Project 365 | Month 5 | Charlie’s Fresh 48

On May 10th, 2016 at 9:45 pm our third child, Charlie Hiro Devine, was born. If you’d like to read about his birth story, here it is.

These were photographed on his second day. I was tired but I was determined to take a few images of him at the hospital. I knew the memory of those few days at the hospital would fade as soon as we got home. The vernix still stuck on his hair, the sweet smell of my newborn baby, his silky brand new skin, and us, his parents, exhausted and adrenaline high – I wanted to capture these things. This was the beginning of Charlie’s life outside of the womb.

Charlie’s older brothers Hue and Kai came to meet their baby brother for the first time. It was so sweet to see them quietly gazing at Charlie and his details. They were touching Charlie’s little head and feet, and were amazed at how little they were. Hue stared at Charlie’s tummy going up and down with each breath and he was mesmerized by how fast it was moving! I was relieved to see that my boys seemed accepting of our new addition to our family.

Charlie is mastering the basics of living outside of the womb, breathing and eating. Everyday, we are more in love with this little baby. My boys are so sweet to Charlie. They say “He is so cute!” all the time. It melts my heart seeing the three of them together.
