family photos

18 Dec

last week my very talented sister, Valerie, took our family photos for us. 
she started a little photography business, if you’d like to check out her work, click here.
These photos I shared above were just some of my favorites. 
Lux would refuse to smile in any photos! but she still looks pretty cute, if you ask me.
** how is it, that all my sister’s are super talented, crafty people? and i dont’ have a creative bone in my body? *sigh*

a little piece of heaven

8 Dec

i took these yesterday, on my cell phone.  i know, i know… i’ve got skills. most of you have probably seen them because i posted them on my instagram/facebook. but felt like it should be on the blog, too.
russell’s aunt made the sweater for baby girl here. it has started to get a little cooler, so it’s a good time to wear it. it’s a pretty warm sweater… and it’s yellow, so of course i love it. 
my girl isn’t a happy one this morning so that will be all for now. enjoy =) 

Ordinary moments in our ordinary lives

2 Dec

I’ve been slacking lately when it’s come to updating the blog.

The holidays are always so crazy for everyone and I have been incredibly exhausted lately.

So, with all that aside, this is what has been going on lately in our house:

-4 month shots, and yet, look at those precious smiles she gives
-I came home today from running some errands to find Russell wrapping our stair case with lights (I plan on keeping them up all year… I’m in love with them)
-I dyed my hair, dark, obviously.
-my baby held her own bottle for a few minutes.

Gosh, she’s getting so big! We started her on a little rice cereal this month. I’m not in a major rush to get her on solids but her pediatrician said we could try it out. So far, so good.

Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. I didn’t get any photos on my own camera but I have asked for copies of what was taken during the holiday! So we will see!
