Amy in Texas

What a glorious time in your life. Enjoy every minute!


Gorgeous words and emotions.


love how the cardi turned out! I'm loving seeing the summer over your end when it is so chilly here in Melbourne!


I can't even find the words to say how happy I am for you in your motherhood!


Those eyes, those chubby cheeks, that ginger hair! Pure adorableness. You must be over the moon. :)


....and I think that's the first crying babe we've seen, absolutely adorable!


What a fun summer memory. Swimming is always a big summer memory around here
It is only gonna get so much better that she loves the water. Have fun and stay cool.


Beautiful, Alicia. So happy for you.


I love how beautifully you capture these emotions... in words and in pictures.


What a nice post. You'll always remember Amelia's first summer and the way she took to the water. She's beautiful and has such an expressive face. She looks like a very fun little girl.


One of the best things about raising a child is experiencing the world all over again for the first time.


Water babies are so much fun! Love the photos as always. Foodie faces are adorable!!! And do I spy Vietnamese food with fish sauce? YUMMY!! Enjoy!!

From one mama to another, this touched my heart so deeply. Thank you for giving me this realization that Yes -it's all about them reaching for more and more, then helping them explore what they are reaching for! I never want my babies to stop reaching!
