December 22, 2015 was the big day for the Morris/Dendy families (along with the extended crew!). This was the day that Anistyn became a big sister and their family grew by 10 tiny toes.
As proven with past deliveries, our family always takes over 3/4 of the L&D waiting room, unintentionally.
We try to be as quiet as possible, but when you have a new baby being born sometimes the excitement is just a little too much to hold in. We tossed back and forth between the waiting room and the hall to give the other poor families a break from ourselves lol.
After others in the family finished their visit, I finally had the chance to go in the back to see Kelsie. This delivery was completely different from her last. This time around Kelsie was in her bed with her make-up on, just cruising through her contractions.
I went in to see her around 10:45am. At 11:37am Easton made is grand entry into the world! Kelsie’s labor went insanely fast to say the least!
We got word that he was here, so Robin (Mammie) told Anistyn that her baby brother was here and she is a big sister now! Anistyn said “WAIT! My baby brother is here??”
She was even more excited when her daddy came walking through the doors (we were too!).
Big sister got to go in first to meet her new baby brother and she was so excited!
Then came time for the rest of the family to meet little Easton!
There wasn’t a better sight to see that day than this.
To say we were all in love was an understatement!

I finally got my hands on this sweet baby in the studio at 14 days old. He was so cuddly and his big sister did such a good job with him!
And little Ani was so dang cute, I had to get one of her by herself!
Now, Anistyn and Easton’s daddy likes Star Wars just a teeny-tiny bit, so Kelsie and I played around with that idea a little:
Then we finished up the session with a few of this sweet baby by himself
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb” Psalm 139:13
“For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him.” 1 Samuel 1:27
My baby boy, Colt, turned a year old on December 4! (I know this post is a little late, but with all of the chaos from the holidays I’ve just now had a chance to post) His first year flew by, as they always do. I read a quote a friend posted on Facebook that said ‘The days are long but the years are short’. I thought, gosh, that is so true! In the moments of waking up every 2-3 hours to feed/change him in those first 3-4 months I thought that phase would never end, yet, here we are.
Colt is my independent child; he has always slept in his baby bed and isn’t one to really want to be rocked to sleep (although occasionally he does and I soak those moments up since they’re rare). He is a mama’s boy through and through. He began walking at 11 months old and loves to do try to do anything his big brother does. That involves taking away any toy Cash is playing with when he wants to lol. Colt is a ham and loves to show out and make people laugh. He loves to see himself on my video camera and says ‘hayyyyy’ when I have someone on speaker phone. He loves his bath and he loves to splash all of his water out.
Since Colt’s birthday is the beginning of December, his theme was ‘Colt’s Winter Onederland’.
We had a hot chocolate bar
Colt had a huge cupcake to dig in, and everyone else had blue velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing (I like to bake!)
Mr. Busy Body loved running around and visiting everyone!
Colt loved his rocking horse his grandma got him
Colt wasn’t really into tearing his presents open so I had to help out. Here is a calm moment between us as he gazed at his new toy…
And just like that, he was tired of sitting in my lap and looking at gifts, so he decided to buck out of my lap!
Mama wouldn’t let him get down….
Finally he got down and his big brother made it all better.
Everyone began singing Happy Birthday
This is Colt’s ‘this is awkward’ face
Colt didn’t quite know how to blow out his candles so Cash came to the rescue and helped. I believe this is my favorite picture from his party!
He had a wonderful party and we are so thankful for the friends and family who came to help us celebrate!
Here are a few shots from his first birthday cake smash session at the studio:
