Hey there! I'm so glad you're here! I'm Monica Brown, a wedding photographer from Indianapolis who loves to celebrate couples & photographers. I hope you enjoy browsing through recent work, advice for brides & photographers, and taking a peek into our personal life!
It’s SO HAPPY and so sad to be writing Nora’s sixth month blog post! Time seriously needs to slow down!! This has been a very very eventful month of life which is probably why it feels like it FLEW by.
-She starting to like a paci…sometimes.
-She still tries to suck on anything that comes close to her mouth and especially loves her right hand thumb.
-She’s a water bug! We weren’t surprised because she loves bath time so much but she REALLY loved the water! We decided to sign her up for swim lessons in April so I’m jazzed about that!
-She’s also a wiggle worm. This month she mastered rolling from her back to tummy so she’s rolling all the time now. When we put her down for the night she’s always on the opposite side of the crib come morning haha. She has slept on her side and tummy (looks like an inch worm) a few times now too so maybeee her massive bald spot will be on its way out soon here.
-She loves to babble and giggle. Lots and lots of smiles these days!!
-She’s started and seems to already be ending the “this isn’t mom” phase so on occasion cries when other people hold her and she looks up at them. Thankfully this is happening less & less toward the end of this month though!
-She LOVES cups! She’s always trying to steal ours and loves to have her own sippy cup now too.
-She’s unsure about foods and makes some hilarious faces when eating ha.
-She rolled from her back to tummy on 3/8/21 (stopped swaddling this day as well) so now she can roll both ways which is fun!
-Visiting Uncle Justin & Aunt Katie in Goshen, IN
-Nana & Aunt Addie babysitting while I have photoshoots (Sam + Caitie Engagement & Ethan + Brynn’s proposal)
-First girls weekend with ladies from our small group.
-First trip to Florida to visit my aunts + parents while they vacationed there.
-First time experiencing sand & the ocean! The water was pretty cold so she wasn’t sure about that but loved the sand.
-First boat ride. She mostly loved it, but the horn sound scared her/made her cry for a minute. She’s definitely still sensitive to loud noises!
-My cousin Rachel & her husband Kyle visiting and meeting her for the first time.
-We bought a house!! We saw it on 2/28, put in an offer that night, our offer was accepted the next morning 3/1, had inspection on 3/8 and we closed on 3/30. It was a whirlwind!! Nora was with us throughout the whole process which was fun! She’s even started to “help” as we fix it up (see below ha)
-Her first Easter with both of our families.
-Starting real food and water with her more consistently! She makes some really silly faves when trying things but is definitely curious about food/ loves grabbing the spoon to put food in her mouth.
Until next time friends!
