Merry Christmas everybody! I was just reflecting that this time last year we broke the news to family that we were gonna have a baby. And what a baby we ended up with! He has the most beautiful blue eyes, chunky thighs, furrowed brows, and a sweet dimpled smile. I know people say this quite a lot, but becoming his mama is the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me. He makes me strong, healthy, and happy. He makes me (glad to be) a morning person. He makes me silly. Suddenly I care less of what people think, and listen more carefully to my own instincts.
We didn’t do professional photos or Christmas cards this year, but I did have a chance to snap some quick photos. I’m happy that I got at least a few in focus–propping up a wiggly baby with one hand and trying to hold the camera still in the other will be a skill I’ll need to master quickly.
Merry Christmas from Rowan Fox (4 months old), and of course MJ and I. [Read more…]
