    The portraits in this wedding are some of my favorites ever.  Yes, EVER. And the sweet photos of this couple and their adorable little girl make me wish my son Charlie had been at our wedding…you know, if he had been born yet.  This is one wedding to swoon over with your favorite cup of coffee or tea.  Sip slowly and savor…

    {advice for planning couples}
    I think the best advice is to plan a wedding that reflects who you truly are as a couple. It is a day in your life together and should feel as such, on that day, and when you look back on it.

    We have a large family and, at the time a daughter (we now have a son too), and it was very important to have our wedding reflect the importance our family plays in our lives. We involved our parents in the ceremony, as well as my husband’s godfather, and my brother is the one that married us.  We also included our daughter in the ceremony by giving her a necklace from both of us. From the beginning, we knew that we wanted her to be a big part of that day because she was the one that had already made us a family. Every detail of the wedding was made with our family in mind. I chose a dress that would allow me to play with my daughter, we picked food that was kid-friendly (as we have over 15 nieces and nephews).  We love the outdoors and have simple tastes and also wanted the wedding to reflect that. 
     
    I’ve poured over these photos for hours and I’m still not tired of them.  Just so so lovely.  And congrats to the couple on their second little one!

    •  THREE MONTHS OLD (and two days)! Wow. I cannot believe it. You might be the smiley-est baby I've ever met, which is saying a lot considering how miz you were your first few weeks of life. You are doing so much better with your reflux (thank you Prevacid!) and can finally lay flat, don't scream in your infant seat, and mostly tolerate the bath. You still freak out a little when I try to take you places, but staying home for three months will do that to ya. We're slowly venturing out, taking walks, and getting a bit more social. You still love to nurse and be worn but you also love being put in your bouncer and on your playmat/gym. You are babbling like crazy, laughing, smiling at your brothers a lot (even Calvin, even when he's a little rough with his love). They both love you so much and think you are so cute. Tonight Charlie said "Quincy, how cute are you!? No, seriously, HOW CUTE ARE YOU!?" You weigh a whopping 15 pounds (your brothers were only 13.5 at 4 months!) You have so many rolls I have to make sure you aren't hiding food or growing a garden in them. And you have sweaty feet! It's so weird. Your night sleep is not bad but not amazing - you sleep from 7:30 or 8 pm till 1:30 or 2 am, eat, and then go back to sleep but lately are waking up every 1.5-2 hrs after that even though you don't seem to be hungry. You still sleep in the rock-n-play so I'm hoping to get you in your bassinet soon since your reflux is improving. Calvin was sleeping 10-12 straight hours already. But you take great naps - one 3 hour nap in the morning and usually a 2 hr nap in the afternoon. You're pretty dependable that way, and for the record both of your brothers struggled with naps for a while. I'd rather have more night sleep but I'll take what I can get. You've discovered your hands and are trying to suck your thumb/fist. When you cry, you really cry. Like full on wailing or no crying at all. And you have white duck fluff sticking up all over your head. I love how you stretch and pucker your lips when I take you out of the swaddle and how when you first wake up and focus your eyes on me you greet me with the biggest smile ever. Every single time.  #quincysmonthbymonth  Los Angeles is such a show off in springtime.
       Neighborhood strollin' with 2 of ma 3 homies #calvinandquincy  Boy mom milestone today - the first time we had to have something removed from an ear. Saved the blue pebble for the baby book so I could show Charlie why his dad has new white hairs in his beard. Never a dull moment. I guess I'm lucky it's taken this long to happen... #beerme #charlesdashiell
