Welcome to Court's new weblog and photo journal! For the amount of growth and change that Court realized in his first year of life, it seems like the second year is going by even more quickly, and we are already more than half-way through it. Now that he's talking and on the move, our days are filled with lots of fun and new discoveries. We hope to use this weblog to share a photo or two, every few days, to document his daily doings and milestones.We welcome you to check back regularly for photos and updates on our life with Court!
A proper photo session was the perfect way to kick off the second half of Court's second year, and the perfect subject for our first post here. On June 16, we joined professional photographer Erica Mulford at Fred Fletcher Park, a beautifully landscaped park in downtown Raleigh on the grounds of the former Methodist Home for Children. We discovered the park upon moving to Raleigh last year and we now attend its regular summer Sunday evening concert series, where Court loves to dance to the music and chase after other kids and puppies (or "Ruff," as he calls them). The photo session took place in the late afternoon, when the natural light offered an amazing format for some remarkable photos. Here are some of our favorites from the day!
