One Day Young.

Monday, March 10, 2014

I have a nephew who will turn one in a couple of weeks. When we FaceTimed yesterday, I watched him crawl through the house, share toys with Henry, bang walls with a wooden spoon. Since I saw him over Christmas, he's learned to feed himself Cheerios (one at a time), point to mama, clap his hands. So much happens in a week, a month, a year - it's hard to believe this journey starts at only one day.

Photographer Jenny Lewis's portrait series One Day Young features new mothers with their one-day-old babies. The shots are warm, joyful, and, as Lewis reports, surprisingly serene: "The only stories I had heard before I had my children were ones of pain straight to sleepless nights. This episode of pure joy seemed to be missing, so it was a surprise to me."


See more at Jenny Lewis's website, here. Thanks, My Modern Met. Have a wonderful Monday.

Toby's nephew is almost one year old as well, and it's insane how much he changes from visit to visit - hearing updates from Toby's sister makes me so sad we're not there to be a part of his development, but at least I still get to enjoy adorable videos and pictures =]

This made me all warm and fuzzy inside. It really does capture a different calmness to having a newborn.
