long beach, ca maternity photography: no sleep till..

any beastie boys fans will know how to finish that sentence, and every time i think of chris and amber's baby girl coming in just about 7 weeks, the song pops into my head. not just because i remember the sleepless nights during those last few, long weeks before delivery: how the anticipation, the growing belly, and the baby moving all night long would keep me awake, but also because their daughter's name will be Brooklyn! i love her name, and am anticipating finally meeting her as well! 

we found this hidden little field of dried out sticks. there was something gorgeous about amber, about to bring a new life into the world, sitting in the middle of a dry and dormant field.

project 52, week 7: i never thought the day would come

that i wouldn't have to change another diaper! 
we have been arm deep in diapers for the last 4 years, and i have prayed about the day i wouldn't have to change another stinky one. 
this week, W decided he wants to use the big boy potty, all on his own and
 at only 21 months if i may add! 
i foresee a pampers-less future soon! 
go W!!
