They still fit inside the circle of your arms for so very long; somehow, even though they are growing out of clothes and socks and eating everything in the world.....they still fit into you.

We all know that Freshies are just about my favorite thing and this sweet snowy day was no exception to that rule! Little Jaxon Luke had made his appearance in the world and I ran right over to meet him!
This little one had the most adorable chunky cheeks and the most impossibly awful smelling gas! It was a wild ride of " awww how cute and OMG what is that ?!?!" Good thing he was so adorable!! Mom and dad didn't care, and of course neither did I, too funny though.
All of a sudden, it's two weeks later and I'm on my way to see that babe in his house; all snuggled up with mom and dad, and fur siblings! Everyone was settled into a nice routine and of course, a little bit obsessed with the new family memeber.
Many children are wished for and celebrated; this little one was SO wished for and his arrival was greeted with that impossible euphoria of a dream come true.
Welcome to the World Jaxon, you are so very very loved already!
Why would I want a photograph of my child crying? Don't we all want images of our sweet babies being perfect, smiling doll babies?
Sure. It's great to have images of your child looking super happy and loving their little life. Definitely. But as a parent, you know your little angel is not laughing 100% of the day. Some days are hard, some are full of struggles and wails and boo hoo babies. Those need extra hugs, extra snuggles, extra love that only we can provide. Those days are hard now, but as our sweet ones grow up , they turn to our arms less and less for comfort. Those damp, sobbing hugs will become a sweet memory of when we could fix it with a kiss on the forehead and a song.
Personally, I love the crying baby images. There's something extra true and real about them and yes, I make them of my son too. Ou power as parents is limited. We can't take away their sorrows, but we can hug them into feeling better and those days are numbered.
