My little dude is already one month old!
Just as I did with Eli (and wish I had thought to start earlier with Lily), I plan to take monthly portraits of Miles to track this rapidly evolving first year.
I usually just write or print off a little sign with the month on it that the baby quickly learns to grab/rip/chew. Tricky. But last week I received in the post an absolutely charming little gift... a whole set of singlets with the months ironed on!! They were a wonderfully thoughtful present from Tarnya, who I 'met' through last year's Documenting Delight project. Go check out her blog Get In the Good Light and prepare to be stunned not only at the cuteness of her son but also her incredible photography talents....she amazes and inspires me. She also touched my heart with such a sweet gift that will be soooo appreciated and utilised this year - thank you, lovely lady!
I could not resist displaying the whole adorable stack (each singlet appropriately sized of course) and just marveling at this 'year at a glance' that I think is going to go Way Too Fast for this mum!!!
Anyway.... to rewind just a bit, back to that first day at home....
|He was sleeping and then suddenly gave this huge sleepy 'smile'.... too cute!|
|My wise little man at one month old... |
Okay, time I need you to slow down a little!!
|You know, I usually can't see anything of myself in my kids but with|
Miles for the first time, I do see glimpses of myself as a baby...
except he is much, much cuter, of course!
Just had to include this one....
I was meaning to collage them all together but my editing software is being glitchy (or maybe it's just my brain that is glitchy today!), so rather than driving myself crazy trying to work it out I will just leave it till next month and hope for your forgiveness for the scattered posting here! Also the second Baby Daze installment will be coming soon too.
Oh, baby Miles. You are one month old... it seems like so much longer and yet shorter all at the same time. All I know is that you are the perfect fit for our family and we are all utterly in love with you. My dreamy, delightful, delicious baby boy. I honestly cannot imagine not having you here with us. Love, love, love you xx
