There are so many layers to be preserved — the connection between you and your baby as your nurse, the way it feels to hold them in your arms, the tenderness between your baby and husband, the big yawns, the tiny cries, first baths, dirty diapers, little sleeps, tiny fingers wrapping tightly around you, little rolls.
too soon, these days will be a faint memory —
These days are sacred — the emotions you are feeling are a mile long. You’re exhausted, amazed, overwhelmed, scared, anxious, grateful, in awe. You’re connecting in new ways as a family with your newest little one. I keep these sessions simplistic and natural, focusing on capturing the essence of your baby and the details that make them so special from their fuzzy shoulders to their tiny little toes. I know these days aren’t always easy but you will blink and find yourself a year down the road. Let’s take a minute, slow down and cherish these moments.
