October literally FLEW by. It is one of my favorite months. The air is getting cooler, and all I want to do is build fires, make smores, and stay outside. This year it was HOT! No fires for us, especially with all the dry weather we have been having. I totally did not take the usual “flower month picture” that I had planned to take every month of Gracie. We did however take plenty of pictures this October. You already know that if you have been keeping up with the blog. And yes, of course we had to do the baby in a pumpkin picture. Gracie was not a fun, and really wanted to eat that pumpkin. She developed a little personality this October. She smiles all the time now, and even learned to laugh! We visited 3 pumpkin patches, and made 2 Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge trips.
I am so excited for this Halloween since we have Gracie to dress up now. I went a little crazy in the costume department. The two minnie costumes were actually bought before she was even born last fall when I found out I was pregnant! Also, thank you so much for the pictures Rosa Haynes Email her to schedule a session, and let her know I sent you! Stay tuned for some festive halloween outfit posts of Miss Gracie tomorrow!
Gracie Belle is 3 days away from being FOUR MONTHS OLD!!! Wow, I know I have said this before, but I will say it again- Time PLEASE SLOW DOWN! It is absolutely flying by, and I am enjoying every last second of it. Today she is trying to sit up, like actually lean forward and do a sit up! I guess we are just skipping rolling over??
I will start off by saying that breastfeeding is the hardest thing I have ever done in my entire life. There is nothing that can prepare your for the physical and emotional demands it brings. I was so determined while I was pregnant to “breastfeed for one year”. I wanted my baby to have the best of the best, and that meant breast milk. I just knew I would be able to do it. Gracie weighed 7 pounds when she was born on a Thursday evening. I had complications
This post is long LONG overdue. I had planned to hand-write her birth story in her baby book while I was still in the hospital. However, I did not feel the least bit able to do much of anything while at the hospital (more about that on down). So, here it goes…
I am finally sharing Gracie’s newborn pictures! I tried to narrow it down to just my favorites, but of course that was just about impossible!
