Emelia Quin // My Newborn and a Quick Update

The last several months have brought several changes for us, including a baby, a move, new job and new church.  We are delighted in all of these changes, but as seasons like this one tend to do, tasks like blogging fall far down the things-to-do list (as if I was great at keeping up with it in the first place).  But now that our new home is mostly put into order, kids are napping, and free time is making a slow comeback, I'm happy to sit down for a bit and share a quick update.  

Emelia

In March, after a very quick yet very painful birth, Emelia Quin made her entrance into our lives. These pictures were taken a few days after she was born but she is now a very squishy five month old.  She receives approximately 1000 kisses a day and smiles after each one, and I'm trying to soak in her baby-ness as much as possible.  Eisley and Easton are both smitten as well, just as she seems to be with them.  Her sweet and gentle spirit are already so apparent, and we are so in love with this little one.

In other news..

In July, 2006, Brandon and I moved to Dallas not knowing we would call it home for eight years. All three of our babies were born there and countless friends-like-family made.  And yet, not long after Emelia was born, we began packing up the house we've lived in for the past five years and to the delight of our parents, siblings and extended family, recently moved back to Houston. Brandon is now the teaching pastor at Sojourn Heights, a church that has welcomed us back to the city so abundantly well and in our short time here has already become like family.  If you're in the area, please stop by and be welcomed in the same way.

Lastly, I will now be offering photo sessions in the Houston and surrounding areas as well as seasonal sessions in Dallas.  Please see the Upcoming Mini-Sessions page for details or contact me for future Dallas dates.
