Our precious Penny is already 3 months young, and I’ve finally found a quiet moment to sit down and share the story of her birth! They say that 3rd babies are the game-changers and I’d say this was accurate even on her birthday! This was my longest yet easiest labor–although not by much in both regards.  I am beyond grateful to have had Jeff and my wonderful doula friend Ashley there both to support me and to capture these most cherished images!… Read more »

Over the weekend we had the joy of celebrating our baby girl’s first birthday! It seems so bittersweet and surreal that the snuggly newborn we met 365 days ago has blossomed into a jibbering, scooting, cupcake-loving tot with such a sweet disposition.  Yet at the same time, we can scarcely remember life without her. Since we named her Violet, pretty much her whole life has been flower-themed by default, and her first birthday party was no exception!  We have the most… Read more »
