The name Audra means “noble strength” which is the same meaning of Reagan Brielle. I thought that having my girls’ names mean the same meaning- strength- was a beautiful thing. I want to raise strong girls…where they find their strength in Christ. We used the name Jamison because my grandpa and Jay’s grandpa’s name is James (it’s also the middle name of our brothers) so it seemed fitting :) We love you little one!
It’s November, so it’s technically still fall right? I’ve had these photos saved but never hit publish with this post! Definitely wanted to post these before I start posting Christmasy photos :) We took these in the early Fall, when we went to the apple orchard and pumpkin patch. We picked sooo many apples and pumpkins, we couldn’t bring them all home- ha ha. The kids are all at such a fun age, and it is so much fun taking them to do things like this!
….until next year ;)
The newest member of our family, Audra Jamison, was born November 16th. 8lbs 9oz . Ever since I have had a blog- each baby we’ve brought home has had their own little post on here….so Audra is no exception :) Audra’s birth was the easiest and quickest of the four and I’m so thankful for that! The nurses and my doctor were wonderful, and everything seemed more peaceful than my previous labors.
So far, Audra has been pretty laid back (she is a newborn who sleeps all of the time of course!) and she has been given lots of love. All three of the kids are constantly checking on her to make sure she is doing ok. If one sibling is not next to her, another one will be within five minutes….I’m not exaggerating :) Beau is always giving her kisses, Leland helps with diapers, and Reagan always want to give her the “pinky” (binky) ha!
I’m going to post a few newborn photos that I took of her and the meaning of her name soon. We love you so much already miss Audra!
Sometimes I feel like time is passing so fast, and I can’t catch up! Do you feel this way too? Can’t believe we took these pictures a month ago…can’t believe it’s already October (today Leland turned 7!) Time just needs to slooooow down. Except for this last month of pregnancy, this last month can totally speed up- ha ha! But otherwise, time just needs to not go so fast. I guess that’s why I love photography so much and carry my camera every where I go. To save, document, to save up the memories because they truly do go too quickly. I’m thankful for the memories to capture, whether it be for others or for our own family. These are from last month at a sunflower field about an hour from our house…
A couple weekends ago we celebrated Reagan’s third birthday with some family. She loved having a little party and loved her cake and everything! Most of the decorations I already had except for the flowers, banner, and pink burlap. I made the cupcake stand using spray paint, candle holders and plates from the dollar store and this tutorial. So easy! She had such a great time and I still can’t believe she’s already three!
