It is so hard to believe the fact your baby is already 6 weeks old AND how different they look in photos from 10 days old! When I look at these photos of my baby now, it's really noticeable how much more little all his features are. It's exciting to see him get more expressive and lifting his head but also slightly sad that they do in fact grow so fast just like everyone tells you.
We, as a western culture, tend to be eager to manipulate the reality of our world to fit into an ever-evolving, media-fueled idea of beauty. An idea that corners beauty into a very specific mold of 'one size fits all' perfection. We easily forget that life itself, people, themselves, are beautiful. Real is beautiful.
