"a portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013"

nursing by the glow of the Christmas tree has been my favorite these past couple weeks.

i can't believe this series has come to an end. 
it's been a year since i posted marlowe's first portrait
which was really just a portrait of her first home.
it's amazing to see how much can change in just 52 weeks.
2013...
what a year it has been.
i'm sad to see you go
but so excited to see what's in store for us in 2014.

little bits of christmas










1. marlowe was not a fan of santa claus
2. the sweetest little reindeer for her first ornament
3. christmas pj's
4. remember this photo? the difference a year makes!
5. our tiny baby proof tree
6. some handmade family ornaments
7. this little book has the best illustrations
8. my mom made marlowe the sweetest ornament
9. christmas lights and christmas music all day every day

marlowe's birthday invites



i spent so much time on marlowe's birthday party invitations
and i'm so happy with how they turned out.
i've also been going crazy making banners
and garland
and spray painting gold everything i can get my hands on.
i still can't believe my baby is going to be one 
a month from today.

when you have a baby
everyone tells you to enjoy it
that it goes by too fast
that they'll be graduating high school before you can even blink.
and you laugh 
and say you know it
but it's true.
oh, it's true.
i can still remember marlowe's birth as if it were yesterday
but here she is about to turn one.
a whole year.
an entire trip around the sun.

she says mama
and papa
and bye-bye
and can sign for milk.
she still won't take bottles
she's so close to walking
and sleeps in her own crib now.

she is a stubborn little thing
and throws a tantrum like a full grown 3 year old
but oh how i love her.
she brings so much joy into our lives
and every morning 
when i see her for the first time
is like christmas.
every. single. day.

bath time is the best time. she crawls back and forth, from one end of the tub to the other, splashing and yelling.
