A Daisy in the sunflower field.

Recovering from childbirth has been a longer road than I thought. I’ve actually only left the house five times since Daisy was born (and two of those times has been for her doctors appointments!) But last weekend, I asked my husband to take us to the sunflower field. Sunflowers are my favorite flowers (although, they may now be taking a backseat to daisy’s) and we have a few amazing sunflower fields in the Western New York area. This year we may have visited a tad too late in the season, but we all still had a good time! Even with sad looking sunflowers, we still had a lot of fun taking Daisy on her first adventure.

Ever since we had a baby, I am constantly thinking of things that I’d like to do as a family and traditions we can make together. I want to be able to share as many memories as I can with my daughter. Hopefully next year we’ll be able to visit the field a little sooner with some happier looking sunflowers. But let’s be honest, life gets busy so I’m just praying that we can get there at all!

Side note, my backpack is actually a diaper bag. I got it from Freshly Picked, and even though it is a tad expensive, I’m not a fan of traditional looking diaper bags. This one is amazing because it’s my favorite color (black) and it allows me to carry everything we need and have both my hands free. And also, that last photo of Daisy with the sunflowers! Be still my heart! Being a mother to a little girl is the best blessing I’ve ever received. Thank you Jesus.

Welcoming our little flower, Daisy Alice.

My husband and I decided to keep something very personal offline.

But now that she’s here, I want to share her with all of you.

On August 24, 2018 Josiah and I welcomed our daughter Daisy Alice into the world. We wanted to keep our pregnancy journey more intimate which is why we decided to not make any announcements until she arrived. Josiah and I also decided not to find out the gender of our baby so this little lady was a complete surprise for us. I’m going to share some photos from our pregnancy photo shoot and I also want to write her birth story, but for the time being, I just want to remember my little flower as she is in these photos. One day old, and perfect at just over 6 lbs.
