We took advantage of fresh-fallen snow and we caught the last light of the day, in the last days of the year, in their last days of two.

Awaiting Baby

It's like a kid waiting for Christmas, knowing your due date is just around the corner, knowing you're about to become a mom. Whether it's the first time, or the third time, that same excitement swirls around. Except you know when Santa will arrive. He won't pass you by for a few more days, or surprise you a few days early, which lends to that deep anticipation. Marking those days off the calendar, passing by "due date" you vibrantly wrote on the calendar. It's the first experience of this new world that awaits you- the unexpected your children bring, the excitement, the swirling of emotions, the beginning of new adventures.


I remember the soft white dress my mom wore in the photograph, on the cusp of birth. There was a soft fuzz to the image, her friend laughed, "is my eye-sight going, or is this supposed to be out of focus?" The softness spoke to the moment, as she awaited becoming a mother the third time. 

Each time is so different, just as each child is full of new emotions, adventures, trials and successes. The first-born seems to be the trial run, the experiment. Those early years with them, you start navigating parenting. Then the second child arrives and you discover your heart expands with all the love in the world for them, just as it did the first time around. You continue sailing through unchartered territory, admiring these children you call your own, when years from now you reminisce about these times, holding that photograph close, when you were eagerly on the dawn of your second-born.

A Beautiful Baby Bump

A couple weekends ago, my sister & I & our daughters, headed to Anchorage for the weekend. It was lots of fun & a nice break off our island. We decided it needed to be our first annual trip. While the girls weren't so sure about all the car time, I'm pretty sure they'll like it in about fifteen years. Kaitlin & her mom met up with us a few hours before we flew home, & we squeezed in a very quick photo session before going to dinner. Kaitlin is gorgeous, inside & out. She's radiating that beauty with her pregnancy & it was so fun to see her baby bump. In a few more weeks, she & Luke will get to meet their little one. Congratulations you guys!!
