  1. […] I will always, always love you and make sure that you are taken care of. I made myself that promise when I first heard your heartbeat.I promised myself, and you, that no matter what I had to do, no matter what I had to sacrifice or […]

  2. What an amazing recollection. I can imagine how overwhelming that would have been. So much so that you wouldn’t even know what you were getting into. 🙂 Probably a good thing, too. We couldn’t possibly know what it’s like – the hard and the good!

    • Courtney Kirkland says:

      I agree. I don’t think any amount of reading or discussing motherhood with veteran parents can truly prepare you for what it’s really like to have a kid of your own.

  3. They are life-changing, and it’s crazy to think that we used to not have them. Can’t imagine life without my Noah!

  4. Kate says:

    I was 24, but felt the same way. I thought I would be 27 or 28 before I had my first kid! And here I am, 27 about to have my 2nd.

    The pregnancy changed everything for Todd & me. It was a hard adjustment, but a glorious one too!

    And your little guy is definitely precious!

    • Courtney Kirkland says:

      Thank you, Kate! Having a child definitely brought some changes to our marriage, as well. Most of them were for the better and we had to learn to work through whatever issues arose for the sake of our child. I always assumed I’d be 26 or 27, too. What a surprise it was!

  5. Shell says:

    Definitely a life changer- but for the better. 🙂

    What a cute little life changer and such a sweet, heart-warming post. You’re one great photographer Courtney!
