I have already ordered prints to keep caught up with my Project Life album, pre-ordered albums for my 2014 December Daily as well as my 2015 One Little Word album. The future looks promising ;)
And with that, here is my little summary of our family at the end of Summer
[Adam] working so hard around the farm to play catch up with the million projects on the proverbial To Do list. It seems like work around the farm will never be fully caught up as new projects always pop up! What has always amazed me about my farmer though is how he takes it all in stride. He loves to be busy and rarely ever complains about the work ahead. He takes pride in his farm, his work and most of all, his family and that is something I admire deeply about him.
We just went thru 4 straight days of rain which is unheard of for this time of year & very frustrating as we desperately try to finish our harvest before the weather turns. At the moment, we have our peas off the ground and into the bins. Thats a mere 10% of our harvest. But, thats the name of the game when your office is your backyard and Mother Nature is your boss!
[Hudson] is growing like a weed in front of my very own eyes. It seems forever ago that he was just a tiny, fragile newborn and now I have this person in front of me! He is developing such a huge personality already and I fall more in love with him every day. Every morning I walk into his nursery and am greeted by the biggest grin you could imagine. We have a set routine in our days now that I craved so badly when we first brought him home. So thankful for such a quick & smooth transition into our new life this Summer.
Hudson is such a serious little boy, more interested in the mechanics of the world around him and loves to grasp everything in sight and discover the world around him for himself. His current favourites are playing on his musical mat, jolly jumping and sitting on someones' shoulders to get the best view in the house. He loves his blankets as well as grasping mommy's hair while sucking his thumb for comfort. Its so odd, its adorable!
Weighs: approx 15lbs Length: 24" Teeth: 0
Loves: Baby Mumums, fruits & vegetables (esp butternut squash & prunes), bath time, swinging, being tickled under his ribs (gently)
Hates: facial hair, being spooked
[Dawn] this year has by far been the most challenging of my life. Not only did I become a mother but there have been so many changes in my life..some many changes in ME
This Summer I have been challenging myself as a mother & as a photographer. I have been nurturing myself as I finally allow myself to grieve the loss of my dad as well as the loss of other relationships I once held dear. Loss is such a huge process to go through, it leaves you raw and open and, unless you are ready for that, its a very painful experience. I am learning daily how to move forward and I don't think I still know what I am doing but, I'm moving forward each day in a new way and thats all I can expect from myself at this point.
I feel I am at the cusp of some major growth and change in my life and I am so excited to see where this goes!
