Admittedly this is a random week (week 10) from this project but it is one of my favorites! It was one of the first days of the year that wrapped us in sunshine and springtime so we spent some time playing outside in our backyard. I actually have been staying true to the 52 project I first mentioned here but I have been horrible about sharing them with you all! While it would be a bit of an overload of weekly pictures to get totally caught up, I will say it has been fun (and heart-wrenching all at the same time!) to see how much Story girl has changed and is changing. My sweet chubby cheeked squishy baby girl is now a tall toddler able to look at me and say “Hi Mama” or wrap her arms around my neck and kiss me on the cheek. I never want that to stop. She also loves to run into our room and say “Wake up Da-da!” (definitely a popular phrase in our house). When she finally falls asleep (usually on my lap) it’s all I can do not to kiss her all over just so I can see that smile one more time. Watching the rise and fall of her chest, I am so grateful for every minute I have with her, and I am overcome with the honor of being her mom. We are about one month away from baby brother’s arrival, and my prayer is that despite the craziness I will find time to watch her sleep and hold on to every moment of her as mommy’s baby girl.

You may recognize the floral-wreath-crown-turned-necklace from this shoot! Love this sweet girl and her growing imagination (and girly-ness!).
Tomorrow is my last wedding before our little man makes his big debut! So excited for Jon & Annie’s big day! Wishing you all a sweet weekend and a very happy Friday!
