He is too precious for words…
I realized that ever since I start my personal blog I have not posted any personal pictures over here…oops! I know most of you do not read my personal blog, so I wanted to share a few pictures of our sweet little boy and a few thoughts about the last 6 months.
Everyone said it would happen, but I don’t think you can fully understand how quickly time flies by until you have a child. Since transitioning to a family of 4 (of course we can’t forget Opie was our first child :)) has been a relatively easy and natural transition for us, it feels like Corbin has been with us forever. On the other hand, though, I think back to his birth in April and those first couple weeks of motherhood euphoria and realize just how quickly the newborn days are over – so sad!
Although I do miss the days when he was so small & cuddly & immobile, I think I would choose to freeze time right about now. He has just enough personality & independence to be so fun & interactive, yet still be a baby who needs his mamma and will still cuddle and fall asleep on my chest whenever he is tired. Over the last couple of weeks, he has been working on mastering the art of crawling. He can crawl the “correct” way now (not just the military scoot), but he can’t go too far without loosing his balance. I’m sure we will be chasing after him within a matter of days now!
This Summer has been a whirlwind for sure! I was fortunate enough to take the remainder of April and all of May off to be with Corbin, but we were back in the full swing of shooting on June 5th. On top of shooting every weekend since then, I started back to my “desk” job 3 days/week in early July and that’s when things got really crazy. I thought by now I might have found a way to maintain some sort of balance, but I’ve embraced the fact that my schedule is just going to get a little crazier before it gets better 🙂 December & January should be pretty low key, so I’m looking forward to some quieter days ahead to re-charge for next year.
I do want to take a minute and thank all of our clients who have been so great and understanding! I am not able to turn around my editing as quickly this year as I have in the past and it really helps my anxiety to have patient clients 🙂 Also – I obviously have not been able to keep this blog up-to-date, but I plan on catching up when things slow down…so expect lots of goodness from this season to be up later this year!
