I am a huge fan of half birthdays! Who doesn’t love a good reason to celebrate! I also love birthdays, so this comes as no surprise. They are the perfect reason to shower someone with love at random times throughout the year!

Lilly has grown and changed SO MUCH in the past six months! I cannot believe she will be THREE this summer?! How is that even possible.

She is so much fun! Lilly is full ofΒ life, love, and laughter! And she is so incredibly smart. And sassy. We have our hands full for sure! She can count to 10 if you have her full attention, say 80% of the alphabet on her own, and still working on her colors. She LOVES to be outside and playing with friends. Anyone that will chase her and laugh with her is her new favorite person. I am thankfulΒ that I have the opportunity to stay home with her everyday. I could not imagine my life any other way during this season. She is such a blessing to me! And teaching me new things everyday. She feels every emotion there is and feels them strongly. Although it can be trying at times, I do love that about her! She is definitely one of my favorite people of all times!

Sometimes picture time calls for reinforcements! And we know who to ask. Lilly loves Coo-wee (Corey) so much!

And we couldn’t take pictures of sister without getting at least one of this handsome boy. He is sooooo in to clapping lately and it’s adorable!

Wester Photography 2016 Review

2016 was such an awesome year for my little business and full of so much growth!

It’s been fun and ENCOURAGING to go through all my photos from the year and to see how much I have grown.

It has been a year full of first birthdays, adoption celebrations, pregnancy announcements, senior portraits, family sessions, engagement announcements, maternity sessions, and and lots of practice on my kiddos.

Even after having my camera for a little over two years, I still feel like I learn something new every time I am out using it!

I am so thankful to all who let me capture their memories last year and trusted me with their special moments. I am really looking forward to what 2017 holds for Wester Photography and excited to start growing my business even more!

Hope you enjoy seeing the growth in my pictures from the past year! Minus a few sessions here and there that can’t be posted.

Liam Henry: 6 & 7 months.

Happy New Year!

One day I will be caught up on all the sleep I have missed out on since May… but for now, I will just keep on posting late πŸ˜‰

Liam’s sixth month FLEEEEEEEEEEW by! So quickly. The holidays didn’t help that either! So we will just stick with his picture updates for that month… He started setting up just in time for pictures in front of the tree too!

And now just a week plus a few days late on Liam’s 7 month update!

This handsome little boy is 16.2 lbs!

7 months:

  • Liam loves his mama!
  • LOVES to EAT! He nurses like a champ and looooovesssss solids! Whether it’s a pouch, fruit, mom’s eggs with feta, or Sister’s tortellinis… homeboy is eating it as fast as he can.
  • Almost crawling! Trying so hard. He can make it a few “arm strides” before dropping to his belly and army crawling. He’ll get there soon!
  • Loves to play with balls and sister! He thinks she is so funny and always wants to be with her
  • He is so smart too! He can wave hi/bye, clap, and “dance”

We have so much fun with this boy! I can barely remember what life was like without him.

My baby is no longer a baby anymore! He looks so big. But I am loving this next stage he is entering into. Where we can really start to see his personality start to form and come out. We are excited to see this little man grow!

I am hoping to get back into blogging! But with Liam not sleeping through the night anymore, I am back to being a zombie by nap time and going down to nap when both kids sleep. I think it might be time to start sleep training Liam. So I will keep y’all updated!

Thanks for stopping by,
Tiffany
