5 things to buy/try/do with Grace of Camp Patton

As if photos of my newborn son weren’t precious enough, Jordan shot a little video capturing a few moments from our newborn session this week.

And I cried when I watched it. And then I watched it 45 more times.Β 

Luke and David have been such immense blessings to me and Justin, it’s impossibleΒ to even put it into words.

Kate,
Congrats, and yes, this is touching and beautiful! Some of these photographers are certainly so talented, and Jordon is no exception; I think capturing the beauty of a newborn is one of the most challenging for amateurs. That moment when you’re gently touching your newborn’s head: perfect.

Reply

What a sweet sweet baby. Love this video!

I wanted to mention to you that I watch my nearly 16 month old grandson a few days a week and he isn’t very verbal. I think he’s just going through a phase, but I’ve been saying to him (to encourage babbling), “ducka ducka ducka.” He grins at me and giggles always. Maybe soon he’ll start saying it! I think you’re on to something!

Oh. My. Gosh. This brought tears to my eyes and a big ole’ smile on my face. I think he looks like David, too, except at one point in the video where I think he looks just like Justin.

And I LOVE.. LOVE.. LOVE the names you gave them both. Names they can grow up and be proud of. I have to be honest I am not a big fan of some of the crazy names and spellings that people give their children these days. The daughter of my best friend named her little girl Hazel and I love it!

Goodness Kate! Make me cry too why dontcha?!
I shed tears of joy for you and your family. I know there are people who have recently started following your blog and rejoice as well in the new life, but I have been following “The Small Things Blog” since [almost] the beginning just by stumbling upon your video on YouTube.
(I was in serious need of someone to teach me hairstyles! Thank God for Kate Bryan!)
Anyways, you and your family mean a lot to me even though I have never met you guys and being. Just reading your blog posts and watching God work in your lives is just awesome to me. That is why I shed those tiny tears.
Because I have seen the struggle [via blog posts] about how you and your husband were having a hard time conceiving.
I remember my prayers for you guys and celebrating with yall as you announced your first pregnancy!
And now to see this PRECIOUS video of your newest miracle just brought tears to my eyes. God is so good Kate!
Also I love that you picked the name Luke. The Biblical meaning of Luke is Hebrew for the bringer of light. And David of course: meaning is beloved.
You could not have said it better, you are immensely blessed! <3

I have to say that I use to “pop” in and look at your hair tutorials- ok stalk them. Lol- not in a crazy weird way but an “i admire you way” so I could try to teach myself way?make sense? I hope so.

But now that your a mommy (im a mommy) I really enjoy seeing David & now your new baby Luke. oh my goodness. They are just adorable & precious! Maybe that is what you should have named them? Lol

There is nothing like the love we have for our children. Its something that is beyond words hard to describe-until you have them yourself.
Its the best gift & blessing we could ever be given. We have 2 girls and they are close in age- & they are fun to dress up(ok- we have a 9yr old that refuses to dress in anything other than jeans & tshirts) please help me- thank goodness our little is a girly girl! Lol- But I love that our girls can play together and get along (as good as siblings do) You will love it! They will have more things in common. Enjoy every moment just cuddling them bc they grow up so fast!

The video was beautiful. Enjoy every single second with your two baby boys. My baby boys are now grown and my oldest is married and poised to start his family. It happened so fast and I miss those little dudes! As crazy busy, tired, and stressed as you are now, try to stay in the moment and enjoy even the not-so-great stages, because they are over in an instant.

I stumbled across your website a few years ago and your tutorials have been such a saving grace for me. You have shown me and I am sure many other women that it is possible to create what I thought was impossible and for that I thank you.
