This year for Jeff’s birthday, I bought him a ticket to South Carolina to visit a couple of his besties from his bachelor days. His to-do list included sleeping in a hammock in the woods, eating at a waffle house, exploring Charleston and wearing short sleeved shirts (at the time, it was sub-zero in Minnesota). I have always wanted to visit Charleston–it is clearly one of the most charming cities in the U.S. It pained me to let Jeff adventure there without me, so when I dropped him off at the airport, I made him pinky promise he’d bring back some lovely photos to hang on the wall. And that’s exactly what happened. Here are just a few of my/his/our souvenirs.

Our hearts are so full. One week ago today this little miss entered the world and changed our lives in the most wonderful way! We cannot believe our family has been gifted the most beautiful, healthy baby GIRL!!  The past seven days have been a whirlwind of snuggles, visitors, packages filled with pink, and a lot of poopy diapers.  We are loving every precious waking minute–even if there are a whole lot more waking minutes than we’ve been accustomed to. Promise there will be many many more photos to come of Violet Girl, but right now we’re doing our best to keep up with our clients and catch up on rest. (:

If pregnancy were a marathon, then meeting your babe at the end would be the finish line—times 1,000.  I quite honestly cannot recall a more profound moment in my life than the day we finally met our little boy, Graham.  I’d never felt quite so alive. Now here we are, getting crazy anxious to do it all over again and meet the newest babycakesterson SOON.  I’m really grateful that Jeff had a chance to photograph this bump of mine beforehand. In case you love bellies and stories about bellies, you can read more about this sweet time in our family here.
