calla justine newborn

meet calla justine

Our little Miss Calla Justine,
was due to arrive by c-section August 14 just as school,
swimming lessons, soccer
and dance would be starting up again for 
her big sister and brother. 
I think God knew how busy we would be during her arrival time,
so he decided to send our little miracle 
a little early so our entire family could truly enjoy her. The day she was born was no ordinary day for us.
It was our 13th wedding anniversary.
I had just dropped the kids off at my mom's 
for the afternoon and an overnight. 
Nate and I were going to enjoy a night out.
We were planning on leaving our house around 3:30
when my water broke at 3:00. 
Instead of spending time together on the town, 
we were now spending our anniversary in the hospital.
Calla arrived at 5:47 that evening
weighing in at 5 lbs 10oz and 18.5 inches long. 
She is such a little miracle,
and we are all in LOVE.

congrats nate, sheila, connor & alison!
calla is an absolute little dolly! 
thank you for having me do your photos!

Emma Elaine 3 days new......

(i may be a little bias about this sweet pea, eek here she is my new niece! congrats to my little bro ross, his wife kelly & my handsome nephew levi)

Meet Emma Elaine

i asked her mom to write up a quick something about her new princess,
 here's what she sent;

"Where to even begin? She's been a blessing since the moment we knew we were expecting her. Being named after her Mommy's Grandma Elaine, we knew this little lady was something special.
She came screeching into this world at 12:26 p.m., just exactly 10 minutes & 25 months after her big brother Levi! She is already giving him a run for his money outweighing him at birth, she's a perfect 8 lbs 6 oz and 20 inches long! From that gorgeously perfect round head, to her big beautiful now blue eyes, we all can't WAIT to have our days with her unfold. No doubt by your cute, colorful personality from birth, you will bring us all such joy in the years to come.
Being our second child, we didn't know what to expect. How can you love another human being like you love your first? But God is truly amazing! Our love for her and her older brother Levi make our hearts full and complete! Welcome into this world Emma Elaine. You make our family whole."

i don't go a whole lot of anywhere without my little ones myself, so with me they went to the hospital for emma's lifestyle 2 in the big world she is getting more love than ever from her cousins! sadly we missed big brother levi today :( 

(larkyn was somewhat of a baby hog....
im still pouting she got more snuggles in that me lol)
oh callum, he sang her the "farmer in the dell" and was into her little features!

 - onto the new mom and daddy :) all other little ones aside -

congrats you guys! she's an absolute dolly!
