Yesterday I had two sessions. My last two sessions before maternity leave. The morning session was for a sweet one year old babyplanner at the Arboretum (to be blogged in a bit) – it went great, we even beat the rain! Then I headed across the Metroplex for a newborn session in Fort Worth. I’d been waiting on Ben to arrive, hoping he’d beat out my own little guy! His big sister made mom & dad wait 10 days past their due date before making her arrival 21 months ago…and you know her if you follow the blog, sweet Sami was one of my first baby planners back in 2008.
Ben didn’t disappoint. Arriving just two days past his due date, on Mother’s Day. He’s long and lean, with a gorgeous head of blonde hair and blue eyes…just like his big sister. He was perfect for the session. Absolutely perfect…you know except for that small incident of projectile poop that covered my shirt! The incident that caused tears to roll down my cheeks and his mom’s cheeks, that sent Nan for paper towels once she stopped laughing, the uncles to opposite sides of the room, and dad for his camera so he could document the whole scene. Because, after all, it was a funny, very funny.
We finished the session without any problems. Ben was awesome. And then it happened…I totally lost my balance walking down their slick driveway in the rain. You can imagine what it looks like when a 9-months pregnant woman, in a skirt none the less, takes a spill…not pretty. I spent the night hanging out in L&D…getting the all clear to go home about midnight. I’m fine, the little guy is fine, but my knee is less than stellar. Awesome, I know. But it explains the delay in the sneak peek, and the reason this is one session I’ll never forget!
