All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

Birthday Photos Are Here!


My friend, Denise, is awesome!  She’s my close friend who does all of Matthew’s photos (and you know I love photos) and she is VERY good to us!  I can’t say enough nice things about her and her girls who have become the most special of special friends to us.  Matthew and I went out for dinner with her and the girls last night and we all just had a ball.  The girls love Matthew, and he loves them like he loves no other kids in the world!   He knows that C and R are special  🙂

Denise photographed Matthew’s party for us – and she is a perfectionist who would not let me see the photos until they were done.  I get that.  I do  😉  But I have been dying with anticipation and the wait was worth it!  Denise went above and beyond and put Matthew’s birthday party photos into a slide show so that everyone could see them… and it’s precious!  She always picks the BEST music to go with the mood of the event!

Birthday Party!

To my surprise, she also made a slide show of Matthew’s first birthday photos.  YAY!

The Big 1!

So there you have it – birthday #1 is officially in the books as we now count down the months to birthday #2.  I already have the theme picked out  😉

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. Great pictures and what a great 1st b-day party- loved all the bright colors and decor!

  2. Wow wow wow!!! I love the party pics and all the details, but the first birthday photos in the studio are so great! You have such a gorgeous family! How in the world are you going to choose which photos to get printed and put up in your house??

  3. I was planning the girls’ first birthday party in the hospital. Really, in the hospital! I also already know the theme for their second birthday 😉

    Love the photos! Matthew is such a handsome little guy. I love how parents always seem to go with blue for the “cake to smash for photo ops” 😉 blue photographs well for that sort of thing, haha!

  4. Love all the pictures!! It looks like such a fun party, and I love that the theme was so unique! What are you thinking for #2??
