My dear friend Heidi had a baby! And, oh my goodness, he is beautiful! If you notice any bruising in these photos, I made the decision not to edit out the blue for a very specific reason. This little guys' entrance into this world happened about 108 hours after Heidi started in with consistent conractions. I think all of that work, both by momma and baby, deserves acknowledgement! I find so much beauty in the fact that, despite her exhaustion and pain, Heidi kept her eyes on Jesus, and he carried her through labor, one of the most cross-mirroring experiences that we go through as women. While I spent the afternoon with this new family, there was a sweet peace, as James as Heidi worked together to care for their little bundle of joy and laughter. Thank you both for letting me share in your growing joy!
