Lindsey's 6 Month Photo shoot!

On Friday, May 11th, Lindsey turned 6 months old!!  (Already!?!)  So we met Alli Trickey at Burns Park for a photo shoot.  It was a beautiful day.  Unfortunately, LJ wasn't all smiles but we got some great pictures anyway!

Easter Bunny!!

Last Thursday, I took LJ to meet the Easter Bunny for the first time.  The whole way there, I was worried that the person in a large white furry suit would scare her, and she would have a melt down in the middle of the mall.  Thankfully, when we arrived, there wasn't anyone else in line.  I pulled her out of her stroller, handed her over and prayed for some cute pictures.... and well, it worked!!  Lindsey looked right at me and smiled so big over and over again!  It's too bad I couldn't afford to buy all the shots, but we definitely got a few cute ones!  Now I just hope next year's experience will go just as well!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!!

Birth to Three months

I realize I have been absent from blogging for some time now... but my goodness... Keeping up with a newborn is a tough job!!  Just wanted to post some pictures of her from birth up to her 3 month birthday!


I am blessed to be able to stay home with Lindsey and experience everything with her.  It's been a busy last few months, but very exciting!!  I love her so much and could not imagine my life without her now.  Hope everyone is doing well in blogger world.  I will definitely try to write more often!
