I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! Mine was wonderful and extra special as it was my little guy Jakob's first Christmas. As you can imagine, I wanted to capture as many moments of Jake on camera...from him opening his presents on Christmas morning (he slept through that), taking holiday pictures in front of the tree (look above), and spending time with his older siblings in their new jammies (yeah, you get the idea).
Jake's been teething...he got four(!!!) teeth in a week and a half, and had a gnarly stomach bug that made keeping food in him impossible. So pretty much every photo op that I pictured in my head turned out pretty much the opposite. I literally don't have one "picture perfect" shot of him or him with his siblings from this last week. For a brief moment I considered waiting until he's feeling better and staging Christmas pics, but then I realized that these were the shots I was
stuck with going to get and to just be happy with the fact I got them in the first place. I will forever be reminded through these pictures that he was miserable during his first Christmas, but also how hard his brother and sister worked to make him happy and comfortable.
Sometimes things don't always work out the way we envisioned them to, but there is always something to take away from the situation.
Have a Happy Friday!!
