A Little Easter Lady

Wednesday, April 12, 2017

I love having a little girl for several reasons, but being able to make her my little dress up dolly is definitely up there ;)
Before we knew Oaklyn's gender, I was convinced she was a girl. 
By the time we actually found out she was a girl, I had no clue what to think since I had just assumed she was a boy!
We listened to "All American Girl" by Carrie Underwood on the way to dinner that night and I thought my heart might burst.
Suddenly, I knew I was meant to be this little girly's mama and the thought of pretty holiday dresses, all the bows, and sparkly shoes had me beyond excited!
I've always loved everything about holidays but one thing I realllyy love is an excuse to dress Oaklyn up and take some fun photos ;)
We got together with some friends last week and had a picnic lunch in a local orchard and snapped some photos of our little Easter kiddos.
It was so dreamy being in the tunnel of trees that are so close to blossoming for spring.
Oaklyn and I were sitting alone one moment and she looked up at me and said, "I yov mama."
Those are the moments in motherhood that make all the hard ones beyond worth it!
I love remembering all these little moments and capturing them through photos so I never forget. 
This year we are going to be telling Oaklyn all about our Savior and the great sacrifice he made for all of us, but even more importantly, that He Lives! 
She may still be a little young to understand, but we'll be doing a little craft each year to show her :)
I'll be sharing that one with you guys soon!
For now, enjoy these pictures of my sweet little Easter Lady :)

All my love,
Aleigh Joy
