Oceanside Potraits

Here are some of our family portraits we took on our Oceanside trip. We had such a wonderful time. I'm glad we were able to capture it in photos.

Here is the whole group
 Then Josh's parents and siblings with their kids and spouses

Not the baby anymore

When you are about to have a new baby, it seems like most moms get a little sad that their current youngest won't be the baby anymore. I think when a child needs you a lot, you get this unique type of attachment to them. It's like you worry more when you are not with them because they rely on you more. I'm feeling that with little Charlie right now. Man does he ever test my boundaries, but he loves giving me hugs and definitely kisses!! He's so funny about those "smoosh your face kisses!" I know Charlie appreciates me reading to him every night. It is a treat he will just run and climb into bed for.

 I look back at the past year and how I worked to help support us when we moved to Utah. Then we were blessed with Josh's new job where I was able to quit my full time job and get to spend the days at home with Charlie. I'm so grateful for that blessing. Now my baby is growing up and having a sleepover with cousins. I can't wait to see him and Noah and Presley in the morning. I am lucky to be their mom!
