This month on the 5th we celebrated Daniel’s birthday and on the 11th we celebrated our 14th anniversary! We got to spend some together at The Dolphin Bay Resort in Pismo Beach while my mom watched Everly for us. We spent our time relaxing in the pool, hot tub, and tried out the sauna. We also got massages and ordered lots of room service. It was such an amazing retreat with my love! On the 8th, Everly turned 9 months old. The photo at the top is a 9 month in and 9 month out photo! It’s such an exciting time with her right now. She’s been standing on her own without holding on and getting closer to taking her first steps. She’s been dancing a lot and it’s been so fun seeing her love for music already. Her favorite is still Raffi and we play a live concert for her every morning and she’s glued the whole time. She loves being in the room when Dan is recording music in the studio. When she hears a catchy beat she likes she wiggles side to side and makes cute sounds with her voice. I can’t wait to see what she gets into as she grows. I’ve been doing a lot of DIY projects lately and having fun twinning with my girl. A couple fun projects have been some tie dyeing and denim distressing with some of mine and Everly’s clothes. I’ve also brought out some more of my old baby clothes and have been dressing Everly up and taking pictures of her in them. My favorite are the vintage Levi’s! We’ve been enjoying family walks together lately and I just keep thinking we’re living some of the best days of our lives right now. We always hear people saying that their favorite and most precious times with their kids are when they are babies. I can definitely say that it’s true for us and we couldn’t be more thankful.
I can’t believe we get to meet our baby girl in less than 2 months! We’ve been having fun lately at our prepared child birth classes, all our doctor visits, and ultrasound appointments. We got to see our precious girl a few days ago and we learned she is healthy, has my nose and her Daddy’s lips (from what we can see), and is weighing in at a healthy 4 pounds and 13 ounces. Both Dan and I were 9 pound babies so we wouldn’t be surprised if our baby girl turns out to be the same! We’re getting really excited for our baby shower next weekend. Our family has been planning it for us and we are so eager to see all of our friends, family, and loved ones that have been there for us throughout our journey. Our hearts are so overjoyed and we can’t wait to share our excitement with everyone and celebrate our miracle. Daniel is getting ready to complete our baby corner renovation in our bedroom next week. He already installed a new light fixture and I can’t wait till we get to put the finishing touches on the space. I plan on heading over to my moms house soon to go through all of my old baby clothes. I was one of five girls growing up and my Momma always had us dressed so cute all the time. She has boxes full of clothes that I wore when I was baby, including some special dresses my grandma made for us. It’s going to be so fun going through it all. June 17th will be here before we know it and we can hardly wait! We had so much fun on this maternity shoot with my Daddy –Michael Kinney Photography. We are so thrilled that he could capture this special time in our lives and we absolutely love how they turned out! My mom came out too to assist. I love my family so much 😄❤️ We’re so blessed to be surrounded with so much love and support.
