Its been a while since my last post. One of my new year’s resolutions was to try and be more present. Carlota is growing up very quickly, and I am trying to soak it all in. Not to mention we’ve been fighting the cold and flu on and off this entire month. Thankfully it seems like we’re starting to get all better, so fingers crossed it stays that way!
A few weeks ago I was able to bring Carlota home to Canada for a few days. It was very special seeing her explore the place I called home for most of my life. It was a short trip and we mostly stayed home with my parents. Carlota doesn’t get to see her grandparents very often so we were very happy to soak up all those snuggles and kisses.
Valentines day is coming up. I remember when the hubby and I would get dressed up and go for a romantic dinner. This year I don’t see that happening. I think we will spend it at home in our sweats celebrating with our little bug. I wouldn’t even change this for anything. If you are looking for outfit ideas this dress is one of my favorites. I’ve worn it for my maternity photos (here), to a wedding, cocktail hour etc… It comes in a variety of colors and that zipper in the back transforms it from simple and sophisticated to young and chic.
Thanks for reading, I’m looking forward to sharing some new looks with you soon.
I can’t believe it’s already December. Time really does fly when you’re having fun. We are getting ready for our first Christmas with Carlota and there hasn’t been a dull moment. I decided this was the year I was going to start sending Holiday cards to family and friends. I know I’m totally late on that bandwagon but its better late than never. We had our photoshoot on the beach….because why not when you live in LA. No winter wonderland backdrops for us here.
This Christmas we will be heading to Spain to visit family. I’m so excited and I can’t believe we are going in just a few short weeks. This will be a long flight for Carlota, but thankfully our recent trip to NYC will help make us better prepared. On our last flight there was a family with a baby sitting right in front of us. They were baby traveling experts and had all these snacks and teething crackers and opened our eyes to that world…..we have never looked back!!
Here are some of my favorite shots from our family photo shoot. What are your plans for the Holidays?
Baby girl has finally graced us with her presence this Thursday March 26th at 10:48pm, weighing 7 lbs and 1 ounce and 20 1/4 inches long. Carlota Pi-Henderson. I am so overjoyed with emotions and lack of sleep!! hehe We have so much love for her already and she’s only 3 days old. I can’t imagine my life without her and I’m already sad that time is going by so quickly. I want to keep my little princess as this little tiny bundle of joy but I’m also excited to share all of her life experiences with her. So many mixed emotions….I guess that could also be due to all the changing hormones. I can’t wait to share photos and my birth story with you in an upcoming blog post.
Here are a few more of my maternity shoot photos from Bleudog photography. Shawna is amazing and I’m so happy I found her to get photos of this special time. I’m thrilled I can finally hold my baby girl, but a part of me still misses feeling her little kicks inside my belly. I miss having her so close to me 24/7.
I love this photo of my first child Pinxo. Shows the love we have for each other. He has been so good with little Charlie and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I think he’s still a little confused of what’s happening in our house and who this new addition is, but he’s so gentle with her. He is her little body guard. He needs to be close to her, but doesn’t get too close. He also occasionally likes to smell and kiss her. I think he’s a little jealous now that our attention is shared between the two of them. He was an only child for 7 years so that’s totally understandable!!
