Emmet Lee

“He will tend his flock like a shepherd; he will gather the lambs in his arms; he will carry them in his bosom, and gently lead those that are with young.”
Isaiah 40:11

This verse held me together during labor. I knew God would be gentle to me.
I also reminded him that I was formed of dust.

“As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him; for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.”
Psalm 103:13&14

The photos below are placed in the order of them happening.

 Transition. Feeling like labor would never come to an end, as if it would never crescendo, as if the urge to push would never be felt.

Squating/ leaning against the birthing tub.  With this end of labor I felt a lot of pressure on my tailbone. There is no way I could've sat and placed any pressure on that area. 

With my last birth my eyes must have been clenched shut because I do not remember him being placed on my chest. It really is a bummer because he was born encaul. 
This birth however after his head emerged I watched the rest of his body being birthed. 
Seeing him be born was amazing.

So Much Cleavage. Pregnancy boobs, am i right? Haha

God kept me present and grounded through my slow then fast labor. 
My husband kept me sane. He was so selfless in his care for me. He ran off absolutely no sleep for two days.

I was able to cut this babies cord myself. A first!

My Hummingbird Dress

So I finally jumped on the Hummingbird bandwagon. She was having a 50% off
sale so I basically was forced to. Right? Thats how 50% off sales go?
Even though my daughter lately has not been digging what I make her I thought I 
would just go for it. She always likes dresses. Well mostly always.
My only complaint is the bodice is a little revealing, I think shortening the straps a 
hair will remedy that though.
Photos did not turn out the most crisp this day but no body is perfect I guess and the sun sometimes hides.
*note; I lengthened the dress since it is winter. When the weather 
warms up ill raise it.
Cannot wait to make a new one and tweak it by widening the straps and adding flutter sleeves.
Fabric line from a V. & CO. Moda line.
Labels are my design from

Modest Swimsuit List for 2015

Every year its the same story. I search for hours for a new one piece. Well almost every year.
Last year I bought a Rey Swimwear one I had been wanting for like two years, only to be able to wear it twice. Why only twice? It was stolen. :'( I'm so over it though, can't you tell?
I know I'm not the only one who has trouble finding a swimsuit let alone one they feel covered and comfortable in so I'm sharing my list of cuties I've come across.

You're Welcome ;)

Looking for a trendy a Peplum?

Want sleeves?
