Motherhood and Our First 4th as a Family!

I know Erin and I have been MIA for about a month!! Well there is a very good reason, Jackson James Austin finally arrived on June 5th, at 1:06pm.  My little man arrived at an adorable 8lbs 1oz and 22inches long!  He is a big boy just like his daddy!  Motherhood is blissful, yet exhausting, but I couldn’t feel more blessed to be his mommy!  Today is my baby’s 1 month birthday… and I can’t believe it is going by so dang fast!  This last month has been a blur, just trying to learn how to be a mom, and focus on about 1/3 the sleep!  Between battling jaundice, and breast feeding… my days have been crazy!!  I am now getting back into the swing of things, so expect more fun and informative posts on Shutter Momma!

This weekend we were actually brave enough to celebrate our nations birth with a bbq with family and friends… and of course some pics of Senor Monkey Face.  It was 104 at our house, so while everyone else hung out in the pool, which I have about 2 more weeks before I can enjoy, Jackson and mommy spent some time having fun with pictures inside!  Daddy helped too!  Capturing a fun holiday moment doesn’t require funky backdrops or lighting.  For these images we put Jackson (and ourselves) in front of a big window in the living room, used our coffee table with a white shag rug over it, and a bib, white onesie, and a festive flag!!  Now I’ll have to think of an idea for labor day!

Here are some shots of my crazy, but wonderful, new family…
