How Old Is Lawson?

Lilypie First Birthday tickers

I'm not very good at keeping this blog up, but the new year has been an extremely busy one. Six week photography class in Atlanta makes the weeks just fly by; and before I know it, it's been a month and a half since I've posted. But I'm loving my class! I've definitely learned a lot and I'm seeing some improvement in my photos. We went on a field trip to Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta one Saturday morning and I must say, I fell in love with the place. I'm making plans to go back in the Spring when it's more 'green' and the flowers are in bloom. If you don't know much about it you should check out their website,

Well Georgia finally got it's first significant snowfall and we were able to dress Lawson up in her snow suit and take her out for some pictures in the snow. I definitely can't wait til she's big enough to really play in the snow. I'm ready to go sledding, build snowmen, make snow angels and have snowball fights with her.

Happy New Year!

I know I haven't been very good at updating lately, but the holiday season has been kinda hectic. Lawson took her first plane ride to go visit Nana and Poppa in NC for Christmas. She did really good on the plane. The only time that she got fussy is when she was sleepy, but other than that the trip was smooth sailing. Too bad she's too young to start earning frequent flyer miles, because I think she's going to love to travel just like her mom.

And of course she put on the charm on the airplane. She was one of five babies on our flight, but she seemed to capture everyone's attention. She was so cute and charming that one lady asked if we would mind if she took her picture. She said that she was a landscape photographer and had never done portraits, but that Lawson was so beautiful that she just had to photograph her. After the flight she asked for my email address so she could send me the photos that she took. I must say, if this was her first time doing portrait photography, I'd love to see some of her landscape work; because I think these pictures of Lawson are amazing, I'm glad I agreed to let her photograph her.

Sleep through the night! I mean the WHOLE night (8:30pm-6:30am), we had to wake her up this morning to get her ready to go to the babysitter. And a well rested baby will give you this.....

the most precious smile that you ever saw!

First UNSCHEDULED trip to the doctor

Well we had our first unscheduled trip to the doctor today. Lawson's been having this runny nose for about three or four weeks now. We thought it was just because she was teething. Yes you read that correctly, our 5 month old has two teeth coming in on the bottom. The first tooth broke the surface on her 4 month birthday, but back to the doctor visit. So we thought the runny nose was due to her teething, but it's gotten gradually worse and then she developed a cough with it. This past weekend Sean & I were battling our own sickness (you know typical winter stuff) and Lawson decided that she was going to stop being a good eater and sleeper. So we took off the the doctors office first thing this morning. Diagnosis......double ear infection. I had no idea that my baby was so sick. She never showed any signs that her ears were bothering her other than not really eating very well. So she was giving a round of good ole amoxicillin and we'll see how things go. Oh and by the way, she's up to 15 lbs. now. So as you can see she's a good eater and if that ever slows down it a sure sign to us that something is wrong.

Apparently this is what Lawson will look like. So mark you calendars and come back in 2014 and see if it's accurate!

What do you think about my little new baby Lawson? - What will your baby look like?
