Our little party boy Oscar arrived bright and early on New Years Eve. Of all the days he could have arrived through the holiday season thanks to our kinda poor due date planning, I think he picked the best option! He’ll always have fireworks and a bunch of people excited to party with him.
My friend Jenn is an amazing birth photographer. Though my second birth experience wasn’t nearly as wild and progressed more “normally” than the first, it was still super fast. [really, an unexciting, uneventful birth is a good thing…] Jenn didn’t make it in time [from Calgary] for the labour and delivery. But she did show up right before Adam brought Morris to meet baby brother Oscar for the first time. This set of images will likely be some of the most treasured in our family over the years.
So, so much thanks to our neighbour Charlotte for rushing over at 2:30am to be with Morris. Charlotte also has the tendency to give birth very fast…so she understood the urgency when we called her in the wee hours that morning! And equal gratitude to my parents who hit the road to Canmore bright and early to welcome Oscar and care for Mo while we were in the hospital. Our little family of four got off to a pretty great start!
