Family {of FOUR} Photos

When Logan was two weeks old, we had the lovely Pippa from Borrowed Moment Photography to take some casual family photos in our home.

I love how the photos turned out.
 I think you'll agree that big sister M stole the show.

When we moved to London in 2014, M had just turned 2. Had we stayed in the states, I am sure that our two children would have been born much closer in age.

Being in a new country and so far from family, I knew that I wasn't in a place mentally to have another baby. We wanted to travel and experience being expats as fully as we could and for us that meant putting baby #2 on the back burner.
 I am so very glad we made that decision.

Our family is perfectly complete.

My Mom {Nana} spent about a month with us around L's birth. To say it was wonderful having her in London during this time is a HUGE understatement.

It meant the absolute WORLD to us.

As I look at these photos, I am already missing that little baby of so many weeks ago. L is now 15 weeks and changing so quickly. He doesn't have that delicious newborn smell anymore and he's beginning to show us more of who he will be.

L watches M with such wonder, following her with his eyes wherever she goes. I love watching him watch her.

And M has fully embraced being a big sister. I think it's her best role yet. Davis and I are so proud of how she's handled the huge change.

Hope you've enjoyed the photos! And hope I didn't share too many...😊

Adventures in Austria

Davis and M spent the weekend in Innsbruck, Austria. We couldn't get a Visa for L's passport this quickly and since he's only 7 weeks old, he and I stayed put in London.

They traveled with our Japanese friends who are moving to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia at the beginning of April. M and their son, Daiki are good friends from school and we sure are going to miss them living in London.

Since I never got around to sharing our travels to Innsbruck last year, I figured now was as good a time as ever.

Riding the cable car up the mountain to Nordkette to go skiing.

While there was no snow in the city of Innsbruck, as you traveled up the mountain...hello snow!

Being from Colorado, it was so wonderful to have my feet in the snow again. There is something about the sound of snow crunching under my feet that I just love.

It was M's first time skiing and she absolutely loved it.

The resort had a moving walkway that would take the beginners up a small hill with just enough of a slope to get moving. She could have gone up and down all day.

Davis got a few runs in while I stayed with M. I'm a skier too but really just enjoyed watching M ski and was in no rush to get on the slopes.

After the mountain closed, we did a little tobogganing.

We had one day of beautiful sunshine and explored the old city a bit more. And really with the sun shining, blue skies and the majestic mountains surrounding the city, Innsbruck is gorgeous.

Hoping to steal some of Davis' photos to post their trip this year so stay tuned!
