Pregnancy is an amazing time. We as women are given the awe-inspiring power to create and carry life. For nine months, we are wrapped up in this little world of anticipation and love. There is an incredible, indescribable bond between baby and mother, and those first nine months are ours alone to experience. We can describe the feelings, we can let others feel the kicks – but those precious months are the only time when we get the baby all to ourselves. It is fleeting, and in the midst of all the excitement and preparations we can let it all slip by without notice.
Then the baby arrives, and we stare in awe at the newness, the tiny limbs and wrinkled skin. Sleepy, serene moments are treasured, late night cries are tended, and the new baby quickly loses the ‘new’ and grows at an alarming rate – changing drastically from week to week.
That first year of life is a blur – so many milestones, so many changes. It can be hard to keep track of it all, and it’s incredible to think how different our babies are after just one year. As we look back, it’s hard to believe that so much happened in such a short span of time.
Don’t let these days go undocumented. Heartbeats sessions are the perfect way to capture each and every stage in this spectacular process. Choose a baby plan that fits for you – selecting the ages/milestones that make sense for your life – and make sure you don’t miss a moment.
