My blog posts and jewelry design have taken a bit of a backseat over the summer as Brenton and I prepared for the arrival of our baby, due October 5th. Pregnancy is exhausting, plus there is lots to do such as acquiring all of the little necessities that baby will need, getting the baby's room ready and trying to go on as many vacations and weekend getaways as possible before we become three!
Our bundle of joy decided to surprise us and arrived early, four weeks to the day. What I had thought were just really bad stomach cramps around 1:00 am in the morning two weeks ago, that would soon go away, ended up being contractions. Nine and a half hours later, our beautiful son was born! I was completely overwhelmed with emotions of fear and joy. I was worried because he wasn't due for another four weeks but also overjoyed as we were about to meet the tiny being that moved about, quite frequently, inside my stomach for the past eight months!
Liam Ellis Klik was born Saturday September 7th weighing a healthy 6 lbs., 13 oz. Tears flowed as we heard his first cry and our hearts melted the second we saw him. They were the most amazing moments of my life.
Now that we are home from the hospital, we are getting to know one another. Some moments are quiet, others not so much. But they are all beautiful moments. I captured this photo of my son as he was sleeping in my arms. I always have my Nexus phone, which has a decent camera, or my professional camera nearby so that I can capture moments like these.
While my jewelry design has been put on hold, temporarily, I have not lost my love for it! I was actually in the middle of creating a fall collection the week that he arrived. I do hope to finish it before the season is over. But jewelry can always be created, moments like these can not be missed.

CONGRATULATIONS, Kathleen and Brenton!! Little Liam is so, so adorable. Liam will fill your hearts with so much joy - day after day. Treasure these moments as those little boys grow up to not so quiet little boys! ;-) Looking forward to meeting Liam. And you are so right, jewelry can definitely wait - in the grand scheme of things, its moments like these that really count. Beads and tools will always be there. Just like everyone told me when mine were that tiny - the days may seem long but the years fly by so fast!ReplyDelete
Congrats! what a perfectly beautiful little boy!! I can remember how amazing it was to just watch my baby sleep in my arms. it is a great quiet moment when the rest of the day can full of so many things to do to take care of your newest family memberReplyDelete
I don't have to tell you to take lots of photos because he will grow up so fast. The photos will become more and more precious as the years go by. My baby is 45 this year and I always wish I had more pictures of her.ReplyDelete
I am so pleased for you.
He is so beautiful, Kathleen and you captured such a precious moment. I hope motherhood is treating you well. It can be really tough being a new mom!ReplyDelete

What a gorgeous little being! Congratulations on jumping into motherhood early and eagerly. Indeed, jewelry can wait, snuggles are pretty tough to beat. I know I wouldn't have nearly any pictures if it weren't for my phone.ReplyDelete

Clearly dear Liam couldn't wait to meet his beloved mama and papa :) He's such a beautiful jewel, who was a very healthy weight indeed - our gorgeous boy was only 7lbs exactly (one ounce more) full-term! He'll be 18 on Wednesday *gulp*ReplyDelete
