New Stage of Life

My little man is almost 8 months old. I can’t believe how fast the time has gone by. Over the last 5 months plus of working, I have struggled with being away from Elijah like most mom’s do. I have gone back and forth with wanting to work and staying home. I my mind I … Continue reading New Stage of Life

A Weekend of Firsts

Last Thursday, Elijah and I took off on his first commercial plane ride with my good friend and her little lady. We headed to the East Coast to visit our friend and her family. We had a great time going into Washington, D.C. for two days and spending the rest of our time relaxing and … Continue reading A Weekend of Firsts

Seven Months

How time continues to fly. He has been trying out new foods, sitting up without much help, and rolling over.

Pittsburgh and the G7

I recently was “transferred” for my job. I am still based out of Bozeman, but am now part of the Information Systems team for the parent company, Woodard & Curran. As you might recall, I traveled to Portland, ME in the Fall of 2014, this was to visit the very same company. One of my … Continue reading Pittsburgh and the G7

Six Months

Okay, he turned six month a couple weeks ago, but I was reminded that I hadn’t posted pictures on the good ol’ blog. We had fun taking photos of our little guy. His stats as of his 6-month appoint were: 15 lbs 5 oz 24.75 inches

Five Months!

The little man has been on this earth for five whole months. He’s moving more and more and has taken to standing for minutes at a time (supported of course). He continues to show us more personality with each passing day. A full night’s rest still alludes our little progeny, but he’s getting close.

Great Grandma

Mr. Elijah Powell had the wonderful privilege of meeting Great Grandma over the weekend as well as several other family members. He has never meet almost all of Brent’s and my extended family. It is such a joy to show him off to everyone. Great grandma meeting was however my favorite. My almost 96 year … Continue reading Great Grandma


Searching for balance can be hard. Especially when you add in a baby. Brent and I have been searching for this balance of life, work, church and of course running. We spend our weeks trying to figure out how to balance everything. Then, I went and started to work more hours a couple nights a … Continue reading Balance

Only good for the Moon

Previously, you saw my first real attempt at lunar photography. It looked pretty good! It gave me confidence that the lens used would be so useful for so many photographic situations. Turns out this is not the case. Since I’m mounting it to a micro four thirds camera, the 500mm f8 lens turns into, effectively, 1000mm. … Continue reading Only good for the Moon

4 Months

Elijah is four months old today, so that naturally (at least for us) means that a new photo be taken and Elijah gets his four month checkup. He is now just an ounce shy of 13 pounds and a quarter inch shy of 24 inches. He had some shots, which he wasn’t a fan of (and … Continue reading 4 Months
