It’s 100% my fault that it took me so long to get my hands on the beautiful photos that Dallas photographer Amy Columbus took of Kendall back in April, but alas, I have them, and I wanted to share a few with you all because it’s my blog and I can brag if I want to.
Bluebonnet season is a pretty big deal in TX. We don’t get multicolored foliage in the fall, our grass looks like shit most of the year and there’s not a cherry blossom with big enough balls to dare to bloom in this heat. What we do have, though, are our precious bluebonnets. They are with us for only a short time, but they are magnificent when they are out in full force. It’s not uncommon to see fields so thick with bluebonnets on the side of TX highways that they look like rippling seas. Although, I think it’s safe and sad to say that those fields are becoming fewer and more sparse.
While bluebonnets were at their peak last year, I was at my peak of pregnancy. I sat there in Virginia, all fat and swollen and pregnant, and looked at the amazing pictures people were taking of their babies in the fields of bluebonnets back home. It made me terribly, TERRIBLY homesick. I consoled myself by making a silent promise to have Kendall’s pictures taken in the bluebonnets this year.
Kendall is shy of 15 months old. He was 11 and a half months old when these were taken.
