Windmills, Windmills and more Windmills

Living in the Netherlands there is no shortage of windmills and in the year and a half we have lived her Brent and I have never been to see any.  So when my sister Missy came a couple of weeks ago to meet Elliot we decided to see some.  This was her second visit here so it was nice to do something different.  

 We went to the Kinderdijk area where there are 19 windmills all along the water
It ended up being pretty windy, shocker right? So Elliot quickly went from being in the stroller to in the moby wrap.

 We were so bad with pictures I think this is the only one of Missy and myself

So Dutch of us

 Elliot really enjoyed this outing :)

One of the windmills that people live in.  The blades came so close to the ground it was crazy!

We didn't end up staying very long since the weather wasn't the greatest but we can now say we've seen windmills!

Newborn Photos

When Elliot was 3 weeks old we had some newborn/family photos taken.  The photographer came to our house which was great!  Thankfully it was a nice day and we were able to do some outside after some in the house.
 Here are just a few of our favorites

Love this one!!

 Snuggled on his blanket from his great-grandma

Okay, I could post so many more but I will stop!  He has grown so much since these photos, I am so glad we had them done.  

Have a great week!

Grandma comes to town

A couple weeks ago my mom came to visit us but mostly to meet Elliot :) 
She got in on a Saturday morning and was here until the following Friday.  She of course came with lots of presents for the little man! We were amazed at how much she was able to get in her bag!  We spent a lot of time just hanging out at our place in the beginning of the week.  On Thursday we went into Amsterdam so my mom could see the city and order some tulips.  We had a great time having her here and loving our little guy.  Here are some pics from the week

 Elliot was already trying to impress Grandma(Oma is grandma in Dutch)

Meeting for the first time

1 Month

Elliot was 1 month on Friday and I can't believe how fast it went!

How is this the same little boy

1 day old

This moment feels like it happened just yesterday

This past month has been the most exhausting and the most amazing time in my life.  I know everyone says it but this little guy has brought so much joy and love into our lives already.  

A lot of the last month has been spent like this and we have loved every second of it

Elliot you are pretty awesome and we can't wait to see how you grow!!

Have a good week!
