Last week I didn’t get a chance to post my rays of sun for the week as we were traveling back from Savannah, Ga after a quick trip visiting with my sister and brother in law, my crazy cute nephews and my parents and youngest brother who had come in for the week. These Savannah visits are becoming a sweet ray of sun having my sister, brother-in-law and nephews so close, not to mention that Savannah is a a pretty sweet little city. Last Saturday was the 1st of March and every 1st of the month to celebrate Sophie’s birthday we launch balloons to celebrate her… writing notes on each of the balloons and launching as many as months old she would be. Over the past several months, without even planning it, God has allowed us to spend this little tradition with close family and friends. This month was no exception and as we reached the 6 month mark since Sophie’s birth it was especially sweet to get to spend it with family and watch even Isaac and Jordan (my little nephews) write sweet messages to Sophie. Somehow, celebrating Sophie on these monthly markers feels a little lighter, a little less heavy, and a lot more celebratory when we do it with friends and family.
A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished the first of several photo albums we’re making of Sophie’s life (who knew 42 weeks, 2 days and 10 hours of life would fit into so many albums?!). I found a fabulous photo book site… Artifact Uprising and I am very impressed with the outcome. We have been counting down the days to get her first photo book and it finally came this week. I was religiously tracking the whereabouts of this package and the day it was supposed to arrive, somehow I checked it and it said the package couldn’t be delivered because there was no one home… what?? I quickly looked out my window, spotted the FedEx truck and ran.. ran hard to get my package. Apparently, I didn’t need to run because it would have been dropped off at the office, however, I was taking no chances. So here are some of my favorite spreads of this 166 page (yes, I did say 166 page) book of every photo, every facial expression, every little angle of Sophie’s body and every moment of our “10 precious hours” with her. I cannot stop looking through it! And I continue to be so grateful that so much of those 10 hours were documented…
And last but certainly not least, to cap off a sweet week of rays of sun peeking in Kevin and I got to head to Magic Kingdom today to watch the premiere of the new parade, the Festival of Fantasy at Magic Kingdom! Now, truth be told I don’t get super excited to head to Disney very often, but today I was slightly giddy with excitement over this new parade. We ended up watching it with many cast members that we know who work there and if there’s any group that could boost the magic of an already magical moment it would be friends who work there… we were not disappointed! Hope you find your way to Disney sometime soon and can catch this new parade!
