In my heart there is definitely a special place marked “especially for newborns”. But as much as I love them I find it quite the painstaking process to attempt to blog about them…
Because, as you know, it's almost impossible to do them justice. If only they weren't so darn ...cute... soft... sweet-smelling...cuddly... and (well, insert basically any and every adoring adjective in the English language here)...
Luckily for me, what a word cannot capture a photograph can!
Meet Levi! He is loved beyond words.
Favorite moment featured in the picture on the right of Mom and Levi together.
And the story behind it is this- Mom and Levi just came back from a feeding. Levi was milk drunk but was still fairly alert. I asked Mom to try to put him to sleep while I set up for the next shot. I was about to do just that when I had the feeling to look over at the two of them together. As I lifted my camera to my eye I was able to witness the most precious moment in history. Levi spread his fingers apart and shot his hand into the air just in time to grasp a lock of Mom's beautiful (even goddess- like) hair. Within that same instant he pulled her hair close to his face and took a deep breath- of what I can only imagine to be his most favorite smell. His eyes closed and were not to be seen again for the remainder of the session. Pretty perfect, huh? Well- I think so too!
Thank you Shawn & Livvy for letting me be part of your journey to parenthood. You are every bit the parents I thought you would be. And more...
Love, Yvette Cherie
