We began to wonder when- I began eating everything in sight at the daily Christmas celebrations, when hourly bathroom stops were needed on our way to the mountains of Vermont, when the smells of  dinner sent me running to the bathroom, when my  body looked like it was curving in a way my “teenage” build never had before, and when I was winded after one ski run down the mountain. I remember looking at each other, Matt and I, thinking… ” We must be, we must be?!”

The ride home from the slopes of Vermont back to Boston felt so long as I excitedly but also nervously thought of taking the test.

At first only one line appeared…and my heart sunk.  I went to leave the bathroom when Matt said, “look!” And then it was there, the second line had appeared!

My emotions and thoughts sailed from pure joy and excitement to…” is this real?!”

My small amount of disbelief disappeared in the next few days as I began to enter what would be months of severe morning sickness.  As I ran multiple times to the bathroom each day and struggled to eat the smallest amounts of food…I knew a baby was definitely on the way.

In these last weeks the sickness has begun to slowly fade, but a new sign; a much welcomed sign shows that our little girl will be here soon!  After weeks of asking Matt, ” Can you tell?” His answer is yes…the baby belly has arrived.  And I couldn’t be more excited!!

Oh and if you are wondering, we are due September 3rd (that means we are more than half way)!

(And yes, I will now be booking again. You can schedule through July and I will be returning at the end of October)

The kicks are getting stronger and the days are growing shorter as you await the arrival of your baby boy.  Soon very soon he will be in your arms!

Courtney you radiated as you sat there in your sunlit filled bedroom with your hand on your belly; you looked absolutely beautiful.

Please forgive my LONG absence…

I have been busy creating ten tiny toes and ten little fingers.  Yes, you read that correctly…we are expecting a new addition to our family later this Summer!

I will be back soon as I hope and pray for strength in the coming days and weeks.  Soon there will be updates on surviving severe morning sickness, our miracle story, belly pictures, posts on planning for a baby (…ooo I have so many shopping dreams) and of course upcoming client sessions.

till then,

Cassandra

P.S. Stay tuned for the gender reveal!!! Eeek!!!

It smelled of dates as I walked in to meet you. Down the kitchen hallway your Grandma, all the way from Singapore, cooked to make you and your momma strong.  Everyone was there: Mom, Dad, Grandpa, Grandma and you…wide awake you.And you really could care less about sleeping. You, baby Mitchell, were ready to see the world.

Baby Mitchell,

You are surrounded by such a loving family.  It was a blessing to spend the day with you and with them.   May you grow to be as sweet and kind as your grandparents, as wise as your father, and may you be filled with the joy of your mother. Happy New Year little one!
