Now that we have a one year old, I find myself dreaming of the newborn days (which makes my husband nervous). Instead of scaring him, I thought that instead, maybe I'd share with you photos of my memories from the first two weeks of my little one's live. Although in the moment, everything seemed hazy from the experience of giving birth and the sleep deprivation that followed, I tried my very hardest to soak in every minute of having a newborn. And you know what, I did. I embraced those moments together, cherished the time with just the two of us in the middle of the night, spent time just looking at him and not worrying about the house, garden or the menu for dinner. I played with toes, nuzzled his neck and snuggled him in tight. I chose each outfit carefully, fully appreciating each handmade sweater and hat. I kissed him, all over, and breathed that newborn sent in deeply. I took his picture just about every opportunity possible. I feel in love. Head over heels. And I'm so thankful for that special time we had, just getting to know each other.
