a picture post

Lavender from my mom…

Purple flowers from my sister… (our current favorite color – mine changes often haha)

daisies from my baby…

the littlest baby {at 16 weeks}

I didn’t feel like I looked very pregnant in that first one so I took another… dunno if it’s the angle or what but how can two consecutive pictures look so different???

my older baby :) the one who gave me daisies…

my new favorite Eli-hasn’t-allowed-me-to-shower-in-three-days, get-this-too-thick-half-wavy-hair-off-my-neck, I-have-a-headache-that’ll-just-be-made-worse-by-a-ponytail, I-can-only-find-my-sister’s-hair-band-and-her-hair-is-blond, it’s-just-me-and-Eli-in-the-backyard super loose braid-ish 3 second hair… don’t ask how I did it. I am no good at hair. And I’m sure you can do something much prettier and less messy!

I overdid the hyphens, I know… and I don’t care.

This is my favorite tree…

It would be perfect for a hammock underneath, don’t you think? Oh, and see the windchime? That is from our anniversary trip. It sings all day and I love it.

My tree is also pregnant :) Apples will be ready this fall… just like my baby!

The last apple blossom on the tree… (I loooove apple blossoms!)

A flower growing among the sticks and weeds in our backyard… or maybe it is a weed? I don’t know and I don’t care… it is yellow and pretty.

because

Because I lost the mini sd card reader thingy that allowed me to put pictures from my phone onto my computer… and when I finally found it I had 188 pictures to download…

Because you can’t ever share too many pictures of your adorable boy…

Because whenever he looks at me and smiles, my heart flips and I am reminded he is mine… just as it happened when he was placed on my chest for the first time (minus the smile, ’cause you know, he was cold)…

Because on Monday he will be one year old.¬†And I’m feeling a billion feelings all at once.
