July 10 on 10 >>> Knoxville Lifestyle Photographer

Yay! It's time for another 10 on 10! I missed last month so I included a few extra photos this month. Our summer has been busy like everyone's. Swimming and lots of play outside. We've taken a much needed break from homeschool for the past few weeks to recharge our batteries but we're ready to get back at it. Well I am anyway, haha! I hope you guys are having a great summer! Please continue on around the circle and visit my friend Kristi's post. Her use of color and thoughtful composition draw me in every time! Go see for yourself!

Ellie turns 5

Today our biggest girl turned 5. 4 to 5 is such a big change. I feel like at the start of this year, she was just beginning to leave toddlerhood behind and now she's a little girl. Oh my Ellie. She is so very full to the brim with life. She wakes up beaming and shines till bedtime. Her name means shining light and that is truly what she is.

She has always been the one that has challenged me most in parenting and although, I'll be totally honest, at times that has been really hard, the Lord has used her in my life so many times to show me His unending love and grace towards me. 

Last night when I tucked her into bed, I told her about how at that time 5 years ago, I was in labor with her and how relieved I was to finally hold her in my arms and how I cried when I met her because I loved her so very much. How she smiled all the time as a baby and would squeal with joy in her crib when she woke up from naps. She just lit up as I told that little love story to her. We are so very thankful for you Ellie. Our shining light. 

"You, Lord, are my lamp; the Lord turns my darkness into light. With your help I can advance against a troopwith my God I can scale a wall.  “As for God, his way is perfect:  The Lord’s word is flawless;  he shields all who take refuge in him." 2 Samuel 22:29-31

Our Gender Reveal!!!

So, I had sun drenched dreams for this gender reveal but alas, it’s gloomy and freezing out today so we opted for a little corner in our bedroom today after nap time to take our photos. And by the way, waking your 2 year old up early from her nap to tell her we are going to eat ice cream in Mommy’s room was LOTS of fun! This morning we got to see our 3rd sweet little baby for the very first time on ultrasound. The third time is no less exciting than the first. It is still amazing to see their sweet, tiny features. Still amazing to watch them moving around for the first time. Still amazing that God chose me to be bear and raise this little life. I cannot wait to hold this little one in my arms.

So, without further ado, here is our gender reveal….

IT’S A BOY!!! We are so excited. Beck was thrilled and Ellie just wanted to know where her little sister would be, haha!
