Now that you're here with me...

Oh do I have a special surprise for you today!

I have spent so much of these first two months in pure "survival" mode - trying to figure out life as a family of four and all that this involves. Now that we are getting into our rhythm and the clock is ticking on my maternity leave, I've had some time to go back and do a few little projects. I'm almost finished with Beatrice's full birth story, but in the meantime I wanted to share these two things: 1) The images from our newborn photo session, 2) The best song, "Here with me" by Frances England, that touched me so deeply the first time that I heard it that it has heard it and has sort of become Bea's theme song. Crank up the volume, listen to the words and enjoy the photos!

Watch below, or for even more fun, click on this link and open the video full screen from youtube.
