Kai: a year with my little man

My monkey boy is 1 today.  How we got here so quickly I’ll never know, since it still feels like only yesterday that the doctor placed him in my arms and I knew that our family was complete.   We’ve coined him “the gentleman” because if you spend any amount of time with him you’ll soon see that he’s anything but!  Mischievous, but ever so disarming– what a dangerous combo 🙂

Happy Birthday my little man~ mommy loves you.

Sandy Awww, adorable! And it’s awesome you complied all those cute shots!! Happy birthday!

Sometimes all it takes to inspire a photo shoot is the right accessory.  In this case, me and my sis-in-law were shopping and came across these super cute headbands and just had to have them for our girls.  As of late, they’ve been dubbed “The 3 Amigas” and looking through these shots, I think they really embody their title 😉  These were taken in Jaiya & Lehla’s ultra girly bedroom.

Kai made his appearance too ~although he declined the headband and opted for this spiffy little hat instead 😉

Then at home, Aaliyah was still in a camera-happy kind of mood so I took full advantage (hey, these moods are pretty few and far between lately, can you blame me??)

Hope you’re all enjoying the start of the holiday season!  I’m officially “on holidays” and enjoying some much-needed family time for the rest of this month.  Check back soon as I’ll surely be posting more snippets from Christmas Time at the Gill Household!

Stay warm,

sharon Awww…Aaliyah is so beautiful, grown up and cute! Love all her solo ones at home! And Kai, my goodness has he grown?!? And the headbands? I totally agree with you, sometimes it’s the accessories that inspire the whole shoot. Love that pop of colors from the headbands. The three girls are sensational, they are really lucky to be all so close in age, and have each other as companions.
