I feel like my people around me are having more babies during this pandemic than before! I believe in Devine intervention, and I do believe this is part of it! I am honored to have gotten to spend time with this wonderful family twice! It is also such a beautiful thing watching a woman go from being pregnant to holding their little baby! This Muriel Sahlin Arboretum Newborn Session was so fun to be a part of!
Its so amazing what our bodies can do and what they can handle! What I loved the most about this session was to sit back and watch this family. Sameer’s twinkle in his eye for his wife and daughter was very neat to watch. Their energy and love for each other was so cool to see. Even through the hardships of adjusting to having a newborn, including trying to get out of the house WITH baby, I could feel such strong love with these two. I remember it being almost impossible when my little Tayden was born trying to leave; grabbing the bottles (because I couldn’t nurse), having enough diapers, and of course THREE extra outfits for blow outs (whose sugar coating anything)! How about the emotions of everything with having a baby!? I remember being so happy, yet so sad at the drop of a hat. I remember feeling blessed get my rainbow baby in hands, yet like such a failure for not being able to breast feed my colicky child. I felt honored to carry my baby till 39 weeks despite early dilation at 21 weeks, but I felt like an inadequate mother because I couldn’t ever get my BABY sleep. I felt nostalgic that even though I didn’t have time for medications (which I wanted so desperately with my second baby) I DID IT without! Emotions. WERE CRAZY. And so normal.
I soon realized that I was not alone. I realized after my emotions had settled in, that everything was ok. I have been quite emotional lately because I have come to terms that my now three year old will be our last baby. Blessed. Bittersweet. Seeing this sweet young little Senna girl snuggled up in her mamas arms melts my heart and reminded me of my babies!
I am so happy for this family and the beautiful start to their new journey as a family of four! (We can not discount sweet little fur ball Finn!) Congrats Kelly and Sameer! Senna is beautiful!
