This baby boy shares the same name as one of my favorite literary characters of all time. James Fraser.
If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you’ve probably heard me talk about my love of Jamie Fraser from Outlander. He’s earnest, flawed, funny, kind, and always has the best of intentions. He’s a good man and even when he makes mistakes, he does what he thinks is right.
Isn’t that what we want all our sons to be? Good men?
It’s funny to think that we start to teach our children how to be good people from the first days of their lives. But that is how it happens. We are given an infant and it is up to us as parents to make them into kind and loving people.
I have said it before and I will say it again, I will always be honored to share such special times with my clients. Watching three people become a family is magical. I love being able to document this time in a family’s life, it is fleeting. Before you know it, this baby is going to head to preschool, learn how to ride a bike, play soccer, go to a dance, head to college, all of the things that happens in a life. But when he is 7 pounds, it seems like those things are so far away. As a mom that just sent her son to high school last week, I can assure you, it isn’t that far away.
So new parents, hear me out. Enjoy it. I know this season seems exhausting (it is) and that you will never sleep again (you will). But enjoy this time. It’s beautiful and I promise you, you are going to miss it.
