Happy Monday! I find that even now that I stay home with my children, Monday is still the longest, slowest, hardest day of the week. Why is that? It is not that Mondays are necessarily bad, just that it is extremely hard to get going and be productive on that day.
I decided to start this Monday morning early and with a short, fun to-do list. I make a list of things I want to accomplish each day, but last night I made two. The first was a fun one, the second was a not so fun one. I usually try to “do the worst thing first” since that piece of advice given to me by my Aunt Kristi a few years ago seems to fight my procrastinating ways. Today though, I am knocking out the fun tasks early in hopes that the momentum I get by accomplishing those tasks will keep me pushing on this Monday!
Task number one is to order prints of baby #2’s precious newborn photos. While I am at it, I am sharing a few of my favorites with you! My friend Sarah Thomas of Hopscotch Photography took these, and I am so happy with how they turned out!
I treasure the detail shots of little hands, feet and newborn baby hair. Those are things that change so quickly and without this documentation, I am afraid my sleep deprived brain would have lost those images forever. I am also so glad she captured sweet sleepy facial expressions that are only seen in those fleeting first few weeks. These were taken when he was only seven days old, and they are just so precious to us!
*I have added my watermark to these photographs to protect the images, but I want to be clear that I did not take them. They were all taken by Sarah Thomas of Hopscotch Photography. You can find her on Facebook.
