Cherish The Moments

Wolf was just a day old here.

Yesterday, my husband and I went to meet the newest tiny baby on the block, born just 5 days ago.  When I first saw him, I couldn’t believe how tiny he was, but yet he weighed in at just 2 ounces bigger than Wolf when he was born.  It sent my mind into a shuffle trying to remember Wolf being that small and it kind of made my heart ache.

I left feeling a little sad.  Wolf is nearly 2 months old and I feel like we hardly have any photos to remember him this small.  Sometimes I feel a little bi polar when it comes to motherhood.  Each passing day seems a little bittersweet.  While Wolf is getting bigger and becoming generally more joyful, I still long for those precious first moments when he was so tiny.

So last night I made a promise to myself to not only take more photos, especially more of us holding him.  I also promised to take more videos and write more down.  I don’t want to look back 5 years down the road and wish that I’d taken more.

Now I’m off to buy some film for my camera and hunt for a baby book!
