The Beginning: Month Two

March 18, 2015

What can you say about a baby’s second month?

TheBeginning(MonthTwo)

 

It was disorienting?

It was.

TheBeginning(MonthTwo)-2

 

She was little?

She was.

TheBeginning(MonthTwo)-3

 

Perfectly tiny.

Even when compared to the next smallest member of our family.

 

TheBeginning(MonthTwo)-5

 

She woke up?

TheBeginning(MonthTwo)-4

 

And captivated everyone?

It’s all true.

TheBeginning(MonthTwo)-6

She is adored.

Which is exactly how it should be.

TheBeginning(MonthTwo)-8

 

And if–somewhere in the small hours of most nights–

TheBeginning(MonthTwo)-7

 

I’m still really tired,

TheBeginning(MonthTwo)-9

 

I know I’ll catch up on my sleep soon.

TheBeginning(MonthTwo)-10

 

And these days–these wonderful, glorious, exhausting, surreal, overwhelming, and perfectly imperfect days–will be behind us.

TheBeginning(MonthTwo)-12

 

I wish these days would last forever.

TheBeginning(MonthTwo)-11

Natalie, I love this so much! You put into words what so many of us are thinking but aren't quite eloquent enough to convey so poetically. It's so hard to bring up these precious little people sometimes, but those early months go by so fast and you just don't know how or when it happened. We were talking last night about how our little guy will be 11 months on Sunday and the fact that it just can't be possible...not yet anyway. Your photos are amazing, and no matter how quickly the kids grow and change, you will always have such beautiful proof that really were once so small. :)
