Here’s to a brand New Year! Thinking about all the new things I want to see happen this year for my personal life and business. It can be exciting and overwhelming. New things are hard to start because they are new and not familiar. We haven’t built up confidence or muscle memory for the task.
All of this reminds me of a Fresh 48 session. Those first few hours are all of that and more. New baby, new demands, overwhelming exhaustion, surprise visits around the clock, mesh panties, nursing attempts, and the list goes on.
This is the point where I had my first emotional tears wrapped around mommy guilt. There was so much going on I couldn’t store the memories I knew I wanted to remember of the sweetest girl I’ve ever met. I already knew I would forget those first few hours one day. The moments not documented. The only real memory I have of Savannah and I was in the early morning probably around 2am after I attempted to nurse her and it was just the two of us. I remember unwrapping her blanket and just staring in wonder of this child and knowing this would be the greatest adventure but it was going to be a hard journey.
Sometimes the fresh 48 session is a gift. It’s a moment to snuggle and cuddle each other and this new babe of yours. I encourage unwrapping and counting toes too! 😘
