I want to be honest...I didn't love being pregnant.  I was sick and in a lot of pain for about eight months out of the nine.  What I did love were the little moments in between.  Like when I first felt the little fishy swimming around inside of me as I watched television.  Or when Baby Greene had the hiccups just as I was about to fall asleep.  One of my favorite moments didn't even involve me...Matt would rest his head on my belly and listen to the baby's heartbeat.  I was a bit jealous, but more in awe of what we were all experiencing at that very moment.  Being pregnant is amazing.  It's incredible how you get sick, how you expand and how you ride an emotional roller coaster.  It's amazing that you get a tiny human in the end to love, forever and ever.

Sophia and Chris are expecting a little baby girl in just a few weeks.  They are excited and nervous, but I think a little more on the excited side.  Chris asked me for my best advice for a parent-to-be, which I replied by saying that I don't like to give too much advice because it's just so different for everyone.  What I did tell them is to really soak in the time when your little baby curls up and sleeps three inches from your chin and six inches from your belly button.  That my friends, was a truly beautiful time.

Congratulations Sophia and Chris on the upcoming arrival of your little baby girl.  I can't wait to meet her!

PS: A vacuum really can be a life saver ;)  Or in new parent terms...a sleep saver ;)

Much Love,
Aubrey

I feel like I am finally settling down from the Christmas crazies.  And of course the whole house is sick :(  I have to say how amazing kids are when they are sick.  Yes, they can have miserable days, but for the most part they are so resilient and can suck it all up and still have a pretty good day.  In turn, that makes it so much easier for me to get up and get things done (except the laundry...been about two weeks since I've done that haha).  Max has an ear infection and bordering on pneumonia with this horrible cough, but you would never guess just looking at him.  Yesterday, he learned to spin!  Arms spread out wide and rotating around the dining room in pure joy.  I would NEVER spin in his condition!  It's pretty amazing ;) 

Amy & Emily | Lenox Hotel Wedding

In the spirit of pure joy, I have Amy and Emily's beautiful Boston wedding.  Now, I don't know if the storm of December 29th got a name, but it was pretty freaking terrible.  Luckily, I got to stay inside and avoid most of it while celebrating with a couple of my favorite people.  Amy and Emily got married at The Lenox Hotel in the absolutely stunning dome room.  I had heard about it and even seen pictures, but being in the middle of it is a different story.  They took advantage of every opportunity with lighting.  It was a beautiful blue during the ceremony and the whole room glowed amber and red during the reception.  Amy and Emily had their friend, Alisa, fly in from Hawaii to officiate the ceremony and she did a beautiful job capturing the hearts of Amy and Emily.  I also want to give a shout out to mother of the bride, Kathy, who was such a pleasure to work with and get to know.  From the blessing of the rings to the reception "hat dance", this whole event was filled with love, laughter and most importantly, fun.

Congratulations Amy & Emily!

Much Love,
Aubrey

This is a special sneak peek for you today!  Sophia and Chris are the winners from my annual donation to Company One in Boston.  I was super excited when Sophia called and asked if they could do a maternity session - seriously jumping for joy!  I love seeing couples right before they bring a little bundle of joy in to their lives.  They are nervous and yet so filled with wonder and excitement.  It's really amazing and truly an honor to be a part of it. 

Enjoy!
