Now I understand why so few photos are taken during the first few weeks of a baby’s birth. First off, the baby is often asleep. Seriously, there are only so many photos you can take of a sleeping baby. I suppose you can take photos in various outfits, but nonetheless, they are still sleeping. The second reason so few photos are taken is that you - the parents - are really freakin’ exhausted! So when your baby is awake, and you have your camera ready, capturing the moment in a photo is a gem.
This photo of Mia was taken on July 8, 2010. At this point, she was one week old. She was very active for a few hours before falling asleep once more.
