Stacie and I worked taught school together and were fast friends.

So today, when we got together for Bailey’s newborn session, it was like catching up from all that we didn’t get to talk about at her maternity session.

Stacie is a third grade teacher and Matthew, her husband, now works at her school, too! His family owned the infamous Little Pigs Barbecue in downtown Anderson and EVERYONE adores them. Their hospitality is what made their restaurant so famous. They never knew a stranger and welcomed everyone with open arms. Stacie’s classroom mirrors that exact atmosphere. Every student is welcomed with open arms.

And sweet, big brother, Grayson inherited those same qualities.

Already so protective of his little sister, he was quick to hold her and couldn’t stop touching her little fingers and just smiling down at her.

And little Miss Bailey was literally sound asleep through every bit. One time her sweet grandmother TRIED to wake her up so we could see her gorgeous and nope, she slept through that, too!

What a beautiful, SUNNY morning it was, Praise Jesus!
