In December of 2016, I made secret plans with friends back home to surprise my sweet "sister" Erin for her baby shower. The trip was so secret and rushed that I even forgot to tell her husband, Mike, that I'd actually booked the flight!
Since the shower and the long-awaited arrival of baby Michael, my heart has been longing to return home to Indiana and meet their sweet boy in person. So, when time finally opened up again in September, I was on the first flight out of Dallas-Fort Worth and on my way back to the Midwest!
Naturally, I packed my camera with me, and we made some time for a quick family session on their farm in Colfax, Indiana.
I'm not sure if sweet Michael can fathom just how lucky he is quite yet, but I know he's got the most amazing set of parents and a whole magical childhood ahead of him that's sure to be filled with plenty of adventures. Baby Michael, you are so loved.
