Last week I had the immense joy of celebrating two birthdays.
Luckily, Melissa’s photography helps me to feel very near to Baby Zelda despite the distance. With her lens capturing every eyelash, each crease of the hand, and the precious curling newborn toes, I can almost feel that soft baby-skin. But her lens has magically collected more than just that! It’s the emotion, the connection, and the sum of those details that make these hospital photos special.
The second birthday celebration last week was my daughter’s 11th birthday. Can it be 11 years already since my labor day with my own baby girl?!
A day at Disneyland and a girlie slumber party filled our weekend with appropriate celebratory glee and gladness. I know all too well that the next 11 years will fly by even faster, and these days of roller coasters and giggles and ice cream and face painting will be behind us all too soon. And because of that I make no apologies for gushing over newborn babies and taking part in the sweet silliness of being childlike!
