Month 4 brought so much joy! We got to experience all the magic with Scarlett’s first Christmas and New Years! And Scarlett finally got to meet her aunt Kristin (my sister) since she was able to come home from Ireland for the holidays! It really was magical! Can’t wait to see where month 5 takes us!
This past Saturday the Kirchner clan went to Corsi Tree farm to get some portraits for our first Christmas card EVER! This is our first photoshoot as a family (unless you count when Scarlett was in my belly) and I could not love them more!! We really gave Tessah (our photographer) a run for her money! Scarlett spit up all over me within 2 minutes of being there, and Indigo kept running off and whining to go see the other doggos that were also at the tree farm! I honestly assumed we would have NO photos with everyone cooperating and I was pleasantly surprised to have SO MANY great photos! It made it sooo difficult to pick out one for our Christmas card this year!
Another month has come and gone, and it is so bittersweet. Bitter, because my little teeny-tiny baby isn’t so little anymore, and sweet because I am really looking forward to this month. Why you may ask? Because this month will be Scarlett’s first Christmas! Ah! One of the things I looked forward to most about becoming a mother was sharing my love for celebrating every little holiday and occasion- and Christmas is the most magical of all! So I am really going to try to embrace every single day of this 4th month, and make it the most wonderful month thus far!
I don’t know why, but I feel like in this past month we went from having a little baby to having a little human!!! Scarlett is getting soooo smart and learning so many things! I am in awe! Infancy really does fly by! She is already getting so dang big and chunky and I love it! Each time a new roll shows up on her thigh, my heart grows 8 times!
When I think of Warhol I think of three things: Marilyn Monroe, Tomato Soup and his crazy platinum hair! With there being three in our family now, I thought it was the perfect time to bring this costume to life!
What do you get when you combine a little bit of rain with a little bit of sunshine? A rainbow! I have been DYING to make this costume for years, and have always vowed that when Ian and I had a baby that this would be our first costume! I am so beyond thrilled to finally be able to do it!
Our baby girl is officially 2 months old today! Some days it feels like it was just yesterday that we brought her home, and others it feels like she has been in our lives for years! Either way, having Scarlett in the world with us makes each day so much more adventurous, beautiful, challenging, hilarious, lovely and colorful. She is truly the best thing that has ever happened to me!
It seems just like yesterday that I was bringing my baby home from the hospital, and now she is 1 month old?! I know everyone says that time flies by when you have a baby, but dang! This isn’t fair!! I love watching her grow and learn new things, but also at the same time, I just want to keep her my tiny baby forever! I keep reminding myself this on our sleepless nights- one day she will be grown and not want to cuddle with mama anymore, so I have to enjoy it all while it lasts!
On August 2nd, our lives changed forever. We welcomed a beautiful, bright-eyed (and sassy) baby girl. I’d like to introduce you to Miss Scarlett Magnolia Bardot Kirchner.
Excuse me while I cry… This month officially marks 9 months of pregnancy with our baby Scarlett. 9 months. Full term baby!
