When I was about 20 weeks pregnant with Grayson, I joined a facebook group of ladies all over the U.S. and Canada who were all pregnant and due the same month as me — May 2012. In the past year, the 200+ members of this group have supported each other through births (premature, on time, and late), one heartbreaking death, midnight feedings, and milestones. It has been so amazing to be a part of this wonderful group of women, and Grayson has over 200 virtual friends to grow up with.
I’ve had the pleasure of meeting five of these ladies and their kiddos in real life, and my most recent meet up was this past weekend, when I had the pleasure of photographing my fellow Tennessean’s daughter. (In case you were wondering, there are 3 of us located in Tennessee).
Those eyes! I die!
“A” has already learned to clap, and she enthusiastically demonstrated her new talent.
We have several talented moms in our group, and one such mom designs and makes wedding dresses. A’s mom, Autumn, commissioned our fellow May Mom to make this beautiful flower headband out of her wedding dress. The flower is detachable, so it can have multiple uses.
They brought along three dresses that A’s grandmother wore when she was a baby. This is dress #1. I love this little pucker that she’s giving me.
Here’s dress #2. Cute and yellow. Looks like it’s straight out of the 1950s….which is probably is!
And this pretty blue dress is #3. I love her beautiful red hair with this dress.
At 8.5 months old, she has already started crawling (something we’re trying to teach Grayson to do)!
And has seven teeth!!!
Mama’s necklace was a nice distraction when she started getting bored.
You can really see just how gorgeous her eyes are in this photo.
Here are a few more from our session.
And here’s a little one of the three of us. Unfortunately my little man couldn’t be in the photo because he was sick (for the first time in his life). I’m happy to report that he is doing much better now! I hope to meet these beautiful ladies (and Daddy) again!
