9 Months Later

I remember taking this photo like it was yesterday...it's hard to believe it was 9months (may as well say 10 months ago). I was 9 months pregnant and the day I took this was 9 days before I gave birth to Xander. I remembered being so ready to get the pregnancy over with so I could meet my little guy.


Here we are 9 months later!

He's bought so much joy into our lives. I smile every single morning because he wakes up with a smile on his face (most mornings). He's going to be 10 months old tomorrow and boy let my tell you, he's a little pistol already! He knows what he wants, he loves to eat, he grunts when he's trying to get my attention. He started cruising around the furniture (teeny tiny steps), his 2 top teeth have just broken through, for a grand total of 4 pearly whites. He responds to Donovan so well. If I ask him "where's Donovan?" he looks in his direction, it's so adorable and Donovan really gets a kick out of it. We love this little boy so much, he has changed this whole family. Of course we've always loved each other very much, but Xander brings in a different element. Watching the way Donovan and Troy love him, makes my love for them grow even more and vice versa. KWIM?

Anyway, thanks for listening to me ramble...enjoy your week!

I like the fact you used a silhouette to capture a joyous moment but at a two different times in your life. I also liked that you went back to the same spot to capture the second photo and used the same silhouette technique. It allowed me to focus on the event rather than the details of the photo. Love it!

Both pics are awesome!!! I LOVE the name Xander - it was in the running during my last pregnancy, but I had another girl. She'll be 6 months old next week. Time sure flies, huh?
