Ella+Max+Joey | Growing Up
Max has been asking Brian to show him some big worms that he had recently found in a bag of top soil, and today was the day. Max happily dug in the mud, and played with his â€œlittle buddiesâ€, while Ella and I looked for some plants. She has been learning about the leaves, stems, and root systems in plants, so she needed some hands on discoveryâ€¦and we even found an edible plant to examine. She said that the sorrel we found tastes a lot like lemongrass!
â€¦and here was five minutes in their worm hunt.
I have been REALLY bad about posting personal goings on here on the blogâ€¦and I need to get better at it!
So,Â I have decided to do a 5 minute challenge once a week. These images will be from my crazy life as I see it at home, here, there, and everywhere…all documented within a 5 minute timeframe!
For the first one, it started to pour just as Ella needed a brain break between History and Science. Max tested the waters first…and approved the fun pretty instantaneously….and here was the next 5 minutes…
Well that was a long break! Approximately 6 months ago I announced my pregnancy with this sweet baby boy, and that I had been placed on bed rest. What a crazy ride that was! During that time, we moved, began renovations on our new home, and on January 13th, 2016 welcomed Joseph Liam Fantasma into our family. We had opted to not find out his gender ahead of time…but that wasn’t the only surprise, as he was two weeks early and weighed nearly a whole pound more than my other two overdue babies!
Anyway…I’m so excited to be back at it, telling your stories and saving your memories! I will be starting up slowly, as my snuggle time with this sweet babe is at the top of my list for now, but I will have some availability starting in April!
Thank you all for your encouragement, support, and for holding out for me! I am absolutely humbled by how many of you faithful clients and friends have waited to be photographed by me! You guys are the best! Here’s to another beautiful year!
