Today is our Birth Day. Technically it is the day that Grayson was born. 2 years ago, at 3:24AM our beautiful, kind, curious, magic little boy was born into my arms, in our home, and I became a mother(and Doug a father).
But in my mind, when reflecting on that day we all were born and were changed forever. We became something we weren't before. A human, a Mother and a Father. In our tiny little bathroom in the middle of the night we all had our jobs:
Mine to listen to my body, and my little baby and work together to bring him into the world, and Doug's to keep the rest of the world at bay so we could transform. We all had our parts to play and in our own way were changed. So, on this
day, for the rest of my days, I will always consider this day our Birth-day and lovingly so.
To my littlest boy: you are everything that is good in this world. You have shown me so many wondrous things, about myself, your Dad, the world and life. I will never stop being in awe and in love with you.
These quite literally took us all day to finish. We started right after breakfast and worked straight through until 1AM last night. We took breaks for naps and to eat. Thanks to Doug for taming the chaos and understanding just how important it is to me to do these photos from time to time. My cell phone acts as day to day documentation of our lives but you just cannot replace having formal pics. At least I cannot. I love how her attitude is beginning to show. She has been such a go getter from the beginning and I cannot believe she is almost 5 months old!
She is our loud little one. She made more noise in her first week than
Grayson did in his first month! She never really had a newborn cry and
as Doug always says: "she has a set of pipes!". She loves to have talks
and if I don't talk to her at least for a few minutes every day(one on
one. eye contact conversation) she gets really upset. I always just
sigh and hope that it always remains this way even though I know it will
not. We are just peeking our heads out of the newborn phase and
getting back to somewhat normal life and trying our best to get some
semblance of a routine in place although with a 2 year old that is
proving difficult. They are both such happy and curious children and I
just cannot wait to see what they do next every day!
