When my grandma, a mother of 7, held my baby girl for the first time, she told me that a newborn baby greatly increases the love in a family and in a home. I could absolutely feel this love as I walked into the B's house to film little Andrew Scott. It was a privilege to be in their home as there are few things as peaceful and sweet as the first days with a new babe.
Baby Andy hit the jackpot with his beautiful, calm mother. She knows exactly what she's doing and doesn't stress. Her pregnancy was incredibly difficult, so she seemed as light as a bird and full of energy. I was in awe.
I teared up multiple times as I edited this film. I seriously love babies. And a baby being held by sweet little girls was just too much. Andy's 4 older sisters seemed overjoyed to have a brother in the house and couldn't wait to be first in line to hold him and stroke his soft hair. And watching Andy's father hold his new son got me every time. I am so grateful I could stare into the eyes of this sweet baby boy.
