2015 in Review
We celebrated July 4, which is now especially meaningful for us after the loss of our first baby on that same weekend in 2015. There will always be a hole in our hearts for that loss, and we were squeezing Beau extra tight on that day. This little smocked patriotic jon jon will always mean so much to me.
Our sweet niece turned two and we celebrated with a farm party. We love her so much!
Just had to throw this photo in because of the sweet face of my tiny baby! Time goes so quick!
Summer with Ben home was just so awesome. We loved getting to settle into being parents together.
This photo being included is really for no one but me. I have lots like this on my phone and just never want to forget the sweetness of snuggling my precious boy!
We got to live out a big dream of ours and continue traveling after parenthood. Beau's first stop was beautiful Switzerland, honestly the most enjoyable place we've ever visited. (part one + part two)
Next stop was Lake Como!
And then Milan!

We then flew to England and spent a few much needed days with family in Brighton.
And then we spent a week exploring beautiful London, a city that feels like our home away from home! (part one + part two)
We also managed a quick day trip to Paris, something I'm so glad we did, even though it was exhausting
When we got back, someone needed a haircut. Not mentioning any names. :)

On Traveling Internationally with Two Month Old Beau
September was all about preparing to move. Measuring things in our new house, packing, shopping for new furniture.
I loved looking back on how much life had changed over the summer.
And finally it was moving day! We, of course, celebrated with cookie cake!

4 Months a Mama
A Day in the Life
At the beginning of October one of my mama dreams came true, and my little pumpkin got to visit the patch.
Beau also started eating solid foods!
We took another pumpkin patch trip and grabbed this family photo.
I went on a quick day trip to Waco to get this sign at Magnolia Market, it was such a great day! I've said this before, but each time I visit Magnolia, the experience is more wonderful.
We watched lots of college football,
And loved celebrating Halloween with our boy!

Moving from Our First Home
Another sweet part of Halloween was getting to host the Coles, and meet sweet baby Campbell.
Right after they left to reunite with family in Mississippi, we hosted Beau's baby dedication with our home group and family.
I also figured that since it was November, Beau could start to enjoy some Christmas jammies. :)
We took a quick trip to New York with our siblings, leaving Beau for the first time overnight. Not trying to do that again anytime soon. ;)
We hosted our fourth Thanksgiving, and enjoyed celebrating with Beau for the first time!
Crafting with Beau
Beau's First Halloween
December was full of lots of fun Christmas adventures.
We had one really fun Christmas celebration with our close friends. It involved matching jammies and taking Beau to see Santa.
He had this out of character moment and gave us a priceless first Santa photo!
We celebrated the engagement of Sarah and Dillon, yippee!!
And my close friend Meredith came to visit for a few days, like a breath of fresh air. Time with good friends is just the best thing!
We had the sweetest Christmas ever with our precious boy!
