Dakota has an amazing day today, filled with so much birthday magic. Thank you to everyone who reached out with birthday love! ♥️
Happy 2nd birthday, to the little girl who colors our world more vibrantly than we ever imagined possible. I cannot believe that we merely blinked, and our baby has turned into this remarkable little girl. You are so kind, compassionate, intelligent, funny, sweet, and loving. Your heart is so pure and overflowing with so much love to give. Every day you teach us how to be a better humans. How to find gratitude and joy in the simplest of things. How to embrace the small moments and be present. Every waking moment with you is a brand new adventure. Adventures we will forever hold near and dear to our heart and are eternally grateful for. I will never forget anticipating your arrival...Those long ten months waiting impatiently for you felt like an eternity. The instant you were born, our whole world changed. I will never stop reminding you on this day each year, how you have saved me from myself. You encompass my entire heart little one. I thought I knew what love was...but I have never loved so deeply and profoundly, until I laid my eyes on you and held you in my arms for the very first time. I had always heard how a mother’s love could move mountains and calm rough waters...I felt that instinct the very moment you were born into this world. You have given me the single greatest gift life has to offer and showed me what true and unconditional love is. You make us so incredibly proud to be your mama and dada. Thank you so much for choosing us. We are blessed beyond measure to have you as our daughter. We cannot wait to see the person you grow into. You are such an inspiration to us and we know you will accomplish any and all things your heart so desires. You will always be our baby. Dada and Mama love you with every fiber in our being, our sweet girl. Happy happy birthday ♥️
How will this little ball of sass and sunshine be two tomorrow?!!!!
Dinner with cousins ♥️
We had a great time this evening at a little holiday get together for a team I second shoot for. Big thank you to @bakerture for always being so awesome and treating the team like family!
Thing 1 + 2
Quick bite out...of course we were sat right next to the “toys” aka a claw machine. She did not want to stay at the table lol. As if going out to eat with a toddler wasn’t tough as is
Even the local brewery is more festive than we are...putting getting a Christmas Tree on the to-do list ASAP
This week has been a blur, but we made it to the weekend.
Happy 28th birthday Matthew. You are truly the glue that holds this family together. You are so hard-working and make so many sacrifices for this family between work, school, and in our lives in general - it surely doesn’t go unnoticed. You are an absolutely amazing father to our little girl, who sees the universe in your eyes. To the love of my life, I am so eternally grateful for you and our little family. Today and everyday. I am so happy we are doing life together and I hope this next year is all you could hope for. We love you more than you know. ♥️
Eating has always been a struggle, but especially when she’s sick. So tonight she got her favorite dinner from Ashburn Kabob.
11:49pm. Tired eyes. Tired mom. Tired tomorrow. Tired of being sick.
Sick days are for lots of cuddles, tissues, snacks, and cleaning up said snacks. My first freelense
Finger painting turned spa day with dada. Lots of cuddles and relaxing in between.
This is what the holiday weekend has looked like. All dada, all the time. Ending today not feeling well, here’s to hoping she feels better in the morning ♥️
Short adventure before the sun went down
Thankful for you, always. ♥️
Instead of dwelling on how many technical errors I made capturing and editing this photo, I feel gratitude towards it...the fact that I get to watch her grow and have the ability to be with her everyday is truly a blessing. Documenting her daily life has been a challenge, but I’m so grateful for every minute and every photograph of her I get to add to our memories. From the chaos to our fun adventures, every moment has been a treasure.
