Rowan Ruth | Lifestyle Newborn

September 14, 2015  •  2 Comments

The best things come in the tiniest of packages. Rowan Ruth arrived into this world like a living, breathing reminder that life is beautiful and so good. She was 19 inches, born at ten to five, and her middle name was borrowed from her grandmother.   

Proud big sister Bristol learning the ropes of how to hold her brand new gonna-be playmate at two weeks new.  Grow up quick, little one.  Your sister has the energy of...well...a two year old, and there are adventures to be had together. In truth, it took little miss Rowan awhile to be coaxed to sleep for her photos.  While her mother rocked her and fed her and was awed at her ability to stay awake, I followed Bristol and her big blue eyes around the house as she went about her daily two year old adventures.  I think there is beauty in every phase of life, from two days old to the moments when we're grandparents, but following Bristol around for a little while that afternoon gave me new appreciation for the beauty of the two year old.  The world is all new and feet are fully found and everything, EVERYTHING, must be tested and tried and pushed and challenged...    With all of the two year old might, things will be climbed upon... ...boundaries will be peered over  ...our tippy-toes will be utilized and doorknobs will be reached​

...because at two we know nothing but that the world is our oyster so exploration and taking the challenge of running after it all is our current life purpose.  And at two it should be, and it is good and beautiful and healthy and absolute craziness for the parents who have created an environment where exploration is safe.  Following Bristol around had me thinking how right Kara and Preston are getting it.  I'm sure they don't feel that way every day, but I saw so much goodness and HEALTH in Bristol. I hear that some seasons of parenting are harder than others and I wonder if we don't lose sight of how right we're getting it when every little thing is being challenged and boundaries are pushed.  Growing up is hard and guiding a life as it grows up is even harder, and I look at Bristol and she is everything she should be.  She is bold and brave and the fact that she's trying out her wings at every turn means that she doesn't question her roots, which tells me her parents are loving her well. Love the shot below! Congratulations guys!  You have two beautiful daughters, and I'm so happy to have documented a snippet of this season of life for you.

there are so many things I love about these pictures. I love that you followed big sister around to snap gorgeous pics. I love the shots of baby all wrapped up in that little crib. I love that you shot in that beautiful house. Jewel just gave me a tour last week. :) I love it. And what an adorable family.
