There is an amusing thing with newborns— for them everything is new: the world, sounds, images, sensations. At the same time they make things new themselves — This is now a new family and the house is changed and there are new tasks, expectations, and simple joys.
I have a friend who said that he does not take pictures, he remembers the best moments. But I believe that our memory is changeable and selective, and therefore it is important to save reminiscences securely.
By the time these intimate pictures got published the main heroes of them have changed a lot. For little children, the passage of time is most notable and I am glad that these families have pictures that will help them recall how tiny newborns' hands were and how their first outfits looked like.
