Dudes – the beach is windy.
But windy hair outtakes are a post for another day. (Remember my eye blinking post? One of my
best most embarrassing!)
So turning the big oh-one definitely calls for a photo shoot. About a week after the little man’s 1st birthday, we threw a bunch of props, snacks, and outfits into the car and got our behinds to the beach to cheese it up. Our original plan was to have the photos taken at Station 12 on Sullivan’s Island, an awesome spot for pics and sunsets. But, the INCREDIBLY HIGH tide forced us into Plan B. We quickly decided on Station 30 and it was perfect!
The very sweet and talented Jan Tyler took these photos for us and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Thank you, Jan!!! Capturing our little man 6 short days before he really figured out the whole walking independently thing is truly like catching a memory in box. We luckily get to keep this box forever.
Now onto figuring out how to wrangle a walking baby at the beach. Hmm!Max, We are so happy that you were appropriately captured in your scrunchy nose phase. OH and that hair – the swoop that needs encouragement to stay swooped. LOVE! Mommy is sorry for all of the outfit changes, but LOOK AT HOW CUTE YOU ARE!!! Eating your favorite snacks (puffs and goldfish) definitely kept you happy during this shoot. Playing “Pump up the Jam” on your favorite little car kept you dancing (one of your favorite things to do!), even when you were fussing about the dry sand on your feet. And speaking of sand, you find it absolutely delicious. The taste and texture are apparently your jam. Just one question…where does it go? ‘Cause Mama has yet to find a trace in your diaper like all her Mama friends said that she would. Anyway, thank you for humoring us by smiling every once in a while despite your crazy parents’ repetitive monkey noise attempts and funny face-making. Yes, we are complete lunatics and no, it will never stop. You sure know how to keep us humble. But for reals – YOU ARE THE BEST! We love you to a million heart-shaped pieces and hope to make this an annual photo shoot event! Beach, balloons, wind – all of it!
HEART = MUSH
p.s. The 12-months-of-balloons has concluded and BOY is my husband happy!!! A post with all 12 months someday soon. Oh, who I am kidding? Soon could mean before this little man turns TWO!
High Temperature: 90° (with 85% humidity!)
I’m really not sure how it’s happening, but it is. Days, weeks, and months are flying by. Our little man is growing up, my gray hairs are taking a major stand, and Scott and I have been married over 5 years. Sheesh.
Did I mention that I have a ONE YEAR OLD? Goodness me.
We had an AWESOME summer! I know that it’s not over via the calendar or the position of the sun or whatever, but my summer vacation from work IS – so womp, womp…tear, tear – it’s over for me, my friends!
Here’s a taste of summer to catch you up…through pictures, of course!
After a couple of weeks of catching up on sleep and a quick ::read-HOT:: trip to Charles Towne Landing…
Scott and I made our way to Seabrook Island for the first time. This was our very first overnight (two nights!) away from Max. It was a mini-anniversary celebration and it was just lovely.
I thank the 45-minute drive for forcing me to get my ridiculously sobbing self together.
Think: gated community, half a mile from the beach/beach club, on a golf course, etc. etc. After two nights, my parents and Max met up with us for a couple of days (rejoice!) and then we had a couple of Family O’ 3 days.
Dear Seabrook, You surely deserve your own post. Just know that we are BIG FANS and can’t wait to visit your sweet self again soon!
Check it out…
Haha, that face kills me!
Kid is obsessed with eating sand!
LOVE my little family ♥
Oof, I’m exhausted. (Did I mention I’m back to work?) Stay tuned for a recap of 3 weeks in NY, including a BIG birthday party for one special little boy!
p.s. What’s new with everyone? Any new vacation spot discoveries? Dudes – check.out.Seabrook!
High Temperature: 92° (but feeling like over 100°!)
