There isn’t much time for blogging these days. I’m definitely shooting a lot, but my subject is almost always Riley Boone and his daddy. I’m okay with that right now. My creative brain has gone from work mode to play mode, which is exactly what it needed. I’m missing you clients this holiday season especially, but also loving that you’re finding other folks to capture what you and your families are doing this year. That’s the most important thing. Keep documenting your lives in any way you can. This bit of time off is giving me some space to do that with our “little dude,” and I’m so thankful. Here’s a brief look at what we’ve been up to since my last personal post in early October.
Riley watched his first Appalachian football game, and was part of our group photo in Blowing Rock homecoming weekend. Along with his little lady friend, Elliot. Yay, kids!
Ri loves bath time, naked time, and any other time that allows him to kick his legs freely and oh-so-swiftly. Until very recently, he’s loved traveling about in our Maya wrap kangaroo-style. Now he’s so long he likes to sit up on my hip! The image of him passed out with Jordan at the computer is one of the funniest damn things I’ve seen. Ri also loves his babysitters, Tasha and Michelle. Below he can be found sporting Tasha’s UNC Rugby sweatshirt. Loads of cute.
We found the cutest shark outfit for Ri’s first Halloween. The first thing Jordan thought of for his own costume was, of course, chief Brody from Jaws. Best father-son Halloween photo ever. Jordan made the boat you guys. Of scrap cardboard and colored duct tape. On Halloween day. The man amazes me.
In the top ten photos I’ve taken of these two. Love this so much.
Bath time is the best time!
If you can’t laugh at this series, you must be having a horrible day. The kid is one of the most expressive little humans I’ve ever known. He has us rolling, daily.
He’s just recently started to really reach for things, and study them so very closely.
Gah, that little grin. I feel like a melty marshmallow every time he grins at us like this.
We’ve picked out our first tree as a family of three. Can’t wait to celebrate Christmas with my little family.
I think Riley’s excited, too. :)
We hope you all are enjoying the holiday season. We’ll see you next year!
