Can We Start Over?

I like new.

My new baby girl is still very much new. And very much girl.

Today is not only a new day, but the beginning of a whole new week, and for me, some fresh perspective.


I'd like to start over.

  1. I think i will join you in starting over (maybe in a diffrent way lol). Today is my deep breathe day. A new start to a new week. The problems or fights of last week are done. So i take a deep breath and start anew!

  2. Oh yes! I know we aren't promised another day, but remembering that God won't condemn you for having a bad day or messing up is reassuring that I can do think Momma thing all over tomorrow!

  5. A fresh new attitude! And another lovely picture. Allison said, I haven't seen Stephanie's baby for a long long time. As if.

    Have a great week!

  8. I absolutely adore the pic of Ivy. They grow up so fast! I have a picture of Jackson just like that and I look at it now and want to cry because it has just gone by way too fast! I'm with you sister, on starting over this week! I'm needing a fresh start too!

    Hope you have a wonderful week!

  13. Beth is so talented...explain to me again why she wondered if she should do photography professionally?

    The picture is one that you are going to look back on the day she graduates, the day she marries and wonder where that tiny scrap of perfection went.

  18. Starting over is a great idea! Bad days do happen, but there is always the promise of another day, another hour, another minute. Keep your head up, girl. You're doing an amazing job and you have a beautiful family.

    I LOVE the photo Beth took. So, so sweet! Ashlee's from yesterday was great too. So unique and cozy!!

  22. I think the Lord, in His wisdom, was so merciful to give us new days, new weeks, new months, and new years.

    Because He knew we'd need fresh starts. Often.

    :)

    Happy Sunday.

  24. Beautiful photo! I definitely need a start over after this morning. My son three about five HUGE temper tanrums at church and my husband has been away at a conference all weekend. I am ready for a fresh start!

  25. Oh my! Gorgeous photos. I want a baby just so Ashlee and Beth will come take pictures. And the whole IV thing, I thinks it's really cool! Her name was always meant to be.

  37. The photo of Ivy is amazing! A-maz-ing. Genius, actually. If only baby-crazed women like myself could get pregnant just by looking at cute babies like yours!
