Those First Few Moments!

When I found out I was pregnant with Baba I knew that I would be one of those mothers that had to record absolutely every moment in his life.

I was not wrong, we have thousands, and I am not lying there of pictures of him. We have home-made films, scrapbooks, professional photos, photos in frames round the whole house. You name it we have it.

In the past two years we have taken so many pictures and a day has never gone by without a camera very near someone in the house! I have just never wanted to miss a thing!

So the competition over at Diary Of A First Child was just perfect for me, and I knew that I wanted to enter.

We need to create something that celebrates the children in your life. It can be a special occasion, summer holiday, how you spent time together, or something you remember.

I really struggled with this, who would have thought that, with my massive archive! But I wanted to create something amazing as I always do, when it comes to things like this. I am very self-critical in my art and photography. Until I remembered his scrapbook album. Now I have done the first year already, but have not yet completed Baba second year, so I thought I would have a look through and see what I could find!

These pages are Baba’s first few moments with Mr L and I, when two became three!

They were taken before any visitors arrived, my sister being the first! They were taken before I had to leave the labour ward, there are literally his first hour or so alive. To me there is no bigger thing to celebrate other than Baba’s birth, it was the most amazing experience ever and one that will be always remembered in this way.

This was Baba and my first cuddle and I was overwhelmed, tired and totally emotional but it was a lovely moment.

At this point there was only myself, Baba and Mr L in the room. Mr L gave Baba his first bottle, and this picture of the two of them together I love it is one of my favourite pictures of all time, and just shows everything Mr L is feeling, he was in awe of the whole thing!

(C) 2010 And Then All I Thought About Was You

This is Baba all wrapped up in his hospital cot, I want to share with you the words that I wrote on this page.

I remember being told that you have never felt love UNTIL the birth of your first child and thinking this really couldn’t be true. Yes it was a different love, but that was all. UNTIL I HAD YOU!

When I first saw you I had an overwhelming love that I cannot explain. It was so powerful and true. I know until the end of my days that love will always be there. As I will always be there for you.

These are some of the most important pictures in my life and they are the ones that I look at that still make me feel all funny inside and bring back memories so fresh of when we became a family for the first time!

    That’s lovely, and what a great thing for your son to look back on. I think you’re right about the photos – my husband and I probably took more in the first six months of our son’s life than we had in the rest of our relationship!
