one year ago.

On this day one year ago, a package arrived in the mail. I had ordered it several days beforehand, after waking up at 2am with yet another pregnancy dream and my fourth day in a row of feeling nauseated. In the package sat three pregnancy tests from Amazon.. If you live in a small town where everyone talks, you know the benefit of ordering these types of things online. ;)

I had spent the last several days convincing myself I was being silly, so I didn’t even take the test immediately. I got dressed, drove into town, and ran some errands. Then I came home and popped a buffalo chicken sandwich into the microwave and decided to go take the test while it was cooking. I left the test sitting on the bathroom counter while it processed and went to eat my sandwich. As I was walking down the hall to go check out the result, I realized something: I was telling myself not to be disappointed if it was negative. Somehow, I had already fallen in love with the idea of having a baby, even though we had just discussed not wanting kids for a little while. I really really wanted that test to be positive.

And there it was.

Thus began the biggest whirlwind of a year I’ve ever experienced, and here we are one year later with the most amazing little girl.

the sky’s still blue.

We had a few warm days not too long ago and I had Cora outside as much as possible. The only downside to having a fall baby is by the time they’re old enough to enjoy being outside, it’s sooo stinkin cold! So we went on a little trek to our mailbox one afternoon without worrying about frozen toes.

This was her first time riding in her stroller without being in her carseat and she loved being able to see everything!

Okay soooo.. These were about two months ago. But I love them so damn much that I’m posting them here anyway and just know that there are a LOT.

Huge thanks to Rachel at Rachel Photographs for spending a few minutes with our little family and cranking out a ton of amazing images for us. We’ve already printed several really huge for our living room and bedroom and I get giddy every time I see them!
