Evelyn Faye 4 Month Photo Project & Holidays

I’m pretty behind on posting about my latest projects.  I’m finishing up the last touches this week, and you’ll be able to feast your eyes soon enough.

Real life deadlines make it hard to keep up on posting on the blog and reading all of my friends’ blogs.  I PROMISE I’ll catch up soon.

In the mean time, I have a little post of sweetness to tide you over.

Yesterday was a Crowder-favorite, May The Fourth Be With You.  #Yod-Evelyn

Today is one of my personal favorites.

And while I’m at it, it’s time to be sad at how fast my baby is growing.

I don’t think I showed you enough pictures of Evelyn Faye.  Dang it.

I’ll be back soon with real house updates.  I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. 🙂


Photo Project: Three Months

This post is a little late, but I’m sure you’ll kindly forgive me.

This beautiful soul is 3 months old.

The kid is a blossoming wildflower, exploding with personality.

You are beautiful
my tiny child,
wrapped tightly in my arms,
close to my heart.

I listen to you breathing,
and count your fingers and toes.

you cry out to me.
And I love you
with every ounce of my soul.

Each day with Evelyn Faye gets sweeter and sweeter.  #cavities

I’ll be painting the trailer this week!  Wish me luck, hopefully I have some good progress to report soon!

Photo Project: Two Months

Another month has passed, and it’s time to share where I’m at with Evelyn’s weekly/monthly project.

Here are 5 things I’ve learned in the past 2 months.

1.  Nyan Cat soothes a screaming baby.

2.  I will be single-handedly keeping earplug companies in business.

3.  If you follow a baby’s example, you might become as good at sleeping as they are.

4.  But probably not.  You’ll still be exhausted all the time.

5.  There’s nothing cuter than a babe in a bear suit.

She’s growing as fast as a cheetah on the split.

Evelyn Faye is also much more pleasant when it comes to being sat up these days.

Photo Project: One Month

I blinked, and my baby was one month old.  I refuse to keep blinking.  Let the staring contest with life begin.

If you search on Pinterest “baby growth pictures” you will see SO many cute ideas on how to document changes in your baby.


I’m in full on mom-mode, so of course all I do all day is take pictures of this little pumpkin, paparazzi style.


I decided that I wanted to do a weekly photo shoot, and a monthly photo shoot.  Babies change so quick, and I thought it would be fun to have 52 pictures to show changes in Evelyn’s first year.  After that, we’ll just stick to month to month.


I also have a rehab level mild addiction to America’s Next Top Model, so I’m just doing my best to make Tyra proud.  Hashtag: fierce & love.  Hashtag: Pot Ledom.  (Hashtag: Embarrassed.  Hashtag: Please don’t judge me.)


One of my maternity pictures was me holding this felt nesting doll up to my bump.

It made perfect sense to keep using this doll as the control against the variable.

It is astonishing how much she has changed in 4 weeks.  She hardly looks like a newborn anymore.  In her first week of life she lost 9% of her birth weight.  Then she made huge strides by gaining 40 grams a day.  Evelyn has chunked up speedily.

Little Girl wasn’t a fan of sitting by herself in the Strandmon.  I might be biased, but I do declare that she has the cutest Cry Face.


What we have learned about Evelyn’s personality so far:

Having her hands by her face.
Having the bassinet pre-heated before being laid in it.
Listening to a track of a heart beat on repeat… all night long.  (Makes for some interesting dreams for me.)
Laying on Aaron’s chest.  Not mine though.

Tummy time.
Being lotioned.
Listening to mom rap.
