Two years ago today… no yesterday (it is after midnight now) I gave birth, via c-section, to a beautiful baby boy. Pierson Isaiah was never small… he weighed in at 9 pounds 4 ounces and was 22 inches long. He is my little firecracker, and continues to help me grow daily in ways I didn’t even know I needed to grow and change.
I thank God for my strong willed little boy. I know he can do anything he puts his mind to, and someday he will not give into feelings of helplessness because he is so strong. My prayer is that he uses this mighty personality he was given in some mighty ways to do good, and stand up for the Truth.
Tonight as I put him to bed I did feel a little sad. I have had a baby for almost 4 years (first Charlotte, then Pierson) and now I feel like I don’t have one anymore. I love his juicy kisses and big bear hugs. I dread the day that he stops giving them out so freely. I wish there were a way I could just bottle them all up, and save them for later… someday kissing mommy will be gross.
My goal is to enjoy my kids more…. I can get pretty caught up with photography, editing, and keeping people happy. I hope that you (friends and clients) can understand that too. I love the clientele that I do have because most of you are in the same boat as I am with young children underfoot. It is a constant balancing act for me, and I don’t always do it right, and I don’t always do it well, but I am trying… I am working hard and sometimes all I can do is the best I can do. Charlotte and Pierson are only going to be this little once, and I don’t want to miss a beat.
Okay, enough words from me… I like photos more then words anyway! Enjoy! I was going to edit more photos after writing this, but now I just want to go kiss my kids and get some rest so we can play together tomorrow.
