Baby, baby, baby.



I read somewhere on a blog a few years ago that if there is one thing that ruins a blog it is a baby. Yes, truly, I am fully guilty of dousing these pages with baby, baby, baby. Back then I thought to myself that I would never allow my existence to be fenced in by a little human creature, even if she were mine. How silly I was. How very silly. A baby is the greatest human undertaking – better than any voyage or venture – I just didn’t get that. That is not to say I am through wandering, roving, trekking. Oh no. It is just to say that at this moment, on these pages, the voyage is right here in the smallest little being and I am enraptured and blithe in it. (Still, trips and such to come shortly).

Thank you so much for loving your beautiful child and sharing your feelings. It's refreshing.

Well said. Children certainly are our greatest (and most challenging) undertaking and, ultimately, our greatest journey of exploration as we not only see them grow and begin to reveal themselves - or the person they are to become, but we learn an awful lot about ourselves.

I am currently dragging my old butt up through the rocky ranges of my daughters' teenage years (although I also have a 4 year old - double bonus for me! :D), but I look at my girls and see increasingly more frequent glimpses of their adult selves and their potential and it's just the best.

i actually read your blog now MORE because i'm so excited to see Colette's gorgeous and expressive little baby face. I think she has made your photos and writing even more complex and interesting!

I think it is wonderful! I wish I had more pictures of my seven kids when they were young. They would be priceless to me now. Enjoy her, as you know, she is yours for eternity.

On the contrary, I think Colette is a wonderful addition to your blog! ( I especially loved the down dog photo, btw).

J'aime particulièrement les photos en noir et blanc et celle de Peau d'Ane
est charmante. L'attitude de Colette est fantastique, comme si elle
réfléchissait à quelque chose de précis, sans avoir conscience qu'elle est
regardée. mais peut-être songeait-elle à quelque bêtise à commettre...
J'espère qu’aujourd’hui ce commentaire parviendra sur le site de Colette : il m'est revenu (ah, les mystères de l'informatique et du réseau ... !!!)
