday

only a week later...ok, so i have been swamped at work. ten hour days. i'm a bit behind on my social media including sharing some photos from madison's little family birthday party from last weekend. we had such a good time & she was so happy to have some family come to town to celebrate with her. we enjoyed treats, gifts & cheesecake. what kid doesn't like "real cake?"- it was wonderful! thanks to our amazing family for making it so special...you're 6 now kiddo!
