We are all part of the visual era and with so many #instagood and Pinterest perfect ideas on how to document baby’s first year in the prettiest and most unique way it’s super easy to get carried away. This 3rd time around I certainly did… With Eliana I just took a photo every month. With Lia I used a blackboard and monthly stickers.

Just a Mamma Letter to a one year old471e

Here we are, one year after the 1st moment I held you, the 1st time I heard your voice and the 1st instance I looked into your big, beautiful eyes. So many things have happened and changed over the past 12 months and although it sounds like a decent amount of time, it actually went by in a flash. Our tiny, fragile baby girl that slept for hours on end has become a bubbly, feisty toddler crawling wherever she likes,…

On Saturday Ava turned 6 months, yes a half year! And like “good parents” we knew we had to mark the occasion with a memorable half birthday photoshoot. It’s a little tradition that in the past have always involved food seeing as 6 months was the time we introduced solids to Eliana and Lia. Ava has however happily been enjoying food for a month but we like the tradition and thought a watermelon cake would be clever. I had it…
