What I Miss Most About Having A Newborn

How is it possible that my youngest baby, Bentley, is going to be a one-year-old on March 1st?! I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how quickly time flies by and how much I miss him being a teenie-tiny baby who slept most of the hours of the day, yet somehow barely slept at night.

Having a newborn can be a bit stressful because it definitely throws off your sleep schedule, but I really do miss those days when Bentley was brand new to the world, needing my help every hour of the day and night. There really is nothing like the bond between a newborn and his momma.

Here a few of the things I miss most about having a newborn in our house:

Tips from a Pro: How to Take the Best Pictures of Your Baby

Other than going to JCPenney for photos, I had never worked with a professional photographer — let alone one who specializes in shooting outdoors with natural light.

After seeing beautiful images of a friend’s baby, I knew I had to shoot with this photographer as soon as I had the chance. As anticipated, the photos turned out amazing.

Pajama Days with My Baby

Three days of the week my daughter goes to daycare while I work. But the last two days of the week she stays home with me. At least one of those days is always deemed a pajama day. 

Bath Time Fun with Dad

Something that I appreciate about my husband is that he handles the kids’ bath time every night. I usually spend the time sitting in bed reading a book or watching a TV show on my iPad. It’s glorious. But I don’t completely unplug because I like to listen in on the fun everyone is having in the bathroom. 

A Look at the Year - My How He's Grown!

In just a few weeks, we will be celebrating Soren’s first birthday! It’s currently SO cold in Georgia…this time last year, I was very pregnant and we were getting lots of snow and ice. I remember being so anxious to meet Soren and just counting down the days until I would become a mommy and finally get to meet my little man. I have felt extra nostalgic these past couple days as we’ve been planning Soren’s birthday. Looking through pictures, watching videos. It’s been an incredible road…2014 was a year I will always cherish and remember.

I am absolutely amazed at how much growing little ones do in only a year. Going from being tiny ones to nearly toddlers in 12 months is crazy. Learning to babble, play, sit, stand, walk, dance, eat, make silly sounds, laugh, smile, reach. Every little and big milestone has been an incredible joy to watch.

I’ve been so honored to be Soren’s mommy. He’s taught me a lot about myself and given me the incredible role of motherhood. He has brought our little family so much joy and continues to make us laugh and love life even more.

To celebrate almost 1 year, I’m sharing some of my favorite photos from 0-11 months. :)
