Oh you guys, I am so in love.  I have been snuggling and snuggling like crazy.  And adjusting to a baby again:)  I kind of forgot how much independence I had with a 5 and 6 year old, but it has been so good.  Our little family seems so perfect right now.  So thanks for allowing me a little time off to snuggle and treasure these precious moments that fly by waaaay too fast!

During the last couple of weeks, my amazing photographer friend Sarah, swung by to capture these precious moments for us.  I seriously don’t know how she does it.  To preface these pictures I need to tell you that we had my kids here, her 3 kiddos ranging in age from 6 to 18 months, and my sisters 4 kids.  She got these amazing “lifestyle” pictures while life was literally going on all around us.  Talented girl:)  You should check her out if you need some photos;)

She also snuck a few pics of Beckett’s little neck of the woods.  He has a corner in our bedroom for now, until he moves in with big brother once he sleeps through the night..


This little dresser is an Ikea hack that I’ll show you how I did in another post.  But lets just say the price was right at $35!


I created this little nook before we knew what we were having so the name of the game was neutral neutral neutral!


The basket keeps his diapers in and the dresser is just enough storage for onesies, pants, and blankies.


I have a little 25 watt bulb in the lamp which is perfect for a nightime night light when feeding or changing a diaper.


and my sister said if we have a boy then the butterflies can become moths.  I love them, the moths are staying:)

The rest of Becketts storage is in the newly renovated laundry room that I FINALLY got done, just in time  And I promise to show it too you soon:)

Alright, now on to the little cutie pie.


are you kidding me??

Handsome little boy.


I had waaaaaayyy too much fun playing with this boys hair.  I mean, c’mon..


baby faux hawk.


and that chin.  Oh that chin…


whose chin is that anyway??  This little peanut looks different from my others…except for his little angel sister…we see her in him a lot!


Taking photos is hard work.


exhausting really….


and of course I had to give him some love…

he’s a bit irresistible:)

and what’s a photo without some of my favorite chalk art!


it was Sarah’s idea actually and I just love how it turned out!

Oh Beckett boy…


Stay little forever!


and that’s a wrap.


I can’t thank you enough Sarah Pollio Photography, for capturing these priceless pics!!  Love you!!

    I am so happy for you! We lost our sweet Elizabeth 18 months ago to trisomy 18. We also just welcomed a new baby into our family. I first found your blog after finding out about our Elizabeth and it helped me so much. I feel connected to you and find our stories so similar. Here is a good post about welcoming a baby after a losing one.

    The chin, the hair, the cheeks, everything about Beckett is so precious! Sarah did an amazing job (like always) of capturing a beautiful mama and son. xo

    Ally, he is just adorable. Already so much personality in a little bundle of love! I am impressed that you can already wear your regular jeans even more WOW! You sure don’t look like you popped a baby out a few weeks ago! Beckett’s little corner is just perfect…”moths” and all! He is one lucky little boy to have such a loving family.
