I met Catherine at the early hour of the morning that I used to hear about, but never experienced prior to parenthood. Stacy and Jeff welcomed me in with smiles and coffee.
They all piled onto their bed... Mommy, Daddy, Megan, baby Catherine, and their pup, and we just hung out. Snacks, nursing, cuddles, and a movie... It was so incredibly COMFORTABLE and RELAXED.
Exactly how one should meet a newborn... in the place they are getting to know as home, in their daily little routine.
And big sister Megan... she is just so incredibly sweet. She was excited to show me her baby sister, her room, and her flowers. Then she wanted to look for bunnies out of the window. ❤
I love when I get to meet a newborn and I can spend time with the family just BEING a family. Cozy clothes, lounging in bed, the smell of coffee, and deliriously sleepy and happy faces all around. Those are the authentic moments that come with welcoming a new baby. The moments we will miss even when the little ones decided to let us sleep through the night later on.
Mahoney family... thank you for inviting me into your home and introducing me to Catherine. She's a keeper.
