9 months? Check!
And actually, as I finish putting this blog post together I just looked back at his entire birth journey and year of life so far (well, only 3/4 of the way through that first year any way) and I am totally misty eyed. I can’t believe how much he’s grown.. he was such a little love bug at his 3 month session with those big puppy eyes and adorable hairless head (all of which has remained unchanged) and now I can’t believe he’s already 9 months old. I’ve spent so much time with this bunch that looking back on these is staring to feel like looking at my own life’s photographs and memories..
But enough of the gushy stuff.. now that William is 9 months old, we decided to change things up and enjoy his summer session with a real ‘Day in the Life Of’ type feel to it.. we hung out a whole morning, spending sunrise eating watermelon on the beach, grabbing breakfast together before going back home where we played with all of Will’s toys and of course took the dogs for a walk down the block like we always do. By far my favorite moment this time around was the way that William crawled toward the water like the sand was on fire and splashed around in it.. I thought for a second he was even going to dive underwater and take a swim lol!
Just like always, it was pretty rad
Anyway enjoy some of my favorites below from our morning together. And thanks a million to Will and his family for truly letting me into their hearts, I really appreciate your friendship and am both excited and sad to see you again soon for William’s last session of his first year of life XO
(oh and PS, to the couple that we all met on the beach, just in case you ever see this.. a big congrats to your new addition coming soon!! )
(PSS, this is my first Let the Kids Dress Themselves weekly post for their Summer Shot List!)
