Oh my goodness! So much to share about one of my favorite new things I’m doing this year. I decided to hold baby minis. Little sessions to capture those moments of success to celebrate a milestone accomplished in both a baby’s life and the life of a mother who is doing her best to cheer on her baby. For the most part when I see a baby for a milestone session the mothers have crossed over from pure survival to taking a breath here and there. This is an opportunity to celebrate how far you two have come and recognize your progress. This means your baby smiles…and they smile at seeing you! That sweet baby has neck strength now and can hold up that big head on it’s own!!! No more worrying about bobble head! There is a good chance they are doing tummy time and their plank might just be better than yours!
For our older babies…. you notice they have found their toes! They can push their little bodies here and there for some sort of crawl…and although it may seem like they are always going backwards in life they are actually getting somewhere! And for our oldest babies they are sitting independently and toys are their new best friends and for that matter yours too! Finally some entertainment that isn’t you. You can enjoy them enjoying lights, sounds, touch, and taste as everything now goes straight in their mouth!
Make a habit of celebrating the milestones Mama. You’ve come along way in a very short time!
