Welcome Baby Cal

Remember in May when we went to the "preview" for Norah Kate's new baby!?!
If not, you can read all about it here.

Barrett and I wore our BLUE, and hoped that one of my BFE friends would finally have a BOY!

We were so excited to find out that they WERE!!

And now...the sweet little baby boy is here!

Callum John
October 17th, 2010 at 12:17 p.m.
8 pounds, 3 ounces
20 inches

He is so mellow and precious!
I just want to show up at Megan's door every day and snuggle him!
She might get tired of me =)

I did enjoy every second of his newborn shoot on Wednesday morning, though! He wins the award for BEST newborn I've ever shot! It took me about 30 minutes of snuggling, patting and rocking (this was complete torture for me, as you can imagine) to get him sleeping. But, once he was out...he was OUT .... O-U-T, out! I moved that little guy into a hundred positions, took hats on and off of him, took off his diaper, and he just kept snoozin'. Another reason I love him so much already!

I am swamped with editing from sessions over the last couple weeks, but I couldn't resist doing just one to show Megan and Brent. This is one of my favorites!! Megan always has the cutest Fall decorations, and they made the perfect subtle background! The basket was from our friend, Audra! It was just the right size for Cal! Thanks, Audra!!

Welcome to this world, Callum!! You are one very loved little man.
I am so excited that Barrett will have another little boy to play with at all the BFE gatherings, 
and I can't wait to watch you grow!

I was very sad to hear that our local pumpkin patch wasn't open this year.
So, we planned to take Barrett to another patch in either Augusta or El Dorado.
Then, I looked at my session schedule for October and was even sadder. 
Not a single weekend I didn't have something scheduled.

Luckily, Justin had taken a Monday off of work (after his survival trip), so after my session that morning, we took Barrett to the pumpkin patch!! I had really been wanting to go to Walters' Pumpkin Patch,  but once we got on the road, we both decided it was just too far for that day. So we went to Applejack's instead.  It was a cute little patch with lots of activities for Barrett, and he had a blast. We stayed until the closed that afternoon, and Barrett was not ready to leave!

I could not believe my shy little guy went down this BIG slide all by himself!
Not even a moment of hesitation! I was so proud ;)

He got to the bottom and wanted to go again!

That's our pumpkin patch adventure for this year!!

8 years

Eight years ago today, I married my high-school sweetheart.
The love of my life.

It just keeps getting better with every year.

If you keep up with my blog, you've already seen these new pictures of me and my hubby!
BUT, I love them, so I'll show them off again. 

If you want to see flashback pics of our wedding day, 


This is the moment I fell in love with him all over again.....

I love you, Babe!
Happy EIGHT years...and here's to many, many more!

To celebrate, we're taking a weekend trip to Manhattan. 
Going to the K-State game with friends, and out in Aggieville!

We may be on the verge of 30 and 31...
married for eight years....
with a toddler...
but we're not old fogies yet!

We'll celebrate in the town that really tested our relationship.
Four years of long-distance love, but we made it!
