a day in the life | may edition

One of my favorite things we do as a family is go on these little walks in the evening after daddy gets home from work.

The boys LOVE it and Ephram never wants to go home. He would keep going and going. Convincing him to turn around and head home is often a struggle. On this day Oren was the one that wasn't too interested in turning around to go back, as you will be able to tell when you see the last few photos! :)

I always have my cell phone with me for snapshots during our outings but I'm bad about grabbing my big camera when we head out the door. I'm so glad I did on this day. There is even a self-portrait of my 22 week baby belly. (I'm nearly 26 weeks now)

(check out my personal instagram for more shots of our daily activities!)

Really feeling like I could do a whole session for someone around these areas!!

When you've finished this post be sure to follow the circle around to my sweet friend Jeanna!

Treasures. My boys and the things Ephram brought me during the course of our walk. Hard to believe that in 14 weeks I'll have another sweet boy to add to these photos! The time is really flying by this pregnancy and I'd like it to slow down a bit.

We haven't walked in a while it seems. It has been raining a lot lately and the mosquitos are out and love to eat my littlest alive. I'm also not looking forward to the incredible heat that comes with a Texas summer, especially being pregnant during it!

Now please take a moment to check out what a day in the life looks like for Jeanna. Also, be sure to find her on facebook for more of her beautiful lifestyle photos.

What will baby Cowan be????

Today is the big ultrasound day for us. You know, the one where we find out if this growing babe is a third baby boy or a baby girl!! I am SO. EXCITED. However, we won't be spilling the gender beans until after Easter. We have plans for a fun Easter themed gender reveal at our family party on April 20th. That 11 day wait to share the news may be my undoing. Also, not telling Oren is going to drive me crazy!! It is just too risky telling him, there are some...I won't mention any names (you know who you are) who would try to pry it out of him and I know he would cave. I mean, he is 6 after all. So, until then, I thought it would be fun to share what all the old wives tales and various other myths have to say this baby is. I'd love to get your input as well so please leave a comment! ;)

Family guesses:
Jeremy- GIRL
Oren- GIRL
Ephram- Has no idea how his life is about to change, my sweet momma's boy.
Me- I keep that a secret until after since they say that mother's intuition is 70% right we don't want anyone to have an unfair advantage in our little guessing game. ;)
aunt LeAnn- GIRL
uncle Jason- GIRL
aunt Sharon- GIRL
Granna- GIRL
Paw-Paw- "one of each" (for the record, there is only one in there and he knows it!)
uncle Jacob- BOY

Seems to me there is some wishful thinking going on here!! I'm happy to have another beautiful baby no matter the gender.

And because I hate to leave a post with no photos here are a few. My 8 week ultrasound and a few belly shots. Today I am 18 weeks 4 days. I'll do another belly shot at 19 or 20 weeks.

a day in the life | march edition

It feels as if it has rained all of March. There were a few glimpses of spring here and there but it hasn't been near enough for me or these boys! We're ready for a bit of warmth and sunny days to play outside. After school on this rainy day we were rather bored so I pulled out some art supplies and let the boys exercise their creative sides. :) Ephram spent some time painting himself and seriously considered licking the paint up several times. Oren chose to paint a portrait of a dragon toy. He stressed over his ability to draw and paint it but with a little encouragement he did a really fantastic job.

Texas Ave, Baytown - Maxine - Galveston Senior 2013 - {Katy TX Photographer}

Considering in a few months she will have graduated from high school a year ago, I'd say it's time to share a blog post with some images!! This is my beautiful sister Maxine. How she is not a little girl anymore is beyond me. She was seriously the cutest baby. I have three younger siblings. I'm 8 years older than Jacob, 11 years older than Max, and 13 years older than Niki! Either way, because of the age gap I can vividly remember when each of them were born. 

I'm so proud to be your sister Maxine and cannot wait for this summer when you marry your love! Hopefully I won't be so hugely pregnant that I'm waddling down the isle. ;)

There are a lot of images in this because well, she's my sister and I couldn't just throw an handful up. We also did a few of her and her boyfriend. Although, now that they are engaged we need to do new photos!!! (maxine, you need to get with me on this!)
