I really need a hobby.
Because my phone storage cannot handle me being Lou’s personal photographer/videographer.
Literally all I do is take 235 photos & videos of her doing the exact same mundane thing each day.
And I love every minute of it. And I hope my friends do, too, because I send them to everyone. People are probably like, “Oh, great, another photo of Rachel’s baby laying in her pack n play sucking on her pacifier, excellent.” I’m sorry, I really cannot help I birthed the world’s cutest baby. It’s a blessing & a curse! I can’t keep this cuteness to myself. She must be shared with the world! She’s been here for 6 weeks & I swear I have no fewer than 1,000 photos. I went to the doctor today & it took everything in me not to just shove my phone in everyone’s faces and say, “SEE, see what I made!”
Now how do I get her face on a jar of some pureed peas?
