You may have seen James on my social media as the cute boy with the long hair that hangs out with Payton a lot (we may have started the hashtag #JandPayPay)! Payton and James were born 13 days apart and are already the best of friends just like their mommies! It has been nothing short of a gift to have a friend with a baby at the same exact stage as you. We text each other the most random things all the time but it is great to know we won't judge each other and can be a support system.
Claire is a teacher so she had the summer off which meant we got to hang out once a week the past few months! It was awesome to hang out and have another adult to talk to (especially in the beginning when the babies couldn't even smile at us!) I can't wait to watch these two continue to grow up and be big enough to actually play together as they get older! The past 6 months have been the hardest and best of my life. Enjoy these photos of J and Pay!
March :: 1 Month Old
Pictured: Two new moms who have absolutely NO idea what they are doing. Haha!
Already bored of photos.
Every photo shoot always ends in tears.
It was great being able to use each other's baby stuff when we hung out because we had all of the same gear!
Don't worry, we were right there! It used to make us so nervous to have them up on the counter but then we realized they were 1-month old and could barely move haha.
First Target trip!! It was great except it was so windy outside and my cart blew into the street with the carseat in it. I looked like an idiot running after it haha!
Going for walks was the best. The babies fell asleep every time!
April :: 2 Months Old
Easter Sunday at church!
This was hands down the worst few pictures we took of them. Poor babies were having a bad day and James just wanted to stand on the couch.
May :: 3 Months Old
A match made it heaven.
Emily visited us one week! And now she is due soon with her own sweet babe!
June :: 4 Months Old
Small group cookout!
July :: 5 Months Old
Ah they grew so fast!! And loved taking naps in each other's cribs haha.
Poor James just wanted to play. Payton didn't seem to mind!
August :: 6 Months Old
James had fun playing with Payton's dress. She didn't seem to care!
The past 6 months have felt slow and fast at the same time. The growth to me is insane! But then again, I will be saying the same thing when they turn 1 year. Trying to soak up every second of each day! Wanna see more adorable pictures of James? Check out the family session I did for the Delin family!
