Oh how I love a birthday. A chance to be surrounded by the people that love you and make you feel special. It is a designated day to celebrate your life and be reminded of all the blessings. This year, I am most thankful for my health and the privilege of being Canaan's mama! I can't wait to see what the future holds!
My heart is so full after spending time with my squad -- the girls that have been there through thick and thin and bring out the best of me every time I see them. This reunion was extra special because three of us have had babies since the last time we were all together. Here is an overhaul of pictures from the special day... and best of all we all vowed to make this an annual tradition!
Our sweet neighbors gave us a gift certificate for a newborn photo shoot with the incredible Jeannie Collins. We are so grateful for her time and talent, and we will always cherish these captured gems.
We scheduled the photo shoot in advance, and since Canaan arrived early, he was almost 1 month old in these pictures... just a few days shy of his first smile.
Here are some of my favorites.
My sweet boy! I wonder if his eyes will stay blue like mine!
