Russell’s Last Week as an Only Child

Processed with VSCO with q8 preset

I hadn’t originally planned to write this post. I was going to take a short blogging hiatus because life is absolutely crazy right now, but as I sat in the waiting room at my OBGYN’s office earlier this week, I found myself becoming overwhelmed with emotions (Thank you, pregnancy hormones). I was filled with love for my son and decided that I’d write a blog post about Russell’s last week as an only child.

Over two years ago, I gave birth to my little Corde Russell and since then my heart has been completely wrapped around him. My mom once told me that when you have a child, It’s like having your heart walking around outside of your body- that statement could not be more true. I love being a mother. Being a stay-at-home mom has been an incredible blessing in my life and has allowed me to have an especially strong relationship with my child.

Knowing that our life is about to change immensely, I made it a priority this week to spend a lot of quality time with Russell, making memories, having a lot of fun and spoiling him to bits.

All of these photos were taken with my iPhone.

We did all sorts of activities this week. Russell and I spent most mornings eating pastries and chilling at coffee shops, roaming around the streets, and visiting department stores and the mall. We hung out at various parks around town and enjoyed the beautiful weather that Logan has had to offer us. We visited Corde at work and even went the zoo. I wish I would have captured a few more photos of out adventures.


A sign of too much fun:
