Five Months of Sweet Baby Judson!

Our sweet baby Judson is 5 months old today and, I know I say this every month, but it really does just keep getting better and better!

I still can’t believe that the Lord has entrusted Wes and I to be his parents – and like I was telling a friend the other night at dinner, ever since my baby boy was born, I have truly never been the same. I didn’t know it was possible to love this deeply – but man, it is a love I cannot even begin to describe and one that has shown me the Father’s selfless love for His children in an entirely new way – and what a gift that is!

This has been such a sweet month with our baby boy – as he is loving to roll, babble constantly (it is the cutest thing – he loves talking to himself these days haha!!), giggle all the time (especially at Red, our dog – aka his baby bestie!!), touch his feet, loves to stand up on us (he has such strong little legs, y’all!), is a great little sleeper, and is almost sitting up by himself!

He loves a good morning chat on our daily walks and is still the cuddliest little baby bear in the whole wide world - and I am soaking in all the snuggles with him these days!!

“Let them be little, cause they’re only that way for a while. Give them hope, give them praise, give them love, every day… Oh, just let them be little.”

The lyrics in this precious song, Let Them Be Little, have been words that I have been leaning into these days as I am truly doing my very best to soak in every memory with our precious angel baby boy – because I don’t want to miss a single moment of experiencing the world through baby Judson’s bright blue eyes!

I know I say this a lot, but I don’t want to take a single day for granted – because I am well aware of what a beautiful gift motherhood is. And especially during these early years, it is such a unique opportunity to experience the beauty and joy of life all around us through Judson’s sweet little eyes and soul – and gosh, such a gift!

We have had such a fun month doing all the “fall” things and baby Judson has had an absolute ball – not to mention, he is the most easy and go-with-the-flow little guy, and we are so thankful for that!!

Judson had so much fun going to his first pumpkin patch at Strawberry Hill and was definitely the “cutest pumpkin in the patch!”

Our dear friend, Kristen Cochran, just started her own photography business and asked us to do a little “modeling” for her at the beginning of October – hence, the precious fall family photos in this blog post!

We are so thankful for her and excited to cheer her on in this new venture – and we will cherish these precious photos forever!

Baby Judson had his 4-month checkup earlier this month and was such a brave boy for his shots!

We are so thankful for a wonderful report and for this strong, happy, and healthy baby boy – thank you Jesus!

And after such a big morning, this little cuddle bug just wanted to snuggle mommy the rest of the afternoon – which I didn’t mind one bit!!

Soaking in all of these precious days and moments with you, sweet baby J! You are so very loved!

Baby Judson has been mommy’s little helper over here at EMC – helping me pack and ship so many happy art orders out to my sweet customers!!

I am so grateful for all of your love, support, and orders as we are heading into the holiday season and am so excited to get to create and share so much happy EMC art with you and your loved ones again this Christmas! If you are still wanting to place any Christmas orders, make sure to message me as soon as you can – before my holiday list fills up!!

I have already been absolutely blown away by the Christmas orders and custom commissions coming in this year and am so overwhelmed by your love and support! I LOVE what I get to do – and give all glory to God!

I still can’t believe He called me to start this small business “for such a time as this” – as a way to be able to take care of my sweet baby boy while also helping provide for my family!

Thank you thank you thank you – from the bottom of my heart – for your orders and referrals! EMC would not be what it is today without every single one of YOU!!

And speaking of small business love, a sweet fellow small business owner – Leigh Dunaway at Leigh Dunaway Designs – blessed us with the most thoughtful surprise package in the mail earlier this month with the cutest little fall monogrammed outfits for our sweet baby boy!

Truly, the cutest little pumpkin I ever did see!!

I love this cutie pie more than I ever knew was possible – and being a boy mama is the sweetest thing in the whole wide world!

Judson has been such a trooper and tagging along for all of Wes’ college ministry late nights (life of a pastor’s kid haha) and is truly the most happy and content little buddy - we truly cannot imagine our life without him now!

Thank you, Lord, for being the greatest gift giver and blessing us with our bright blue-eyed baby boy!!

The weekend before last, we took Judson up to the Tryon Equestrian Center (one of our very favorite places) for the first time and had a great afternoon watching the horses and enjoying the beautiful weather.

And the next day, we were randomly blessed (by a dear friend from camp) with free tickets to a Needtobreathe concert in Greenville – one of my all-time favorite bands!

Judson was living his absolute best life – chillin’ and sleeping on mama’s chest with his new noise-canceling headphones!

We are so thankful for our easygoing, tag-along little buddy – he is just like his daddy and loves to be out and about!!

We spent this past Friday out in nature at the Carl Sanburg Home (up in Flat Rock, NC) and petting goats – and Judson was such a happy little camper!

The way Judson lights up when he sees animals and loves being outside is one of my favorite things about him already!!

I pray I will always hold onto these precious moments and memories with my baby boy – being his mommy is my favorite thing in the world!!

My motto for motherhood is “let them be little,” because I truly believe in letting little ones be just that – little – because there is such innocence and beauty about little children that is so sweet to the Lord, and to us down here on earth, too!

I’m sure doing my best to soak in all of these moments through baby Judson’s eyes – and there truly is nothing quite like it!

Also, Wes built a bonfire for us in the backyard this past weekend and that was super sweet, too!

Our first family bonfire is in the books!

We are soaking in all the fall memories and snuggles with our little sweet pea these days!

This fall season, my heart is overflowing with thankfulness and gratitude for all that the Lord has blessed me with in my sweet boys!

These truly are the very best days – and I wouldn’t trade this simple and sweet life with these two for anything in the whole wide world!
