Another model session brought to you by Lainee Lu 💜 I just kinda love her, like a whole bunch. And I love that she occasionally still lets me pick out her outfits 😉 girl, you’re looking good 💁🏼 even if you do look 16 and on your way to go hang out with friends 🙈 Just always remember that I love you, and one day you thought I was your best friend 💓 #fashionista#modelposes#mybestfriend#mymomismystylist#somedays
A year ago today, I told Travis I was pregnant with Leo using this little onesie. “Dad’s Lucky Charm.” I waited over a week after I took the test to tell him, just so I could tell him on St Patrick’s Day. Because Leo, he’s our rainbow baby... after finding out the November before at 14 weeks that there was no longer a heartbeat, we were crushed. Broken. Worst day ever. I cried and cried for days, weeks... But God had a plan. And this little lucky charm was what we needed. And even though my pregnancy, my delivery, and every hospital stay since seemed everything but lucky, every storm runs out of rain.... Leo’s our rainbow. Our light. Our lucky charm. Oh, and today was pretty awesome. We had green eggs and pancakes and enjoyed the day as a family of FOUR. 🍀 #happystpatricksday#luckycharm#rainbowbaby#babyannouncement#dadsluckycharm
Lainee Lu- you poor girl, you’ve probably had the most boring winter as we hibernate indoors, trying to keep Brother healthy. You really are the best sister. Spring is coming and we will have fun again soon 💓😘
This week Leo has learned tummy time isn’t so bad, rolling over is no big deal, and tickles cause the cutest giggles 💙 Maybe next week he’ll learn sleeping through the night? 🤷🏼♀️🤞😉 I guess I can appreciate those middle of the night snuggles since you seem to be growing so fast...
Leo Nicholas, 3 months old on the 8th! And RSV caused mommy and daddy to age 3 centuries... 😓 but we are on the mend and came out smiling 💙 And we were shown again that we have the best support system- friends, family, neighbors, and co workers- THANK YOU to everyone who sent care packages, dinners, and millions and millions of prayers and thoughtful messages.🙏 Masonic Children’s hospital treated us well, but we’d really like to never go back again 🙈 On a positive note, sissy loves you so much, and I have heard you giggle a few times 💙 #leonicholas#threemonths#rsvsucks#bubbleboy#nomorehospitals
Yesterday was two months already.... gosh. How could that be... I told Travis today that I felt like I got cheated. Cheated out of a happy pregnancy after all the scares we had, cheated out of a happy delivery as you were whisked away to the NICU for 7 nights, cheated out of a maternity leave since you ended up back in the hospital for 3 nights. I wanted a redo. A do-over. Because it just wasn’t fair in my mind. But Leo, that amazing daddy of yours reminded me that we really didn’t get cheated out of anything. Because we have you. And a happy family that loves each other. And we are healthy. And we are truly blessed. He’s right... sometimes I look at all the negativity and get a little overwhelmed, and cry, and feel bad for myself. But what is so bad... nothing. Because look at you. Smiling. Happy. Healthy. And two months old already. There’s no time to be sad, because time goes too fast. I need to spend all my time loving you, and your daddy, and your sister. I love you Leo. Happy two months #2monthsold#happyhealthyblessed#thesnuggleisreal#littleman#LeoNicholas#Godhasaplan#forthischildwehaveprayed
