CONNECT:

Raising little ones is all consuming. We worry if we are doing enough… we worry if we are doing too much… We find ourselves concentrating so hard on our littles & wonder what is left of the person we were before their arrival. Mama, we all feel it. Let’s journey together, lift each other up & be a village for one another…

What He Sees

My little one is at this wonderful age where he pauses at every photo in the house and names the people he sees…
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Those photos silently signal to him what we hold dear in our life… as he flips through the custom designed photo albums for our kids, he sees grandparents, parents and siblings…
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And then he sees himself… He sees his smile and his chubby fingers… He sees the sweet expressions that we see everyday…
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Watching his face beam with joy upon seeing himself warms my soul. He exclaims “caught it” and mimics his action of catching a kiss that was blown to him. Then he just smiles looking at himself and you see it – the understanding that he’s important. He’s worth documenting and preserving. He matters. He’s one of the ones we hold dear. We care.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sure, in life there are a million and one ways to show a child their worth – special activities, one on one dates, displaying their artwork, even simple bedtime routines being prioritized over the latest episode of This Is Us… but having them recognize it on their own… having them see that we took the time to put them into a book, onto the wall, on the shelf instead of letting those precious memories hide on our phones or on Instagram where they cannot freely see them – that just brings such a circle of joy between my child and myself…

If you see me offering these tangible momentous more and more, it’s because I see these moments play out in my own home and I see the value it brings to our lives. It’s about providing these special moments for you and your family. Every time I deliver an album I know in my heart that I have just handed off a treasured family heirloom that will be providing joy and memories for years and years to come… And that is what this is all about…

XOXO
