Mom blog

These were taken when Brighton was 3 weeks old, I was just practicing with shooting in manual one morning and she has become my favorite subject to practice on. I've been trying different things with editing so I love how clean these came out! Seeing these pictures makes me realize her stork bite has faded a ton! I love her cute red mark but I know when she's older, she'll be grateful it's gone haha I think it's so cute and want to remember her little stork bite :)

I've had a hard time blogging (obviously) because I don't know what to write about and I never remember to bring my nice camera with me anywhere! I didn't want to write about Brighton too much. But then I realized that this is MY blog and at the end of the day, I look back on posts for MY memories!! It's my online journal and I need to write about whatever I want to! Brighton is literally my world and if people reading this get bored, then who cares?!

I want to remember how little she was and all of the random things about her. Her cute little noises and squeaks and the way she lights up when I smile at her and say, "Hiiiii Brightonnnn!!!". How she is the most patient little thing, the way she wakes up from her naps in a haze and moves her head all around searching for her binky, eyes closed.  When she throws her arms above her head and makes her legs stick straight to get the perfect stretch. How she stares into my eyes when she breastfeeds and snuggles as close as possible. When she falls asleep mid feed with a milk filled mouth and lets it pour out everywhere because she was too tired to swallow first.  I love her sweet gummy smile and wouldn't be mad if her teeth didn't come in for a while. How sometimes she'll be wide awake but sleepy and start to fuss a little and then all of a sudden close her eyes and she dives into a deep sleep. I love when she wakes up in the morning, eats, and we snuggle and she sleeps on my chest for a few more hours, and when she fusses before bed and we snuggle some more! I am a firm believer that you can never snuggle a sweet baby too much. She's the best thing we could have ever asked for. I love you, Brighton Reese!



  1. Heck yes to all the Brighton posts!! I'm totally becoming a mom blog, too and don't even care... it's where my life is right now and I love it! These picture are amazing - teach me your ways!

  2. Aw! I will never get sick of seeing babies! I love seeing your posts! I had the same thoughts when I had my daughter! It truly is a great space to look back on and I love that I did monthly updates I go back and stalk them like crazy and reminisce on how little she was! you will be so happy to look back on these days when she seemed so big yet so small!


  3. I'm all about sweet squishy baby posts! Bring them on. :) Love all of the sweetness you shared in this post. They grow too dang fast.

  4. Aww, I love this! I vote yes to all the baby posts! You will definitely want to look back on all these sweet memories! :)

  5. I love this!!! You can't go wrong with baby posts.

  6. I had these exact same thoughts, but hey who doesn't love baby spam?! Bring on all the mom blogs! I know how you feel about the stork bite, Leighton had a folded over ear and I was actually sad when it straightened out on its own (but obviously teenage Leighton will be glad it did I'm sure).

  7. Ahhhh I can't get over how darn cute she is!!! LOVE how the photos came out! I'd totally loveeeeee the baby/mom blog posts!! What makes you such a great blogger is that you're personal and you share real feelings and life!! Definitely share what feels natural and right to you!! You're awesome and no matter what you write about on here you've got a loyal reader from me haha!! (:

  8. The emotion I feel reading these words and the way you talk about your daughter is so sweet! I know you told me in the past you didn't have the best relationship with your mother, so you were nervous and so excited to have a daughter. You are doing wonderful by her! Blogging should be fun. Just write about you and your life. That's what matters. (:
