Family Photos

Happy, happy Friday, friends!!  Our days have been kicking off a little bit (or a lot) earlier lately, out of nowhere, Waverly started waking up around 6, about an hour & a half earlier than she used to.  It’s definitely not my favorite timing since it pretty much coincided with my summer break, I love her something fierce but had been looking forward to waking up once it was actually light outside for months.  We tried pushing back her bedtime, changing her nap schedule, & attempting to rock her back to sleep, none of it worked so we gave up.  Instead, we decided to welcome our early-riser with open arms (& halfway closed eyes) each morning.
It’s honestly become one of my favorite times of the day, Waverly is not much of a “sit still” kind of girl so the fact that she actually sits with us in bed for a good amount of time each morning is pretty incredible.  We watch Sesame Street, cuddle, & laugh, it makes me appreciate her, our family of three, & this extra time we get together.  One day I know I will desperately want these moments back.
We recently had some family pictures taken, I’m so excited to share some of our favorites!!  I love the ones of the three of us & also am officially obsessed with the pictures of just Waverly.  Our photo wall (& hearts) are very full right now.

Wishing you all the happiest weekend with your loved ones!

    Beautiful photos! I'm starting to think about ours… We are getting them taken in 2 months and I can't decide what we all should wear and what props (if any) to use.

    Your photos are seriously gorgeous.
    We have the same early morning issues. Between 5:30 and 6:00 AM we are up and ready to go (and by "we" I mean Marcus). Like you, we tired everything to get the morning wake-up call pushed back. No dice. Eventually the kids will want to sleep in, right? 🙂

    Beautiful!!! No fun about waking up earlier, but you are right. All we can do is embrace it and enjoy it while it lasts. 🙂
