Three weeks ago, we welcomed our beautiful baby girl into the world! And so this afternoon, while my husband has the twins at a birthday party and I am sitting in a unusually quiet house, I thought I'd sit down and attempt to get a blog post up. I was going to share Charlotte Adalynn's birth story on my blog, just as I shared my twin birth story. I still plan on doing that, but for today, I thought I'd get back into the swing of things with an easy post, which is why I'm blogging about Baby Girl's newborn pictures.
Even with a fussy baby ~ and two toddlers who refused to sit still unless you gave them a cookie or put a TV show on for them ~ Kingfish Photography still managed to get some beautiful pictures of our newest addition to the family. Dave has always taken great photos for our family. Be sure to look them up on Facebook if you are local to Indiana.
I say all of that to say that while I hate the way my body looks in pictures with my newborns, simply because I'm still 20-30 pounds away from my pre pregnancy weight at two weeks postpartum, I still TREASURE these pictures with my newborn babies. They are special, and I don't regret getting them taken. In fact, I'd kick myself if I didn't get them taken. Pictures are special to me. They are what triggers my memories, and I want to remember these years of having little ones at my feet and in my arms needing their Mama, because one day, they won't need me anymore. One day they will be grown.
