boone's 6 month photos

Several weeks ago when Boone was 2 days shy of turning 6 months old, we had our friend and photographer Katie Hill come to our house for a little photo session. You may remember that she did Boone's newborn photos as well and we are still in love with those, so naturally we were excited for her to capture our little guy yet again. I couldn't narrow these down too much so prepare yourself for picture overload...and believe it or not Boone was actually not in the best mood this particular morning (any other morning he's all smiles), yet Katie still managed to work her magic.

This baby boy. Can you tell I'm just a little bit crazy about him? And his big brother too...who was at school during this shoot or would've definitely been right in the middle of it :). Bear doesn't let Boone get too far out of his sight and nothing makes me happier than seeing my boys interact together, full of smiles and joy. My Mama heart lives for those moments.

Katie and I opted to keep Boone in nothing but a diaper for the session because A- we wanted clean, minimal photos to show all of his sweet features and B- who can resist baby rolls? No reason to cover up all that chub! If you got it, flaunt it...especially when you're 6 months old and thunder thighs are still a cute thing.

Boone's diapers are eco by naty, which he has worn since he was about a month old. We LOVE the brand and can't say enough good things about all their products- from the wipes to the baby shampoo, everything is eco-friendly and amazing quality. The diapers hold up well through even the worst blowouts and keep Boone dry all night (he wakes up with one heavy diaper!). Eco by naty also offers diaper subscriptions which make the best baby gifts! Get 20% off your order on the website here with code FULLWOOD20...and let me know if you try the products! Hope you'll love them as much as we do.

Off to run a few errands before we pick big brother up at school- Boone took an almost 2 hour nap this morning which has to be some kind of record. He's normally more of a cat-napper as much as we're on the go, but he's getting better at taking longer naps and Mama is thankful to be able to recharge and get a few things done in the process. When he wakes up and smiles at me, though, there's no better feeling in the world. So thankful for our Boone Thomas.

Boone's newborn photos

When Boone was 2 weeks old, my sweet friend & photographer Katie Hill came to our house to take newborn photos and she did an amazing job of capturing our newest addition. Get ready for picture overload- I couldn't help myself!

Baby Boone turned 1 month old yesterday and I can't believe 4 weeks have already come and gone. I know a month isn't much in the grand scheme of things but we blinked and Bear was 5 years old, so I've seen firsthand just how quickly the time goes by. I know I won't be able to rock or cuddle or hold my boys forever, but it's my biggest hope that they always know how much Mommy loves them. "I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always. As long as you're living, my baby you'll be". Happy 1 month to our sweet Boone Thomas. Our world is forever changed for the better now that you're in it.

family Christmas photos

I'm finally getting around to sharing our family photos we took in Paris back in mid-November; these are some of my very favorite photos of Bear that we will cherish forever! We shot with the talented Alina Sepp eeeeearly one morning when it was in the 30's, windy, and bitterly cold but the boys didn't mind at all, luckily. I, on the other hand, was freezing; I had a big wool coat that I'd pull off just long enough to take a few shots then I'd throw it back on again #wimp. I'm sorry in advance for oversharing; I just couldn't narrow it down because I have too many favorites. The final photo is the one that ended up on our Christmas card!

In more important news, MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE!!!
We're headed out for dinner (destination still undecided but my vote is Texas Roadhouse aka carbs) then back home to bake & decorate cookies for Santa, watch a Christmas movie, read the story of Jesus' birth from Luke in the Bible, and stay up entirely too late just to get up entirely too early :). This has been such a magical Christmas for our little family between having a baby on the way, Bear's sweet excitement over Santa, and spending our very first Christmas morning at our own house. We watched the original "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" last night, a tradition that Bear and I both love (pretty sure Zach fell asleep) and the end made me tear up even more than usual: "It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.” Feeling so very thankful and wishing you all the most special Christmas full of family, love, and celebrating greatest gift of all- the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
