Capturing Childhood One Moment at a Time {March Moments}

March truly felt like a whirlwind! It arrived - and left - in the blink of an eye. It was a busy month for my family, but I pulled out my camera every day. Capturing each special moment was one of my goals this year!


Over the course of the month, my beloved Nikon D90 began to show its age. I started noticing little glitches here and there, and the usual sharpness of my photos just wasn't there anymore. I knew it was time to replace it, but I decided to keep using it while I do my research and narrow down my choices for a new camera. It's a big (and expensive) decision, and I want to make the right one!

Despite the glitches, it got the job done. I managed to capture some really sweet moments with Dylan, Lexie, Lily and Liam!

The first day of March felt more like a lamb than a lion.

Our sweet baby bunnies grew so quickly! They literally quadrupled in size within a few short weeks. The one on the right is the baby I kept, and the one next to it is Lily's.

We had an indoor ice cream picnic. (My kids are just a bit obsessed with Arctic Zero!)

We finally celebrated Lexie's 10th Birthday by having a small party with our family and a small party with friends!

We spent the month hand raising bunnies to get them ready for their new homes! They were all so sweet!

It snowed! And Liam still hated it with all of his might.

We celebrated St. Patrick's Day!

Liam discovered the fun of Hide and Go Seek. He's quite good!

We thoroughly enjoyed the rare lazy mornings.

We went to Dylan's 6th Grade Open House. It's hard to believe that this is his last year in elementary school! When I think about it, I seriously start tearing up.

The babies continued to grow and the time to say goodbye was quickly approaching.

Lexie's 4th Grade Open House, which was the following day, was a bit more exciting. In case you missed it, Lexie fell at the end of her Open House and broke her wrist REALLY bad. She spent 12 hours in two different hospitals and it they ended up putting her under to set her wrist. She was incredibly calm and mature. She's definitely the toughest person I know!

The time arrived to start giving our baby bunnies to their new homes. We were all so sad!

We spent much of the month outdoors. Keeping up with this little whirlwind is a struggle!

We started to focus on the two baby bunnies who were staying behind to live with us. They were both introduced to bathtime. My bunny loved it!

And just like that, the month came to a rapid end! It was busy, it was fast, it was stressful at times, but it was certainly memorable. (I have no doubt Lexie will EVER forget her 4th grade open house!) But most of all, it was full of moments that make childhood so special!

  4. I am so glad that I've blogged for as long as I have because I have so many photos of Connor growing up and while it seems like I just had him, it was almost 4.5 years ago. I will forever cherish the photos I have of him as a baby.
