Summer Family Photos: Cash Is One

 Summer Family Photos: Cash is One



Hey loves, I hope you are having a lovely weekend so far. We have been relaxing and soaking up this great chilly Fall weather! I wanted to finally share these summer family photos my sister Kesley Steindler Photography snapped of us to capture Cash right after he had turned one.  If we could take family photos every few months I totally would because its so worth it when these little babies grow like weeds! They change so much month to month and to be able to remember these moments and milestones in photos means so much to us as a family.  I hope you enjoy and be sure to check out my sisters work if you're local in the Orange County area and looking for someone to snap some photos of you and your fam!

Life Lately Via My Camera Roll:

Life Lately Via My Camera Roll:

Life this past month or two has been so much fun. We have are definetly going out of summer with a bang! Fall weather has not offically began yet so we are still hitting the beach hard.  We have had birthdays, weddings and some date nights and boys/girls night outs that have been quite fun the past couple of months.   Since im no longer doing monthly updates on Cash (don't worry ill do them every few months still), just to fill you in on this little dude lately: hes been walking since 13.5 months about a month ago, he says "mama, dada, keys, Cash, cheese, this, that, hot, wawa (water), hieee (hi), huu see (horsie), bubbles, ball, nana, he tries to say doggie but hes not quite there yet it sounds more like dada, he sings "ee na, ee na" for "clean up clean up".. the song, current word today he was trying to say was "eyes", and im sure there are a couple others im forgetting or we still have not deciphered what they are yet lol.  For the words above he can say them really well and most people know what hes trying to tell them. Its so sweet because he says hi to everyone and it is literally the cutest voice you have ever heard (@tessaarmstrong8, video posted on instagram of him saying hi).    He points to everything still, he is sleeping 12 hours at night still 7pm to 7am, takes 2 naps that are each 1.5-2 hours long and is quite possible transitioning to just 1 nap soon, he loves to water the grass at our new home, his new favorite thing is drawing on everything (i.e. the walls, the floor, every piece of paper and toy he can find and even little kids at the park haha) ..don't worry he doesnt realize i close off the colored pencil so nothing really comes out.  Today he thought he was coloring with my chapstick. He cracks us up every single day.  He has learned where his eyes, nose, head, mouth, peepee, boobies, and belly button are.
