Life is really full of surprises. 🙂
October 2nd was my birthday and I was 33 weeks +2 days pregnant with our first child. I had ideas and visions of what maternity photos I wanted to get, but had yet to do them. On the 2nd, it was a beautiful Autumn day and the foliage was just amazing! Plus my mum had knitted me this adorable “Bump Sweater” as a birthday gift and I was excited to get some photos with it. However, I was feeling super tired and had a lot of work to get done so I told Devin that we could wait and do some belly photos next week. I was not even 34 weeks yet and normally with my own maternity clients, we wait until around 34 or 35 weeks to do a session! 🙂 Luckily he talked me into doing some photos on October 2nd because on October 7th at 34 weeks on the dot our son Brennan Julius decided to arrive 6 weeks before his estimated due date. Life is full of surprises. 🙂
After just under 2 very busy weeks of going back and forth to the hospital and NICU, we were able to bring our son home. 🙂 He truly has interwined himself within our hearts, souls and life together. I never thought I would love someone more than I love Devin, but now I must admit that I have truly fallen in love with another boy. 😉 His little going home outfit says, “Thank Heaven for Little Boys” across the front. 🙂 I couldn’t agree more!
Due to his unexpected early arrival, things on the blog will be a little slower to update. Initially I had planned to take the month of October and pre-post all of the features and posts that would cover my maternity leave in mid-November, however…best laid plans! 🙂 Bear with us as we adjust to parenthood earlier than expected and enjoy these bonus 6 weeks we have been gifted with our little boy! 🙂 I am still available via email (email@example.com) for questions and inquiries. Thank you for ALL of the well wishes and congratulations that have been showered on us! We truly have a very broad community of support. 🙂 be well, Kathleen
