Hey there. Yeah, I’m talking to you, the mothers of other one-year-olds, mothers who’ve also been through the ups and downs of past year as a newbie parent. I thought we had an understanding and a circle of support going on.

Oh. Right. National Blog Posting Month. I was supposed to post everyday. Well, when the blog Gods named November the month they must have forgotten about Thanksgiving. You know. The weekend where you go into caloric and family overload, become sleep deprived from Black Friday, and spend the night at your grandparents where a WiFi signal is about a strong as your dessert-resisting willpower.
So I fell off the wagon. Sorry. When I wasn’t working over the holiday I was having a really great time. I figure fun is a good reason not to post.
I want to take a little flashback. Thanksgiving 2010…
I don’t care that much about turkey or pumpkin pie. I’m not searching for any great Black Friday deals. I only have one wish this holiday.
All I want for Thanksgiving is 8 uninterrupted, peaceful hours of sleep.
Charlotte is in bed. I have to work tomorrow and Friday earlier than the law should allow, so this will have to suffice for my contribution to National Blog Posting Month.
I’m very thankful for your understanding.
These are Charlotte’s 12 month pictures by Three Oaks Photography. The photographer, Jack, does this package for Baby’s 1st Year with Newborn, 3 month, 6 month, 9 month, and 12 month pics.
He did our maternity shoot as well. I didn’t make it some months so our 1st year pics ended up newborn (by a different photographer, the wonderful Kimber Lynn) about 4 months, about 8 months and now these 12 months all by Jack.
I’m pretty psyched with how they turned out. We lost the coats pretty quick because it got warm. I didn’t mean for Charlotte and I to be super matchy-matchy in our chocolate dresses, but I think it works. Who knows, they may end up on the Christmas card so I should go ahead and say “Happy Holidays!” Seriously, I could have posted all the proofs. I loved how these turned out. Be honest and tell me which ones you like best.
