Our Sweet Valentines

Kayla Grace is the sweetest big sister we ever did see. She takes such good care of her little brother. Whether at school, in a store or even getting my eyebrows waxed she is there to carry him, pick up something he dropped, tie a shoe, give him a boost, kiss his boo boos and correct his grammar. These photos say it all. I don’t ask them to hug, kiss or look lovingly at each other they just do and it melts my heart. We love our sweet valentines more than words can say.

Kayla is having her first Valentine’s show where her little class will sing some songs for us. I can’t wait to see it!!! She has been singing all the songs in the car and around the house and she is always so surprised when I know the words. I have become the parent who annoyingly says, “I know everything”. Kayla picked out little tchotchkes for her friends, filled goodie bags and signed 24 cards for her classmates. She made a special one for her bestie and can’t wait to bring them to school!

Cameron is transitioning to a new school this week and is doing so well, I can’t believe it. I’m so proud of him and the little man he’s shaping up to be. He is the sweetest, snuggliest lil guy I know and I can’t get enough of it. It will be sad to say goodbye to friends and teachers but at least he gets to spend this day with the ones who have been with him since he was just 4 months old. We’ve been talking a lot about Valentine’s Day and he’s also getting excited. He can’t believe his friends will be giving him cards and treats. He’s going to love it!

I hope both kiddos have a Valentine’s day to remember 🙂

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

Our hearts are oh so happy! We had so much fun taking Valentine photos this year. It’s actually harder to get the solo shots these days because either one wants to be in the other’s photos. The love these two have for each other is real. Kayla is the best big sister I’ve ever seen and it melts my heart daily. She takes such good care of Cameron whether she’s helping him walk up and down stairs, getting his shoes on or running to say, “what’s wrong buddy?” when she hears him cry. I don’t even go running anymore because he’s happy two seconds after she gets to him. And Cameron wants Kayla to join him in whatever activity he’s doing. If he wants her to come play he yells, “come on, KAYA!!!” and when he wants her to ride his Thomas train he pats the back and says, “sissy sit here”. Kayla is also the only one he listens to most of the time. I can ask him to get in the car and be completely ignored but if Kayla says, “come on, Cams, let’s get in the car” he comes running. Let’s be honest, I do get to use this to my advantage quite a bit. 😉

I’m excited to say the annual birthday pics and St. Patrick’s Day pics have already been taken. Now to get them posted in a timely manner…for once.

OK, a LOT of love! And we have even more love these days with baby #2 on the way. Soon there’ll be double the outfits and cuteness on here and I can’t wait. Kayla is very excited for her baby brother “Peter Pan” to arrive. I am so going to put them in match-y outfits before they can refuse and call me crazy.

I made a rare trip to the mall after Christmas this year to exchange some shoes I received as a gift. On the way out, I saw a store called Crazy 8 with super cute kid clothes. I’m glad I went because that’s where I got this outfit. That trip was a good reminder for me to venture out more often because I might miss out on things I wouldn’t necessarily find online (my usual shopping destination).

This shoot was made possible by ring pops, foam hearts and a balloon. Thank goodness for the simple things that amuse toddlers.

Coming in the very near future…3rd birthday outfit, newborn (boy) outfits and even some maternity/family photos. 2016 is going to be so. much. fun.
