“A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week in 2014”
What better way to introduce our daughter to you than at the start of our project for the year? Exactly one week ago today, Esmé Juniper Jones came into the world all pink and soft and screaming her little head off. She weighted 7 pounds, 3 ounces and was 20.5″ long. Her birth was a very quick one, and ever since she got here our lives have been 7 pounds and 3 ounces better. She is amazing.
I decided this was the perfect time for us to do this project, as it’s the start of a new year and the start of a new life. There’s really no other time in a person’s life when they change quite so much as in their first year. I’m already looking forward to seeing all of her changes and progress in 2014.
I have another post with some really amazing photos of her (taken by our friend Eden) on her very first day outside of the womb. I’ll post those sometime next week along with the story of her birth!
