Personal Blog | Moments
I have a little more time at the moment ,emphasis on little, and I’m determine to sort out my own pictures. Starting with my, now 10 month olds, newborn session. (I will still show you those) But I came across these, taken on the same day as the newborn session. She was only 5 days old in these photos. I could not even remember that I have taken these, but looking back in the archives these are so much more valuable to my heart than the “NEWBORN SESSION” I am so glad I have taken these. Yes your newborn sessions and annual family photos have there place, a very important place but don’t let them be the only pictures you take.
This is ouma giving her, her bath. She will never fit into ouma’s hands just like that.
I guess what I’m trying to say take photo’s every single day!
Treasure these moments and don’t look back at them right away. Leave them for a while to simmer, these moments get better as your memories fades, and I quote Dr Suess :” Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory” Pictures are the only thing that is witness to your memories, don’t forget to take them ……

Why was I so desperate to have a natural birth?
Yes, it would have been a most empowering experience for me and yes my next one will be a VBAC, but was it really that important in the bigger scheme of things? At the end of it all we got what we set out to achieve – a human being that we could guide and mould and set free into the world for her to make her own impact. Maybe that trauma she and I both endured in getting her Earthside happened exactly how it was supposed to. That’s birth and even more so parenting – you set off on a course with big plans and that’s great, but there has to be flexibility and acceptance in changing course depending on whatever life (or your kid) throws at you.
After a minute or so we heard your first loud cry. It was glorious and we could finally breathe. Sr Lotter brought you to us and our hearts melted, my boy. You were beautiful. We checked for 10 fingers and 10 toes and we couldn’t stop looking at you. The happiest moment of our lives. You were born at 11:33 weighing 3.49kg and measuring 53cm.
