To the right of the big wedding photo is a group of photos of Micaela. The largest one in the group was taken when she was one year old. It took us a long time to teach her to point her little finger to say she was one-- we were thrilled when the photographer actually captured this moment.
Also in the grouping is this photo when she was less than one day old. She was snuggled beside me in the hospital bed looking so content after one of her first feedings . We used this picture for her birth announcement.
We love all the photos on our wall. I won't bore you by posting all of them here but I will share this last one. It's in a modest 5x7 frame and it captures the moment Micaela was brought into the world. Sorry if you think this is gory. Troy captured this picture as Micaela took her first breathe (and was screaming at the top of her lungs). I love how the light shines on her. We were fortunate to have a wonderful doctor that allowed Troy to take as many pictures as he wanted. I was so interested in getting pictures that I told him, he did not have to worry about holding my hand during the C-section-- just snap snap snap, (I knew he could hold my hand later and we would not have this moment again).
Thanks for letting me share a few of my favorite pictures with you! I hope this inspires you to display some of your favorite moments too.
