the second baby. so much of it seems easier this go around. in the same way that your body settled into pregnancy sooner, you are more prepared mentally and physically for the demands of caring for a human life. the rhythm of childhood already runs through your household. the feeling of loving another so deeply and so vulnerably has been a reality every day for a couple of years now. of giving your body and your mind and your spirit over entirely day after every single day. you are familiar with milestones and joys ahead and so the harder moments seem no less difficult but perhaps more fleeting because this time is short and will pass in the blink of an eye and though there may be no sleep and there may be more tantrums this go around there is an ever present knowledge that this season of life is short and so very sweet.
oh man do we love these three. kait and i grew up just miles from each other in the same small town of east tennessee but had never met until our husband's respective creative pursuits brought us to sunny l.a. and what a special milestone to witness, the birth of a first baby, the beginning of a family. we couldn't be more in love with little lewis wolfgang (bangarang name, right?!), and can't wait to watch this little los angeles native grow. also, how stunning is kait especially in those black and white film images? what a classic beauty. thanks for sharing life with us, you three. xo
This kid is too much, I don't even know where to start - with the crazy cute striped-onesies, his big blue eyes, his super-squeezable self or those ridiculously hilarious facial expressions? Mike & Katy - the super proud parents of one super adorable baby Elliott - were so generous in letting me take over their beautiful home and peak into their everyday lives with their new little bundle. I feel so blessed to have an inside look at the overwhelming love and wonder that new parents feel; thank you for sharing that with me. xo
