We have been going non-stop since I wrote that post on Friday. The fact that I was even able to squeeze that post out was a small miracle. And now today, we are breathing and sitting and I’m still in my pajamas. This? Heaven.
I spent lots of time with friends this weekend. Stephanie, in particular. Our families together just happen to mesh so well. I remember when I met her a few years ago, we were at Panera and she was talking about her boys – she was a perfect stranger to me then and then our worlds continued to collide and I think our kids are the best friends. I think they think they are, too.
Yesterday morning I had a short photo shoot with Stephanie and then another with Erin after that. It was HOT outside. I can’t wait to show you some photos, it was lots of fun. On the way home from their shoots, I was watching the scenery. I’m a sucker for summers in Northwest Indiana. So beautiful – the simple cornfields are so familiar to me. The smell of dirt, corn, sweat and lake all mixed together to create this wonderful aroma.
I was wishing my brothers could be in the area on this Fourth of July, like last year. But it’s not to be. I’m so thankful for their service to our country, I’m thankful everyday, but yesterday, my pride was extra deep. My Mom wrote about what it’s like to have two Majors as sons in the military. It’s an awesome post.
Eli slept until seven this morning, then he nursed, I put him back down at 7:30 and we slept until nine which means OHMYGODHEISSOOLD. Just today he starting reaching out for things. Dear Time, SLOW DOWN.
Tonight I have a photo shoot with one of my twitter friends. She lives in Chicago, she’s 37 weeks pregnant with her first and I am so excited for her to become a Mama. I love photographing pregnant moms and also those first moments when they became a Mom.
Isn’t it hard to believe that Tommy was born nearly one year ago?
