As I sat down to rock our daughter to sleep today, I once again found myself thinking about how blessed I am. Putting her to bed at night is really one of my favorite times of the day. I get to pray and reflect on the day as she cuddles quietly in my arms. When I finished praying she quietly took her binky out of her mouth and whispered, “amen” … how precious she is and how lucky I am to be her mother!

I just want to savor every minute. I was grateful today to be able to watch and play with her as Donny did a newborn shoot… she was in such good spirits and giggled for what felt like hours! It truly is hard to imagine that just 1.5 years ago she was just as tiny as the little baby that was in our studio today… the time truly goes by way too quickly. With that in mind, I can not imagine how I will feel when our daughter becomes a senior in high school — ready to take on the world.

I’m sure that is just how Cori’s mom feels… Cori is going to be a senior this next year! I have posted just a few pics from our recent photo session as a sneak peek. Cori — I know you and the family are in Hawaii, so I hope you can see these from there! :)
