This morning, I got a call at 2:09am that one of my sweet birth moms was getting closer to delivering their first baby. She was induced last night and none of us expected to even be at the hospital until later this afternoon, much less in the middle of the night. But everything went so well and I can’t wait to share their sweet baby girl with you next week!
One thing this birth made me realize though is that in less than 6 months, we will be back at the hospital to meet our second baby girl… and I can’t wait! Our experience this second time around will be completely different since it will be a scheduled c-section, but that doesn’t matter to be one bit. We just want our sweet girl to arrive safely and to be healthy :-)
The second thing it made me realize is that I have two more births that I’m scheduled to photograph before we meet our little girl and I’m only going to get bigger and bigger as those approach! So, I went today with that in mind and tried to shoot things a little differently than I usually do. But I’m so happy with the images! It gave me confidence that I’ll be just fine at these upcoming births.
The third thing this birth reminded me of was that we have just 6 months left with Catherine as an only child… #allthetears. She’s already growing up so fast and we LOVE this stage she’s in and I can’t wait to see her as a big sister. But of course, I’m already worrying about having two in the house and my attention being divided and what all of that will look like.
Thankfully though, God has it all under control (because let’s face it, I never have and never will have it “under control”!) and He’s known since the beginning that we would have a family and I would be running a business as a work-at-home-mom. So all I can do is continue to trust. And sometimes that’s easier said than done :-)
Happy Friday, everyone! I’m going to bed since I’ve been up since 2am, but I’ll leave you with two of my three loves snuggling the other night as Ben got her ready for bed. #allthefeels
