Happy due date Ransom Whittaker! 52 days on the outside and life is fiiiine. #ransomwhittaker #finleyrilla
Ya know what I mean?!?!
Gettin' spooky over here. #finleyrilla
I was supposed to be 39 weeks pregnant today. Even though it sounds silly, one thing I'm grieving is that I wasn't ready to NOT be pregnant. I didn't have time to mentally/emotionally prepare for NOT having Ransom in my belly. I feel cheated out of 6 weeks of him in my belly. Even writing it sounds ridiculous, because I was super uncomfortable this pregnancy...I can't explain it, but I feel it! Here's a video I sent Adam from my hotel room in Tulsa two days before having Ransom. #ransomwhittaker
My daughter is cooler than me. #finleyrilla
Totally twitterpated. 💓💓 #ransomwhittaker
UPDATE: A few people have asked me if I feel adjusted yet. That's a big fat NOOO! But we're getting there and I'm one of the happiest people in Tennessee! It's so awesome to have my family together again! Newborns are so easy. I mean, the nursing and diaper changing is constant, but other than that they just sleep. Newborns AND toddlers...that's a little more challenging... Ransom passes more gas/poop than I could even imagine. Adam and I crack up because the little dude has some adult sized toots. Sometimes I go to bed at 7pm just so I'm well-rested for all of Ransom's waking ups during the night. Finley likes to notice Ransom and say bebe! but refuses to hold him or give him any real attention. She just says No and shakes her head. He's pretty cute, so I'm sure she'll come around eventually. I've gotten a few inquiries about fall mini-sessions and various other shoots. I wish I could! But I will be taking the rest of the year off (once I catch up on photo editing), and am scheduling shoots starting in January--which is actually an amazing time of year to shoot. The colour scheme (all tans, browns, golds...mmmm!) is my favourite out of the whole year! Although I love the goldenrod that's out right now too...but I digress... I've gotten a lot of questions about Ransom's name... •Ransom comes from the Space Trilogy from CS Lewis, and also because we believe that Jesus paid our ransom on the cross. •Whittaker comes from...you guessed it!! Adventures on Odyssey! If you don't know what that is, you should look it up. Especially if you have kids. I'm wearing my old wedding band because I haven't worn a ring in a month (the NICU has a bare below the elbows policy) and my favourite wedding band feels like it weighs 10lbs! I'm going to have to slowly work my way up to it! #ransomwhittaker
