Piper - Just Beautiful!

While I was out on maternity leave, I visited a photog friend of mine. She was looking for a newborn "model" and I happened to have a newborn. It was a quick session as I had to go out of town that morning ... but Julie was so sweet and welcomed us right in. Julie is expecting her 4th baby but rocked out our session. Piper of course, was wide awake most of the time. I appreciate Julie (of Julie Gayler photography )taking the time to capture my sweet baby girl. I can't wait to have some family photos done ... sadly enough, we have 1 from Christmas day! Check our my sweet Piper baby!
I can't believe she was 10 weeks old yesterday! Time is flying by!

Quit blogging much? Why ... There's so much to share.

I really don't know what happened to my blog. We had a beautiful baby and BAM! It happened ... I didn't make time to sit down and capture all the little things going on. Well, I'm going to do my best to recap the last 2 and a half years.  Last November we moved to Greenville.  It's been nice being "home" and close to my family.  My parents have been a blessing to us.

Our most recent joyful news is the birth of our daughter, Piper Autumn Jolly. She made us a family of four on October 17th @ 12:35 am.  She's absolutely beautiful and is as happy as Palmer was when he was little.  She was born with a head full of dark brown hair, slate blue eyes and a complexion to die for.  From her birth to now (and I'm sure it'll continue) she is my 0-60 child.  She goes from laughing to ticked off in an instant.  This would be how I went from some twinges/pains at 6:30pm and her being born at 12:35am.  I'll write my birth story in another post.

Palmer just turned 3 last Friday!  I can NOT believe he's already 3 years old.  We go for his 3 year old visit next week.  He's getting ready to move up to the 3 year old class in the next week or so.  He's smart, loving and absolutely adorable.  He randomly (and constantly) goes up to his sister and gives her "loves and kisses."  It's so sweet how he'll kiss whatever part of her body is accessible and then lean his head down to her and love on her.  He's the tallest kid in his class.  (and probably has the biggest feet too!)  We're transitioning him into 5T clothes.  YES!  You read that right, 5T!  He's solid!  He's wearing an 11.5 shoe as well.  So solid and has a good understanding.  He gets his feet from me.
