Family Birthday Shenanigans | Leo Turns Two!

Sep

15

On September 12, 2018 Leo turned TWO years old! It’s so crazy to be able to say “I have a three year old and a two year old”. I’m sure when my boys are teenagers we’ll be getting the “twins?” question. haha

We celebrated Leo’s second birthday with Grandma, Pop-pop, Aunt Mimi, Her (practically fiancè) boyfriend Sebastian, and his sweet son Avery. We invited everyone over for bubbles, lasagna, presents, and cake! Leo LOVES bubbles. When he gets on a “bubble kick” every one in the house gets lightheaded blowing bubbles so they can hear his over-joyed squeals.

Jamie had a hard time realizing the day was just for Leo. We saw this coming and were prepared with a little toy for him, too. When he started getting bummed and restless during Leo’s presents, Clynn pulled him into the kitchen to give him his new little transformer. He was thrilled and happy for Leo the rest of the day!

The HIGHLIGHT of Leo’s birthday was when we all sang “Happy Birthday” to him. We sat him up on a bar stool (something he rarely does), lit the candle on his surprise monster cake, and sang. I watched as his eyes lit up brighter than the candle as he clearly came to realize, for the first time, that we were all there to love on and celebrate him. Towards the end of the song he was overcome with joy and let out the happiest sound you’ve ever heard. I think if it had lasted much longer he may have cried happy tears. I am so happy this was caught on video! Watching his realization in that moment is and will be one of my most cherished memories for life.

Happy Birthday our sweet Leo Author. You are SO LOVED.

Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

We’ve officially been nomadic for 18 months and we find ourselves getting cozy in Lake Chelan, Washington for the summer! With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
