Button at the Beach

The last time we took Maeve to the beach, she was just a few weeks old and quite frankly, couldn’t care less where we were. This time, however, was completely different! We decided to head over to Florence for a last minute visit! And by last minute, I mean no vacancies…anywhere! Well, clearly that wasn’t entirely true because we did manage to score (and by score, I mean don’t touch your bare feet to the floor, I think these are clean sheets, and listening to Johny Super Snorer through the paper thin walls kind of score!!) the VERY last room at (I will keep the name of the hotel anonymous, for their sake ;) ) some motel! But hey…it’s these kind of experiences we treasure…right?!?!?

YES…that’s exactly right! We really did have a great time. Maeve was bouncing around the room full of excitement, and David and I stayed up late grubbin’ on frosted animal cookies, potato chips, and wheat beer (obviously we are health nuts )and playing cards!

The next day, we were beach bound! Maeve LOVED it!! She definitely took some time trying to digest everything she was hearing/seeing/feeling, and then she just went for it…

My pefcet loves! It doesn’t get any sweeter…

Maeve and mommy…

Hambone!


Until next time…

Oh, sweet baby Keegan! I have watched your mommy and daddy wish for you, plan for you, grow you, grow anxious for you, and now care for you with more love than you could ever dream possible. And it is truly a blessing to be part of. We love you three so, so much!!

Here’s a peak at perfect baby boy, Keegan’s newborn shoot…

His talented mama made his hat…

Hahahahahaha!! I love this!!! Tiny little golfer…

And don’t be fooled by this tiny morsel of perfection…he peed…and peed…and peed…oh, and pooped…a lot…

So cute…

I will end with one of my absolute FAVES…

Much love!!

Maeve – 15 months old

I have been TERRIBLE about blogging about our sweet little button! And it’s not the fact that I don’t take pictures, ’cause I do! They’re just all on my iPhone. I know, I know…straight up laziness! But, well…that’s all I got.

So, what is the 15 month old little turkey up to…

  • She’s SO happy!! It is the biggest reward to see how happy Maeve is. We can’t help but feel proud of the fact that she is surrounded by so much love and happiness that she exudes it all.
  • She’s got quite a few words down now, (of course she understands far more than she can say) and it just blows me away. She picks up new words and concepts every day. I really could just sit and watch her for hours.
  • Picky eating comes and goes…as does the frustration. I know all you other mamas out there can relate ;) We had a rough go there for a while, but I think we are back on track!
  • Tantrums.Have.Started! Ha! Like throw her body down on the ground and kick (I almost don’t like to admit this) kind of tantrums. They are short lived, thank goodness! I understand it’s a completely normal part of her development and trying to figure out all this independence, but nonetheless, it’s quite entertaining. They have already started to subside substantially, but she is definitely a limit tester!
  • She has all her molars in, for a total of 11 teeth (12 is about to break through any day).
  • She is almost 100% potty trained! (yippeeeee!!)

The list could go on and on, I’m sure, but you all get the idea. Anyhooo, here’s a few shots of our perfect little love child…

This is the epitome of perfection (for us at least ;) )…

Concetrating so hard on her book, that even her tongue comes out! Haha…

Here’s a little clip of us trying to get Maeve to perform some of her tricks for us. She’s kinda perfect…

Until next time (I will really try to not let the Maevey blog posts be so far in between)…

This shoot was especially fun because of who we were photographing. Caitlin and Byron have only been in our lives for about 2 years, but we probably see them more than any other people. They have helped us become stronger, better people, and we are truly thankful!! They have always been so caring and absolutely incredible with Maeve, and they are helping us teach her about how important fitness is. CrossFit Evviva is like a second home to us ;) Thank you for genuinely taking an interest in our little family!

Needless to say, it has been a true blessing watching you both turn into just that…a little family. We can’t wait to meet baby Gold…and to watch you both do 100 burpees :)

LOVE…

Freaking GORgeous, Caitlin…

So sweet…

One of my faves…

Oh yeah…

And just in cause you aren’t sure how awesome Caitlin is…

Coooome onnnnnnn baby Gold!!!

Although we didn’t meet up with Logan until he was 3 months old, it has been so fun to watch him over this past year. He has turned into such a cute little man. I’m so glad you guys were willing to make the trip down from Portland for us to document Logan’s first year! Take a peak…

This is priceless!!! The true definition of care free…

LOOOOVE…

My fave shot! There is nothing churched up or complicated about this. It is simply a beautiful child…

Thank you three so much for a great first year! We hope to see you in the future :)

For having just met the two (well, technically three) of you…I kinda love you!!! Seriously!!! You guys were outrageously easy to photograph, and not to mention, super cute! Thanks for truckin’ through all the bushes with us ;) , and we can’t wait to meet the little babe…

LOOOVE…

Oh wait, this one too…

And this…

I seriously had too many faves from this shoot! This, being one of them…

So simply gorgeous, Neisha…

Extra love!! Boy? Girl? Boy? Girl? Boy? Girl?…
