Geneva Joy [Just Brand New]

Lifestyle Personal

New babies are like campfires – you can watch them for hours and all at once nothing changes and everything changes.

Froggy legs

Wrinkled knees

Hands that won’t stay out of her mouth

Flexed toes

Tight, tiny, mad fists

A tongue that sticks out when she cries

And a big brother who climbs into the middle of all things baby and loves and loves and loves.

Meet my new little lady.

It was as if kindness just radiated from them. What I was able to capture was their joy. I found many people - particularly women - who were especially joyful. They were quick to flash a beaming, genuine smile, and quick to burst into laughter - deep, loud, belly-laughter.Even though I could not understand 99% of wh ...

Olive Jane
In my opinion, being asked to be present at the birth of a baby is one of the greatest honors. It means to be allowed to witness one the most painful and vulnerable moments of a woman's life and to be invited to experience - in a most intimate way - the creation of a family. I've been anticipating the birth of miss Olive Jane for months and was thrilled to be awakened in the wee hours of April 7th by a text message that said, "Come on over. Baby's on her way!" As Holly labored at home during the darkest hours of the night, I wished - on her behalf - that it would just.be.over. It was a long labor and I know that there were several momen ...
