When you have your first child you go into it thinking you know some things but are completely terrified of everything you do not. You soon realize that you were right, there is a lot you don’t know; but you will also be amazed at all you can do. When your second child comes, you go into it with a little more confidence. So when I was pregnant with my third child, I felt like ‘I’ve got this!’.
But as life likes to do, it throws a wrench in things. While on vacation hundreds of miles from home, my son was unexpectedly born 8 weeks early. After 19 days in the NICU he was finally able to released and we could make the long trip home. This July was 4 years from when he should have been born, so I am finally sharing the pictures I took in May from his 4-year-old birthday shoot.
