I’ve been trying to write something for four days on 2017. I’ve tried to find words to encapsulate what this year has been and I just can’t seem to find anything good enough.

So instead I’ll share a few pictures and hope they help to inspire the right captions.

I started this year just 20 weeks pregnant. At this point we were sure she was healthy, but we weren’t quite sure if she was a SHE yet! How quickly we grew together

I was so determined to appreciate my pregnancy. We stayed super active and dog parks were a weekly stop! Remind me to start this again when it isn’t -2 outside.

This shoot was so fun! I can’t believe how quickly time has passed, but I’m thankful for the photos that will forever remind us of these moments.

That moment of complete peace when she was placed on my chest and I heard her cry for the first time. The magic lasted for weeks. She was healthy and lovely. I fell in love in seconds. These moments have shaped this year. I’m sure it will shape me even more in the years to come.

I could choose a million photos from this shoot. She was so very tiny and I was so new to this, I only knew that she was everything I had ever dreamed of. I couldn’t believe she was right here.

Forever a favorite. We were so tired, but it didn’t matter at all.

I took this on Austin’s birthday. These are some of the only pictures she’ll ever get with her big brother, I want her to know he’s always going to be watching out for her.

So so glad we got to see Ruth and Rush before they left the country! So thankful for these memories!

The Best Days.

Rock climbing and breastfeeding go together real well.

Solar Eclipse 2017

Meeting cousins and Uncles and Aunts

Visiting new beautiful places

She’s probably going to be a rockstar snowboarder.

Washington will probably be a yearly trip now. It has absolutely won my heart and seeing these cousins is just the best!!

We actually cut down our own Christmas tree and it’s the prettiest tree I’ve ever had

We ended the year with Christmas in Birmingham and New Years in Texas.

It was a year that will forever be shrouded in joy! I can only imagine the laughter and love that is waiting in 2018.

Bring it on!
