Five Months

Monday, October 17, 2016

Sometimes I'm worried my friends will think I've turned into the world's biggest jerk. I never have time for them, and I'm worried they'll take it personally. On the days Michael and I both have off I schedule client meetings and photoshoots, and unless I do something extremely last minute, I don't usually do anything at all. I feel like people think I'm making excuses if I tell them I'll have some free time in two weeks, but unless I plan super far in advance, or you're free right this second because Coco is awake and we're ready to go, then it just isn't happening. I feel bad, and yet I don't. The fact is that having a kid pretty much places everyone in your life into two distinct groups: those who have children and those who don't. Those who don't can't possibly understand what you're dealing with, and are probably unequipped to make all the adjustments you need to make to hang out. No I can't get drinks. No I can't come over (unless you want baby spit-up all over your place). No I can't be out past six because CJ goes to bed at seven. Do you have all your shots? Do you have the sniffles? Do you want to pause whatever we're doing every hour so I can feed and/or change and/or nap the baby? There are exceptions to my two groups, but they are very rare. And I am not bashing on my friends without kids. Believe me I would love to be able to go catch a movie at eight, or whatever, but I just can't anymore. Unless you want to get coffee, go to the park, or go out to eat and allow me to be anywhere from five minutes early to twenty minutes late, then it's not happening. I want to be sorry, but that's just mom life.

Anyways, with that rant out of the way I feel like I can now talk about our five month photos! I feel like CJ is getting so big, which is pretty funny because she's actually just getting long. Even though she is about 5 1/2 months old now (so technically 4 1/2 since she was early), she is still in 0-3 month clothes. The only things she wears in 3-6 are her footed onesies and some of her leggings because she is too long for the 0-3. It cracks me up. I won't be laughing so much when she's taller than me by the time she's five, but I'm laughing for now. Michael calls her our model baby. To be honest I totally think she could model, but I'm pretty sure all moms think their baby is cute enough to be a baby Gisele. Either way, I will take all the free baby swag if anyone wants me to photograph it on my perfect little squishy.

  1. These photos are the best so far - your outfit is amazing (the yellow!) and you got some great light! I especially love the show of Coco with lipstick on her cheek from your kiss and that last shot with Michael's derp face!? YESSSS

    I don't have kids but what you say here makes total sense! I bet your friends just miss you but it's hard for you! They will adjust to the new change - you still are in some ways, too!

    haha. My Mom was talking to me about how my oldest sister was such a pretty looking baby. Very cute and attractive.... and that spoiled my Dad for my second sister. XD She was a little jaundice, squished head, patchy skin, etc. In fact my Dad asked what was wrong with her at one point. lol. It's okay I was a cute baby thought ^__~ Or my Mom is lying to me to make me feel better. lol.

    Those jeans are so cute. It makes me miss my old mustard colored jeans. I wore them all the time, until I wore a hole through them.
