Our little Heidi is four months old today… the time has just flown by (maybe because I have spent every spare minute watching our house get built and writing blogs!!!). I was scanning through some of the photos I have taken in those months, and have to admit I didn’t think the photos from the first few weeks were our baby – I didn’t recognise her. I won’t write about what every parent realises when looking back at photos of their newborn… because one day little Heidi will be reading this – she will have the chance to discover this for herself when she grows up and has her own kids.
Looking through the photos I appreciate how anal I can be about organising stuff. Whilst it was great to have all the photos filed under each week of her life, to see the changes occurring… I do however think there will come a time when I will have to stop doing that, because:
a. beyond her second year I am going to lose count of which week we are in, and
b. filing like that is bordering on a little scary!!!
Anyhow… here are the results of my diligent filing, in chronological order… Heidi’s first 4 months (don’t panic – it’s only as long as the song… and it is not every photos ever taken!!). I must give credit to my sister who introduced me to the song I used (Secret Heart by Feist). I fell in love with the song the first time I heard it, she included it in the wedding music mix she created for our big day two years ago and is simply perfect for this movie.
