Let me start this post by saying I am over the moon excited I am pregnant and having a baby girl. I think most of you know that it was a struggle for us to conceive baby number two and I have taken nothing for granted this pregnancy, I am so thankful to be pregnant and can’t wait to meet this little baby growing in my belly. I am so excited to turn this family of 3 into 4.
But that being said sometimes I get sad thinking about another baby entering our house. You see for the past almost four years Sterling has been my side kick, it has just been me and him and I have loved every minute of it. I love our lunches together, our strolls together, our play dates, our conversations; I really treasure this time with just me and my little man. He is such a sweet soul filled with such a big personality. I love him so much it feels like my heart will burst sometimes. I get sad thinking about not having all this one on one time with him once the baby arrives. I don’t want him to be neglected once the baby comes. I know a sibling will be a great thing for him, trust me he needs to learn that he is not the boss of this family and to share. I just hope I have enough time and energy for Sterling and his sister. As our due date rapidly approaches, I mean we have less than 95 days to go, I just want to savour these last few weeks that it is just me and Sterling.
I wanted to capture this moment in our lives when it was just me and Sterling and his sweet personality at age 3.5. I had my friend Brook Bertschy take some pictures for me and I could not be happier. If you live in Charleston and need a photographer, Brook is amazing with kids and super reasonably priced. Her contact info is HERE if you are interested. Her photos are really special and amazing.
Here are a few of my favorite snap shots from our shoot, Just me and my firstborn son who brings me more joy than I ever thought possible.
The last picture totally captures Sterling’s personality exactly, such a ham for the camera! It was a miracle we got any of him just smiling because he was acting up so much! That is how good Brook is!
Have a wonderful weekend!
