Nothing sweeter in the universe than the breath of a darling little babe.
Wrote this a couple nights ago but forgot to schedule it. Still getting used to it.
It’s almost seven thirty so I’ll be off to put the baby to bed soon. I have to laugh at myself for a minute though because I came in here about twenty minutes ago to write a blog post. And I have several drafts already of what I want to say. And some are in my head but a few are actually saved as drafts. Which I really love by the way. Anyway, I’m exhausted. It’s been a long day. Already. My sister is still not well, my son is still teething and boisterous and curious. I’ve had a few flare-ups, in a much shorter time period than usual and I went for a one hour hike today, pushing HRG in the stroller the whole way! So, I think it’s okay for me to say I’m exhausted, right? It’s not an exaggeration.
I’m really hoping his second year molars finish coming in soon. Whoa! How did you mamas get through this? Goodness. So far, it’s his indefatigable openness, loving spirit and super munchable cheeks that are keeping me in the game! Ha!
Can I be super cheeky and mention that seeing your comments really makes me smile? And it inspires new posts. Honest. It is sooooooo good to read your thoughts and it makes this feel a lot more worthwhile as well as more link an interaction. Which I love. Your support is incredibly appreciated.
If you’re visiting the blog and not saying anything, PLEASE DO! I’d love to hear from you. And to visit your little corner of the internet as well!
While we were down in Southern California over the holidays, I was thrilled to visit past wedding clients and photograph their kids again. I love these four little people. They amaze me every time I see them with how much they’ve grown! I love that they’re so supportive of each other and yet they’re all SO different. It’s fabulous.
First up, we have the youngest- Isaac. Cameron and I were convinced for years that Isaac was going to be a farmer. He was always so comfortable on his own in a corner of the garden. Now we’re thinking he’s more likely to be a surfer!! LOL. He’s such a sweet child, and his face is so beautific it’s hard to believe that any mischief lies behind it. Don’t let it fool you though! He certainly holds his own!
Next up, we have Ms. Sofia- poised, confident, curious and friendly. She told me once that she wanted to be a plumber and it made complete sense. She’s always seemed to love learning how things work. Isn’t she gorgeous?
The two oldest are very close in age, physical ability and some aspects of their temperament. And yet, on the surface, they couldn’t seem more different. Especially now that they’re just on the cusp of entering their teenage years! Their parents are really excited about that. LOL!!
Here’s Joseph, he’s a barrel of laughs, thoughtful and responsible. He’s wanted to be a firefighter since the first time I met him and I have a feeling he’s going to make it happen.
And last, but definitely not least, here’s Audrey. She told me on this visit that she wants to be a doctor and is already thinking about attending camps geared towards kids with those aspirations. I love that. She’s determined and purposeful and caring… all qualities suited for a healer!
Getting to know families and watching their kids grow is one of the best parts of my job. Hands down. It is seriously awesome watching these little beings grow and learn and become more and more of the adult they will eventually be. What a thrill and honour it is to cross paths with them and document a little piece of their life story!!
**p.s. The Playdate sessions are not limited to babies and toddlers. Any children and parents can participate. They’d also be great for mama&me sessions! Or daddy&me!**
