Loving every minute I get to spend with this girl. Making one on one time with her a priority isn't always easy, but it's always worth it. #millyraytoday #millyandmama

👋🏻 There are lots of new faces around here, so I figured I'd hop in on #fridayintroductions ! I'm Nancy Ray - wife to @willrray and mama to #millyraytoday and #babyrayinjuly - our baby due on the 29th! (And no we don't find out the gender of our babies... I cannot WAIT to see who this little one is!) & I can't forget #winstonthedane ! I'm a film photographer and the leader of the #nrpteam - 3 incredible film photographers who work from my little home #nrpstudio. I love running, reading, singing on the worship team at our church, family dates to @goodberrys, all things small business, and teaching other photographers and business owners. I'm delighted to be in your little insta-feed!⠀⠀

What I'm up to today: drinking a green smoothie, drafting blogposts, prepping to shoot my last wedding (tomorrow) before baby arrives (I'll be 37 weeks!), spending time with my sweet little spunky 2 year old at the pool, & shooting a rehearsal dinner this evening. It's gonna be a good, full weekend!

I snuck into her room at 3:08am, picked up her heavy-with-sleep warm body that was breathing so steadily, and laid her on my chest to snuggle. I whisper-sang "Happy birthday to you" as I rocked her, and then laid my hands on her and prayed for her. I gently laid her back into her crib, then snuck back into the bed with @willrray . Of all the birthday traditions we have, I think that will forever be my favorite.
A note to Milly on her 2nd birthday is on the blog (with a peek at a few maternity photos with @elizabethtate_ ). Link in profile 💕 #millyraytoday #millyandmama #justcallmelorelai

Bump update! I'm 28 weeks and officially in my 3rd trimester! I want all the spicy food, all the meat (crazy - I was a pescetarian with Mills!), all the goodberrys, and little one is moving around all the time. These movements feel so different than Milly! I tried dairy free and gluten free life for a bit to help my dry skin/eczema, which has been a challenge for this pregnant lady who wants all the things. I've felt bigger this time around, but I've also been way more laid back and have enjoyed every moment. I'm amazed at my body, and I can't believe this little one will be here before I know it. Milly ADORES babies, and while she doesn't totally understand what's going on, she loves to kiss my belly button and hug Mama's "baby belly." Pregnancy is a crazy thing, and while some days I feel massive 😂🙈, I am truly amazed at the changes my body is making to make a way for a new life to join us. And yes, we are keeping the gender a surprise! 🤗🎉 #babyrayinjuly #millyraytoday #millyandmama

It's #fridayintroductions! (How cute is this little watercolor of my and my sweet fam by @graysea_paperco?) I'm Nancy, wife to @willrray and mama to #millyraytoday and #babyrayinjuly. No, we still don't know the gender of our baby - it's sealed in an envelope in our kitchen cabinet and it's been there for 6 weeks. Time will tell if we'll ever open it, but as of now we've decided to not find out until baby is born! I'm a film photographer and the leader of the #nrpteam - 3 incredible film photographers who work from my little home #nrpstudio. I love running, reading, eating homemade granola every morning, singing on the worship team at our church, family dates to @goodberrys, all things small business, and teaching other photographers and business owners. I'm delighted to be in your little insta-feed!⠀

"You will never find time for anything. If you want time, you must make it." - Charles Buxton⠀

We took Milly to the zoo on Saturday, and we almost didn't make it. It took some sacrifice to get there, and I'll be honest: a little stress. But Will and I looked at each other at the end of this weekend and as we asked, "What brought you joy this week?" Both of our answers was, of course, "Watching Milly at the Zoo." It was exhausting and wonderful and the highlight of our week. Milly's first trip to the zoo in a nutshell: her mouth dropped wide open when she saw the giraffes for the first time, she roared like a lion over and over, she loved riding on daddy's shoulders and "washing his hair," she loved the human babies she saw just as much as any animal, she loved the monkeys and giraffes and lions the best, and I think I enjoyed it just as much (if not more) than she did! Will gave me a gift card 2 years ago when I was pregnant with Milly, and little did I know I'd be pregnant with baby #2 when we finally used it. It was my first real trip to the zoo since I was a kid, and it was SO fun! So thankful for a family day. Let MAKE time for what matters. ⠀

A little @jubalacoffee breakfast date and exploring the new Sprouts grocery store and a hot decaf latte on this chilly day and emails during naptime and cleaning out our kitchen drawers and figuring out our home decor strategy before baby Ray # 2. Friday's are for Milly and Mama! #millyandmama #millyraytoday

Wish us luck!!! Entering my mama rite of passage this weekend and potty training this girl. Super thankful for my sister super mom @hopefilledhome in these times when I feel like I have NO clue what I'm doing. I've read and prepared, I've cancelled all my plans, and there's no turning back now. Here's to sweatpants, t-shirts, lots of patience and no make up (for me), 20 pairs of new princess undies, stickers, cookies and a brand new potty (for Milly)! Here we go! #holdme #pottytraining #millyandmama #millyraytoday

There’s nothing as sweet as hearing that little heartbeat, looking across room to find my husband beaming at me, then watching Milly’s eyes get SO big as we explained that it was the baby in Mama’s belly. 💕 Motherhood is the greatest gift, full of miracles, I often wonder why I fought it for so so long. #millyraytoday #babyrayinjuly #millyandmama #17weeks #graceupongrace

Even though this sweet thing has 2 ear infections and is fighting off a 2 day fever that won't quit, today has been one of my very favorite #millyandmama days. Nothing was rushed, I held her hot little body as all she wanted was "mama snuggles," and we made it outside in the fresh air for a restful stroller ride (for her) / challenging 4 mile run (for me). I'd trade work any day for Milly snuggles, "gold-sif," Mary Poppins on YouTube and time on the greenway with my best buddy. This whole mama thing just gets sweeter with time. (Also, she's saying "I love you" instead of "I-lahv-oo" and I can't deal. It's the little things that make me 😭.) #millyraytoday

Being this girl's mama is more than a full time job, but it's absolutely the best, most meaningful work I'll ever do. These days she has me laughing a WHOLE lot. She's turning into my little buddy who I genuinely love to hang out with, which is just plain fun. 👯 Yesterday we both were swinging in the park, and she just kept smiling and pointing at me saying, "Mamaaa!" At lunch, we literally couldn't stop laughing together when she kept getting yogurt on her face. As I look to 2017, one big goal is to work smarter so I can spend less time in the studio and more time pushing her in a swing. THIS is the good stuff in life. #millyraytoday #millyandmama

The first of many weekends teaching my girl that life is more than screens, routine, comfort, make up, cleanliness, and perfection. I pray you will always value deep conversations around a campfire, hiking through fields and creeks, feeling grass and dirt in your feet, eating an extra s'more, snuggling in the middle of a field and exploring God's beautiful creation over any of that other stuff that becomes all too normal. #millyraytoday #millyandmama #firsttimecamping 📷: @willrray
