WPW: Christmastime!

It has been a while since I participated in any of the photo linkups. It is amazing how much of a difference it is going from 1 to 2 kids. Plus throw in one that has colic and milk allergies and silent reflux and you have a very tired Mommy with no extra time. Things are finally starting to calm down a bit so maybe I can start posting a bit more. Today I wanted to share this photo I took of Addison.

Moments of Joy (a giveaway)

I know I love to take photos of my kids, and especially to capture those special fleeting moments. The ones that you run to grab your camera or snap with your cell phone and that end up being the important memories that you cherish. If you are like me you also enjoy sharing those photos, I mean why else do we blog, Instagram and share on Facebook?
 
Well now there is a new site to share those special photos, videos and stories of your kids. Fisher-Price has launched a new site (as of today) called the Fisher-Price Moments of Joy site.
At the site you will be able to upload and share those moments. I had a chance to check out and upload some photos to help test out the site before the launch. I have to say it was super easy to load and share. Here are some of the moments I loaded on the site.

Ellison's newborn pictures: 1 week

Here is my little man at 1 week old. He was a bit more difficult than some of my other newborn clients. Maybe it was because I am his momma and he just didn't want to settle for me. I did manage to get a few good ones. Now I just have to pick out a newborn announcement and what picture I'm going to use for it!







He is here!

Ellison Gibson Stoney arrived on October 1st at 8:46pm weighing 8lbs 11ozs and measuring 20.5 inches long.
From arrival at the hospital to birth was 4 hours and 45 mins and he came out after 2 pushes. He was very bruised from the fast arrival but otherwise was wonderful.
We are in love with him already and he has been a fairly easy baby so far (hope I don't jinx myself!)
His big sister Addison is doing great with him and wants to help with everything and loves him so much!

Family maternity photos!

We finally got to do our family maternity photos. We never did them with Addison and I have always been sad that we didn't have those memories. I am so happy we got to do them this time around since this will be our last baby and my last pregnancy.







Maternity photos, part 1

We finally got around to taking part 1 of my maternity photos at almost 38 weeks. We still need to do ones with my husband. He has been working so much that I wanted to make sure to have at least some done in case I went into labor early. Hopefully as soon as he gets off we can do all of us together.
