Family Pictures 2018

You guys. We went an ENTIRE year without new family portraits. Can you believe it? I certainly couldn't. Also, our good friend Andrea Pesce moved so it was a little sad to think we'd have to be photographed by someone new! Haha! But luckily we remembered Stephanie, who is not only the best and had photographed Erik and I years ago... but she is my photographer twin and when I say twin, I do mean twin...

Willow is Two Years Old

Oh, boy. Where to even begin. Willow is two. "Two, not one" as she would say. I told her she wasn't a baby anymore and since I call her "baby" so much she responded, "not Willow anymore!" Baby is just synonymous with Willow I guess. She really isn't a baby anymore though. She walks, she talks, she has her own ideas. It's a whole different world from where we were a year ago. It's tragic and beautiful and wild and fun.

As I feel the one year birthday creeping toward us, I get completely swept up in nostalgia and also excitement. I love every second of Willow (now that she's BORN haha) more than I ever thought I was capable of. I knew I'd love being a mom. I knew I wanted a family. I knew this would always be my top priority in life. But I didn't know how much fun it would truly be. Every time I scroll back through my #willowgrowsup pictures on Instagram I marvel in how quickly she's grown and changed, but also how β€˜Willow’ she was right from the start. I think of pregnancy, the absolute non-stop rolling and kicking and dance parties, and think… yup that's our Willow. Baby can't stop, won't stop.
