Personal Post! 🍁
Today my mom and I took Em to a local petting zoo/pumpkin patch because I had a impromptu pumpkin patch session, so of course I thought "might as well take advantage" and get some shots of Em!
Well, it turned into so much more.
Watching him explore, cling to me as the big scary lamb tried to say hello, lean a new word "goat", climb fences, push his limits and touch a deer, attempt [fail] to pick up pumpkins, and kick and scream because he didn't want to leave....my cup just completely ran over.
Life gets SOOOO busy. The little moments just drift on by in the midst of catching up on emails, folding laundry, making dinner, doing things that ARE important but somehow just takeover.
I watched the little boy who used to be A T T A C H E D at my hip, explore and learn and run and never once did he look back. And as I look at these photos all I can see are little legs that were once thunder thighs and think to myself "where the heck did they go?". So here's to you momma, who works so hard and gives so much, but sometimes forgets to stop and smell the roses🌹
DAY 19: Tonight, we saw several friends and had a great time at All Access Night at @explorethedc! Andy had to work late, so he couldn’t come. Hayden talks about Dada practically every other minute and he was so excited to get home to see him. When we were getting ready for bed, I asked Hayden to tell Dada what he did at the museum where we went to play. He verbally said “dog” and “train” (along with the sign for train). This was true because Hayden played in a train and in the new Clifford (the Big Red Dog) exhibit. It’s HUGE that he was able to accurately tell us about what he did when he wasn’t with one of us. This is an emerging skill for Hayden and I’m just so proud of his communication attempts and successes. 💙💛
P.S. That last picture is Hayden’s rendition of me saying, “We keep the rocks IN the bin. No throwing!” ☝️🤣
Happy Friday everyone! What are you up to this weekend? Thought it would be fun to share my weekend starting today on instagram stories so check it out to get to know a bit about me!
My version of a Friday intro. You know this designer loves what she does and I hope it shows through my work. Get to know me on a personal level and see if we have something in common. 😊
