Let’s be real….having your picture taken a few days after giving birth isn’t on anyone’s list of favorite activities. Unless you are the Duchess of Cambridge of course….and I’m not convinced she’s a real person. She’s basically 80% unicorn. And has a team of stylists that help make her look like that, right? Where’s my team?
Anyway, I wasn’t too excited about getting in front of the camera for Sadie’s newborn photos…but I knew I would regret it if I didn’t. And when I look at the photos right now I see my face was still bloated, my arms and belly don’t look like they normally do, my hands are swollen, and I’m just a little bit tired.
But I know that when Sadie is all grown up those things won’t matter to me. All I’ll see is a beautiful record of my first week with my sweet baby girl. I’ll see how little she was, how cute she was with that little wrinkly forehead. How tiny her feet were. My post-baby body won’t even matter.
