Every once in a while, something or someone special comes along and throws your world completely upside down. For me, that person is my little bug, my son, Miles James, now 7 months old.
Being this little guy's mama has been the most incredible experience. From the moment he arrived, life has been completely different: joyful and satisfying, playful with such excitement, tearful and so hard - but the most worthwhile experience of my whole life. It is so hard to put into words how you are changed from that second they enter the world.
it makes me a bit sad to have neglected the things I used to want to spend my time doing, like photography and making new products for my Etsy store Dream Like Trees. But, life is now about figuring out how to fit them into this new life with a little babe, and all you can do is move forward.
I have, at least, been trying every month to come up with new photos of Miles to show how he's growing. Here are some of my favorites from the first 6 months:
These apples are from the apple tree in our yard - so happy to have a use for them!
Miles and I collected these leaves from a neighborhood walk around Greenlake
The branches used here were cut from our Christmas tree!
I'd been experimenting with felt garlands and used this one as a decoration from our Christmas tree!
