Any of you who knew me when I was pregnant, you know that pregnancy was a less than fun experience for me. I was thrilled when I found out I was having a baby, and I felt feelings that I had never had before just knowing that a human was growing inside of me, but actually being pregnant – the weight gain, the water retention, the back pain, the fatigue – well, these were not some of my best moments. But then, Brittain arrived and my whole life changed. I had talked to so many parents while I was pregnant, all of them saying how my life would never, EVER be the same. It was scary, especially since I liked my life the way it was. They were right. It did change, but it changed for the better and I would never go back to the life I had before this child. I’m with Brittain every day. I work 4 hours a day outside of the house and then I’m with her the rest of the time. All day…all night. What I marvel at is how much she changes on a daily basis. Some may look at this site and wonder if I have anything better to do with my time other than take tons of pictures of her every day. The truth is that yes, I do, but where’s the fun in that? I love every moment that I spend with her – every expression, every cry, every diaper change, every bath…everything. I love trying to capture those moments through pictures. Sometimes it takes MANY pictures to catch a special smile or a priceless expression, but I don’t want to miss those and I love the fact that I can be here with her and experience them as they happen. (Thanks, Dan, for going out and working hard so that I can be home to raise our child.) I don’t want to miss a thing. I love being a mother.
