Mother's Day Photoshoot

Thoughtfulness comes very naturally to my husband. And I never want to take that for granted.
He knows how much I love having nice pictures, but don't get them very often, especially of me and Grady. He's got a naturally artistic eye and has gotten confident in using my DSLR.

So for Mother's Day, he scouted out a nice scenic spot and took the sweetest photos of me and my boy.
And my boy on the way.


And here are a couple out-takes to show you how we take pictures with a toddler.

Feed him crackers.

Distract him with sticks.

Thank you for the sweetest Mother's Day gift, Josh Goodman.

Gender Reveal Party - Round 2

One of the things that I definitely wanted to repeat that I did in my pregnancy with Grady was a gender reveal party. We have the fondest memories of sharing that big moment with friends and family and we wanted to do it again.

Our gender ultrasound was on a Tuesday, but with Josh going out of town for work, we decided to wait until Sunday to actually have the reveal party and find out. 
It was a long wait to Sunday.

And as sentimental as we are, we decided to use the same bakery we used for Grady's gender reveal cake, only this time we asked them to make donuts. 

For the actual reveal donuts, we had them do cream filled with either pink or blue, and they had to put a white dollop of frosting over the piping hole in order for us not to see the color before hand.

Man, I love a good donut.

Of course, with milk.

And I made these fun donut balloons after seeing this blog post from Studio DIY.

And what do you know....'s a BOY!!

We are so thrilled for a brother for Grady!

Thanks to all our family and friends that skyped in... 

...and all those who could come celebrate this special moment with us!

We are overjoyed to be welcoming another little boy to our family in September!
