Senior sessions are so fun!
I love hearing their plans. Their creative ideas for our shoot and reminiscing about the feeling of confidence and wonder that seems to be the hallmark of being 18 ❤️ @gab.bie
Eliana’s First Day of Kindergarten! In Germany, kindergarten spans ages 3-6, and formal education begins with first grade. Therefore, we now have one child in American kindergarten, and one child in German kindergarten (kindi)! Eliana was all smiles and super excited to head out the door this morning. The teacher invited me to stay for the day, but Eliana begged me to leave. She was completely unbothered by not understanding a thing anyone was saying, eagerly took the hand of a new friend who offered it, and that was that.
It’s all been so sudden that I haven’t had a chance to process. My baby is officially in school, and is being 100% immersed in German. Thankfully I know the teachers speak English in case there is a problem, but for the most part, it’s sink or swim for this kiddo! So very proud of her adventurous and can-do attitude! I think she’s going to have a great time.
Macy Elizabeth, aka Macy Moe, is the dead center middle child. Don’t tell the other kids, but her name is my favorite, and she shares a middle name with me.
She was an easy baby and clumsy from the beginning. She nursed well but would take a bottle of pumped milk better than the rest of my babies ever did.
I knew at 4mths old she’d be a big talker and she didn’t make me a liar (even though she’s had issues with lying). She was my only baby with a good bit of hair and it’s been long and crazy ever since, and she’s cut it herself. 😳
I have referred to her personality as Dr.Jekyll & Mr. Hyde for a long time. She’s either the sweetest thing, making strangers swoon as her 2yr old self proclaimed “You’re the best mom ever!”... or she’s screaming venom in your face.
She gets her stubbornness honest, but she can also have the most genuine servant’s heart too. She will give you the shirt off her back, but only if you ask and don’t just take!
She’s 8 now and was my biggest baby her first year (25th % for weight is HUGE for us) but is usually the shortest in her class now. Her round eyes are gorgeous and she rocks her some braces. 😍
Happy Veterans Day!! My dad served in the Air Force. My best memories of being a military kid was living on Guam. We had geckos living in the house with us that freaked out my mom. My brother loved playing with those things! Good times! #airforce#militarykid#guamlife#divinemascara
My #hero ❤️🇺🇸 —Growing up as a Military kid, I realized early on that not every child/wife/husband/brother/sister/friend/etc. has their loved one return home... it’s a harsh reality to face and it’s because of these brave men and women that we are safe. Being an Army kid definitely shaped my entire life and I’m so proud of my vet and our family for always staying strong. THANK YOU to ALL the brave men and women who put their life on the line and have sacrificed so much to protect this country, and thank you to their families as well for their service, it’s a team effort 🙏🏼❤️🇺🇸 #thankyou#veteransday#militarykid#army
