Photo Shoot for Hazel Part 2: my baby girl



I'm about to get a little cheesy, and maybe even embarrass myself a bit. First, there's something you must know about me. I sing to the radio wherever I drive. I sing loud, and I don't care who sees me. Second, sometimes I listen to the same radio station I complained about my mom listening to for 20 years. Also, I am a huge, huge, bawl baby when it comes to certain matters. Most especially anything pertaining to my family.

The other day, I heard the song "In My Daughter's Eyes" on the radio. I've heard that song a million and one times, and I always sing along. As I was driving down the freeway with both my kids in tote, I started singing as I usually do. No sooner had I sang the word daughter, when a wave of emotion hit me. I now have a daughter. I thought about my darling baby girl all buckled up in the back seat and I began to cry. and cry. and cry. It still makes the tears well just thinking about it. In that moment, something occurred to me. It has become official. I love this baby girl every bit as much as I love my first baby boy. And that, is pretty stiff competition.





Can you believe how well Jen captured the incredible bliss that is the newborn stage? If you're up for more, check out her blog.  Now go watch this and cry a little.

I love them and I'm totally with you on singing to the radio. My song that gets me a choked up is Ray Lamontagne's Hold me on your arms song... I know it's about a girlfriend or something but the chorus... just gets me. I could hold my baby boy in my arms FOREVER, literally.

Beautiful pictures. Your daughter is gorgeous. I'm also worried that I may not love my next child as much as my first. But I guess there is always room in your heart for more love!
