**I'm a little behind on my Project 52!  You were supposed to yell at me if I missed a week!!  You're not doing your job!  Oh wait... really that'd be me.  So I'm totally going to post -date this for last Saturday!**

This weekend we headed to Charleston for a little family time with my brother, his 3 sweet girls and our cousin.  And the super bonus of visiting the Hill's is the beach and the pool!  So Isaac got to experience both for the first time and he did great!! He loves the water.  Now we just need to do a better job of getting him in it more often!!

Such sweet times with family.  We are so blessed!!

This past week we celebrated our first Father's Day.  These boys. Goodness.  They are my heart.  Joe is an amazing dad.  He loves Isaac so much.  I love that they have Mondays together.  Their special day every week when it's just the two of them.  

For Father's Day we went to church and then out to brunch at Landmark.  After coming home for a little nap, we headed to the park with the Queens' and Aunt Natty & Jude for a picnic and playing.  It was a great way to celebrate the day!

Thanks to some sweet friends, we had an outing to Lake Norman today.  Isaac’s first time on a boat and in the lake.  He did great!!  Needless to say the life jacket was a little annoying and cumbersome but a needed addition.  We had a great day soaking up some rays and splashing in the water!

Two Little Monkey’s Photography


My first Mother’s Day and Isaac’s 6 month birthday fell almost on the say day so when I saw Samantha was doing a special for Mother’s Day, I decided it was a perfect opportunity to have our first photo shoot.


The Saturday before Mother’s Day Samantha from Two Little Monkey’s Photography came out to the house to have our session.  It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining, Isaac was in a good mood and Mama was having a good hair day = PERFECTION!  All the things needed for a good photo shoot – well and a talented photographer – so needless to say we were ready!!


As you all know Isaac is a happy baby and the smiles were just a coming!  Samantha was very laid back and just let us play while she watched through her lens.  The only challenge was Isaac wanted to watch her instead of me!  I was very happy with the shots we captured and there’s no doubt I will cherish them forever! 




Check out some more of Samantha’s work on her blog.  Also she’s running a Summer special if you need to capture some special moments!

6 months old

It's been a crazy 2 weeks so I'm a bit late posting Isaac's 6 month update.  We had another great month.  Little man is doing so good.  His happy demeanor continues and we enjoy every second of it.  This month we had a wonderful photography session that I can't wait to share with y'all.  

Little man is half a year old!  Check him out...

Little man had an out patient procedure this week.  He has done so well and hasn't seem like he has been in much pain.  I have to say again just how blessed we are to have such a happy baby.  He just fills us with such joy!
