Sanderling // One Week

by Ashley Weeks Cart


He is officially one week old. And we are truly in the longest, shortest time. He looks so much like his Daddy as a newborn. That forehead and towhead blonde hair!

Here he is donning his Year of the Monkey romper.

Five weeks ago, I posted a photo to Instagram of this romper, and my mom commented on the image from my dad’s account. A first for her. And I am comforted knowing that she saw this piece that I created for her grandson, even though she’ll never get to experience it in person. I feel so deeply connected to this baby, which isn’t always easy with a newborn, and I am certain that my mother has something to do with that.

Happy 1 Week Birth Day, darling Sanderling. We are so glad you’re here.
