Sweet little Wilder & Thormund were VERY excited to come into this world. So excited that they came early and we weren’t able to do the maternity shoot. That’s ok though, because capturing these sweet moments at home was just as perfect. And can we just talk about how GORGEOUS their Mommy’s dress is? She bought it on easy and it truly is lovely. I loved seeing these twin boys gaze at their Mommy and Daddy, as well as at each other. They were womb mates and now they’re roommates! Welcome sweet babies. You are loved.

The other day we said goodbye to the home we had lived in for almost two years. It was always supposed to be a transition home and trust me, I was READY to get out of there, but it was still bittersweet saying goodbye. This is the home we brought Josiah home to when he was born. My water broke all over the living room floor! We had many great memories as well as many bad ones (hence the being happy about leaving). Since I had not done a lifestyle session at this home, I decided to take some photos as we said goodbye. Micah had many memories he talked about.

 

I was NOT surprised that he wanted to start with the backyard. My husband made this swing set for him when he was two and then added a swing for Josiah when he was born. Many great memories. Micah learned to swing by himself and not need a push on this swing.

Micah wanted to sit and talk about the garden we had in the spring and the HUGE snowballs we made in the winter from these steps.

“Mommy! Do you remember that we had Jojo’s birthday party out here? And all my friends came and there was a big water slide? Do you remember that Jojo swam naked in the baby pool after everyone left?” Yep, buddy. I sure do. I also remember how he didn’t eat his smash cake I made for the party because he threw up ALL of the trial-run red velvet cupcake he had on his actual birthday.

Jojo wanted to get some cleaning done, per usual. Micah found a little gold confetti on the floor. He remembered the British Christmas party we had and how fun it was. Last year I bought the wrong Christmas Crackers and instead of prizes there was LOADS of confetti…which was not really a prize. It was a mess to clean up and we never did stop finding those annoying pieces of gold confetti.

Micah went to his room and said “This is where my bed was!” Then Josiah proceeded to pretend to sleep on the floor because…why not?

I sat right in that very spot most nights on Josiah’s grey rocking chair. I nursed him, sang to him, prayed over him in that spot.

You can’t really tell from the photos, but we went to our bedroom and Micah talked about how he came in there to sleep with us at night if he had a nightmare. Jojo decided to have a dance party (which is an everyday thang in our home).

Micah sat with Ben and told him that he remembered lots of great things. He loved looking out the window to see if his friends were in the yard (which they shouldn’t have been because it was OUR yard but, you know, these are real memories we are sharing here).

Then he sat and looked kind of sad. He said he remembers some bad memories in the house as well. We took this as an opportunity to talk about sadness and how it helps us appreciate the happy times as well as the things we miss. It is a beneficial emotion to have sometimes.

Jojo wasn’t all about this tender moment and wanted to run around. Soooo off to the kitchen he went!

How appropriate for this to be the last room to say goodbye because these boys LOVE food. Micah and I made many dishes in this room. Josiah was always getting into the cabinets and trying to find food.

GOODBYE old house! We embrace new beginnings…

Last fall I went on my first super duper big girl business trip…to NYC! Here’s the deal: I have been wanting to have custom pieces of clothing for my studio clients for awhile now and decided to team up with local Nashville designer, Sarah Farrell. To say I am excited is an understatement. Her work is amazing, creative, and high quality (you need to check her out). It was such a great experience to discuss ideas, view and touch fabric from the largest fabric store I have ever seen (MOOD), and nail down clothing pieces for my maternity clients. In case you haven’t ever watched Project Runway, Mood is a massive fabric store in NYC and it is three (or four) stories high. This place is filled with rows and rows of fabric. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life. Here’s to new beginnings and custom clothing for my clients!
