One Year Ago. Columbus Baby Photography

One year ago…

..this little angel was born…

Bentley.  One Year Big.And this little guy became a big brother.  He’s fulfilling the role quite well!

Cutest family.  I love this!
Raewin seriously is the best Momma and sweetest person ever.  She is always so very thoughtful and makes sure everyone around her knows how much she appreciates them.  Pixie gets little handmade cards in the mail from her littles.  “Hugs for Valentines Day” with the kids’ little hand prints and flowers with their precious little faces in the bloom for Mother’s Day.  So very sweet!  I love you, Rae!

Okay, so it’s the middle of May and it was really only 46 degrees out.  Bentley was trying to be a little trooper but she was FREEZING.

Just one year ago, you made your family the happiest they’ve every been, Bug.  You were born.  We love you SO!
And a flashback because it really did happen in a FLASH…

Newborn.3 Months.6 Months.9 Months.

Happy One Year, Sweetie.  Xoxoxoxooxoxox!

And a little glimpse into Bentley’s life from Momma’s eyes…

What is your favorite memory during her first year of life?
There have been so many! One of my favorites is when she started using her first phrase ‘Uh Oh’. She would actually use it in the right context- when she would drop a toy- “Uh Oh!”, when she would throw her sippy cup- “Uh Oh!”

Do you have a funny story or something that happened in her first year that you’d like to share?
Throughout her first year, we found when she was extremely fussy, if we sang “the wheels on the bus”, she would stop fussing. If we stopped singing, she would start fussing again. So, there have been a lot of rounds of ‘wheels on the bus’ this past year- Blaze even sings it to her.

What age/month has been your favorite and why?
She finally started coming out of her serious shell around 11 months and her personality really started to shine. She started smiling, laughing, and socializing a lot more.


Favorite Animal- Stuffed- “Dot” the ladybug. Real- Kitty Cats
Favorite Food- Goldfishies and Pretzels
Favorite Toy- Cups. Loves to put anything and everything in any kind of cup, and then toss it around.

    Crystal- I have no words. All I can do is sit here, look at these beautiful photos over and over again, tear up and smile. Thank you, thank you for the years of amazing memories you have blessed my family with.
