Month-By-Month: One

February 16, 2016

On January 16th, just after midnight, we welcomed our son into the world. He is a calm, and relaxed little man. From the beginning he has been alert, and even gave us some smiles as early as 2 weeks. Of course it could have been gas, but gas-induced smiles count too! His sister has been adjusting as you might expect any first child to react. There have been moment of joy, jealousy, happiness, frustration, confusion and love. I am optimistic by this time next year, they will be good little buddies, wreaking havoc for me as I attempt to keep the ship afloat. 

When M was born, I was still working my full-time job, and I had every intention of documenting her each week with a formal session. Real life happened and I fell short after only 8 weeks. Despite not accomplishing the weekly photo, I managed to snag a monthly photo of her as she graduated into toddlerhood. Now that I am fully freelance, I have the flexibility to set my own schedule, and I have committed to documenting these two kiddos every week for the next year. 

Here is CJ's first month with big sister M along to help. I am so grateful for my husband and our little family. Through the happy times and challenging ones, I am reminded of life's blessings.
