babies, babies

My sister, Brooke, had
Baby Hudson last week.

And if I had to choose a new day job,
this is what it would be:

Capturing the wonder of
newborn babies in a trillion pictures.

big sister, Ashtyn
I also got to meet my niece,
Monica's, sweet almost 2 month old,

Cousins are smitten.
Oh, babies, babies.

My first baby.
Taking on mothering roles.

My middle baby.
Such a big boy,
but always my baby will be.

And my baby-baby.
Full of sass & comedic attitude.
Not so much a baby anymore.

And, I declare!
2 of my sister-in-laws have announced pregnancies, TOO!
'Tis the season, baby.

The Hunk tells family our
special news.

And now, on with that bittersweet first trimester.
I've donned the seabands, crackers are bedside,
the qweezies are ever-present although MUCH
more easy-going this time around,
Whattoexpect.com fills my inbox,
dreams of a fluffy joyful bundle in my arms
fills my thoughts.
Thank you all for your congratulatory blessings!
I'm so excited to share this adventure with you.


  1. If I'm ever blessed with another little one, you need to come take pictures for me! So cute. And Hudson's little face. Oh my word. So cute and chubby! And I love Brian's face as he's telling his family. You can see the happiness.

  2. Thanks for sending pix of my cutie grandson!

    I hope the first trimester woes go quickly for you.

  3. Thanks for taking pictures for me, they turned out awesome! I sent an email with what seemed like the one time you were without your camera, just my quick shots of all the kids. Love ya!

  4. You take such glorious photos that that would be the perfect job for you!! How fun to have multiple cousins coming at the same time!

  5. Congratulations on your upcoming arrival!!! I keep saying that this is "the year of the baby"... Off the top of my head I can think of at least 15 friends who have had babies or gotten pregnant this year! So much fun! Congrats! Congrats!

  6. Congratulations on a new little one!

  7. crackers at bedside, ha ha ha I've totally done that through most of my pregnancy :) Hope your first trimester is a smooth sailing! Congrats, again, soooo exciting! :)
    Do you think you'll want to find out the gender of the baby during an ultrasound? Did you, with your other 3? We did, we were just so curious... :)

  9. Hi Bree congratulations on baby number 4. That is great news!! I just had our 5 th baby I don't know if you remember me from last year, my daughter kiara has a very similiar diagnosis to your son Bugg:). My daughter is complexity healthy little newborn, and I ( like you) am appreciating every little small thing with her, that I missed with kiara. You are such an inspiration to me. I love reading your blog what great ideas you have. Good luck with the pregnancy I look forward to following along over the next months.
