iPhoneography: The Week the Baby Went

As I was going through this week’s iPhone pictures I realized that most of them gave a “Mama’s eye view” of sending Cameron to daycare for the first time.

The photos tell the tale of the sleepless nights and early mornings by capturing my increased intake of caffeine.

They tell of the things I did to keep positive and occupied while my baby was away from me. (Oh yeah, and more caffeine).

The photos tell the story of me waiting. Waiting to pick him up from daycare. Waiting to wrap my arms around him. Waiting to put my foot on the gas and get to him. Waiting to get out of the driver’s seat. Waiting to be where my baby was.

These pictures tell a story. They narrate a week. But they don’t tell you who I am. They don’t introduce you to ME, Laura, Mom to Camera, Lover of MamaLife.

No, that photo would be this one. This picture that is perfect and blurry all at the same time. This photo which sings the conclusion to the story told above. This photo, happiness. Fun. Mommy and son. Dancing.

About Laura O'Rourke

I’m Laura. Wife to Dan. Mama to Cameron and Gavin. Blogger. Photographer. I’ve been declared “baby crazy” by my husband. I’ve been blogging since 2003 when I was a teenager. My first blog post ever begged forgiveness for all the future blog posts that would follow. Consider that still in effect. I met my husband through blogging, I planned a wedding while blogging, and we tweeted the births of both of our sons. Consider this my memoir, my legacy, my letter to my children and my hand reaching out to other Moms. I love being a wife. I love being a Mom. I love blogging. And I can’t wait to meet you.
