I am very used to families messaging me when their babe’s first come home,
they are rushing to capture their new babes before the first major growth spurts hit and they look more “baby” than “newborn”.
This phone call was unusual to me because the family wanted to document their baby’s “100 Days Celebration.” Immediately I hopped onto my computer to look that up. Honestly, I had no idea what that was, do you? The 100 first days is a traditional celebration that marks the end of the first 3 months of life for a new baby — in other words, it’s the end of the fourth trimester! There’s also another tale of lore that says that most babies, way back when, did not survive past 100 days. So when they did it was cause for a big celebration!
No matter the reason, I’m glad that not only did I learn about a new culture’s celebration of babies, I fell in love with the 3 month age. I could see baby H’s growing personality and the spunk her parents have fallen in love with. Plus, I’m always game for a protective and curious (and cute) fur-sibling 🙂
Feeling a little small? Well, in the context of the cosmos, we are small.
