Kara is 1 month old.
ONE MONTH OLD.
This is motherhood — it is life in fast forward. It feels like the moment you give birth to your first child, your life is suddenly moving so fast that you can barely breathe. With the birth of my second, and last baby, I now feel like things are so final. My baby-making days are over, and each baby-milestone I pass with Kara will be my last.
I want to wrap her up in my arms, inhale her sweetness, and stop time. I want to curl up in this moment with both of my children.
Until I can figure out how to do that, I have to take photos. Lots, and lots of photos. This is Kara’s first month of life — captured.
