we did a newborn session with charlotte of course. so thankful i have talented friends like lisa boggs to come over and take these for me. after trying to do charlotte’s newborn session myself (and failing miserably), i finally called in the troops and had my dear friend lisa come spend the morning with us. i knew that doing your own newborn session just wasn’t realistic for me, especially since instead of enjoying it, i would be “working” it and my husband would be playing assistant. even still i tried, and it ended with charlotte crying, me crying, and husband just overwhelmed with all these females crying. so yes…lisa boggs! she is the best. charlotte was 5wks and i already can’t believe how different she looks! i especially love the time in our life this represents. we had a rough start to the whole parenting thing those first few weeks. lots of overwhelmed feelings, baby blues, huge roadblocks with breastfeeding, and just getting the hang of it all. this session was in the midst of a turning point for us…it was right around then that breastfeeding finallllyy started working out, we discovered she had pretty bad acid reflux which explained so much of the sleepless nights and endless crying, and chris’ mom came for a month to help out. it is also fun to look back and see me feeding charlotte a bottle, since that was the beginning of my dairy-free journey (which is thankfully over!) and we fed her forumla while waiting for the dairy in my system to clear out. that was also when she (finally thank you baby jesus!) decided to take a pacifier. so much has changed since then but i love looking back at these and seeing how much charlotte // ms. potts // sweet baby girl // charley // poops magoops // sista friend // punk // charliqua // my baby has changed!
