At one year old, this little guy is all smiles. And how can you not notice those huge, beautiful blue eyes?! He's a little charmer. Jeffrey definitely lives in a football household. He must enjoy cheering on the Buffalo Bills. His favorite moves are clapping and "touchdown" where he throws his arms up over his head! He is the most adorable little fan!!! The photos of Jeffrey in his buffalo sweatshirt and that little crocheted blanket, I can't even take it. I love all of his animated faces! That blanket was hand made by his Aunt. It's so gorgeous, I want an adult sized version!! Happy first birthday sweet Jeffrey!
This is one of the happiest little boys I've seen! He is also the spitting image of his Daddy, I can't get over the likeness! Leo loved hamming it up, as we watched him and laughed. He was keeping busy crawling, kneeling and dancing. It was all fun until we tried to make him eat cake! Haha. Some kids just don't like it. My first two kiddos wouldn't eat cake at this age. Of course, they have caught on and figured out cake is delicious! Leo was having a great time knocking his personal cake over and squishing the icing around in his hands, but he did not want to eat it!! I've never seen Leo cry, until we tried to make him eat his birthday cake! Poor guy. He was still so cute! The world was good again once he crawled away and Leo was back to doing his happy dance! Happy first birthday little Leo!
So much love for this sweet baby girl! Lace is such a pretty little baby with bright, blue eyes, long blonde lashes and the fairest skin. She has a beautiful, floral nursery with hand made accents created by her mama. It's easy to see that Lindsey and Rob are already so in love with their beautiful baby girl! Baby Lace is a growing girl...she was eating every hour during the day and every 2-3 hours at night. Ahh, I remember those days! Even with little to no sleep, mom and dad are so happy!!
Current obsession...baby nurseries. I love them all. You can just feel all of the love and thought that went into planning for this sweet new soul that will one day inhabit the room. This navy and blue themed nursery had the most adorable DIY touches such as mason jar book ends and framed sheets of music because Dad is a musician. So cute!! Don't let him fool you...This normally very sleepy boy did not want to go to sleep! Ben was showing off those big, beautiful eyes the entire time. Poor baby was so tired at the end of his photo session, he didn't know what to do with himself. I bet he zonked out in his Rock n Play the minute I left! Peggy and Matt are just glowing with joy over their new baby. He is such a happy boy, as long as he can chew on his tiny, little hands!!!
I love a good nickname and they call the baby Lil' John. Automatically, the background music and chorus of the song "Yeah" start playing in my head. Usher singing "Lil John.. Yeah-ah!" Hahahaha, I love it! This precious little one is very sweet and so far, Mama says he has been a laid back kind of guy. He probably figures that right now, it's easier to just close his eyes than try to keep up with his big sister. Oh, they will be trouble together once he's mobile! Baby John is adorable with his brown locks and long brown lashes. These little boys get all the good lashes! Big sis, Ella, came along for the photo session and was excited to play and not so excited to pose. The outtakes are hilarious! Poor baby has puffs in his hand, on his head, basically everywhere to try to get Miss Ella to come near him! Let the fun begin with 2 under 2!!
The happiest baby on the block! She really is...we live across the street and Adeline is always smiling and laughing! With her toothy grin and her little pixie hair, how can you not smile with her?! And after this session, Tess is not invited to any future sessions. We had the happiest baby and the crabbiest baby in the same house. Enjoy the many adorable faces of this angelic little one in her beautiful nursery!
Sweet baby Gracie is just 8 days in these photos, all 5 lbs of her! She's such a tiny little girl!! Big brother, Declan, was not sure what was going on. He was very serious. We were joking that he was giving us Blue Steel. Whatever he was thinking, he was looking cute. Gracie girl was super adorable as we basically wrapped her up like a present. Such a little peanut!! I just love watching this family grow! I can't even believe Mike and Lizzii have 2 children now. I feel like it was yesterday that Mary and I were taking photos at their wedding! Now, they are parents of a beautiful baby girl and handsome little guy and I couldn't be happier for them! I am so thankful to be able to capture these milestones in their lives! Take it all in, that sweet baby smell, every coo, snuggle, hand being held...it all goes by too quickly!! (Says the mom who's last baby is now a toddler...where are all the sad emojis when I need them???)
How is our little peanut already one year old?! She is walking, trying to repeat words, clapping and not wanting to sit down. Ever. Not even in the tub or high chair, and especially not while at Wegman's or Target. This is one busy little girl. She was sick, teething and has scabs on the tops of every single toe from Joey taking her for a ride in the red push car, but she performed. Come on, we all knew she'd be fine with a cake in front of her. If there's one thing P like to do, it's eat! She walks around the house screaming MY with her hand out whenever she hears a package opening or someone in the kitchen. She is something!
Things I'd like to remember:
She has 4 teeth. The top 2 teeth are coming in going different directions, like East and West.
She loves playing rough with the boys and is not afraid to pile jump when she sees an opportunity.
She smiles and does a little dance when she hears a song she likes.
Has a few words: Dada, My, Mama, Bubba, Ow.
Her favorite item is "Pinky," her pink blanket that she pulls out of her crib and rubs up to her nose when she's tired.
She sucks her tongue to soothe herself and go to sleep.
Loves to sleep in her crib, definitely the easiest baby to put to bed. She doesn't make a peep.
Loves any type of ball or sword the boys leave behind.
Favorite thing to do is to go up the stairs or roll away while you are changing her diaper.
Happy Birthday baby girl!! We may have to call you the baby forever, even though you have thought you were 4 since birth.
It takes a village. I owe a huge thank you to Mary O'Sullivan and Fran for coming over to help entertain this little stinker and to Kelley Comerford for the beautiful floral arrangement she created for the cake! Thank you so very much!!!
Just wanting to remember this season in our lives. I love the kids ages right now. They are all young enough to still want to hang out with us and independent enough to play on their own. Sort of. There is a lot of fighting, arguing, and crying, but watching them all together is everything.
And I wish it would stay summer in Buffalo forever!
Baby Reid has arrived to join his big brother and sister! They were beyond excited to welcome their newest sibling. Let the craziness of zone coverage begin! This tiniest addition is the sweetest little boy with beautiful blue eyes and chubby little cheeks. So far, Reid is happiest swaddled up and sleeping while Luke and Addison play around him. Win for mom and dad! Congratulations to the Boyle's! You have such a lovely family!!
