::: Herschel :::

Baby Herschel grew like crazy in his first week of life! From a mother’s perspective this is a thankful *sigh* of relief, and a huge achievement! Now, after seeing him at 18 days {today}, he has gained over one pound! Another amazing milestone… I’ll leave you with this brilliant quote from one of the most talented and influential children’s authors of our time… Dr. Seuss. “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened. ” It sums well the rapid growth of a newborn transitioning into a fast-paced and unruly world. (It’s also an excellent reminder for all those mama’s who cherish these days, as children grow up so very fast).
