Written on 4/17/2019 in the hospital after Cohen was born.
I should be sleeping. Cohen Samuel is at the foot of my bed in his cozy bassinet, swaddled with his little belly full. His feet kicking up occasionally to the sound of his daddy snoring to my left on the uncomfortable hospital couch. And I am here, awake. I know I should be sleeping.
But it’s hard to sleep when you recognize the life-changing moments sweeping over you and slipping through your fingers all at once. The most beautiful minutes and hours of my life.
Since I couldn’t sleep, I checked my email and saw that my maternity photos that Sarah took of us on Saturday evening were ready to view and download. Looking at them, I have tears in my eyes. They’re beautiful. They capture everything I want to remember forever about our last moments as a family of three awaiting the arrival of our sweet Cohen. I look at them and I can’t believe all that has happened in the span of just a few days. I can’t believe all that God has given me. I have been blessed with so much.
It’s such a blessing to have maternity photos like these to cherish forever. There’s something so special about finding the right person to capture your memories and emotions in photos, and Sarah does that so beautifully and effortlessly! She gave us such great direction and got the perfect shots even with Landon only being partly cooperative (as to be expected of an almost 4-year-old)! We just had the best time hanging out with her, laughing, and snapping these photos!
