Even though our sweet baby is only just shy of six months old, I find myself saying to my husband all the time, “Remember when Henry…” And whether I’m reminiscing on his squished little baby face right after he was born or watching a video of him waking up full of smiles from when he was only three months old, it often feels as if he’s been here forever. Having Henry has made me realize so many things about life and about being present. One of the greatest things I’ve learned is that life is truly measured by memories and moments.
It’s not only so important to me to live and revel in these moments, but to capture them as well. Time has never seemed to fly by so quickly! I’m always snapping pictures with my camera or phone, and I’m always quick to jump at the opportunity of a family photoshoot. Right after Henry turned 5 months old, we had a family session with the amazing Jessica Bordner (who did my maternity session) and I’m SO glad we did this! It’s so much fun getting dressed up and even more so with a baby. I had ordered a pair of Freshly Picked baby moccs for Henry that I had been saving in his closet for a perfect occasion like this!
I have loved Freshly Picked (but who doesn’t?!) from even before Henry was born and always wanted him to have a pair (or five..or ten..or..). They’re SO CUTE. Not only do they come in every color imaginable, but they release seasonal styles as well (like these cuties) that are always to die for! They smell amazing like fresh leather, are such high quality and they’re so super soft for our baby’s precious feet. I can’t wait to see what they come up with for summertime. I’m hoping for a lobster print!
