Cole’s Baby Story
As a Huntsville Newborn Photographer, I love to send new moms a few questions long before their baby is born. After baby Cole’s newborn photoshoot, I included the answers his mom gave me in Cole’s personalized baby album, and his mama agreed to let me share some of Cole’s baby story with you!
We are really excited and slightly nervous about having a second child, but we know it will be amazing.
We decided to not find out the gender, so that is a really exciting surprise this time around!
I feel so incredibly honored and blessed that God would not only bless us with one child, but two. I am so humbled to be their mom.
I will definitely make mistakes along the way, but I want them to know that I love them so incredibly much, pray for them daily, and strive to reflect Christ’s love for them even through my failings.
Cole has a verse his mother painted onto a canvas that hangs over his crib. It absolutely tugged at my heartstrings, because it is the life verse I gave my first son and tell him every time I tuck him in bed.
This is the one piece of wisdom Cole’s mom would like to share with her children; that they would carry with them throughout their life and share with their own children:
To follow and trust God with all their heart. He will never fail them.
Bonus: Love people where they are in life. You never know what trials they have gone through or are currently going through, and giving grace is so important.
Cole’s mom wanted to let other expecting moms know:
Everyone says enjoy every moment because they don’t stay little for long. That is a lot of pressure. In the midst of sleep deprivation and physical, mental, and emotional healing, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to enjoy every single moment. There will be hard days and weeks, but there is something good in each phase of raising a child. Make it a point to write down or capture those moments. You will need them during the tough times. It’s also easy to forget these little moments during the early years, so having them documented helps jog your memory as you reflect back on this time.
