I can’t believe my baby’s almost 1! Let’s face it, being a working mom is exhausting. Building a business while caring for a newborn… even more exhausting! Every minute of the day seems crammed full of diapers, emails, and editing. For this reason, I have discovered a whole new level of multitasking.
I’ll be honest some days after David gets home from work I’m ready for a break. There are nights when Ethan still wakes up 2 plus times to feed, times when i’m really tired and dreading getting on my computer after a long day spent caring for a baby. Sometimes I think what I wouldn’t give for just one hour to myself, but honestly I knew what I was getting into when we decided to have a child and I would never trade my life with David & Ethan for anything else in the world. I’m enjoying and making the most of the time I have with them. Putting my phone and computer aside at times, I play, I give eye contact, I use silly voices, and participate in family fun. All of this results in much better relationships with the men in my life and that is what is most important to me.
So yes, my baby’s turning 1 in September… I really can’t believe it. I want to bottle him up at this moment right now and hold on so tightly and never let go. Well, we all know that’s impossible. The only thing I can do is do what I do best, take as many photographs of him as I can, print them and hang them up all around my house to enjoy all his little smiles and laughs and silly little faces every time I walk by them. That is exactly what I’ll do. I hope you enjoy watching Ethan grow because you know he will be the most photographed child you know! Here are a few of my favorites from his outdoor session David helped me with the other night.
