|miss olive has changed a bit since i last posted !!! she is almost 7 months ... i am still adjusting to the chaos of having another baby around here. it is quite crazy on most days!! i am trying my best to soak up all of this amazing baby stuff, because i do know how quickly it passes. we just can't believe she is already getting so big!!!
new on olive's list of accomplishments is saying "ma" and "da" (of course, she said ma first!!!), giggling, rolling around, and charming everyone in the house. the kids are in awe of her still, it has not faded as of yet. she is certainly the missing puzzle piece that our family needed, and she has settled perfectly into our lives.
as for work, i have had a bit of a much-needed break so far this winter. i started back to work when ms ollie was just 2 months old -- it was a bit of a challenge!!! but i made it through my busy fall in somewhat of a fog between lots of photo shoots, editing, and then nights and days of feeding. looking back over the past 6+ months is somewhat a blur, as i think most new parents would say. i am hopeful that i have taken enough photo and video so that we can remember it ..... i feel like the first few months are so hard, because it is so new, and you are just flat tired. the first few weeks are just horrid in my opinion .... i was so exhausted with her feeding every 2 hours or so, and nursing my third baby was my most trying time nursing out of all of them. but for now, we have all settled in nicely with everything, and she is just the cutest little thing and we all feel so lucky to have her around. the kids often remark about he lucky we are that we have such a great little baby in our family :)
i am going to update my available dates (above) this week. although we have yet to get a big snow, spring is around the corner!!! consider looking at dates if you are interested in a spring or summer session. i am going to cut back on sessions this year .... i have to to keep my sanity with our busy clan. so once the allotted sessions are booked for the month, i will not be adding any additional sessions. i will also send out a newsletter soon reminding everyone to look at available dates. if you don't currently get these newsletters, go to the top of the page and click on LINKS, and then click on JOIN OUR MAILING LIST.
for now, enjoy the cuteness below :)
