A few weeks ago, we had Baker’s first milestone pictures, 3 months, taken by our photographer, Chase Todd and I just have to share them! Chase did such a good job capturing her little personality. It fell perfectly between her nap and bottle and she was so happy and alert the whole 30-minute session–definitely a relief for our first real photo session since the hospital! Cory and I had a ball just watching Chase and Baker being silly while she hammed it up for the camera.
Go ahead and officially call me the worst blogger ever! This post is, again, a month behind (seriously, she was 4 MONTHS on 11/8) but I’m having the hardest time adjusting to being a working mom and still finding time to do things like blog or shower regularly.
But, I really want to remember these days so I’m composing this post from the notes I’ve jotted down in my phone the past few weeks. Also, Cory is chiming in today because this mama needed some help!
Three whole months with our gal! Month three was such a bittersweet month. We slowly saw our newborn baby fading away and a smiley, more alert baby take her place. Her personality (which is laid back to the core!) really started to surface the past couple of weeks. I really, really enjoyed the newborn stage and while I know I will enjoy each new stage as they come, my time home with Baker was such a sweet, sweet time for us both. From the peaceful feedings to snuggly naps, I feel like I tried my best to soak up every single second I had while on maternity leave.
Holy cow, y’all. That time, she’s a thief. While I love seeing our girl grow and develop into her own little self, it makes me so sad that the sweet newborn moments are quickly fading away. Baker was two months old on September 8th (I’m just a little behind. Ahem.) and boy, has she changed over the last month. Most noticeably? That hair, y’all. It’s completely un-tamable and I love it!
Where have these last four weeks gone? I feel like we just came home from the hospital and there is no way we have been new parents to this perfect baby girl for that long already. She really is perfect–as I’m sure all parents would say of their sweet new baby. This has easily been the best (and most difficult) month of our lives but I wouldn’t trade this time with Baker Bea.
