It’s ludicrous that I am already doing Brody’s 3 month portraits. With everything that is going on right now, life is crazy. This pandemic has a lot of people feeling stir crazy, but to me, my life wouldn’t be different anyway. I am the type of person who is always unwillingly go, go, go. We are always going somewhere, always doing something. I have been looking forward to having a baby so that I would have an excuse to be still and do nothing but stay at home. Pandemic or not, my life wouldn’t have been much different than it has been.
It’s just crazy how quickly these 3 months have passed even though we have been locked up in our house the whole time. Thank goodness for shutter release clickers, I was able to get some pictures I wanted as a family to document the first quarter of Brody’s first year of life. This always seems to be the most dramatic change in their appearance and I want to make sure I document it! Click here just to see how much he’s changed since his newborn portraits 3 months ago! I am also well on my way to training my husband to be a professional photographer. The only thing I need to teach him to work on his shutter finger and how to quickly click, click, click, so he doesn’t miss a good shot.
I honestly can’t even believe I am sharing these with the world. I LOOK like I’ve been locked up in my house for 3 months. My hair hasn’t been done in I don’t even know how long. I’ve had false lashes (which I LOVE, one of my best mom hacks) for the past year. They’ve all fallen out and I haven’t been able to get them done again. I’m wearing zero make up. BUT it’s so representative of where I’m at right now in motherhood, and honestly, I don’t mind looking this way for the time being. However, I do look forward to looking more like “me” once I can get my lashes back and my hair done.
This month Brody has started eating his hands, being more alert during the day, sleeping better through the night, and smiling intentionally. I’ve heard him giggle a couple times and can’t wait to hear that laugh more frequently. His hair is falling out in the back giving him a bald spot, and thinning in the front. His little red hairs are slowly going away which makes me sad. I think they’ll probably grow in blonde like his sister. His eyes are bluer than before and his skin has turned a translucent white like his daddy. Although we’ve been dealing with acid reflux and weight gain issues, he seems to be chunking up. He’s been more difficult to breastfeed than his sister, but is finally getting the hang of it better.
Brody, I know the next 3 months will fly by just as fast. I can’t wait to see what you look like then and how you’ll grow!

Don’t mind Hazel’s messy hair. I honestly love it!
