Since Rowan's birth time has been elusive;I don't know where it goes. Days seem to fly by without notice, and yet I am living more in the moment than I ever have before. It is amazing how a new life affects those around it. A friend of mine told me she thought her baby niece was healing her mother. I think babies have a positive and healing impact because they require us to abandon so much of the baggage we carry around with us on a daily basis and to just experience the here and now. Life with a baby is a form of living meditation.

I have been trying to capture Rowan's baby feet for weeks now. They seem to be constantly in motion, so it has been a difficult task. I still have more shots to go through, but I thought this one wasn't too bad once converted to black and white. As I look at this image more closely, I think it might be interesting to include something which gives a sense of scale...these are itty bitty feet!

Most of my creative energy these days is going towards calming an unhappy baby. Amazingly it takes endless energy as it seems Rowan always want to see some new trick mom is willing to do to keep him from crying. I was however able to get our announcement together which was a lot of fun. I made a little watercolor inspired by the rowan trees in Ireland for the top. Then, I took a million photos of Rowan and decided this one would fit well. Finally, my favorite part was bringing it all together into a nice layout. I hope everyone enjoyed them.
