This family is on my blog often, their lives have been well documented. I cherish our relationship very much and am really looking forward to learning all about baby Arlo. Living in Toronto it was likely I’d have to miss his birth, although we did some planning for birth photography. The irony is on the Sunday night that I left the city, passing through their neighbourhood, I messaged momma to say ‘any baby, I can come right now?’ There was no babe yet. And what do you know – less than 24 hours later she was in labour, surrounded by her all people. I missed it. I missed by only hours! Instead we gathered at the cottage near Huntsville yesterday. They cuddled in bed. Changed bums. Fed babies. You know the drill. It was lovely.
