Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed. ~ Walt Whitman
If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need. ~ Cicero
Six weeks new … sleeping like a princess on a pile of heirloom baby afghans and quilts … and she doesn’t seem to mind the little pea! She’s waiting to wear her silver crown when she awakes.
Two little blessings sent from above … twice the smiles, twice the LOVE!
Can you tell this family loves all things STL Blues and Disney?
Big sister and brother meet their newborn sister and are all smiles and cuddles!
These two are going to be both entertainers and protectors of her.
They loved on her and counted all her toes and fingers too!
“Pregnancy is getting company inside one’s skin …” and for these parents, it’s times TWO!
Two great joys are coming soon, and their grand family adventure is about to begin!
I’m so excited, happy and thankful for these sweet parents and so grateful that they included me in documenting their expectant-parent journey!
I can’t wait to hear about their Double Delivery!
“Giving birth and being born brings us into the essence of creation, where the human spirit is courageous and bold and the body, a miracle of wisdom.”
“You are pregnant and you are powerful. You are bold and you are beautiful. Go forward in your boldness, in your beauty and in your contentedness. Trust your body to birth and know that the collective power of women worldwide will be with you.”
“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new…and so in you the child, your mother lives on, and through your family continues to live… so at this time look after yourself and your family as you would your mother for through you all she will truly never die.”
“To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and distressingly inhabited. Soul and spirit are stretched – along with body – making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings.”
“Before you were conceived I wanted you. Before you were born I loved you. Before you were here an hour I would die for you. This is the miracle of Mother’s Love.” – Maureen Hawkins
“In giving birth to our babies, we may find that we give birth to new possibilities within ourselves.” –Myla and Jon Kabat-Zinn
“A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten and the future worth living for.”
I’m grateful to have captured these fun and precious moments in the park for this family who will soon meet their child #3!
