I was thinking this month’s 10 on 10 could be themed “baby prepping” but as I went through my images from the last four weeks, I don’t really have that many of our baby prepping projects. We’ve been that busy (and I’ve been sitting down more!). My awesome husband built a twin bed, I hacked an Ikea dresser, we disassembled, moved and reassembled two different cribs, washed and assembled two swings and a bassinet, we’ve double just about every recipe we’ve made (and devoted most of one day to making freezer meals), and had a little mini stay-cation.  You’d think I’d have loads of quality family photos from that but the weather was awful so we don’t.  Maybe next month will be of everything completed… with a baby?!

This was a month ago. I wanted to do an updated shot for comparison but we haven’t done it.  So much for my weekly belly shots.Family Photography | Helena Alabama Child Photography | Helena Alabama

We grew real wheat grass for our Easter baskets this year.  It was a major success, fun, and cheap.

Who would have thought my little mess maker would hate playing in shaving cream? Must be because it was authorized.
