Beautiful Cale Palmer. I don’t think they make new born babies any cuter than this. Isn’t he just perfect? I was scheduled to do my friend, Danielle’s maternity photos yesterday afternoon. When I called her in the morning and she did not pick up, I had a feeling she may have already had the baby. I got a call later from the hospital, Cale had arrived!
Danielle was AWESOME. She did a totally natural birth in the hospital. For those of you that have read my daughter’s birth story, you know that if I had been in the hospital instead of at home I would have had an epidural FOR SURE. I am not going to lie to all of you soon-to-be mommies that read my blog. Childbirth is painful. But, just like Danielle, both of my births went super fast and there were no complications. So even if it did hurt a ton, it was over before I knew it. But Danielle-that is amazing. When I told my husband that Danielle had actually done a natural birth in the hospital, he said in his MOST sarcastic voice: “Wow, a woman actually breathing through the pain, what a concept.”
Men. I can’t tell you how much that comment pissed me off. Just bc he has been with me through two natural homebirths, does not mean that he has ANY idea of the kind of pain we feel when giving birth. He made it sound like it was not such a big deal, that women have been giving birth with no meds for thousands of years, so it is not a huge feat when you are offered drugs during the most painful experience of your life, and don’t take them. Ooooh, don’t you just want to shake them upside down sometimes? Danielle-I give you permission to hit Adam next time you see him:)
Anyways, I just love taking brand-new baby photos in the hospital. They are just so new and fresh-even just a few days makes a huge difference. If you are interested in having photos done right after the birth, please contact me. I have a mini package where I come to the hospital for 15-30 minutes and get some of these wonderful, brand-new photos.
