I took these photos about two weeks ago, and they really aren’t anything special. They’re a little bit blurry, a little bit random, and aren’t super smiley. But, it was a lazy, sleepy, Monday morning before I got started with work, and Barrett and I decided to just spend a few minutes together playing in his nursery, soaking up the morning light. It was after another somewhat sleepless night, and both of us had dark circles under our eyes, (I’m not sure who needed coffee more!) but full hearts. I threw on his outfit from Church the day before, and tried to be present with my sweet boy.
His window faces east, so there are just a few hours every morning where the warm sun spills in and creates a warm ambiance that’s otherwise pretty dark. I grabbed my camera to document him in his nursery, just to get a few everyday shots of him that didn’t feel posed or forced. He was in that sweet spot where he was sitting up on his own, but starting to enter the very beginning phase of army crawling and rocking on all fours. Now, just two weeks later, it’s hard to believe we were even in this phase because he’s crawling all over the house!
This is just a friendly reminder, mama, to take more day-in-the-life photos. Grab your camera and document the unposed, in-between moments that may not mean much now, but might feel extra special in the baby book. Not every photo needs to be posed, or over-thought.
Thank you again for stopping by, and for sharing in these sweet motherhood moments with me.
