Mommy & Me Photos

Monday, June 22, 2015


It has been crazy here lately while Cam and I run around trying to get everything done for our move to Croatia in a couple weeks, and also, in going from one baby to two! It is the most precious gift to get to love and raise those two. We are so thankful. It's also been a healthy dose of total bananas! So, the other night, we went to our favorite beach in Carmel to let John Shea run around before bedtime and to enjoy the gorgeous evening together.  Cam was holding my camera for me, and then just like that, thanks to him, Grace and I have mommy & me photos for her baby book, maybe one for her nursery in Zagreb and for one day when she's older. I am so glad he took these! We quickly learned with John Shea that this sweet time in their little lives goes so fast, too fast, so the day she's older and would appreciate these will be here before she knows it. What an absolute privilege it is in this short time to get to be parents to our two darling children.

Also... how lovely is this herringbone blanket?! It was a gift for Gracie from one of my favorite companies (Tiny Prints!) and I love snuggling her in it every day. It's honestly the softest thing we have for her, and was kindly monogrammed for her, too.
